Who is the strongest Marvel or DC character Despero can beat?

Without any plot device items such as IG, HOTG, Nullifier, etc., who is the strongest character from DC or Marvel that Despero can KO or kill?

I wish to exclude BFR from this question as I feel it's often used as a copout among combatants who, morals on or off, would likely fight to the death before ever settling for a BFR.

He's a very high end telepath so it would probably be someone that is a powerhouse but isn't outright immune to telepathy.

@Dextersinister: I'd like examples, if you could.

Maybe Doomsday? It'd be a hell of a brawl and Doomsday is certainly not backing down from a fight.

@Skyfather: The question should be who is the strongest character Despero can't beat.

@dondave: Well that's the character one step up from the answer to my question, so if you'd rather answer that one, go right ahead. But really though, if you take your question too literally, the answer to that question for anybody would be the single strongest character in either DC or Marvel, and that's not quite what I'm asking.

@Skyfather: Despero is strongr than most of DC or Marvel's heroes, he trumped Superman,Powergirl, Captain Marvel and Hourman at the same time, he is more powerful than MMH in terms of telepathy and was able to mindr*pe him.

Soi'd have to be somebody like Thanos or Darkseid that can beat him, any body undr he can beat

@beautifulrevery: Galactus most definitely is not the strongest character he couldn't beat. I could name a couple dozen off the top of my head that are stronger than Galactus that Despero couldn't beat.

I thought you were saying Galactus is the strongest he could beat because of Galactus' perennial low showings in the first post, lol.

Anyone under Thanos an Darkseid.

Despero can beat Thanos/Darkseid with a struggle but that's about as high as he goes. He can't beat a moderately fed Galactus. Galactus can oneshot Thanos and Despero would have a hard time beating him(not Avengers Assemble travesty Thanos but classic)

LOL no ...... Both are highly resistant to telepathy, are excellent telepaths themselves and are very resistant to damage as well as they both can BFR Despero by looking at him. Darkseid can transmute Despero or even create a being more powerful than Despero like Stayne who can control matter. In a Fist fight, Thanos would outlast Despero, Darkseid would outfight Despero and outsmart him. God forbid there be any prep involved.

I meant with no prep whatsoever. Random encounter. If there's prep involved anyone would be hard pressed to beat Thanos or Darkseid. Telepathy is useless so it's all about physical power and Despero is not much weaker than Thanos or Darkseid in my opinion. He can win with quite a struggle if they don't BFR him. In a fist fight he'd go the distance and might pull out a few wins. I was addressing the fact that someone stated that Despero could beat Galactus which is in my opinion one of the most idiotic things I've ever heard.

I think he worded it wrong but obviously Despero isn't beating Galactus, you are right about that. I mean, he got stomped by Starro....

This alone should define Despero's limits ,,,,,

Manchester Black was able to manipulate original Doomsday's mind Despero could possibly do the same.
