You're not all about the canon because in trying to argue Darkseid and Thanos are equals, you all but said that Darkseid would be an equal IF ONLY those darn Marvel canon retcons wouldn't keep getting in the way!
Quote:It's the only way to have an agreed-upon set of interpretations, and even if comedy, bad writing, a joke, it stands. Deadpool breaks the 4th wall and I still consider it canon despite the intended joke.
Well, if you want to take a joke seriously, that is, not treat it as a joke, then the joke's on you.
the whole John Byrne She Hulk series was kind of silly....a lot of 70's stuff too...all canon.
But it WAS retconned. Thanos IIRC noted that the clone Thor beat with the Designate rivalled him in terms of power (at least establishing that that Thanos was at least a comparable threat), but it did raise enough doubt for most of the clones for most of his losses to that point that Thanos gets the benefit of the doubt IMO.
