I'm Darkseid tbh
Desak is, essentially, the prototype of Gorr- a man who had his whole life ruled and destroyed by rogue gods, and is given the power to destroy them all, as well as the belief that all gods were harmful to those who worship them and that everyone would be better off without them.
He's also really strong and stuff, perhaps maybe stronger than Gorr in some places (???) idk. He's pretty powerful and someone who's mega obscure, which is my favourite combo.
Some of Desak's feats are technically not canon as they take place in the timeline where Odin dies and Thor becomes King Thor, invades Earth, all that guff. I guess you can still count it as he's still the same character in terms of stats but whatever.

While infused with the Destroyer, he kills Loki in one shot. (Thor #79)
He's pretty strong, if only because of his direct counter to energy sources from gods, and he can basically beat up any of them with ease. He only lost the first time due to a axe that was enchanted, but not enhanced by magic, which was enough to get through the Gem's strength.
The second time, he was stuck inside a armour that disabled the powers of the Gem itself, and was taken out before he could destroy King Thor. He's a pretty deadly foe and one that should have more respect tbh
