Not sure how two retcons is “time and time again”. The third retcon didn’t even involve a defeat IIRC. Neither of the two loses involve straight up head to head defeats and Starlin himself has written Thanos being defeated. Starlin’s retcons were about characterization. He didn’t want a nihilistic Thanos anymore.
Dan Slott wrote Squirrel Girl defeating Thanos and he also wrote the retcon. So that was not Starlin’s doing, but rather a writer poking fun at Starlin and retconning his own story.
And since Superman struggled more against Thor than he did Darkseid in Apokolips Now, we can agree tha Thor is above DC top tiers.
