"He has appeared in the later seasons of The Super Friends animated television series, perhaps to fulfill the producers' request for a villain similar to Star Wars' Darth Vader. He often would combine whatever villainous agenda of the episode with the scheme of forcing Wonder Woman to marry him. He was voiced by Frank Welker. Jack Kirby said that the network executives tried to go behind his back and call the character "Darkside" for the Super Powers TV show, but Mr. Kirby was adamant about the name staying the same."
From Wikipedia. In reverence for Jack Kirby, I propose we continue calling Darkseid Darkseid.
I just realized a bothersome trend, when the writer disagreed with DC on retconing Lex Luthor's origin story to match with Smallville, they apparently gave him the choice between that or not retconning his creation story at all.
