Last week saw Darkseid trending on Twitter as fans debated who would win between the DC villain and the Great Titan, Thanos.
So I asked the fans on the Cosmic Book News Facebook page what they thought, with Darkseid coming out on top.
With over 5000 votes cast, fans overwhelmingly chose Darkseid with 60% of the vote to Thanos’ 40%.
One commenter made mention that while Thanos needs the Infinity Stones (Gems in the comics) and Infinity Gauntlet to achieve godhood, Darkseid is already that of a god.
Check out reactions below.
Our latest poll asks: Who wins in an MCU fight between Hulk vs Wolverine!
Fans choose Darkseid
I love Marvel but Darkseid wins. Jack Kirby made best characters for both companies. – Michael Mimay
Obviously Darkseid. Only Jack Kirby knew how powerful he was during the 70s. The true Darkseid is Multiversal. – Jessie Knight
If anyone actually reads comics & has a mind. You pick Darkseid. – Kris Diahann
Darkseid no question, even with Infinity Stones Thanos, although Thanos with the Heart of the Universe would be an interesting thing. – William Christian Garcia
Darkseid, as his powers aren’t restricted to one universe. Darkseid is strong and fast enough to keep up. – George Alexander
All im seeing is Thanos with stones but you guys do know even with the stones he cant make darkseid disappear and Thanos has to have a gauntlet to become a god as to where Darkseid is one on his own.Darkseid hands down. – Juqale Reese
Darkside without the anti-life equation ( base power) can and has accomplished the same feat as Thanos who wielded the infinity gauntlet. That’s how powerful Darksied is. Darksied in his base power is as powerful as Thanos who wields the gauntlet. Darksied wins. – Mike Huffin
Slaughter in Darkseid favor. This is not even close to an actual fight. Darkseid would completely rag doll Thanos all over the cosmos. Don’t get me started with the ANTI -LIFE EQUATION. – Joshua M Childs
Fans choose Thanos
I dunno… I kinda’ like the way that Thanos is constantly obtaining unfathomable amounts of cosmic-power: The Cube, The Gauntlet, The Heart-of-the-Universe (just off the top of my head…) The guy KNOWS how to power-up is what I’m trying to say! – Tracer Anthony
DC fan girls coming out of the woodwork. DCEU Darkseid doesn’t exist, so MCU Thanos obviously wins by default. However, Marvel comics Thanos (without the Infinity Gauntlet) would still beat the breaks off DC Comics Darkseid. Don’t get the films mixed up. Comics Thanos has death as his mate, you can’t kill him. Pointless Poll. – Willie A. Cordova III
In marvel’s universe, thanos wins, the infinity gauntlet doesn’t work outside of the marvel universe, in DC universe The winner is darkseid. This is a fair fight depending on the area of battle. – William Johnson
What if thanos used time stone to when darkseid was created? – Aaron Sanders
This pole is BLASPHEMOUS!! How can Darksied possibly beat Thanos?? Never happen, even without the Infinity Gauntlet. Thanos is entirely two brilliant for him as would simply out chess match him. Darkseid would get angry and over compensate easily leaving himself vulnerable to Thanos’s genius. ANYONE who voted for Darkseid needs to be reported to the Facebook police for being stupid. These poll results also better improve or I will likely report this pole too!!!
Thanos has defeated:
Eternity, Galactus, The Living Tribunal, The Silver Surfer, Adam Warlock, Hulk, Thor, Odin, Love and Hate, the Celestials, Lord Chaos and Master Order, the Inbetweener, the entire XMen team combined, the entire Fantastic Four team combined, the entire Avengers team combined,
by saying Darkseid wins the fight you are essentially saying Darkseid is more powerful than anyone else in the Marvel Universe which is also preposterous! – Jon Amo
