While beings like The Anti-Monitor are popular right now, thanks to the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths , there is one foe who has withstood the test of time and has become a monstrous villain: Darkseid. In the end, it could be a testimony to his tenacity. Then again, it may be that he doesn't learn his lessons. Hence, the reason they're a few more heroes everyone forgets defeated Darkseid. So much so that DC and Marvel decided to team the two groups together in a giant one-shot. In the real world, the book was written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by Walt Simonson. In the blended comic universe, the teams had to defeat not only Darkseid by Dark Phoenix. They way they won was to convince the Jean Grey part of the Dark Phoenix that Darkseid was manipulating her. In the end, the ruler of Apokolips ended up a part of the Source Wall.
Armed with the Anti-Life Equation, the Dark Lord of Apokolips and father of Orion seeks to control all sentient life throughout the universe…and beyond. In the known DC Multiverse, one name stands above all others when it comes to supreme villainy—Darkseid. To this end, Darkseid employs the vast power at his disposal to seek out the Anti-Life Equation, a mysterious formula that would allow him to remove all free will from every sentient life-form in the known universe. Ruling over a court of equally twisted and sadistic individuals and commanding an army of mindless Parademons who obey his every whim, Darkseid can be defeated, but never truly destroyed.
In another universe, the Old Gods were immortal beings who relied on the prayers of mortals to remain in power, but nevertheless cared nothing about them. Soon the rebellious Uxas began putting lies and corruption in the minds of these Gods which sparked a war between them. As the gods began to die, Uxas began stealing the Gods' power for himself.
