Another Puny God? Justice League May Have Found Their Big Bad

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | December 3, 2012 | Comments ()


I will admit here and now that I am not overly familiar with Darkseid, as I have a huge dislike of Superman and prefer my Batman on his own. However, I have concerns that it may be a misstep to give the Justice League an immortal adversary. There is no way to avoid comparisons to The Avengers, both because of its success and because Marvel and DC are competitors, but why invite more with your villain god? Another concern is that Darkseid will be pure CGI or motion capture or whatnot. Although that can be done well, have you seen Green Lantern? I'm not sold on DC being able to pull him off without looking like shit. I'd like to be more optimistic, but I've been burned by you before, DC.

Here's what Darkseid looked like on "Smallville":

Damn it.
