History: (From The Apokolips Sourcebook by Mayfair Games)

Darkseid is a master schemer who uses his powerful subordinates to do the work while he gains all the credit. His search for the Anti-Life Equation, a formula that he believes will give him total control over all thinking creatures has pitted him against both the New Gods of Supertown and the heroes of Earth.

Although he never carries any equipment, Darkseid always keeps a few units of X-Element on his person. He spends his time preparing new schemes and governing his planet. His ultimate concern has been the Anti-Life Equation, but additional pursuits, such as destroying New Genesis or invading Olympus, have also occupied his time.
