By Capt. WisemanSeptember 23, in DC Comics. These two are supposed to be the best evil heavy hitters in either league, as far as tangible characters go.
Wow, I need to do my homework. Pretty evenly matched, of course, but I think Thanos is just a bit tougher, smarter, and has much more experience fighting beings with as much or more power than he possesses.
I may be a bit biased, though. Ruler of Apokolips, father of Orion. Most meaningless portmanteau. Since Thanos comes from the Greek for "death", maybe "Deathseid" would have been better? Thanos is a little less arrogant, which would give him the upper hand I think. In terms of Raw power, Darkseid and his OmegaBeams have the upper hand.
Ok, Darkseid wins hands down!! Darkseid is naturally more powerful as a base character. Darkseid is also physically stronger, Thanos is matched by people in the Marvel universe that Superman would wipe the floor with and Darkseid is as strong as Superman. Darkseid and Thanos have displayed equal levels of intelligence but just overall Darkseid would win, considering the latest year in the DC universe, Darkseid fooled the Source and went toe-to-toe with it and managed to trap it and his victory was upset only by Orion.
This is where I think the scale tips. Thanos is capable of absorbing "Cosmic Energy". Are Darkseid's Omega blast considered cosmic energy?? If so, then Thanos has the upper hand. If not, then Darkseid has it. Its more than Omega Beams, Darkseid is just plane stronger, and is a trained warrior though he prefers not to fight. Also Darkseid has a host of other powers he has displayed throughout the years, if my memory serves right, Thanos doesn't have extra power, its his technology that he uses.
That is a fact.
Darkseid vs. Thanos
Death, his immortal love, granted him new life AND new powers. He became a true harbinger of Death's device. Darkseid may have more raw power, but that isn't something that would deter Thanos.
He's stood up to Odin, gone toe-to-toe with guys like Thor and Champion who had the power gemand outsmarted the Elders of the Universe. He devised a way to take down Galactus, and has conquered the universe several times. It would be the toughest fight of his life, but I think Thanos takes it.
This is the Hypothetical Thanos that didn't have his heart ripped out by Drax during Annihilation and became the new "Death", right? Heh, i was gonna bring that up Ah hell, Darkseid wins wither way. I realize it's a DC board, but sheesh. Marvel has made Sentry and Hulk stronger and stronger as the days go by.Darkseid : Darkseid is an evil ruler of the fiery planet, Apokolips.
He is an extradimensional being apart of the self proclaimed new gods who draw their power from another dimension. He has superhuman abilities and control over the Omega Effect, which 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 onto the target's soul, preventing it from escaping. Wonder Woman's bracelets, along with Superman and Doomsday, are some of 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 DC Universe.
Darkseid also has a whole army of other New Gods with the same attributes as his, except for the Omega Beams that he can call on for assistance. Darkseid is also the immortal-like demon God of Evil. He is fast enough to go from one end of the universe to the other in five seconds. Thanos : In the Marvel universe, Thanos is a ruthless demon-like alien dictator from the moon Titan, who possesses many super powers and abilities, like a superhuman regeneration factor, teleportation, matter manipulation, and energy manipulation.
He was formerly immortal because of Death's ban from her embrace. Both Thanos and Darkseid contain a wide array of world-destroying abilities, but at the end of the day Darkseid reigns superior. Not only can his Omega Beams literally erase Thanos from existence before he'd even know what hit him as Omega Beams function fast enough to catch speedstersteleport him to any location including the inside of a Quasar if he wantedand disintegrate him on contact, but even his physicality alone would overwhelm Thanos a lot argue that Darkseid has trouble fighting Superman as a way to measure how he'd fare with Thanos, yet in doing so disregard the fact that Superman is one of the most powerful beings in the multiverse and has only been vanquished by few, including Darkseid.
When Darkseid has the anti-life-equation equipped and Thanos has the Infinity Gauntlet equipped, it is not a matter of power, but a matter of who strikes first. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki.

Thanos VS Darkseid
The Mad Titan, specifically, has become a pop culture icon after the incredible success of Avengers: Infinity War. Darkseid was meant to serve a similar role in the DC Extended Universe and he could still become a successful villain on the big screen in the Worlds of DC. But, Thanos has separated himself from his predecessor. Since then, the two villains have been constantly linked and compared to each other. Darkseid has also plagued the DC Universe and its heroes, with Final Crisis being a prominent example of his sinister deeds.
Both characters are remarkably similar in appearance and they also have similar backgrounds as they have each served as the tyrannical ruler of a planet: Apokolips for Darkseid and Titan for Thanos. Both have an incredibly powerful weapon, the Omega Beams and the Infinity Gauntlet, respectively, are two of the most potent tools in all of comic books. Through the years, various retcons and changes have altered what the Anti-Life Equation means.
But, for the most part, the formula represents the dark side pun intended of life itself. At times, such as Final CrisisDarkseid has gained control of the Equation and the results are often catastrophic.
It took an absolute miracle from Superman to stop him. As Thanos displayed in Infinity War, whoever has access to the legendary Infinity Stones instantly becomes arguably the most powerful figure in the universe.
Each stone grants its wielder incredible power, controlling all five of them can make someone omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient.
The stones also provide the mastery of time, the mind, and life itself. With the Infinity Gauntlet around his wrist, Thanos is practically unstoppable, which gives him an edge over Darkseid. Each individual Parademon may not be very impressive, but when Darkseid unleashes a monstrous swarm of them, they can tip the scales in any battle.
These troopers each have a power set that makes them stand apart from typical cannon fodder. Parademons have heightened strength, endurance, and pain tolerance.
The DCEU put a different spin on the Parademons; the big screen version of the troopers were attracted to fear and had the ability to transform other beings into Parademons this ability has appeared in the comics. Thanos is, at times, the ruler of Titan and Darkseid is the dictator of Apokolips.
The Mad Titan, though, also has a universally feared special task force at his command. The Black Order works for Thanos and often helps him meet his nefarious goals. Overall, the dictator of Apokolips is on par with the most dangerous threats in the DCU. Thanos is more than just a Titan who occasionally has the powers of the Infinity Gauntlet.
With the ability to absorb energy and blast it back out, Thanos is a powerhouse in his own right. The Mad Titan has enhanced this power through the use of bionicle and mystical means. Thanos has used this ability to exchange blows with beings as powerful as Odin and Galactus, knocking the latter off his feet.
The power to manipulate energy lets Thanos create energy shields as well as force fields, which makes The Mad Titan a truly indomitable adversary.
Also, Darkseid has access to a cosmic energy called the Omega Effect, which powers the beams.If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the FAQ by clicking the link above.

The elders of the universe never struck me as smart and majestic individuald, Grandmaster aside, to be honest. Thanos outsmarting them shouldn't be something outrageous.
Good thoughts on the differences between Darkseid and Thano. The more I think about it, they aren't as alike at first glance. Still, my Marvel bias shows a lot when I watch things like this. Spoiler alert, our favorite Mad Titan doesn't come out on top here: Yeah, it makes sense and all, but man, the outcome really threw me off. For so many years on the message boards fans always said Thanos would always be the victor over Darkseid.
Haven't read what happened to Thanos after Hickman's Secret Wars. Has he been nerfed recently? Is he treading into jobber territory in the Marvel Universe? Originally Posted by The Cool Thatguy. He made the Champion into a dumber Hulk, for one thing. More than that, they've always had cosmic power, yet none of them were able to use the gems themselves? Cherry on top, none of them are actually immortal, just really long lived. Originally Posted by davew Actually they are immortal.The question of whether Darkseid or Thanos would win in a fight is a debate that will never be settled.
It's not hard to see why the theoretical title fight of Darkseid vs. Thanos would gain momentum, as consummate 'big bads' of DC's comics and Marvel's movies, respectively. But tempting as it may be, comic book fans shouldn't waste their time wondering if Thanos could somehow defeat the mighty Darkseid.
Especially not when DC Comics has already revealed the only man to truly beat the mighty New God despite his best defenses, and continue to beat him every single year: Santa Claus. Yes, really.
In hindsight, it seems foolish to think that Thanos and Darkseid would ever come to blows, since they're cut from the same cloth. Heck, Darkseid just recreated Thanos' Infinity War beatdown as a tribute. But evil and determined as he may be, Thanos is still just flesh and blood, relying on food, water, and most importantly a traditional army to conquer planets and peoples. But an enemy like Santa Claus? That's determination and spirit that even the Parademons of Apokolips can't hope to stop.
The honor of passing on this eons-old rivalry falls to writer and artist Ty Templeton in a short story titled "Present Tense. As Darkseid's faithful servant falls to his knees, he informs his master that yet again, the impossible has taken place. If comic readers have ever wondered what would make a God quiver, this tale reveals that Darkseid spends his year counting down the days until his armies are reduced to hordes of gingerbread men, his ground and air defenses rendered as ineffective as so many reindeer, and he is once again brought face to face with the embodiment of his most crippling failure.
Considering the patience that Thanos exhibited through almost all of his battles with the Avengers, it's hard to imagine the kind of internal strength needed for Darkseid to remain composed, watching Santa Claus once again stride happily into his Apokoliptian fortress, oblivious to the smoke still rising from his singed red suit. Standing silent as he realizes that no matter how many worlds he's conquered, or how much closer he's come to unlocking the Anti-Life Equation, his name will still be scrawled on the 'Naughty' list.
And stay his hand as a lump of coal is once again offered as tribute to a God.
Readers are left to assume that Darkseid MUST stay his hand and allow Santa Claus to carry out his mission, possibly governed by some even greater sense or law of cosmic order.
But watching as Santa Claus and his reindeer escape the orbit of Apokolips, effortlessly dodging the Omega Beams impotently fired from Darkseid, one has to wonder if the Lord of Apokolips is simply outmatched, fair and square. For what good is fear, dominance, power, and conquest in the face of an entity fueled by milk and cookies, serving nothing but the holiday spirit?
Darkseid would welcome Thanos. Despite calling the vast nothingness of the Canadian prairies home or perhaps because of it film and television have been a passion since birth. As a graduate of the University of Manitoba with a degree in English Literature, Andrew has grown to appreciate the story and writing behind everything from blockbuster comic book movies to schlocky B-movie action.

However, Uxas ended up killing his mother Heggra to wrest control of Apokolips from her after his father got trapped on the Source Wall.
What a Dick. Without regret or remorse he took up the god name Darkseid.

However great powerhouses like Superman can be to harm him, Darkseid in his ultimate form the soul fire is able to defeat powerful beings like Mordru, Anti Monitor, Time Trapper, and even an omnipotent being the Source.
Wiz: Darkseid however is fueled by the Omega Effect, a force of entropy from the destructive side of the Source and use it in a plethora of ways. Wiz: He can also teleport, increase his size and for more deadly attacks he can use the Omega Sanction which is like a living hell, it traps the foe in a series of alternate realities each worse than the last, he also can create avatars to help him attack.

Now imagine that pain continuing forever. Wiz: Darkseid can insert this equation into the heads of his foes, giving the feeling that life is. Wiz: Uh, oh whatever.
