DARKSEID: Lord of the Omega Effect
"The only rules that mean anything here are the ones we make ourselves. Your honor code can't help you here. Reach out with your soul -- and see what's at stake. We clash on the ultimate battlefield for a prize too precious to lose -- too vast to be caged by your cramped comprehension. The only prize that exists. Existence itself."
Who is DARKSEID?
DARKSEID is a DC Comics supervillain who first appeared in Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #134 (November 1970) and was created by writer-artist Jack Kirby. DARKSEID is one of the most powerful characters in the DC Universe. He is worshiped as the "God of Evil", DARKSEID is the supreme monarch of planet Apokolips, considered as one of Superman's greatest adversaries, and he seeks to control all living things with the Anti-Life Equation.
Comics where DARKSEID first appeared
DARKSEID started life as Uxas, second in line to the throne of Apokolips, Uxas killed his mother, to wrest control of Apokolips from her after his father, was trapped on the Source Wall in his attempt to unlock the secret of The Source. Uxas also killed his brother, to steal from him the Omega Effect. With power, a following, and a drive to accomplish his goals without regret or remorse, Uxas took up his God Name: DARKSEID.
DARKSEID's goal was to eliminate all free will from the universe and reshape it into his own image. To this end, he sought to unravel the mysterious Anti-Life Equation, which gives its user complete control over the thoughts and emotions of all living beings in the universe.
While he has yet to obtain a working copy of the Anti-Life Equation, DARKSEID has tried on several other occasions to achieve dominance of the universe through other methods. He has a special interest in Earth, as he believes humans possess collectively within their minds most, fragments of the Anti-Life Equation. DARKSEID intends to probe the minds of every human in order to piece together the Equation. During his efforts to secure the Equation, he encountered and battled many of Earth's superheroes, chief among them Superman, a relationship which was extremely antagonistic. DARKSEID and Superman clashed many times, with the Man of Steel almost always gaining the upperhand.
DARKSEID next attempt on Earth involved Superman's cousin, a brainwashed Supergirl. Superman not happy with what DARKSEID did to his cousin, was set into an unparalleled fit of rage as he hurls DARKSEID into the sun where they attempted to destroy each other. Superman beats DARKSEID unconscious enough to throw him into the Source Wall,.
Eventually Superman would return and release DARKSEID from the Source Wall. Though his new found freedom will be met with an untimely demise in the hands of his son, Orion, as DARKSEID was in the middle of planning the fall of the Fourth World. The battle was a furious exchange of blows but at the end of it all, DARKSEID has his heart ripped from his chest by Orion.
Comicbook death's almost always are never permanent. So, when DARKSEID "died" his essence was thrown back through time and space, landing on Earth. It is revealed that DARKSEID finally discovered the Anti-Life Equation, and is using it to create a power-base on earth. DARKSEID now is an evil businessman who is referred to only as "Dark Side".
But later he found a new host body that rebirth him to his old self, and his old familiar look.
DARKSEID then gains the fullest of his power. Batman tried to stop DARKSEID by shooting a gun with a radion bullet, while DARKSEID simultaneously hits Batman with the Omega Sanction. DARKSEID is mortally wounded, which caused DARKSEID to fall through the multiverse, he drags all of time and space in the entire multiverse into a doomsday singularity with him. DARKSEID at this time is beyond physical attack, as he now almost entirely controls reality itself. With his body poisoned by radion, DARKSEID's spirit continued to survive by vibrating at a frequency similar to the multiverse, Superman learned about the vibration, and created an opposite vibration to cancel him out for good.

POWERS & ABILITIES
Note: Due to the nature of comicbooks being an on-going tale, the character's powers along with his appearance, is in a constant state of flux.
New God Physiology: The beings of Apokolips call themselves Gods and live outside of normal time and space in a realm called the Fourth World. These New Gods have evolved due to their close proximity to the Source, a primeval energy, believed to be one of the ultimate foundations of the Universal Expression of Energy, along with their superior technology, into beings of genetic stability and evolutionary perfection. The denizens of New Genesis are immortal, stronger, faster, and smarter than homo sapiens, despite their resemblance to the same
Superhuman Strength: DARKSEID is an extremely powerful alien hailing from planet Apokolips, who possesses an extreme degree of colossal super-strength. DARKSEID's full strength potential varies depending on the incarnation. Overall, because he is a high-tier cosmic being, DARKSEID can easily overpower and kill humans and most galactic beings. As such, he can bend and break through reinforced steel, crush wood, and any other man-made materials, and can lift extremely heavy objects, decimate full-sized buildings and other structures with his might.
Superhuman Speed: Although rarely displayed, DARKSEID can react and maneuver faster than the healthiest and strongest human athlete who partakes in daily exercise.
Superhuman Stamina: It is generally accepted that DARKSEID can maintain continuous movement and strenuous exercise for unlimited periods of time without ever getting weary or tired in the process, and it that regard, he can battle other aliens for extended amounts of time before tiring.
Invulnerability: DARKSEID is extremely resistant to most forms of physical and mental harm. DARKSEID's full durability capacity varies depending on the incarnation. Overall, because he is a high-tier cosmic being, humans couldn't even begin to harm him, bullets bounce off him, rockets, bombs and lasers won't even leave a mark on him, and high-voltage energy emissions can't penetrate through him. He is completely immune to all earthly diseases and viruses.
Immortality: As a god of New Genesis, DARKSEID live almost indefinitely, as he can't age, wither, or degrade. However, though it is nearly impossible for him to die, other high-tier aliens can kill him.
Omega Effect: DARKSEID wields a cosmic energy field called "Omega Effect", which proves integral, as it is the core from which his other abilities manifest from. This effect allows him to transverse through time and space, also enabling him to break interpretable barriers and force-fields.
Omega Beams: He focuses this power as a form of energy that he fires from his eyes. This effect is not only a relentless attack, but it is capable of teleporting the target to any location DARKSEID chooses and recall them later or erase the target from the universe and similarly reform them. DARKSEID has pinpoint control over his Omega Beams, and his unerring aim allows it to travel in straight lines or bend, twist or curve around corners. It has been shown that the Omega Beams are ineffective against the bracelets of Wonder Woman, as they were created from the Olympian Aegis. He has claimed that no being had yet withstood the full force of the Omega Beam.
Telepathy: DARKSEID can easily read minds of others anywhere in entire Universe. In this ability, he can also attack or invade someone's mind with images.

Avatar Creation: A simple thought allows DARKSEID to create liable avatars if/when the need arises.
Psionic Possession: psychic abilities to possess an individual and negate any superhuman abilities they may have.

Message to the CBM community:To those who are making requests, check first [here] because I might have done an article on the character already. If I have not please be patient, I will get on it as soon as possible (but consider the fact that I spend hours writing one of these articles). Try to limit your request to characters that already have been adapted to live media, so that the feature will at least be relevant to the site – Comic Book Movie(though I include TV characters). Characters in Manga or Anime’, I am not particularly familiar of, I am not discounting these characters but it will probably take some time before I write a feature on them because I have to read up on these characters. Thank you for reading these articles! If there are errors on the feature article above, blame it on my age, humanity and ignorance. Just be sure to check the comment section for the corrections, any error I made will surely be pointed out and corrected by much bigger geeks (because there will always be a bigger geek out there). -This has been PollMaster inviting you to the geekside. MABUHAY CBM and Godspeed!
