Thanos has a lot more feats under his belt. I'm going with him.

Surfer vs Manhattan would have been a better fight. Thanos tanks everything the good doctor has without a scratch and proceeds to pimp smack him into the next dimension.

@JediXMan: Dr Manhattan can control anything he can understand.in that in mind the only way to kill DM is to drain the energy from his physical body.thanos might be able to do this but i'm not sure.

Anything? No. He cannot control time, reality, space, souls, or the mind. He is limited only to the physical; aka matter and energy.
 
Thanos has fought with people a lot stronger than Manhattan. I've used this analogy before, and it seems to fit:
 
Manhattan is a giant fish in a tiny pond. Anybody that attempts to attack him is carelessly tossed aside and eaten.
When this big fish enters the ocean, he ends up for sale at a fish market.
 
Manhattan is only "god-like" to humans.

There's a reason no one brought that up.

Because the only person in Watchmen Manhattan of any note was Rorschach. It's a shining endorsement when you're going up against a guy who's smarter then everyone in that entire series.

Theres nothing bar a BFR Manhattan can do to Thanos while the Avatar of Death can do a lot of hurting to Manhattan.

With no super powers to speak of to boot. Manhattan's cosmic feats cap off at tank busting, oh well.

the good doctor takes this one. it would be an interesting fight though seeing how doc hasnt been seen really fighting hand-to-hand.

Dr Manhattan. Without effort.

Manhattan's best feats don't measure up to Thanos', at all.

Doctor Manhattan's main gambit is BFR and Matter manipulation. Since Thanos can teleport under his own power, and also due to tech which is standard gear to him, BFR would be useless. Yes Thanos' vast strength is useless to Manhattan due to intangibility, but so is Manhattan's Matter manipulation (read Thanos quest). What swings it is Thanos' mind powers, which Manhattan hasn't shown any resistance to.

@laflux: but his mind is not solid so he can't get mind attacked can he?

He has a consciousnesses which can be attacked so yes. Thanos can just attack astrally, as he did to Galactus (although he lost in that battle).

Well the mind doesnt have to be solid to be affect. That being said Thanos has killed beings like Rot, who was well death energy personified, had no solid form whatsoever, purely made of dark energy and was slowely eating away the universe. I do not think affecting him in a fight would be beyond Thanos, but then i am a huge Thanos fan :p

The instance in question is from Avengers Celestial Quest 08 and here are the scans
