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 turn at right angles to catch their opponent. The Omega Beams,sometimes called Omega Sanction, lock on to the target's soul and therefore the target can't escape. 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. Darkseid is said to be hundreds of thousands of Earth years old though Apokolips lives outside the normal boundaries of time and space in the Universe. Apokolips and the New Gods live across the whole multiverse with only the single form they always have. Darkseid also has a whole army of other New Gods with the same attributes as Darkseid, barring the Omega Beams, that he can call on for assistance.
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.
In between their fight on the moon Hulk comes and kicks both. They both punch him and he lands in Tokyo.
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 but in the end darkseid wins, because he destroyed dc multiverses while thanos fails to destroy 1 universe
