One of the most powerful beings in the universe, Darkseid is the living embodiment of evil and absolute monarch of the planet Apokolips. He is dedicated to the downfall of New Genesis, where his rivals, the New Gods reside. Darkseid operates on a scale that terrifyingly dwarfs those of the world's greatest heroes. He commands a legion of powerful creatures known as Parademons and his court consists of some of the most depraved, sadistic and frighteningly powerful beings in the universe. Darkseid's near limitless might is matched by his immeasurable intelligence, and while he generally prefers to manipulate and control others to reach his goals, he is able to single-handedly stand toe-to-toe against the entirety of the Justice League. Darkseid seeks to enslave all life in the universe, reshape existence in his image and exert ultimate control. His desire is to eliminate free will and control everyone so that they bow beneath his feet and do whatever he says, and he certainly has the means to do it. His extraordinary physical strength, intelligence, godlike powers and army of Parademons make him not only a threat to our world and its heroes, but to every world within reach. He’s no less than the single most dangerous villain in the universe.
