When 'The New 52' was first announced, the focus was on the heroes, their redesigns and the creators working on them. What we didn't see a lot of was a focus on the villains. Some, such as Deathstroke or members of Suicide Squad, were seen. We've been left wondering and waiting with each issue to see if any changes have been made to the classic villains.

One such villain has been Darkseid. While mentioned in Justice League #1, we never got an actual look at him until now.

According to DC's The Source, this image comes from JUSTICE LEAGUE #4, on sale December 21. And they say this isn't even the best shot of him in the issue. Mark your calendar.

Ehhh...not bad, but like most of the redesigns a little busy.

Not the worst redesign in the DCnU, but not the best either (whats with the shoulderpads?)

#4 Posted by pspin (894 posts) - - Show Bio

Well it might not be the best redesign ever, but it is better than before

#14 Posted by Jake Fury (19208 posts) - - Show Bio

Pretty swanky belt buckle too. Maybe I'll get one of those.

As great as his art tends to be, Jim Lee's character design has always been 90's as fudge.

#16 Posted by jordanbines (9 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, looks good.

#20 Posted by moywar700 (2775 posts) - - Show Bio

needs to look more evil

#21 Posted by Chibio (920 posts) - - Show Bio

Better then his old look!

#22 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (888 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not liking thia new design, it appears to be trying too hard to look intimidating. In comparison, the old one was very simple, almost Roman warrioresque, to me anyway, but it worked as a deceptive way of how powerful Darkseid really is. This one is just trying too hard.

Can he turn his head in that helmet?

A prudent hero would attack from behind.

I agree.
#26 Posted by MetropolisKid41 (515 posts) - - Show Bio

I like it, he definitely looks more "armored" which fits in with all the hero redesigns as well, can't wait!

#27 Posted by perry_411 (424 posts) - - Show Bio

He should have an A on his belt, so he looks EXACTLY like Apocalypse

#28 Posted by laabitres (471 posts) - - Show Bio

he looks so badass n haters gon hate

#29 Posted by tensor (5106 posts) - - Show Bio

i like it ,an what is he doing charging up his hand for a blast???????????????

#30 Posted by Iron Apollo (2199 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow apocalypse in the DCnU! I know, duh! But weren't thanos and apocalypse supposed to be copies of darkseid. Apparently darkseid decided to steal apocalypses costume how unoriginal. Although I do like it better!?

#31 Posted by Billy Batson (58319 posts) - - Show Bio

not bad.

#32 Posted by Killemall (18607 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks good to me :)

#33 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (35052 posts) - - Show Bio

He looks like Terrax

#34 Posted by cagedleo730 (244 posts) - - Show Bio

Anti-Life justifies my hate (but not of this pic). He looks fine to me. The shoulderpad are a bit much. He still has the thigh high boots but it's integrated with the pants. Mini-skirts are so 70's. As for turning his head, the omega beams will take out anyone trying to sneak up on him.

#35 Posted by 218Comics (191 posts) - - Show Bio

Well detailed, maybe a little busy, but overall amazing. It really stands out and shows off his stature.

#36 Posted by CODYSF (2053 posts) - - Show Bio

Look great the only problem I got is I want the dam comic now.

Well, it could've been so much worse. That's how I feel about most things in the DCnU actually.

#38 Posted by Adnan (1021 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't really like it, but I was expecting a lot worse to be honest.

#39 Posted by wizkryton (2 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome! Can't wait to see some of the other shots...

#40 Posted by Benuben (225 posts) - - Show Bio

This is just sooo... 90s.

#41 Posted by GothamRed (2553 posts) - - Show Bio

he kind looks like he's wearing the blue beetle armor

#42 Posted by Or35ti (1101 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he looks pretty good. Before the relaunch I always thought that his costume was a little plain but this is nice, I can't wait for the issues to come :)

#43 Edited by ChadwickDavis (444 posts) - - Show Bio

interesting design...in a good way. With this revamp I only have one question... What about the Female Furies?

#44 Posted by termiteone4ever (8001 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes this is working for me. This Darkseid looks like he might really Rip Supes a new you know what :) well the whole JLA and more a new you know what :)

#45 Posted by Blizaga101 (942 posts) - - Show Bio

yep im all for this redesign, hes such a key character and i found his old outfit "un-cool". Now im glad i can say the opposite.

Looks okay

#48 Posted by entropy_aegis (15443 posts) - - Show Bio

Looking good.

#49 Edited by weaponmaster (1401 posts) - - Show Bio

It's ok. I would like to have seen him in some cool looking full-body tech armor instead of the archaic looking, stress-fractured, pauldrons, belt, and chestpiece. His skin looks weird, too many furrows and cracks, and he looks to be taking a dump inside his costume. Beady eyes too. Ive seen much better iterations. D+ Edit: And the pink belt is a true mistake.

he looks cool
