Well, Darkseid is a skyfather.
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.
Quote:Then Superman must be above skyfather, eh?
He has his moments but no, he has no chance against Darkseid unless Darkseid is weakened.
Quote:And featuring in a TPB does not un-retcon the retcon done by the writer of the scene himself. John Byrne retconned it.
Quote: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.
Yes, it does. Superman had only fought Darkseid in Action Comics 586 and the screen shows it.
Also it was shown in Action Comics 643 as well that Desaad is impersonating Darkseid.
