"No protectors here. No Lanterns, no Kryptonian. This world will fall like all the others"

Steppenwolf is a New God of Apokolips and the nephew of Darkseid. He leads the Apokoliptian Military in his uncle's honor.


Early LifeEdit

Steppenwolf was born millions of years ago, in 28,000 BC on the distant planet Apokolips as a New God, alongside his uncle Darkseid who is the ruler of the planet. Over the years, Steppenwolf managed to master his powers, abilities and skills, and was chosen by his uncle to be the supreme military leader of the Apokoliptian Military.

Communion from Earth Edit

In 2015, Alexander Luthor, Jr. activated the Scout Ship that was crashed in Metropolis, left behind in the rubble from the Battle of Metropolis using General Zod's Command Key. Once he overrides Zod's Command, he begins learning the knowledge of the universe from the ship, creating Doomsday from Zod's corpse and sending a message out to the stars. Steppenwolf makes contact with Luthor, joining in an alliance to seek out 3 missing Mother Box's that were hidden on Earth thousands of years ago. Luthor explains that conquering Earth should be easier with Superman set to be killed by Doomsday. Before they could finish their communion, Metropolis S.W.A.T. teams arrived to arrest Luthor for his crimes and the transmission ended.

Invasion to Earth Edit

To be added.


Steppenwolf is appearing as a very tall, muscular, and a bit large individual wearing a black suit of armor, and a horned helmet on his head. He appears to be having an alien humanoid look unlike the other Parademons.

Personality Edit

Steppenwolf had become old and tired after millennia of invading and taking over other worlds. He seeks to be free of Apokolips' ruler, Darkseid, but Steppenwolf is neither foolish, nor powerful enough to disobey his will or challenge him.[1]

He continues to serve Darkseid as his hand and continues to invade other worlds for him, with Darkseid commanding him to invade Earth to retrieve his Mother Boxes. Despite this, Steppenwolf is an extremely powerful individual, possessing an incredibly powerful strength surpassing that of Wonder Woman's but not of Superman's.

In addition, Steppenwolf is an extremely ruthless, destructive, devious, sinister, violent, dark, emotionless, remorseless and cold individual from the most cruel kind. Except for that, Steppenwolf is a tyrant just like his own uncle; he controls and commands over the Parademons with a powerful iron hand.
