He seems so badass and overpowering and holds him self above everything, but overall he's weak. You fight him on his terms, he goes down and he'll beg for mercy

And I'm just saying I wish he'd be gotten rid of basically

Have you read anything from Kirby's original New Gods at all?

No, he's really not weak. The guy's stronger than Superman, commands more loyalty than nearly anyone, and faced his own death head on. He never begged for mercy, and he literally IS above everything.

Just because about twenty years of crap writers relegated him to the status of someone Superman can punch into submission, doesn't mean he's not maybe the third greatest villain DC has given the right spin, behind Luthor and Joker.

I don't think he is. I think he should be someone Superman can punch into submission. In fact no matter how tough he is I think the biggest difficulty with defeating Darkseid is that he ends the battle when he's in trouble.

And did he face his own death head on when written by Kirby?
