Darkseid: Welcome to Apokolips, Mr. Mannheim. Bruno Mannheim: Who are you? Darkseid: Your new Lord and Master. You may call me... Darkseid.
Superman: What have you done to him? I asked you a question. Who are you? Answer me! (Darkseid uses the Omega Beams to bring Superman to the ground) Darkseid:That is who I am.
Desaad: You sacrificed your s--, ah, Kalibak? Darkseid: War casualty. Desaad: How many there will be before you destroy Superman and conquer the Earth? Darkseid: As many as it takes.
Bruno Mannheim: You promised you'd make me a king! Darkseid: And so you are: a king of fools!
Darkseid: You're a magnificent opponent, Superman. But even you must realize it's hopeless.
Darkseid: Still, if you won't be my knight, you will be my pawn.
Darkseid: People of Earth, I am Darkseid, lord of Apokolips. Here is your savior, down and broken. I have crushed him as easily as I have crushed all who dared to oppose me throughout the cosmos. I am power unlike any you have ever known: absolute, infinite, and unrelenting. You have no choice but to prepare as a long dark future as my subjects and my slaves.
Darkseid: I never settle. What I cannot have I destroy.
Superman: You used me. Darkseid: I told you once, Superman, if you would not be my knight, you would be my pawn. Superman: I see you're a man of your word. Darkseid: I am many things, Kal-El. You couldn't begin to imagine half of them, but for now I shall take the role of executioner.
Darkseid: Had I known one human's death would pained you so, I would have killed more. And kill more I shall. Carry that agony with you to oblivion, Superman.
Darkseid: I am many things, Kal-El, but here I am God.
Brainiac: You deceived me, Darkseid. Used me. Darkseid: It's what I do.
Darksied: I'm glad to see growing up with Highfather hasn't made you soft and weak. You make an old man proud. But I won't let you or anyone else stand in my way!
Darkseid: You really are a glutton for punishment. Time and again I've beaten you, humbled you. What makes you think today will be any different? Superman: Because this time I won't stop until you're just a greasy smear on my fist. Let's go.
Kanto: We had thought ourselves bereft forever. Darkseid: Only the slimmest of chances has allowed me to overcome my death at the hands of Superman. But let the universe howl in despair for I have returned! (The Apokoliptan armies cheer triumphantly) Bernadeth: What is your will, my lord? Darkseid: As ever, to search for the Anti-Life Equation, that I might bring order to this aimless universe. But first, Superman must suffer for killing me. His adopted world will die screaming. Only then will I seek the ultimate end. Kanto: Forgive me, lord, but to attack Earth would violate your pact with Highfather. New Genesis would doubtless retaliate. Darkseid:(smiles) Where do you think I'm going next?
Darkseid: I hope you appreciate, Kal-El, that everything that happens from this point is on your hand. The skies will rain fire, the oceans will boil, the streets will run red with the blood of billions. Only then, after your last pitiful hope is extinguished, will I end your life. Let's go.
Darkseid: I'm more powerful than I've ever been and the last time we met, you barely managed to hold your own. Superman: Funny – that's not how I remember it.
Darkseid: Super or otherwise, you're merely a man, and I am a god!
Darkseid: It's called the Agony Matrix – direct neural stimulation of pain receptors. All of them. Imagine the worst pain you've ever felt in your life, times a thousand. Now imagine that pain continuing forever. Oh that's right – you don't have to imagine.
Darkseid: Still alive. You impress me, Kryptonian. More... your valor has touched my heart. Oh yes, there is still some small part of me that knows mercy. I will end your pain with something special I've been saving for just this occasion (takes out a Kryptonite knife). I'm going to carve out your heart and put it on a pike in my throne room.
Darkseid:It's beautiful, isn't it? Lex Luthor: Yes...yes, it is.
