Special Moves

Darkseid is a powerful brute. The lord of Apokolips may be slow, but makes up for it with brute force. Players are given control of his deadly Omega Beams, which can tear into an opponent from any distance. When up close, his melee attacks quickly peel away the enemy’s health bar.

Supermove – Boss Darkseid (R2+L2/RT+LT)

Darkseid unleashes his Omega Beams with players controlling their direction. This move is blockable. If the beams hit the opponent, they are lifted into space with the beams forcing them to hit multiple satellites and space debris. The opponent will then hit Darkseid’s enlarged palm before being crushed, pulled through a boom tube, and thrown aside by Darkseid.
