    as to whether all DS's low showings were really Desaad or not, though there is an implication there that at least sheds question on his previous defeats.

    That said, I don't think DC including that fight in a compilation book invalidates the retcon. Do you really think that much thought went into the compilation book, or that much tracking of continuity? If so, you're giving them WAY too much credit.


First, that this story was retconned at all is speculative. Second, whether DC is that unaware of its own continuity is also pure speculation. There are other Superman vs. Darkseid fights that did not make the book. Why would DC choose a Superman vs. Desaad fight in a storyline that actually takes up one third of its 230 pages over a real Superman vs. Darkseid fight that they left out? Third, I'd bet that if you point to this book and asked DC editorial whether this is the real Darkseid depicted in this book, I can almost guarantee you that they'd say yes.
