Eh, what? He said his end goal is too great to risk.
Quote:Now that Darkseid is back to his full power, when he faces the JLA in that same issue, what does he do? He finds it too risky to fight them, turns tail, and runs. This goes back to what I was saying before about how the JLA matched Darkseid in their battle in Justice League #6. If Darkseid was sure he'd win, he wouldn't run for it. This also goes to my point that DC Zeus is less powerful than Marvel Zeus. Darkseid now has the power of Zeus but fighting the Justice League with that power is still an outcome in doubt.
Exactly. It's not a risk if he's sure to win, which he isn't, hence, it's a risk.
Quote:That's quintessential Kirby Darkseid who used combat as a last resort. The guy did not even fight Forever People due to the same reasons.
Except that Darkseid was all ready to fight Wonder Woman until the Justice League showed up and then he hightailed it and ran.
Quote:And how does it shows that DC Zeus is less powerful than Marvel Zeus? A weakened Thor and She Hulk have restrained a warrior madness Zeus before.
Funny, how you ignore the context. This is a repeated tactic of yours in which you pull a little moment out of context to say it means something that the larger context completely dismantles. In the heat of battle, Zeus had just beat up Hercules without even looking at who was attacking him. The Avengers were trying to talk sense to Zeus. Thor states, "Nay, Zeus, tis you who have erred," and Zeus stops to understand what's happening. Before Hercules intervened, Zeus had knocked out all the Avengers. Nothing is preventing Zeus from doing that again.
And this was a fight in which Zeus was repeatedly defeating Avengers only to let them get up so he could beat them up some more. In other words, he was holding back.
Quote:Not to mention feared Hulk and was about to flee from Olympus unless Hercules saves his behind.
Your own scans show Hebe saying to Zeus, "Shall I give the order to evacuate the city?" and Zeus says, "Never, Hebe!" Mislead much? Nevermind that when Zeus did fight Hulk, he completely demolished Hulk without using any of his real versatility.
