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


Here are scans showing Superman "having no chance" against omega beams. Oh wait, he's taking them over and over and over again with Darkseid's stated intent to kill Superman with them, and Superman still standing after all of that:

    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.


Again, Desaad masquerading as Darkseid in #643 does not at all mean he was doing the same in #586.

    Marvel featured a TPB as Thor vs Thanos as well.

    I guess Thor fought Thanos there.


I'm open to the interpretation that Marvel considers that the real Thanos in the story. It's certainly open to debate. It's harder to deny it was a clone because Starlin retconned it pretty explicitly unlike the much more vague retcon you're claiming about Action Comics #586. However, Thor was powered up in beating whatever version of Thanos this is, so it's not directly comparable to Superman beating Darkseid under Superman's own power.
