Bonuses: Omega Effect: If Continuum Control's Energy Blast attack earns RAP's equal to or grater than twice the target's Body, the target is disintegrated and their atoms scattered throughout the cosmos. Darkseid can reintegrate them later making a successful Action Check against an OV/RV of twice the target's Body.

Limitations: Miscellaneous: Continuum Control, Dimension Travel and Warp are powered by absorbing the X-Element into his body.  Treat all Powers as if they had an R# of 2. If any fail, he has exhausted his supply of the X-Element and must return to his fortress in Armagetto, on Apokolips, and undergo a process that takes 10 AP's of time.

Advantages: Area Knowledge (Apokolips); Leadership

Drawbacks: Catastrophic Irrational Attraction to discovering the Anti-Life Equation

  1. Hi, first time here, thank you for this site! I have many stats but this is a great resource. Anyway, due to previous write-ups of Darkseid in 1st ed, and in the comics, he seemed not to use his strength that much in earlier comics but to mostly just stand there like a mountain and let minions do his work. I personally swapped two stats for: Str:16 & Body:22. He is still strong enough to hurt Superman, while he is just darn near indestructible! I still don't see Darkseid soiling his hands in in a petty fist fight that much, but seeing a tactical nuke hardly faze him...that is scary!

  2. Hello Ed in the Mayfair DC Heroes RPG 3rd Edition Game set page 166 Darkseid's strength has been updated to 25 APs. Everything else is the same as it was in the Who's Who Vol rpg supplemental. The 3rd Edition rpg was published in 1993 a year after The Who's Who Vol 1 supplemental.
