Doomsday Vs Darkseid, Superman is not a very common fictional character, but Doomsday (or Darkseid) seem to be able to defeat Clark Kent in a fair fight. Both of these characters are very different in terms of their abilities and powers. Who would prevail in a fight between Darkseid and Doomsday?
New Earth Doomsday was so strong that he was able defeat Darkseid when Apokolips was attacked by the monster. Prime Earth Darkseid, however, is on a higher level. His overall abilities and powers are so cosmic that they surpass Doomsday.
We are focusing on Prime Earth Doomsday, and not Darkseid. These versions are more recent than their New Earth counterparts. There aren’t many differences between Prime Earth Doomsday and New Earth, but Prime Earth Darkseid simply is leagues ahead. Let’s now look at the battle in more detail.
No matter which Doomsday version we’re looking at, its durability is amazing. Both versions of Doomsday can withstand powerful attacks by equally powerful adversaries. Doomsday in the New Earth timeline was able to neutralize Darkseid’s Omega Beams. These beams are powerful enough for complete destruction of planets and harm to Kryptonians. Doomsday can also come back from death to become immune to the things that killed him.
Darkseid is a New God who has a physiology far superior to that of almost all other DC Universe beings. He can take any hit from Superman and is extremely durable. He was actually able to survive the Justice League’s full might without ever dying. His durability is simply amazing when compared with other characters. Darkseid can also withstand attacks that would have killed or knocked out other creatures.
While we may be impressed at Darkseid’s endurance, the truth is that Doomsday has the ability to come back from any death. This is a remarkable display of endurance from any character, as he is practically immortal.
Doomsday Mark 1 point
Doomsday is of Kryptonian descent, which means that he is extremely strong. Because he lacks a lot power, Doomsday is able to brutalize his opponents with his brute strength. Doomsday’s strength was so great that he was capable of defeating Darkseid in their fight on the New Earth timeline. His strength is unlimited and greater than that of Superman. At one point, he was capable of defeating the entire Justice League by himself.
The Prime Earth and New Earth versions of Darkseid have incredible strength. This New God has the power to outshine a Kryptonian who is fully exposed to the sun. Darkseid is able to defeat Superman-like characters. He was able to defeat Superman in many instances and get the best from him. Darkseid was strong, but his strength wasn’t his greatest a**et. He was not a brute.
Doomsday is the epitome destruction carnage. This mindless beast is almost unstoppable once it starts to rampage. Doomsday is stronger than Darkseid, even though their distance isn’t large.

Powers and Abilities
Many people believe that Doomsday is a brute and pure beast of strength, but they don’t realize that he has a few other powers. Apart from being able to make himself immune to any past deaths, Doomsday can also siphon energy from other life forms around him. He has a form of toxikinesis that allows him to release toxins that can kill anyone around him. Even if the toxins didn’t kill any creatures around him they could make them mindless murderers with Doomsday-like tendencies.
Darkseid is a god to all intents and purposes. He has amazing powers that allow him to be very versatile in every type of battle. The Omega Effect allows Darkseid to manipulate cosmic energy in a tremendous way. He often uses this energy to create his Omega Beam, a beam that is so powerful it can obliterate nearly anything exactly and immediately. Darkseid has many other abilities such as power absorption, energy blasts and darkness manipulation.
Darkseid’s status as a god gives him more power and abilities than Doomsday who is more of a brawler, with some powers that make him dangerous. Darkseid is the right choice.

Doomsday is best described by the word “mindless”, which is a result of his being a mindless, wired monster designed to murder. As a creature that is capable of causing destruction and carnage, he was designed to destroy and kill everything. He doesn’t possess any intelligence whatsoever, Martian Manhunter being able to read his mind, and conclude that it doesn’t think about death and destruction.
Darkseid’s genius intellect is one of his greatest a**ets. Darkseid is a lot like Batman in that his intelligence is not only scientific, but also tactical and strategic. He can think several steps ahead of his enemies. Darkseid is skilled in deception and manipulation. He has proven time and again that he can win a war without actually fighting. Darkseid is the only DC character that has been able outsmart him.
This contest is basically null because Doomsday lacks intelligence and Darkseid has genius-level intellect. Darkseid is the smartest person in DC Universe.
Darkseid has one more point
Doomsday’s strength and flexibility are two of his strengths. Although he doesn’t know much about combat, he can instinctively be a brawler who can brutalize his opponents with sheer strength and murderous intent. Doomsday, despite not being the most skilled hand-to-hand fighter, was still able match or surpass Superman in a fight by simply brawling with him.
Darkseid, due to his intelligence and status of a New God is a skilled fighter who knows a lot about hand-tohand combat. Because he prefers to use his Omega Beams against his enemies, he rarely resorts hand-to-hand combat. Darkseid is skilled enough to defeat Wonder Woman and Superman when he fights. He is more than a brawler who uses his superior strength to his advantage.
Although Doomsday is a strong and instinctive brawler who can brutalize anyone, he does not have Darkseid’s abilities. Doomsday may have the strength advantage but Darkseid’s skills in hand-to–hand combat can make up for it.

Darkseid vs. Doomsday: Who would win in a fight?
While Darkseid might seem like a win for Doomsday, it is not the truth of the matter. We are discussing their Prime Earth versions. Darkseid, on the other hand, is completely different in terms of his abilities and powers in this continuity. Doomsday’s New Earth version was powerful enough to defeat Darkseid on Apokolips. It was not nerfed. Darkseid, however, has grown stronger and is now able to eliminate powerful cosmic entities on his own because of how powerful he truly is.
