Love him. Serve great Darkseid. Wear your pointed helmets proudly where he leads. Die for him -- and reward Granny.
~ Granny Goodness

Granny Goodness is a villainess from the DC comics and media. She is a member of the extraterrestrial pantheon of gods known as the New Gods and a loyal follower of Darkseid.


Granny Goodness grew up as a peasant on the planet Apokolips, until one day, she was taken from her parents, and trained to be one of Darkseid's elite soldiers. She was ordered to train a certain attack dog that she grew very fond of. After the dog was trained, she was ordered to kill it. At first, she instead killed the soldier who issued the command, but then had no choice but to kill the dog when Darkseid ordered it to attack her. Darkseid, then, decided that Granny Goodness was a valuable asset; if she could train the dog to blindly obey Darkseid's orders, she could do the same to people. She tortured and brainwashed the youth of Apokolips in order to provide Darkseid with hardened warriors.

Granny Goodness was also in charge of Apokolips youth home for a long time, which was more akin to a child prison than a care home - she was very cruel to her wards but believed she was doing good by breaking their will, however she never succeeded in breaking the will of a young boy under her care who would grow into Mister Miracle and she has never forgiven him for managing to escape her grasp.
