Darkseid is the main antagonist of Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Season Two, Part 2. His goal is to invade the Earth and conquer it.
He is voiced by Michael Leon-Wooley.
Uxas was born to Yuga Khan and Heggra and younger brother to Drax. After Yuga Khan was imprisoned in the Source Wall for his attempt to breach it and attain omnipotence, Heggra took over as ruler of their planet Apokolips. However, Uxas engineered his mother's assassination. He also connected to the Omega Realm instead of Drax, rightful ruler of Apokolips, was empowered, killed Drax, and took the godname of Darkseid. He received the power of the Omega Effect, a devastating laser beam projected from his eyes that can instantly vaporize almost any organic material. As Darkseid, he assumed control and instigated a war with the rival planet of New Genesis. After years of stalemate, a diplomatic exchange was arranged. Both side's rulers would exchange their sons. Darkseid's second son, Orion was given. Highfather, leader of New Genesis, exchanged his son.
An outsider would view his rule as a dictatorship operating on a virtual slave state but Darkseid maintains several roles to his subjects; master, god and executioner. Darkseid went about unchecked searching for the solution to the Anti-Life Equation. With it, he could control and dominate all of the free will in the universe. Darkseid could then eliminate chaos and recreate the universe in his own image, a system of order. Centuries later, Earth became the object of his attention. Earth was rumored to be the legendary Fifth World where the planet's inhabitants collectively held fragments of the Anti-Life Equation in their subconscious minds. Darkseid plans to piece together the Equation through each human being.
In the present era, Darkseid set his sights on the planet Earth, a world of heroes. He planned to transform Earth into a world of Fire Pits and make it his new Apokolips. Darkseid's son, Kalibak, led the invasion. In Washington D.C., a Boom Tube Generator was constructed to establish mass transportation between Earth and Apokolips. Once completed, Darkseid arrived in his flagship. Impressed by the mortal known as Batman, Darkseid agreed to fight him without superpowers. Darkseid found the opportunity exhilarating and beat Batman unconscious but before he could kill him, the Question reversed the signal in the Boom Tube Generator. Darkseid and all of his forces were teleported back to Apokolips.
