Apokolips is one of the home planets of the New Gods. Under Darkseid's dominion, the forces of Apokolips are enemies of the gods of New Genesis, and the rest of the galaxy. The Light and Intergang have had many dealings with its people, mostly acquiring weapons.
Apokolips is the very antithesis of its sister planet New Genesis, a world of life and freedom. On Apokolips, the gods champion anti-life, slavery, and degradation. The surface is a barren wasteland, with fire pits across vast areas visible from space, even. The only notable structure is Darkseid's residence, which overlooks rivers of lava.
As the throne world of the Apokoliptian empire, Darkseid can oversee his dominion and conspire with his allies throughout the galaxy without ever leaving the planet. Apokoliptian weaponry, such as Father Box, is supplied frequently to the Light and their agents. Apokolips's attack force comprises of foot soldiers, known as Parademons, that overwhelm enemies, and gunships sporting Darkseid's face. Darkseid's more immediate minions―Desaad, G. Gordon Godfrey, and Kalibak―execute his bidding on different fronts, such as infiltrating targets and weapons dealing.
Vandal Savage arrived on Apokolips's surface via the use of a boom tube. He passed Desaad and G. Gordon Godfrey, and walked over towards the edge of a balcony to meet with a tall, ominus figure. They shook hands as Savage remarked that it was simply business as usual.
- Apokolips and New Genesis were spawned by the cataclysm that ended the era of the Old Gods. As such, both planets exist outside the DC Universe in a separate dimension known as the Fourth World.
