Enormously powerful and evil beyond comparison, Darkseid rules the planet of Apokolips with an iron fist. Craving total intergalactic domination, he has set his sights on Earth, recruiting other cosmic villains in a plan to invade and destroy the planet. Though he usually lets his henchmen do his dirty work, Darkseid has the terrifying ability to project deadly Omega Effect beams from his eyes and snatch up victims in his giant capture claw.
