Apokolips, the home world of Darkseid in the Fourth World

The so-called Fourth World is another dimension,[1] although some sources refer to it as a "closed galaxy."[2] The dominant alien species of the universe is the New Gods, which are natives of the planets New Genesis and Apokolips.


In this universe, there once was a planet called Urgrund, and it was ruled by a race now known as the Old Gods. Eventually the planet split into, and two planets formed into what is now known as New Genesis and Apokolips.

New Genesis

New Genesis is a world of peace and prosperity. The ruler of the planet is called the Highfather, who rules a kingdom of impressive beautiful paradise-like scenery.


Apokolips is ruled by Darkseid. It is a world of terror and misery. But even Darkseid's lowest and most mistreated servants; the Lowlies, are proud to serve him.
