    And he was going to win against Thanos according to Peter David who wrote the scene.


Originally, yes. But that's not what happened. They fought to a stalemate during the entire event.

      We didn’t do Thanos vs. Darkseid the way I wanted. My notion was to have Thanos and Darkseid confront each other, simply say, “So,” to each other, and stand there, staring. This would start toward the beginning of issue #1. Every so often we’d cut back to them, still standing, still staring. And toward the end of issue #4, without a word, Thanos would fall over. End of battle. My notion was that they were battling on a plane of reality/existence that we couldn’t even begin to conceive.

    Doesn't lends credence to what you are saying.


Actually, it's the other way around. ;\) What David conceived didn't happen in the comic. What a write conceives of when the event happened differently in the comic is not evidence that supports your case. As always, your grasping at straws.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
