Immortal; Super-strength; Superhuman Stamina; Invulnerability; His Omega Beams capable of finding targets through time and space can produce a variety of effects, from teleportation, to transmutation, and of course destruction. Darkseid has shown psionic abilities, specifically mind control and telekinesis; Darkseid possesses a cunning superhuman intellect; His Mother Box allows him limitless information as well as Boom Tube access that allows him to travel to any point in this or any universe; The whole planet of Apokolips at his beck and call.

Son of Yuga Khan and Heggra, Darkseid is the ruler of the planet Apokolips, a post he obtained after assassinating his mother. He is obsessed with finding the Anti-Life Equation in order to use it to rule the universe; this goal also includes conquering his rival planet, New Genesis, ruled by the Highfather. A destructive war between the two worlds was stopped only with a diplomatic exchange of the sons of Highfather and Darkseid. Darkseid's son Orion is surrendered to the Highfather while Darkseid receives Scott Free, who later becomes the master escape artist Mister Miracle. This turns out to be a setback for Darkseid with his biological son growing up to value and defend the ideals of New Genesis in opposition to his father.
