    That's right folks. It's a villain fight.
    Will En Sabah Nur prevail?

    Or will this tyrant be more than a match for Apocalypse?

    well, Darkseid has the Omega lazer thing thats wipes people off the face of the universe, so i dont think Apocalipse can beat (or survibe) that.

    I've always thought of Thanos as the Marvel equivalent to DC's Darkseid... or maybe Thanos is just Mongul's counterpart?

    I'm not very well-versed on any of the four characters, so I could be wrong. All I know about Apocalypse is from X-Men: TAS and what I know about Darkseid and Mongul is limited to the few times they've cameoed in books I was reading :p My knowlegde of Thanos is pretty much non-existent.

    But what the heck, I'll go with Darkseid, seeing as he's like second only to Superman in the DC Universe. At least, that's how he's always portrayed IMO.

    It's a tough call. Darkseid isn't one to get his hands dirty that often, so to really see the scope of his power is rare. It's only kind of inferred, as opposed to Apocalypse whose been in his share of a battle or two.

    I'd have to go with Darkseid. From what little he does, he gets the job done in easily one-or-two moves. Plus he's the ruler of a planet, so he can tire down Apocalypse with Parademons and the likes.

    Plus, I can't really remember a time when he was really beaten down or anything. He just kind of asserts himself until politics with New Genesis get involved and he feels he's made his point.

    It'd be a hell of a fight, though.

    I would go with Darkseid simply because of his powerful Omega Beams...but Apocalypse can simply teleport and use his insane unlimited strength.

    I think "I" would win. "I" have the power of size and shape manipulation, genetic manipulation, teleportation, huge strength, alien technology, and so forth. ;)
    Sure Darkseid is strong, and has those eye beams, but I also have beams from my arms, and I am Super strong as well. I have 4 horseman of Apocalypse to do my bidding.

    Anyone who can take out almost the entire Justice League by himself is too much for Apocolypse. Darkside first round KO.

    "Super or otherwise, you're merely a man...and I am a god."

    -Darkseid, JLU "Destroyer"

    hmmm, a god vs. a mutant. 'Nuff said.

    Apocalypse thinks himself to be immortal for the most part. He has no known weaknesses. And Darkseid only thinks himself as God, but is in fact a mortal.

    If you want to get extreeeeemley technical, he is a "New God."

    If it were a fist-fight, I'd say Apocalypse. If they can use their resources, I'm going Darkseid. I'd believe that an entire planet bred to obey and die for it's ruler can at the very least overwhelm the Four Horsemen.

    Apocalypse has alien tech what can do just about anything. No one knows its full potential. Teleportation and time travel are only small parts of it. And if its fist to fist, Apocalypse takes the victory.

    but guys, Darkseid can wype you from existance, Existence!

    His main power, the Omega Effect (the lazer eye thing), is a form of energy that he fires from his eyes as either concussive force or beams of disintegration, capable of erasing most objects and organisms from existence as well as reform them. Darkseid has pinpoint control over his Omega Beams, and his unerring aim allows them to travel in straight lines, bend, twist, or curve around corners, and can pass through matter and energy.

    how can Apokalipse beat that!

    Yeah well if Wonder Woman deflected it with her bracelets, then Apocalypse can get around it too...

    Apocalypse can just grow Godzilla size and squash Darkseid. Apocalypse's blasts are hugely powerful and can defeat Darkseid.
    Here is a list of Abilities that Apocalypse has from Wiki
    • Self-manipulation
    • Immortality
    • Superhuman strength, speed, endurance and reflexes
    • Teleportation
    • Flight
    • Technopathy
    • Healing factor
    • Energy manipulation
    • Psionic powers
    • Genius level intelligence
    Apocalypse can create force fields, absorb energy. He is a telepath and telekinetic.

    How can you win against all this? Darkseid will loose no contest. Darkseid is a one trick pony with his eye beams. Too Bad Apocalypse is immortal, has a healing factor and can teleport or fly (or a combination of the two) out of the way.
