We’ll tell you everything you need to know about Uxas, Darkseid.
In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Batman and Wonder Woman’s superhero team takes on the villain Uxas aka Darkseid. He is one of the biggest and most famous DC Comics villains. You need to know this about him.
Darkseid was created in February 1971 by Jack Kirby. He is the ruler of Apokolips, one of the most dangerous planets in the DC universe.
Darkseid, or Uxas
Originally his name was Uxas, but nowadays Darkseid calls himself differently. he is a New God, one of the beings who live in the Fourth World and who can farm well through their connection with the Source (primal energy in the universe). His origin story was slightly changed with New 52, but he remained the tyrant of Apokolips.
Apokolips counts as the rival planet of New Genesis, where the good New Gods live. A battle is going on between the New Gods, as the Highfather (aka Izaya) wants to defeat his brother Darkseid. He thinks this is important because Apokolips represents the evil New Gods.
They defeat and colonize other planets. The inhabitants of those planets are turned into slaves, the Parademons that we can see in the movie.
Darkseid is one of the most powerful Super Villains in the DC Universe. He can use the Omega Force, which allows him to use the Omega Beam. That is an energy beam so strong that it can disintegrate anything it touches.
Inside the DCEU
In the DCEU, Darkseid came to Earth thousands of years ago to conquer the planet. But the people fought back; there was a collaboration between Amazons, Atlanteans, gods of Olympus, humans and even a Green Lantern.
The war ended with Uxas being severely battered by Ares and recalling his invading force. He left behind the three Mother Boxes, which were divided by the Amazons, inhabitants of Atlantis, and the humans. Since then, Darkseid hasn’t returned to Earth, but now it’s up to his nephew Steppenwolf to get the Mother Boxes and use them for the Anti-Life Equation.
The Anti-Life Equation
That is the greatest power in the universe. It is a dangerous formula that allows you to completely subdue even the most powerful being. Not even Superman can withstand it. We will not tell you whether or what he does with it. For that, you should of course look at Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
