I thought you had already lost all credibility before, but now you've really, really lost all credibility.

Darkseid isn't even in Action Comics #638:

In Adventures of Superman #495, they don't even fight. Darkseid surprises Superman with omegas and teleports him to Darkseid!

New Gods #10 doesn't have a real fight either. Superman is enraged seeing Darkseid. Darkseid fires omegas to immobilize Superman and before Superman can break free, Highfather tells Superman that Darkseid is to be their ally and Darkseid lets Superman go. That's not a fight! And it's certainly not a victory for Darkseid.

Darkseid and Superman don't even meet in The Legion #29. They do fight briefly in The Legion #30, but again, Darkseid does not win. It's just a quick back and forth.

Darkseid kind of gets the better of Superman in Man of Steel #116, but does not in any way get a clean win. The fight comes with the caveat that Superman has just finished a fight with Kalibak right before, allowing Darkseid to blindside Superman to start the fight. Darkseid never ko's Superman, just holds him down, until Superman breaks free and steals Darkseid's prized Aegis armor.

Superman Confidential is the only time Darkseid beats Superman and this is a young, inexperienced Superman.

So really, the win-loss is 3-1 in Superman's favor. I had never tabulated it before now, so thanks for that!
