Q: I’m going to fall for it: Why would Solaris make a much better movie villain than Darkseid? — @robotfrom1984

A: In case anyone out there missed it, I made an off-hand reference in last week's column to my feeling that Solaris the Tyrant Sun would be a better villain for a Justice League movie than Darkseid, and as is usually the case, readers picked up on the fact that I'm obviously fishing --- er, seeding future columns, I mean --- and decided to follow up. Honestly, though, it's not really that complicated.

It basically just comes down to the fact that Solaris is a giant evil bad guy from space that you can beat by punching.

When You Cry Out In Your Dreams, It Is Darkseid That You See

ds_featured

When Jack Kirby came to DC Comics, darkness followed after him. He arrived ready to build his own mythology, the interlocking Fourth World, a saga of gods locked in an eternal interplanetary war, with Earth caught in the middle.

And Kirby wasted no time introducing the villain of that saga, a gray-skinned god of evil named Darkseid. What Kirby didn't see coming was that he'd created such a great villain that he would grow larger than Kirby's saga and become perhaps the most important villain of the DC Universe.

Of course, there are enough great DC supervillains to fill Belle Reve Prison several times over; many more than we might ever meet at the movie theatre. So for ComicsAlliance's third fantasy superteam draft, following on from our fantasy X-Men teams and our fantasy LGBTQ teams, we've asked our contributors to fight it out to put together the best DC supervillain teams, drawing only from the main line DC comics continuities.

ICYMI: Darkseid Is A Baby Now And You Can Use Him As A God-Powered Lightning Gun

Justice League #50, DC Comics

Listen, the last week of comics was a little overwhelming, so you could be forgiven if you missed out on a few of the details that slipped through the cracks. I mean, we were all so busy talking about other things that we sort of missed the fact that Justice League #50 wasn't just a lead-in to DC's big Rebirth event, it was also the finale of Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok's ten-part "Darkseid War" storyline.

So in case you missed it, we thought you might want to know that Darkseid is a baby now. A baby that you can use as a God-power lightning-gun by saying a magic word backwards.
