  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Darkseid: I seem to recall telling Kalibak he was not to go to Earth.
      Desaad: I was just about to tell him, sire. He has disobeyed you. I know not where he comes by such foolish ideas.
      Darkseid: Oh?
      Desaad: He wishes to prove himself worthy to be your, uh...
      Darkseid: A technicality of his birth. As far as destiny and I are concerned, I have no son.

    • Superman: (to Jonathan) Don't move, I'm coming.
      Kalibak: (punches Superman) The only place you're going is to the grave!

    • Martha: Your editor wasn't angry with Clark, was he? He certainly sounded upset.
      Lois: Nah, the chief always sounds like that. It's part of his charm.

    • Kalibak: You see, Superman, life breeds death. Everything that lives must kill something to survive. And I am a survivor.

    • Superman: Stop, there's an innocent man!
      Kalibak: How naïve you are. On Apokolips we are taught - even as children - that no one is innocent.

  • Notes

    • This is the first appearance of Desaad in this series. He would later appear in the Justice League episode "Twilight (1)" but voiced by a different actor.
