The Argument Of DC’s Darkseid vs Marvel’s Thanos?

Nerds love to argue about who would win in a fight, it is their more adult version of the “my dad could beat up your dad” argument from elementary school. So some backstory for this article, over on twitter DC’s big bad New God was trending, and no it was not because of the “Snyder’s Cut” version of “Justice League”, it was because people were arguing about who would win in a fight. The Mad Titan Thanos vs The New God Darkseid.


Now as mentioned before, nerds all across the world love to debate on who would win in a fight. Whether it be a football team, UFC fighters, comic books, or movies, no one is safe from the argument of who would win. These two have been placed in this argument multiple times together, yet a casual fan of both Marvel and DC would of course think that Thanos would win after watching Endgame and Infinity War, where as a more educated fan of the comic book and superhero genre would know that Darkseid would win. And it seems like most of Twitter sided with Darkseid on this one.


Thanos, although a formiddable foe, has nothing on Darkseid. Darkseid is an idea and exists in all realities while staying with his own New God reality. That might make you question as to how he is then on Earth all the time, well I’ll tell you. Darkseid sends vessels, weaker versions of himself to alternate realities allowing him to be in every reality while staying in his own. This Darkseid Prime, is so powerful that he can’t even step foot into a reality without causing damage to it. At this point, you may be thinking, “Well Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet could wipe Darkseid off the map.” to which I say “HA”. Darkseid has held the Infinity Gauntlet before and decided to throw it away because he thought it to be useless. The gauntlet only works in one reality, the reality it is from, Darkseid could easily remove Thanos from his reality and place him in another by multiple ways, Boom Tube, Portals, Teleportation, you name it. Thanos has no weapon to defeat the New God, and especially no weapon to keep him down.

In fact, if you really want to go into it. The same comic series where the overwhelming Darkseid gains the Infinity Comic, he also kills Thanos with his Omega Beams. Omega Beams that when blasted by, trap you in a never ending loop of death with each death you endure being worse than the last. That ability would also cancel out Thanos’ banisment from death because he isn’t dying per say. And if you think that Thanos is so powerful, he crys before being disintegrated by the almighty Darkseid, the sociopathic tyrant known for wiping out half the universe cries when facing never ending torture.

Yet, I would love to hear your side of the argument. Do you think that Darkseid would crumble from Thanos’ might? Or do you think that Darkseid is just unbeatable? Comment down below and let us know your thoughts.
