Armageddon was a great battle that was to take place on Earth that many believed would even bring about the end of the world.

The term originated in the Bible as a prophecy, and it was often used to describe any sort of possible world-ending disaster, such as an asteroid crashing into Earth, or the sun exploding, causing Earth to be destroyed. All such theories were merely conjecture.

Darkseid had made several attempts to bring Armageddon to Earth, by destroying it, and remaking it into his own image.

On one occasion in 1985, he sent thousands of his own Seeds of Doom to the planet, but the Super Powers Team gathered them all up before they sprouted and wrecked the entire world.[2]

In 1988, he sent forth the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to bring forth Armageddon. Thankfully they are stopped by Superman.[3]
