Darkseid Does Some Dumb Stuff

Sure, he's noble and regal and dangerous and deadly. But sometimes Darkseid does some dumb stuff. (Hence, the title of the post.)

Darkseid trips and falls flat on his face!

Yes, occasionally...Darkseid Does Some Dumb Stuff.

But dumbest of all: He wears shorts with riding boots.

There are some rules of fashion that even the gods themselves must obey!

It seems as though even Darkseid wants to get away from all the doom and gloom on Apokolips. He's just...misunderstood.
