      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:

    Darkseid was weakened.


Darkseid shows no weakness during the fight, states no weakness during the fight, the narration denotes no weakness during the fight. That because Darkseid was only weakened AFTER the fight as proven here:

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


How?

      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.
    Oh right, it's not real Thanos even after the TPB was titled Thor vs Thanos, eh? How did I know that will be your answer.


That's not what I said. I said it's arguable either way.

    And you said yourself that this was a clean win for Thor.


I said it was a clean win for Thor WITH his belt of strength. I then retracted this after being reminded that he still had a portion of the armor on and that gave him an additional power up. In any case, even if it were Thor with just his belt of strength, it's not completely fair to compare Thor with his belt of strength beating Thanos (once) to normal Superman beating Darkseid (3 different times). Thor with his belt of strength would crush Superman too.
