Darkseid working at McDonald’s was better writing.

I don't know how to feel about this. On one hand, Darkseid is the embodiment of evil. On the other hand...okay-but-why?

@mister_surreal: Darkseid doesn't seem like he would care about women at all. Maybe if he was only doing this to Granny as a manipulation tactic and didn't actually have any real urges that would be an okay explanation but it would still be bad writing.

@awshucks: I hope that is the case. Darkseid probably doesn’t even feel urges. But the writing is still terrible, no wonder why so many of the Rebirth books have been terrible.

I could easily see Lex Luthor doing something like this but for Darkseid it seems very strange.

This essentially. I do not mind writers incorporating current hot topic issues into their stories, but this felt forced and was just lazy writing. It makes Darkside seem too human, which goes against him being the embodiment of evil and a grand god. But I guess sexual predator allegory was just too good to pass on.

That looks like incredibly bad fan fiction, when did DS turn into freaking Harvey Weinstein?

There's literally no problem with this, people are making a big deal out of nothing, Darkseid got horny, Darkseid used his position of power to fuck, how is this different from everyday life, forgetting the fact that Darkseid is completely evil and sadistic

Honestly its not like its totally out of left field that a guy intent on universal domination/ending all life who has enslaved planets and populaces would be above rape but oh my god was the way the writer portrayed it cringey.

I think it is less that rape is out of character for Darkseid as it is this particular brand of it. Darkseid has no reason to promise her a promotion if she sleeps with him. If Darkseid was horny he'd take what he wanted with threats of death, not promises of power.

I guess it is the deception that feels weird. Not that Darkseid is above lying but that lying isn't something Darkseid should need to do to get what he's after.

maybe darkseid likes the granny booty :P

Darkseid has the maturity of an old man. Granny Goodness was younger in her 50s here, and she was also a GILF, so that's like perfect age for Darkseid. The furies are children to those two.

It's sometimes easy to forget that Darkseid is an old man. A GILF will catch his eye unlike, say, Superman who is in his 30s

It's not that he's above rape, it's the issue of how it was handled. In character, Darkseid wouldn't just ask and promise stuff, he'd simply command, and "funniest" thing is, Granny would "gladly" obey. But like others have mentioned, making some "woke" metacommentary was more important than to actually write in character I guess and that's why it's ridiculed. And rightfully so. Also:

This is priceless lmao

Yeah they do. It's just not they're first choice, since early 20s is the undeniable physical peak. A 20-30 year old man wouldn't even blink an a 50 year old, but an old man 60+ years old would think a GILF is a godsend and would be all over that.

I dont like that Darkseid and co are acting like characters from Mad Men. Whatever, as far as I'm concern the only cannon Forthworld appearance is Kirby's, Simonson's, and Morrison's.

Darkseid is supposed to be the living embodiment of the very concept of evil...but him having physical/sexual needs that he wants to satisfy seems oddly...beneath a God of his stature. I was actually interested in the idea of a Female Furies book (any more Fourth World material is a plus, in my opinion) but this just seems to be a weird case of writing an OOC Darkseid in order to somehow make Granny sympathetic/more of a protagonist to the reader. Which seems counterproductive considering Granny has historically been portrayed as one of the most terrifying and wicked members of Darkseid's inner circle.....

It seems like an odd card to pull with a character who has helped space hitler on his conquest. And yeah, this sorta thing just seems beneath Darkseid. Just cus he's the embodiment evil doesn't mean we should expect him to also watch child porn.

If any character was going to get MeToo'd, I would have expected Lex, and it would have made more sense for a billionaire in the corporate world, not DC's equivalent to the Devil. Like what's the end goal here? Is Darkseid supposed to learn some sort of lesson?

@saintwildcard Maybe I can't judge because I haven't actually read the full issue. But yeah, just based off these few pages, it seems like an ill-advised attempt to humanize a character who has historically been unquestionably evil (I mean Granny). I'm really hoping this gets retconned in the near future.

Another thing I find inconsistent about this depiction of Darkseid is that generally he sees the act of physical intercourse as a means to secure more progeny who can serve his objectives. Uxas has certainly gotten busy with the ladies given that he has 4 children over the course of his history but he's never been the kind of guy to submit to a passionate lust like he does here. Further indication that this scene was solely to serve the writer's agenda for this series.
