Who would win in a brawl: Thanos or Darkseid? | The Tylt
Marvel's Thanos and DC's Darkseid are two of the most powerful villains in their respective comic book (and extended) universes. Both are tyrannical rulers who pose a threat in taking over (or destroying) their respective universe. Thanos is actually "inspired by" his predecessor Darkseid. But Thanos has amassed much more popularity by successfully destroying half of the universe in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was temporary, but still. While Darkseid is a powerhouse who paved the way for Thanos, he's still DC's ultimate villain, giving the Justice League a run for their lives. In a Universe crossover, who would win in a brawl?
Who would win in a brawl: Thanos or Darkseid?
According to Colin Tessier for CBR:
Thanos has the Infinity Gauntlet:
As Thanos displayed in Infinity War, whoever has access to the legendary Infinity Stones instantly becomes arguably the most powerful figure in the universe. The Mad Titan has a long-running connection with the stones and the character’s infamous quest to gather them and reshape the universe in his image (in the comics and on the big screen) is part of some of the most famous stories in Marvel’s long history.
Darkseid has the Anti-Life Equation:
...the formula represents the dark side (pun intended) of life itself. At times, such as Final Crisis, Darkseid has gained control of the Equation and the results are often catastrophic. Grant Morrison, in his famous Seven Soldiers miniseries, established that the Equation is built on loneliness, despair, mockery, condemnation, judgment, among others, and it can be used to influence sentient creatures.
#ThanosFTW because we witnessed the Mad Titan wipe away half of all life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He literally took down Avenger after Avenger, and then erased them by rewriting universal history. Whew...Darkseid might want to watch out.
#DarkseidFTW because he already serves a threat to Superman, the collective Justice League and the universe. His Anti-Life Equation is to be reckoned with, Thanos!
