      Sure. The thing is that when you're trying to measure Darkseid vs. Thanos, you have to take everything into account.

    Exactly! And this is what I do when I think on who would win. I like Darkseid a whole lot more than I do Thanos. And originally, I did say Darkseid wins this fight until someone corrected me with proof that Thanos wins. Then I did research on the two characters and compared their feats. And frankly, Thanos has more impressive feats than Darkseid does.


      Both characters have had showings all over the place, but certainly some showings are more memorable and prominent than others. Darkseid has both beaten and lost to Superman, DC's most prominent or second most prominent character. In two cases, Superman flat out beat Darkseid cleanly with Darkseid admitting he lost. Another time, Superman got a save from Wonder Woman's vambraces against Darkseid's omegas, but after that, Superman went on to beat Darkseid convincingly. Given all of these instances and that Doomsday also humiliated Darkseid, it's hard to see Darkseid as significantly more powerful than Superman.

    Until the New 52, Darkseid was only marginally more powerful than Superman in turns of raw power and strength. And he was like that for decades. One of many reasons why I rate Darkseid below Thanos.


      Thanos has also had good and bad showings. He's shown he can beat Adam Warlock easily, that he could probably take down Thor and Thing simultaneously (and this was before he got a notable power up upon his resurrection), that he could keep up with Odin for a time, and he's beaten the Annihilators. On the lower end, he struggled against Drax, Nova, and Peter Quill in the Cancerverse, he's lost to the Avengers and Guardiahttps://m.imgur.com/a/QDyPdns of the Galaxy combined, and while in a weakened state, Thanos lost to the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. Thanos has never lost to a Superman-level foe in a straight fight though and that should count for something.

    Couldn't agree more. Especially your last sentence.

I don’t know, dude. What feats and victories have you been seeing? I find they’re often exaggerated, like backhanding In-Betweener and drawing blood... without informing everyone of minor details like in-betweener was literally powerless within the vicinity of the prison Thanos freed him from. “Powerful enough to draw In-betweener’s blood” I’ve seen, but why let details get in way..

His durability? is that his flesh can melt inside Ego’s stomach? Surely that can’t be hotter than the sun or earth’s core which a handful of top tiers can withstand.


Do you seriously see a writer ever writing Superman’s flesh as capable of burning like this?
