As I recall, no one defeats Thanos in Avengers: Celestial Quest and I don't see where he is shown as less than steller. As a matter of fact, Thanos performs some pretty good feats that were retconned as feats for the clone. This again gives evidence to Starlin's motivation not being entirely due to Thanos losing, but rather characterization he didn't like. And the retcon of all of three happened on one single page, so its not as if he is adding retcons to multiple books.
Being that the Squirrel Girl retcon was not written by Starlin, that would not count against him. And the defeat as well as the retcon were both written by Dan Slott.
The "weakened state" statement made no sense and is basically ignored. Giffen explained that well enough in that Drax specifically serves as "kryptonite" for Thanos. Maybe that is what he meant by Thanos being weakened. Weakened by Drax.
