: [surprisingly shocked] Darkseid! Darkseid
: Greetings, Superman. Batman
: You tricked Brainiac into freeing you from your extra-dimensional prison. Darkseid
: I promised him he would unleash power beyond imagining. I fulfilled our bargain. To the letter. Zatanna
: Yeah, and he was also promised great knowledge. Darkseid
: And I delivered. What higher lesson is there than this: Never trust Darkseid
: Get off my planet
: Normally a threat from you is worth considering, but with both the Mother Box and Sensory Matrix Field Generator at my command, Id rather think you should get off my
planet. I will transform this world into a new Apokolips. Not Hell on Earth
. Something far, far worse
Do not concern yourself with what I have done; rather tremble at the thought of what I am about to do. I like you, Glorious Godfrey! Youre a shallow, precious child — the Revelationist — happy with the sweeping sound of words! But I am the Revelation! The Tiger-Force at the core of all things! When you cry out in your dreams — it is Darkseid that you see!

: Grandpa! That man is scary! Make him go away! Man
: Hush, child! Its not polite to embarrass strangers! Little Girl
: Im afraid Grandpa! Man
: Why, this gentleman is probably in the cast of some show here! Arent you, sir? Darkseid
: No, Grandpa! Im the real

I am many things, Kal-El. But here, I am God.
Superman: Thats for Dan Turpin.
Superman: The good man you murdered.
: Had I known one humans death would pain you so, I would have killed more. And kill more, I shall. Carry that agony with you into oblivion, Superman.
Suzy: Darkseid will come to Earth and annihilate us all; crush us under the rock of his unyielding will. All you see here will be destroyed. Nothing will be spared. He will foul the fields of paradise beyond repair.
Cathy: Even my mommys house?
People of Earth, I am Darkseid, Lord of Apokolips! Here is your savior, cowed and broken. I have crushed him as easily as I have crushed all who have dared to oppose me throughout the cosmos. I am power unlike any you have ever known: absolute, infinite, and unrelenting. You have no choice but to prepare for a long dark future as my subjects and my slaves. I hope you appreciate, Kal-El, that everything that happens from this point is on your head. The skies will rain fire, the oceans will boil, the streets will run red with the blood of billions. Only then, after your last pitiful hope is extinguished, will I end your life. Lets go. I. Am. The. New. God. All is one in Darkseid. This mighty body is my church. When I command your surrender, I speak with three billion voices. When I make a fist to crush your resistance. It is with three billion hands! When I stare into your eyes and shatter your dreams. And break your heart. It is with six billion eyes! Nothing like Darkseid has ever come among you. Nothing will again. I will take you to a hell without exit or end. And there I will murder your souls! And make you crawl and beg! And die! Die! DIE FOR DARKSEID! You turned your back and I damaged your world. Deprived your people from its powers, its hopes, its futures
and itself. What will you do when your friends, your enemies, your lover, are all Darkseid? When there is one body. One mind. One will. One life that is Darkseid. Will you be the enemy of all existence, then? How ironic is it, Son of Krypton?
Scott Free: You
What did you do? WHAT DID YOU DO?!!
Darkseid: Darkseid does not do.
Are you sure you can win against me? You know what I am. You know the doubt in your heart. You so-called heroes are false gods, all of you. And when people stop believing in you, youll shatter like glass.
Darkseid: The lost son of Jor-El.
Clark: Darkseid. My father sent me to protect this planet. And I will fight you to my last breath.
Darkseid: There must be a part of you thats disgusted by how easily your people fell to me.
Clark: They may not be perfect, but I believe even in the darkest soul, theres always hope. People want to believe in something greater, and it may be easier to hate, but its stronger to love.
: Is it? Eons have passed since I came face-to-face with a force that could possibly tip the balance to the light. You are the light! You cast out the darkness from Oliver Queen
, and you will obliterate my darkness from the rest of the world if you are not stopped! You will surrender to me. You will lose your soul. I will annihilate you!
This hellscape is Apokolips, Darkseids domain, with danger facing us around every corner. And none of that will prepare you for Darkseid himself. He is the single greatest threat to our world. We may be fools to be here, but we would be greater fools if we left Darkseid unchallenged. I have turned one hundred thousand worlds to DUST, looking for Anti-Life - looking for those who robbed me of my glory. I will stride across their bones and bask in the glow of Anti-Life, and all of existence shall. Be. MINE.
