so is that the kind of porn Darkseid was looking for in Metropolis when he found that tape of Superman and Barda? Rape porn?


In all seriousness, that seems sort of...undignified for Darkseid. Like it'd be beneath him.

What rape? Isn't controlling the ALE basically universal rape?

He wanted power and control. Not really getting that booty

The whole scene prior was to get revenge for heggra killing suli. The only woman he actually truelly loved (mother of Kalibak). Heggra also made Darkseid marry tigra a woman he hated (mother of Orin) which he never forgave his mother for

Interesting to note he was planning on using his brand new Omega Beams for the first time to kill tigra. Tigra told him that she was with child so Darkseid let her live for this. He does have a twisted sense of honour

Never viewed him as a dude who would fuck people like that. And if he's not doing it to the men then there has to be some slight sense of sexualization there, because a dude would be humbed if he got fucked by Darkseid.

It just seems to much like a despicable human gangster, not an alien tyrant.

This feels wrong and forced.

Rape is usually more about power and control than the booty.

I'm not defending the story or anything, mostly because in the grand scheme I don't really care much about Darksied, but a dude who wants to mentally dominate the universe getting a couple rapes in along the way doesn't seem far-fetched to me.

Indeed but that’s not how the story portrayed it. Darkseid had a “hunger”. Wasn’t about power. Wasn’t about control. He was horny after they killed his mother for killing the woman he only truely loved. It’s misplaced and out of character

The rest of the characters in the story were acting like frat guys. Legit laughing at granny when she got the orphanage. Which actually was a thing of respect and power to get in past issues

Oh yeah neither do i. But it’s still a trash issue. Real social issue handled very poorly. Have you read the issue?

No. I kinda stopped carrying about The New Gods since DS became Superman's punching bag.

You disgust me

But really It’s so out of character. I kid you not. For example Darkseid made the woman have a bake off, evening gown and smile competition before they made it into the army. They legit sat on a panel and scored them out of 10. Yeeeeeeeah

Even the male soldiers were talking about the woman’s curves and legit acting like frat guys. Even made it seem like woman were far more tortured then the men. However in the orphanage it didn’t matter what gender you were. You got badly tortured. The recent mister miracle showed the torture scars granny gave to Scott free

I’ll try to post scans later. There’s one scene where a new god takes a female furry for special “tutoring” training but it’s just various panels of him grabbing her boobs and ass multiple times. Legit. Just straight up molests her

Again real social issue handled very poorly here

Darkseid forcing Granny Goodness to have sex, and then "promoting" her to run the nursery due to her being a female is a whole new layer of Darkseid I was not anticipating.

This. Morrison, Moore, Miller, Ennis... I’d trust these writers to get this type of thing right.

Darkseid has no problem wiping out billions, but something like this seems beneath him. Sure, rape is about exerting power, but I feel like Darkseid would view that type of display of power as pathetic.

I dont know...Earth 1 Wonder Woman got a little weird and fetishy at times. It like a Jezebel readers wet dream at times




Rape is always an questonble spice to put in there. Its like a really strong pepper.  Ok to put it in the stew...but just note the entire stew  would taste a bit peppery

kinda makes it really weird when the whole "every interpretation of the new gods is canon"  thing is brought in
