Minions of Apokolips: Glorious Godfrey by Justin Zyduck
Of all the Fourth World villains, I find Glorious Godfrey the most fascinating. I mean, take a look at this page and all the wonderful richness it suggests. A salesman disguised as a televangelist, Godfrey isn't a total sham. He does believe in anti-life (or at least he tells Darkseid he does; I choose to believe that he's telling the truth), but only to a point. To him it's really just a marketing campaign for Darkseid. It's like if you were an adman for Apple, and you sincerely believed that Apple products are the computing solution for every man, woman, and child on Earth -- and then Darkseid comes in and is like, "You shortsighted fool, don't you realize? APPLE IS LIFE ITSELF!"
