No, it's just Darkseid takes forever to actually achieve his goal because of his sheer incompetence. Darkseid took decades to get the ALI. Thanos would've gotten it in a week. Then lost it cause he didn't really want it, then got it a 2nd time just for kicks.

Darkseid leaves most of the strategic planing to Desaad. Thanos does everything himself and has tech that blocks him from being detected even by Galactus' machines. Darkseid ain't got nothin on Thanos.

Explain how Thanos gets the ALE in a week? Where is he getting the tech to pull it out of people's heads, where is he getting his knowledge of the Source, and where is he learning how to tell what the ALE looks like in people? Darkseid had to invent tech, spend centuries searching, and had knowledge of the Source by way of being part of it and having been trapped in it. Also, we don't know what he was doing the entire time, since that FC retconn that he has never truly manifested, and thus he was never truly devoting himself fully to anything we have seen him do.

He's had it twice, IIRC. Once back in the 70s, when he was fused with the Source and blown up by his own planet, and then again in Final Crisis. Between then, he has slowly been getting bits and pieces of it, and discovered that the true ALE is the opposite side of the Source, and thus he decided to focus more on the Source than the ALE. Though he did have part of it in New Gods v3 (IIRC) and used it to screw up the Source. In fact, he took a large diversion from his plans for a while to troll Orion, trying to make himself a worthy successor. He knew he had eternity, and thus didn't try too hard, since he figured no-one else would get it first. Orion and Mister Miracle did, but MM doesn't use it and Orion did, but was defeated by MM.

Also, Darkseid collapsed the Multiverse by trying to manifest in reality, Thanos has nothing on that :P

Thanos has numerous ways of figuring all of that out, and in a much shorter length of time than Darkseid. For one, Thanos can enter realms others can't save the Cosmic Hierarchy. Including the Nexus of All Reality (Not the Nexus of Time). Thanos has a crystal that allows him to see into the future and can pop into Death's Realm and look through the Infinity Well for any and all knowledge about anything he wants.

Technology wise, Thanos has tech better than anyone else in the MU and he's a powerful telepath all on his own. Such a would would be relatively easy for him. More to the point, Darkseid takes a considerable more amount of time to get what he wants. Thanos doesn't. And Thanos does it all on his own. He doesn't need an army and cronies to get things done, despite having them when he decides to use them.

Also, Darkseid collapsed the Multiverse by trying to manifest in reality, Thanos has nothing on that :P

Thanos got the HOTU and absorbed the multiverse. Despite knowing it was all planned by TOAA and Thanos didn't want to have any part in fixing everything. He ended up doing it anyway because of his love for Death.

And there's always something people forget, and it's something Vision and Warlock have both stated. When it comes to Thanos, if he didn't want to lose, he wouldn't. When Cap America is praising everyone for "saving the universe from Thanos", Vision had to turn to him and explain how absurd that statement really was.

You can't say the same for Darkseid. He doesn't plan to lose, yet does, and blames it on his cronies. And we all know for a fact, that Thanos has never been so foolish and out of sorts that he'd forget how to-

walk down a set of three stairs.

Prove that would allow him to figure it out. You have to prove that somehow Thanos will understand the Source better than the people who have spent millenia trying to figure it out. You can't just say "Thanos is smart so he will figure it out because... he can use things that don't exist in DC." That argument doesn't work. If you can find a way to prove Thanos could appear in DC with no prior knowledge of the ALE, then somehow stumble across the Martians out of all the species in the universe, and somehow talk to them about the Life-Equation, and then somehow narrow down Earth has the only planet in the universe with a naturally occurring ALE, and then figure out how to get it out of their heads (telepathy won't work, Darkseid has that and uses it), and then find enough humans to get all the disparate pieces, and do all that in a week, then you can say that Thanos would obviously do it faster than Darkseid.

Alright, why does using cronies matter? Darkseid has already proved he is more powerful than all his cronies, so why does using other people matter? Darkseid built the Soulfire thing all by himself, that is rather a ridiculous feat. Again though, why does half of that matter when deciding who is smarter? So what if he has better Marvel tech, if that stuff isn't shown in DC than the two comparisons become null and void, since there is no way to compare them.

Ex) Daleks thought up time travel. The Culture didn't. Daleks are obviously smarter. <- is wrong, because time travel doesn't exist in the Culture series, so it is apples and oranges.

Beyond that, a lot of Apokalips tech is actually natural god abilities, Darkseid jsut surpresses the knowledge of that.

Prove that would allow him to figure it out

So are you going to go out of your way and say that Thanos wouldn't have access to all his resources? That's quite ridiculous. It's the same as saying Darkseid doesn't have his team of cronies, or armies or ships or anything under his control and he's by himself in a backwater corner of the universe and has to discover it and figure it out without any prior connection to the Source Wall.

Can you in any way Prove Darkseid could even do that without any kind of support at all? No, you can't. On the other hand, Thanos left his homeworld, ventured into space, became an incredibly powerful fighter, built an army, and then attacked Titan and nearly wiped out his own race. Thanos started with little more than his intelligence and his powers, and achieved many things on his own.

It took Thanos less than a week after Death revived him to reacquire all six Infinity Gems again and create the Infinity Gauntlet.

Alright, why does using cronies matter? Darkseid has already proved he is more powerful than all his cronies, so why does using other people matter?

If he was Smarter and Stronger, he wouldn't need cronies. Thanos doesn't need others to do any thinking for him. And the only one whom may ever be considered family to him was Gamora. She has at times even called him "Father" and he referred to Gamora as "Daughter", despite them not being remotely related. Even when trying to kill each other, they still end up grinning at the end of the day.

And people seem to forget this is Post-Crisis Darkseid, who is a massive jobber. He isn't deserving of respect.

Darkseid did his without a power up, it was simply his soul crushing it. Thanos needed a power-up.

Darksied was using a powerup. Now, which was it? The full might of the Source Wall, or was this the SoulFire Force? Or was this his Pre-Crisis nigh-omnipotent self where all writing during that time was completely absurd and they had no idea what they were doing?

Beyond the fact that he was depowered at the time

Know what happened when Thanos didn't have powers? He had to have a sword fight with the Silver Surfer in another dimension where none of their powers worked, and he still won.

Darkseid can't even do something simple and not even work hard a day in his life. Thanos has, and because he wanted to.

You said it would take him a week to figure out, nowhere near as long as Darkseid. So I said, have him do it the same way that Darkseid did and do it better. Yeshs, sure, he probably could if he had all the resources of Marvel, but Darkseid didn't, he had to figure it all out on his own, making up machines and theories as he went. Put Thanos in the exact same condition, and then prove he could do better. Apples and Oranges comparison otherwise.

Thanos started with little more than his intelligence and his powers, and achieved many things on his own.

Darkseid was born, traveled off world and broke the Greek/Roman gods into two groups, came back, figured out how to gain the Omega powers, then orchestrated the deaths of multiple people on his planet. Then, he ran a war against equally powered beings. And all the while he was traveling the universe learning knowledge. He learned of the life-equation, made the leap of faith that there was an Anti-Life equation, and then began BSing his way to gaining it. Darkseid won the War in Heaven, according to Metron. He killed nearly every pantheon of gods in the DC universe, on his own. he has done quite a bit without his men.

Wait, it was a week? huh, alright. That still is apples to oranges, though. Thanos had the Infinity Well and saw them in it, and then knew where they were. Darkseid had a crazy idea, that turned out to be true, but he had to make up the theories behind it and how it worked as he went. Again, apples and oranges. Give Darkseid the Infinity Well, along with special status from Death, and then have him do it. The IG quest, and the ALE quest, are fundamentally different. One is trying to get 6 objects from 6 ridiculously powered individuals, the other is trying to figure out how a nebulous concept actually works, and how to get it from the things it is trapped in, all while fighting a war on multiple levels against an opponent that is equal to or greater than you, for millenia.

Darkseid has other concerns, he has to run a planet/multi-dimensional war. Why doesn't the President of the US do everything in the governmenty, write laws, plan military strategy, go on SWAT missions, help design new weapons? Because he has things he can do, and can delegate them. That is how being a ruler works.

No, stated by both Nix Uotan and Darkseid, it was simply his soul crushing reality in its death throws. He had never fully manifested, and that was what happened when he did. Unless I missed a scan saying it was him powered up, the reason was simply that he had never bothered to fully manifest in reality until then, and as a result reality began to collapse as a black hole with his soul. I AM NOT GOING TO USE THAT AS A REASON WHY DARKSEID IS POSSIBLY STRONGER OR POSSIBLY SMARTER. I was just slightly, sarcastically pointing that out, not meaning to actually use it as a debate point. Hence the smiley.

Post-Crisis Darkseid broke the Source Wall, nearly broke Orion, got the anti-Life, etc. He was only pitiful in showings outside of the New God comics.

Yes, and... Was Thanos specifically weakened to near pitifulness by the depowering, having almost all his strength absorbed to the point of barely being able to stand? Because Darkseid was (though the end of that arc reveals that he wasn't as pitiful as he made himself out to be, he was just toying with Desaad, but he was still weak).

That Surfer feat is being mis-represented just though you would like full detail.

Surfer and Thanos want to settle their difference by fighting in Astral plane, and upon their request Dr. Strange sends them to astral dimension where neither of them have power. They fight, Surfer actually wins the fight but heists to kill Thanos, because, of course, killing is not in his character. Thanos then takes the opportunity and nearly kills Surfer and claims he is victorious, a claim Surfer admits.

A little less impressive when you see the whole detail

Below are the scan, check it out yourself

Silver Surfer vol 3, 59

Hope this help :)

I dont like the whole idea of comparing feats from one company to another either, but perhaps its just a gut feeling, at least when Starlin was writing it, he looked pretty smart. Then Bendis comes in and Thanos cant distinguish a fake cosmic cube from the real one o_O...

Its better to wait till Infinity Series to see what Thanos is going to be like, i trust Hickman to write him well, although we saw a hint in recent Guardian of the Galaxy Infinity Comics 03 that Thanos might make an appearance in GOTG, given its under Bendis pen, he is totally going to crap all over Thanos's legacy.

@reikai: To be fair I would consider using his cronies as intelligent, if he didn't utilize his cronies in doing the sweat work that would be stupid. Most of his appearances have him as a backroom operator either never making a physical appearance or not appearing until the end of the arc.

@killemall: Intelligence is hard to compare because it comes in multiple flavours. Many of the people on the vine believe that Doom constantly acquiring the plot device of the month to battle the heroes is the epitome of villain intelligence when I prefer Luthors manipulation through often well written dialogue, heavily dependent on the writer so sometimes it's mediocre or downright sh*t.

Fair enough.

Although Dr. Doom was done a whole lot of manipulating other, most impressively during Dr. Doom/ Dr. Strange: Triumphs and Torment , where it was revealed at the end of the novel that Dr. Doom wanted to free his mother soul into heaven, and for that he manipulated The Vishanti, Dr. Strange, and Mephisto in his own domain.

Thats pretty awesome manipulation when you think about it, specially considering The Vishanti were meant to be all knowing (although in all honestly thats a heavy hyperbole) and Mephisto is extremely intelligent himself.

BTW 2012 Journey into the Mystery is filled with Loki manipulating , well, everyone, as a kid :p

@killemall: I would consider manipulating Strange to be the best part of that, people seem to get one over on Mephisto fairly often and powerful but vague cosmic entities are rarely very bright.

Despite the fact that humans have limits on potential intelligence and they are often mentioned within the comics themselves we still often get the better of powerful entities with wits.

I know a massive Loki fan, I'm surprised I haven't read it myself being a fan of Gillens work on Uncanny.

@ancient_0f_days: haha fair enough, though he seems to be operating a surveillance camera, I'd say his PC knowledge is very limited.

lol yeah, he usually has dessad for all that work, Darkseid seems more "cunning" then legitimately intelligent in most cases

PC Darkseid actually did a lot of work with his science buddy Metron building things such as weapons of mass destruction when they where at war with new genesis and then mainly focusing on the anti-life equation afterwards.

They would also normally use mother/father boxes over normal computers. That JL series that scan with the computer was taken from would have even Bendis go "what the hell" with how inaccurately it portaryed all the new gods.

Heh, that scan with Pythia - Darkseid will go there to relax IIRC, and heck, the scan with him and Metron building the machine was as close to being a hero as he ever got.
