Darkseid[nb 1] is a New God from Apokolips and ally to the Light.[2]



For unspecified reasons, Darkseid entered into a partnership with the Light. He sent technology to Earth via boom tubes.[3] The first tests took place in Bialya prior to September 4, including the delivery and study of the New Genesphere.[4] The Light later received shipments of Apokoliptan weapons.[5][6]

Through Desaad, Intergang also received Apokoliptan and stolen New Genesian technology.[7]

After Savage stole the Warworld and issued a warning not to attack Earth, he headed to Apokolips where Darkseid was waiting for him. Darkseid greeted Savage as an equal, giving him a vigorous handshake as the neanderthal reassured him that it was "business as usual".[2]
