He is one of the New Gods. Darkseid first appeared, along with the other members of the New Gods, after a battle with evil in which the Old Gods died. Not only did the battle cost the Old Gods their lives, but their home planet was destroyed as well.

The Old Gods were immortal beings who relied on the prayers of mortals to remain in power but cared nothing about them. Soon the rebellious Uxas began putting lies and corruption in the minds of these Gods which sparked a war between them. As the gods began to die, Uxas began stealing the Gods' power for himself.

Eventually, The father of Darkseid was Yuga Khan when came to strike down both him and his brother Izaya for their insolence against the Old Gods, he used the Anti-Life to revive the Olds Gods Uxas murdered but was ultimately slain by his own son who took the fallen Gods' power to become the New God Darkseid.
Izaya, too, received power from the Old Gods and confronted him, claiming they were New Gods who should unite to bring forth a new age, but Darkseid only felt disdain and destroyed their world, with only him and Izaya remaining.

As eons passed, Darkseid created the hell pit of Apokolips and has remained as its sole ruler, with the only force capable of opposing him being his brother Highfather and his forces of New Genesis. At some point, he captured an aspect of Death in the form of the Black Racer to become his greatest weapon, but he couldn't command it unless it was anchored to a sentient host.
