      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.


Then Superman must be above skyfather, eh?

    And featuring in a TPB does not un-retcon the retcon done by the writer of the scene himself. John Byrne retconned it.

Again, that image does not at all specify a particular Superman encounter with Darkseid and so there's no reason to believe it had to be Action #586. And of course DC featuring the story in a volume called Superman vs. Darkseid, with the story taking up about a third of the book, indicates the company's stance on the story, that is, this is Darkseid who Superman is fighting.
