Darkseid is one of the oldest New Gods and is the mad ruler of Apokolips. Darkseid spends most of his free time trying to rule the universe and acquire the anti-life equation. With a wide and frightening array of powers, there are few who can oppose him, unless you count
In DC’s Final Crisis, the New God Orion has been killed and Darkseid is attacking Earth, with the help of the Anti-Life Equation. There’s a series of crazy events, but they ultimately lead to a tired Batman confronting the evil deity. Realizing the entire universe is in peril, Batman disregards his vow not to use guns. He shoots Darkseid with the same bullet used to kill Orion, decimating the New God, but not before the villain unleashes his Omega Beams on the Dark Knight, taking the hero with him.
