I kind of like the concept that defeating Darkseid is pointless, since ultimately, he'll defeat himself. It's an interesting way of looking at things - Darkseid may be the ultimate villain, the embodiment of evil, etc., but he's somewhat of a tragic character for all that - because he's SO wrapped up in his dreams of conquest and rule that once he's achieved them - what then? Does he have a purpose beyond being a bad guy? What happens to a man thoroughly devoted to a cause when the cause is achieved - especially when the cause is an avowedly evil and rapacious one that can bring him no true peace or contentment? What will you do then, eh, Darkseid? Who do you conquer when there is nothing left to conquer? "Alexander wept", remember?
