Actually, if a weak Darkseid defeated Zeus- then Superman should have an easier time defeating Zeus; since he has defeated the older version of Darkseid one on one- just do the Mathematical computation. Thus, Superman's power should be above most, if not all, Sky- Lords. This makes perfect sense when it comes to the Laws of BS Physics that has governed the DC Universe for the longest time. Maybe, Zeus should've call Batman before the match, and ask him to trip Darkseid down some stairs. This might have given Zeus the win for sure.
Zeus should've obliterated Darkseid and easily. I recall Thunderstrike couldn't do Jack against Heimdall who was given just a portion of the Odin Force. If the same thing is held true in the DC Universe- Darkseid wouldn't have been able to touch; nevermind siphoning his energies..
DC has always been a joke! Imagine if Thanos had done that to Odin? Lol
Or if WWH could’ve overcome a powered up cheating pissed off Zeus? In DC it doesn’t matter because ridiculousness reigns! Now we’ll see Supes sun dip and punk Darkseid lol.
