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

Alter Ego: None

  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, me again, replying to my own comment. In short, I have seen many instances of Darkseid using mental powers over the decades, so I am proposing he has Psionics: 26AP's (like Sorcery but only able to duplicate Mental Powers, linked to Will). I have seen him duplicate things like Broadcast Empath, Control, Phobia, Mind Probe, Remote Sensing, Telepathy, project other forms of energy besides his Omega Effect, inflict pain with a touch, and perhaps other instances I have not seen. Some may attribute these to technology, but I am strained to accept such a simple explanation. Thank you.

    3. OR, perhaps you can also exchange mental stats: Will:20, Mind:26 (so Psionics of 20AP's). I also had the idea of giving him a Spirit:30, the reason being I heard Raven say that Darkseid was "an empathetic black hole", into which she nearly lost herself. Kid Flash (Wally) running into him said it was "like running into a mountain". I always considered him to be one of the most indestructible and immutable characters in comics! Thank you

  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.

  3. Who hasn't been fascinated with this superhero that is so different from other superheroes, not having any special powers at all save his cunning? Starting as a DC Comics character, the dark knight now invades not just the television and movie screens but also video games. Batman video games are created to allow the Caped Crusader's fans live the life of a superhero, saving lives and a protecting the residents of Gotham City from the evils lurking when the streets get dark. https://www.buyyoutubesubscribers.in/
