IN THE MULTIVERSITY MAP, THERE IS ONLY ONE DARKSEID

From a thread on Quora, there is an explanation about the Multiversity map:

Darkseid is a Multiversal being.

In DC Comics the Multiverse is made up of spheres.

The center of the Multiverse is the Rock of Eternity (nexus of all magic in the Multiverse) and the House of Heroes.

Then we got the Bleed. The Bleed is split between two layers. Upper and lower.

In the Upper layer you got the 52 Main Universes.

In the Lower layer you got a near infinite number of universes. Each universe exploring all the timelines that could were, could be, and still can be. So a really unimaginable number of universes.

The Barrier that splits all those Universes from the Sphere of the Gods (where Darkseid lives) is the Speed Force. The Sphere of the Gods envelopes all those universes I mentioned before.

And for those gods a universe can be as big as a sphere you can hold in your hand, or a bubble you can pop.

Above that Sphere theres the Monitor Sphere, home of the Prime Monitor that is the one that decides which universe is risen to the upper layer of the Bleed, when a main universe is destroyed.

In ‘New Gods’ (1997) #15, Darkseid and Highfather are trapped on the Source Wall. In order to communicate with Vykin the Black, Darkseid sends an avatar of himself. Each avatar possesses a fraction of Darkseid’s nigh-infinite power.

SPHERE OF THE GODS

Because Darkseid lives in the Sphere of the Gods, beyond the DC multiverse, there is only one true form Darkseid.

Though since Final Crisis, there have been multiple origins of Darkseid when the multiverse was reborn, the other versions of Darkseid that have entered the DC multiverse, are merely avatars. In “What is Darkseid’s True Form?”, Fiction Horizon goes over the concept of avatars.

In The Multiversity Guidebook, the Highfather, also a New God and Darkseid’s brother, states that each reality – past, present and future – has its own version (avatar) of Darkseid. This means that Darkseid is actually an omnipresent, non-corporeal being fragmented so that he can be present in every possible reality.

As far as we know, only actual multiversal deities (The Presence in DC Comics and The One Above All in Marvel) and Dr. Manhattan have these abilities, which would put Darkseid – his true form, that is – very high on the list of the most powerful beings in the history of comic books.

DOOMSDAY AND SUPERMAN HAVE DEFEATED AVATARS OF DARKSEID

In ‘Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey’ (1994) #1, Cyborg Superman guides Doomsday to Apokolips who arrives by cargo ship.

Programmed by Cyborg Superman, Doomsday destroys Apokolips’ army. Eventually, Darkseid must take direct action and intervene.

During the battle, Doomsday delivers a painful beatdown on Apokolips’ monarch.

Though there is debate that the Darkseid version Doomsday defeated was an avatar, writer Dan Jurgens seemed to confirm otherwise.

In the “Supergirl from Krypton” storyline, it is hinted that the Darkseid that Superman imprisoned on the Source Wall at the end of the battle was an avatar.

What the storyline shows is that true form Darkseid is a concept of pure Evil, the God of Evil, that threatens to destroy the DC multiverse. So what is true form Darkseid? True form Darkseid is the Anti-Life Equation erasing free will from the DC multiverse.

    1. Infinite frontier Darkseid wasn’t Trueform Darkseid he was every Avatar combined into one with base Darkseid, the Darkseid in finale crisis was Darkseids ghost after warring in heaven as stated in Grant Morrison’s Mr miracle in seven soldiers of victory not a omnipresent being. The whole plot of final crisis was Darkseid obtaining the Antilife equation and infecting the multiverse with it to infect all live in the multiverse with his essence to become omnipresent which is what Jack Kirby made the Antilife equation the main focus of Darkseid.

      1. Hey Ross! Welcome to Database Comics! I really appreciate your comment. While I agree with you, in the Infinite Frontier scan, Darkseid clearly speaks of being an amalgam from “lesser forms” and becoming his “true form.” And he does so while killing the Quintessence. Which shows he clearly has the power to destroy the DC multiverse. And he killed even Spectre.
