Latino Review, earlier today, made a somewhat bold claim:

“We know who the bad guy is in Justice League.”

They went as far to name him:

Darkseid

 darkseid

In what can only be described as a ‘two fingers up’ to their rivals Marvel, who teased Thanos – a similarly powered being – at the end of The Avengers last summer.

Darkseid was created by Jack Kirby in the 70s – modelled on none other than Hitler, see jackboots, megalomania and warmongering, fascist style leadership and the indoctrination of children for evidence of which.

His appearances in the ‘new 52’ have been limited so far to the early issues of Justice League – expect him to become more prevalent in the run up to the summer of 2015, when the movie hits the big screen.
