    Change the Round Time to 30 Seconds. Rounds to win to 1 round.

    Use Cheap moves and spaming is the key.

    I used Darkseid and did his Omega Beam over and over again (Back,Back, X). This stops anyone doing jump moves because the beam hits them and stops them from connecting. Mix in Darkseids jump stomp move and you shouldn't have an issue (Down, Down, B).

    Save you rage mode for when you are in trouble.

    Superman is also a good character to use.

    EDIT: Note please check the pad layout. This is for the default layout so it could be different if you changed it in the options.

    Kez001Finally got this after a few tries by using Darkseid against DC only, though on previous attempts with a mixed roster, Captain Marvel had been a huge problem. Spamming the back, back, x combo works pretty well until they get close and then it's a bit harder to pull it off before they launch you into a combo, but the X, X combo as suggested above helps get them out of your face.

    Солнце vLBest method ever, just've got the achievement at the first try, darkseid ( left left x) and using rage as a shield in case of danger, no need to make any other moves.

    R06U3after numerous attempts using Darkseid, I got it on my first attempt using Superman spamming Heat Vision (cn_left,cn_left,cn_X).

    Superman's Heat Vision seems noticeably faster than Darkseid's Omega Beam, so even though it does less damage, it seemed to be more effective at forcing the AI to keep its distance while the 30 second timer counted down. Choosing to only fight against DC characters seemed to help as well.

    Much like the guide above, I also recommend using Darkseid's Omega Beam (Bk,Bk,X).

    For most people out of all the battles, this is the one that they unfortunally lose to, but their still is a tactic even though you spam a move. When he counter attacks you, do not stress as when you get up, immediantly do the Omega Beam as the beam connects unlike Kanos which goes only half-way across the screen.

    Once the ending for Darkseid comes up, the achievement should unlock.

    Easiest way possible:
    Go to game play options set to Very Hard, 1 Round, 30 Second Rounds.
    Character: DARKSEID - Just spam XX the whole entire time, simple. I actually got a flawless on half the fights. It took me two tries to get it, GOOD LUCK!!! (:

    P.S. You have to beat DC Universe Story mode to unlock DARKSEID, then on character select press RB(Right Bumper) to choose him as a character.

    ThaDevilzHandThis surprisingly works very well. Had a few times where I'd throw in his beam or ground pound attack because the AI may have knocked me away from them, but for the most part just spamming that two hit combo gets the job done. clap
