I started this but it ends with YOU.
If I were Darkseid I would do things differently:
1. Forget the ant-life equation. Would that not make life boring if everyone did as I said like robots? No free will? Not my cup of tea...no thanks.
2. I would change things on Apocalypse so people stop calling it a hell hole. If anyone decides to revolt or dissent my policies I will just banish them to Earth---Gotham city to be exact. Once Joker or any of the Gotham rogues get their hands on them they will wish they were back on Apocalypse.
3. I would not bother Supes anymore. My face is already cracked enough, I don't need any more.
4. I would marry one of the female furies, since granny goodness is not attractive at all. Maybe Lashina, she seems like the most level headed one. I don't think any other women would want me.
5. I would still maintain a military force for defense, just in case any of my numerous enemies thought the time was right to attack since I wasn't being a jerk anymore.
6. My omega beams are awesome, if they can time travel like I have been led to believe, I would do that for fun. Maybe I would be like Doctor Who, just far more intimidating due to how I look.
7. I would ditch the blue diapers that I wear for something more fashionable. I might even don a wig, for laughs if nothing else.
