Quote:his point is clear IMO. The Kazar TPB is not specified and marketed as 'Kazar vs. Thanos', its just showing some Kazar issues and features him fighting someone...it could be anyone, but is not marketed specifically as vs. Thanos.
Quote:the Superman vs. Darkseid TPB is specifically marketed as battles between those two characters.
Quote:Were it instead a TPB that showed issues 4-9 that happened to have the fight in it, Zvelf wouldn't have a point at all. If it were a collection called 'Really cool Superman fights where he looks like a badass', Zvelf wouldn't have a point. His point is that it is specifically marketed as Superman vs. Darkseid, so by implication, he's saying they are clearly indicating that it was Darkseid, not someone impersonating DS. Now, had the TPB come out before the retcon, he'd lose his point as well, but his point is that it was released AFTER the retcon.
Quote:Now, again, I would wager that this was not an intentional, thought out thing, but rather some junior editor was putting together a TPB that he thought would sell, and did a quick look at Superman vs. Darkseid, and was likely unaware of any potential retcon, and released a book with some cool fights....but zvelf's logic is sound.
And what about Thor vs Thanos then?
