    I had actually forgotten about Darkseid’s moobs…

    …I voted for Thanos simply because he’s come back from dead more often than Jean Grey and killed the universe a whole bunch of times (only to have it reversed, but who’s keeping score?).

    Everybody looses to Squirrel Girl. Even Darkseid.

    The only person who can beat her is Chuck Norris. :)

    And Darkseid is of course immune to the dreaded Purple Nurple, as they already ARE purple.

    The way Thanos plans and sets aside his own ego and pride (most times) makes him the winner over Darkseid (now with a new name and 68% more lameness) any day.

    Baal, makes a good point. At no point did Thanos ever become and underground ganster butchering his own name in a not so clever way.

    And while yes, Thanos has been defeated by Squirrel Girl, who hasn’t? Squirrels are the number two most terrifying mammal.

    Bunnies are the number one. Seriously, what’s with all the carrots? Why do they need such good eye-sight for anyways?

    I’ve seen Thanos go toe-to-toe with the Beyonder and win. I vote Thanos.

    Yes, but did Thanos ever have a song written about him?

    This was a tough one for me.
    Went with Darkseid simply based off the Great Darkness Saga (not this hidden-inside-a-gangster stuff although issue #3 of Final Crisis may show just how bad this gangster is).
    Can’t underestimate Thanos’ calculations though.
