Nih-El is an artificially created Kryptonian and New God hybrid created by Darkseid for the sole purpose of being his most powerful weapon. Nih-El was created after one of Darkseid's many conquests, this one around Krypton as he saw some of the true capabilities of Kryptonians after testing there physiology of captured Kryptonians, specifically of one elder of the name El. Shortly after his destruction of Krypton, he decided to combine his DNA with that of Kryptonian to achieve a virtually unstoppable machine capable of killing all who oppose him. Naming him Nih-El after his bastardized family in response to never forget to destroy even those who are close to him. He was conceived of after combining Kryptonian DNA with that of his in a molecular mixing chamber. After his "birth" he was then nurtured and studied by Doctor Bedlam for many months until he was capable of fighting on Granny Goodness's "Orphanage". Killing most of anything that came into his path. After he became 16 years of age, he destroyed his first planet almost effortlessly in praise of father Darkseid, one of the only moments Darkseid has expressed of truly being proud of someone other then himself. He was then named Supreme General of Darkseid's Army joining the ranks of Darkseid's generals. He has had many battles with the likes of the Justice League during there confrontations with Darkseid and the New Gods including bouts with beings like Superman and even Doomsday on one occasion.


Nih-El is relatively tall, around 6'4" with bulging muscles. He is seen usually wearing a skin tight battle suit made from elastic Apokoliptian materiel in a similar design to that of Superman's. He is usually appeared with Dark brown and possibly black hair with some stubble of facial hair very now and then.


Nih-El is usually a person that keeps to himself when not approached,he is very calm yet has an angry attitude. His loyalty to Darkseid is seemingly endless, destroying entire civilizations in behest of his father.
