Quote:I must’ve have angered you good which wasn’t my intention. Because I can’t help but feel you’re resorting to disingenuous tactics because this has a well known retcon. Are you not aware, or are you purposely trying to muddy things?
Quote:First, I'm not angry whatsoever. I wasn't even thinking of you when I made these posts. I was thinking of someone else on this board who thinks that Darkseid is a skyfather or better in power level (everyone else here will know who I mean). Don't think too much of yourself now.
Quote:Also, if this instance was retconned, a claim that is ambiguous at best, DC has un-retconned it. It's a featured story in DC's recently released collection, Superman vs. Darkseid. Obviously if this wasn't really Darkseid in this story, then it shouldn't have been in a collection called "Superman vs. Darkseid," even making up about one third of the full volume.
Well, Darkseid is a skyfather. And featuring in a TPB does not un-retcon the retcon done by the writer of the scene himself. John Byrne retconned it.
