          Well, Darkseid is a skyfather.
        Then Superman must be above skyfather, eh?
      He has his moments but no, he has no chance against Darkseid unless Darkseid is weakened.

    Darkseid starts off all three fights I've posted here fresh as a daisy and ended up losing to Superman. Superman bludgeons Darkseid all over the place in some of these fights. The comics themselves totally bely your statement that Superman "has no chance" against Darkseid. The one shot, Superman vs. Darkseid: Apokolips Now!, is the ultimate statement on the matter. It's titled Superman vs. Darkseid. They agree to a fight. It's a completely fair fight. Superman wins with plain clarity. No excuses. Except in your mind.

Except no, Superman had no chance against omega beams and had to run away and hit Darkseid with it.

If Superman could beat Darkseid on his own, he wouldn't do something like 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.
      Yes, it does. Superman had only fought Darkseid in Action Comics 586 and the screen shows it.

Yes, it does. There was only one instance of Byrne doing it for Superman and Darkseid and the writers made it clear that Desaad was posing as Darkseid in action comics 643 as well.

Marvel featured a TPB as Thor vs Thanos as well.


I guess Thor fought Thanos there.

Repeating yourself wouldn't change that you don't have anything here.

    The screen shows Superman and Darkseid and that's all we know about it. Nothing about the image directly references the Action Comics story. Can you identify every single one of those images?

I can, but what's the point?


      Also it was shown in Action Comics 643 as well that Desaad is impersonating Darkseid.

    Which has absolutely nothing to do with whether Desaad impersonated Darkseid in Action Comics #586. Why do you try to mislead so much?

Because it was another scene where Desaad did it.

A TPB featuring Desaad as Darkseid doesn't mean the retcon was unretconned.
