    Quote:
    I was just curious, because during the Supergirl arc in the old Jeph Loeb Superman/Batman series , Darkseid shows up at the Kent's house to attack Superman. So, I gather that this means that he knew that Clark was Superman. At the very least, he knows where he lives. Did he ever attack him at his house again after that? To my knowledge he has not, but if he does know who he really is or where he lives, do the math.


Way back during Bryne's run, Darksied summons Superman and nabs Clark Kent instead. Later in the same issue, Darkseid comments that Superman's human disguise did not work on him and knew immediately who he was. So, yes...Darksied does know Clark Kent is Superman. And as far as I know, has never visited the Kent farm outside of the instance you mentioned.

    Was his knowing his identity ever brought up again


Not to my knowledge.

As for who else knows, well, Lana Lang knows, Strange Visitor knew before she died...





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
