The Coluan, Brainiac, was a genius without peer. But. I. Am. A God. I could not allow an errant intellect to steal the object of my vengeance. Superman refused to submit to my will, denied my conquest of Earth, and killed my son, Kalibak. He suffered and perished. But not until I told him exactly what would happen after he died. Kara Zor-El proved quite resilient, but eventually, DeSaad broke her. She is a powerful weapon--a natural leader for my new, invincible breed of parademons, cloned from the DNA of Superman himself. Superman robbed me of my blood. Now, our score is settled. That is the will of Darkseid!
~ Darkseid in his ending
Darkseid is a DLC villain in Injustice 2. He is the God of Apokolips and father of his deceased son Kalibak.
He was voiced by Michael-Leon Wooley, who voiced the same character in Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Young Justice and Audrey II of the 2003 Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors.
Darkseid appeared as a cameo during an arena transition at the Hall of Justice from a portal directly to Apokolips.
Darkseid arrived on Earth because Superman killed his son, Kalibak. Darkseid is also after the Anti-Life Equation held by Wonder Woman.
Darkseid defeated Brainiac and killed Superman. He took Supergirl and cloned Superman's DNA for new Parademons based on Kryptonians.
Darkseid is very ruthless and is considered very superior above others, more so than both Brainiac and Superman. However, he does seem to care about his son, Kalibak. When he discovered Superman killed his son, he traveled to Earth to avenge Kalibak's death while conquering it.
Powers and Abilities
Darkseid has many abilities like his comic book version.
Superhuman Strength: Darkseid is an extremely powerful, who possesses colossal super-strength. Darkseid can easily overpower and any being, he can bend and break virtually any material, even the strongest of metals. In this universe, even Superman after becoming more ruthless and fighting at full power, could barely best him.
Superhuman Speed: Darkseid can react, maneuver, he also can react in microseconds. This lets him outpace even the likes of Superman.
Omega Effect: Darkseid wields a cosmic energy field called "Omega Effect". This effect allows him to transverse through time (chronokinesis) and space (teleport), enabling him to break barriers and force-fields.
Omega Beams: Darkseid's focuses this power as a form of energy that he can fires from anywhere on his body, usually his eyes. It is capable of teleporting the target to any location Darkseid chooses and recall them later or erasing the target from the universe and similarly reform them. He has pinpoint control over his Beams, his perfect aim allows it to travel in straight lines, bend, twist or curve. Nothing can withstand his Omega Beam.
Master Combatant: Darkseid is a highly-trained Apokoliptian warrior. He has held his own against powerful opponents, such as Superman. Furthermore, he can best even those who are more skilled than him because of his 200,000 plus years of combat experience.
High Intellect: Darkseid being a god, is smarter than most beings in the universe. While not displayed as much as in the comics, several of his intros have him outright rebuke Brainiac for saying that he could best him mentally. This implies that he is as if not even smarter.
