Quote:Other than 586, in post crisis continuity, had Superman ever had any level of confrontation with DS either solo or with a group prior to the revelation that Desaad sometimes posed as DS. The dates and issue numbers bleed together for me but I find it hard to believe there was no other confrontation prior to that issue.
Action Comics 638. Darkseid easily defeated Superman.
Quote:That said, we also know that prior to DOS Darkseid did meet Doomsday, and Doomsday came off as superior (was that Doomsday year one or something)...and there's no reason to think that wasn't the real DS, though admittedly a much younger one.
There was no fight there.
Quote:They HAVE tried to muddy the waters with DS to some extent, what with avatars for NGs and such, but I think there's still a lot of indication that DS isn't substantially more powerful than DC top tiers....
Absolutely false. Darkseid easily defeated pretty much every top tier in DC and was undisputedly a skyfather level being.
What was the implication of the meeting of DS and DD?
