The last son of the planet Krypton protects his adoptive home of Earth as the greatest of the superheroes.
When adapting Darksied for this series the creative team was able to use elements of the Jack Kirby Mythos that worked on a more commercial aspect, reducing Darkseid's whole central being and mythos into something that's kind of easily palatable to the key audience. This version of the Anti-Life Equation is basically that Darkseid feeds on the despair of people, so that's why he wants Earth and that's why he wants to destroy Superman. He's going to come to Earth and take their greatest hero and reduce him to nothing. He's going to feed off the despair of the entire planet.
You dare to strike me?
Superman: That's for Dan Turpin!
Superman: The good man you murdered!
Darkseid: If I had known the death of one human would hurt you so, Kal-El, I would have killed more!
