Thanos and Darkseid are two similar and very powerful characters. I believe that if they were ever to face each other then the results (as well as the battle itself) would nearly destroy all the universe around them. If they were ever to face each other, who'd win? Let's find out!
Thanos & Darkseid At a GlanceEdit
Darkseid: Darkseid is an evil ruler of his own fiery planet; Apokolips. He is a god with superhuman abilities as well as control over the Omega Effect. This allows him to project eye beams that can not only incinerate or teleport but can also curve and turn to catch their opponent. Wonder Woman's bracelets, Superman and Doomsday are some of (if not absolutely) the only things to withstand a blast of his Omega Beams. Darkseid has a large set of other powers that make him nearly omnipotent.
Thanos: Thanos is a ruthless dominator from a planet he has instilled great fear in and devastated. He is a titanian that possesses many super powers and amazing abilities. Thanos's power is best shown through his encounters with others (a point that shall be addressed later on). He possesses powers like a superhuman regeneration factor and teleportation, matter manipulation and energy manipulation. He was formerly immortal because of Death's ban from her embrace but this has been lifted since then.
Thanos has made many accomplishments in his life. He has fought Thor, survived a blast from Odin, has lived through one from Galactus, and has obtained amazing powers such as the Cosmic Cube, Infinity Gauntlet and the Heart of the Universe (with which he has defeated the Living Tribunal!).
Darkseid has maintained rulershup over an entire planet, trained generations of warriors, replaced his father Yuga Khan as ruler of Apokolips, broken a Green Lantern Ring with his bare hands, possessed Dan Turpin, and had earth under his control with the Anti-Life Equation.
Thanos and Darkseid would fight to a stalemate. Both have incredible weapons and feats and it all boils down to who utilizes their devastating weapons better on the day .
