The Elite are the top warriors chosen by Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips. The Elite became Darkseid's most powerful band of warriors.[2]


Some of his elite include:

  • Bane of Apokolips
  • Brola - An elite shock trooper. He is described to have a "Hand of Stone."
  • Desaad - A sadistic torturer.
  • Devilance - A hunter who is charged for hunting anyone that Darkseid wants. He was seemingly killed by Lobo during the events of 52.
  • Doctor Bedlam - A pure energy being who inhabits a neverending series of artificial bodies.
  • Glorious Godfrey - A master manipulator, mostly adept at bending huge masses of people to his will.
  • Granny Goodness - The founder and supervisor of the Female Furies and keeper of the horrid orphanages in Apokolips.
  • Kalibak - Darkseid's eldest son who is a thuggish brute and the second-in-command of Apokolips.
  • Kanto - A master assassin and "Preening clotheshorse" as Darkseid once described him.
  • Lady Justeen - The second-in-command of Desaad.
  • Mantis - A bug-like warrior who is one of New Genesis' insect people that emigrated from New Genesis.
  • Mortalla - A servant of Darkseid who can induce sleep with one hand and death with another. She was once a mortal, but was heavily modified to serve Darkseid.
  • Steppenwolf - Darkseid's uncle who is the general in his armies. He once killed Izaya's beloved wife.
  • Titan - A massive green-skinned warrior.
  • Virman Vundabar - An expert strategist and sycophant who emulates the appearance and mannerisms of a Prussian officer.
