Not to my knowledge its isn't.

its been reprinted in so many different formats I'm sure thats somewhat of a contributing factor.

As well Dragons popularity hasn't been all that high the last decade.

Savage Dragon came out the gate with great sales numbers, but it hasn't been in diamonds top 100 for most of the last decade.

I love the series, and think it has more bang for your buck than almost everything DC and Marvel produce!

The Savage Dragon Archives (2 out there with a 3rd on the way!)are a phenomenal way to catch up as well a great price and format for 25 comics in one volume!

You're funny.

SO we should just take your word at it cause you said so?

Cause my collection of Dragon comics says otherwise!

Look don't get me wrong Thanos is uber powerful I get it.

But Superman is THE champion of the DCU, the guys who can take down practically anybody when it comes down to it, I could see Thanos winning in a fight but can simply see Supes winning more of em.

I give Supes 6 outta 10 fights and thats that.

Again thats all things considered equal, Thanos with prep time/home ground advantage would smoke Supes.

Of course they don't count, why should they when they intentionally even out some characters at the expense of others? For example, Superman Vs. Thor, I LOVE how they have Superman pulling all the stops using every degree of heat vision he can muster, but you don't see Thor hurling bolts of ethereal energy? SS and Darksied, Silver Surfer, the cosmic being that can't be harmed by any Marvel hero as he is the herald of Galactus and wielder of the immeasurable power cosmic, gets hurt by the Omega effect? DC vs. Marvel, Wonder Woman gets taken out by... three to four seconds of lightning? Wolverine STABS LOBO unconscious? Aquaman drops a WHALE on Namor? Hulk punches pre-crisis Superman to the far reaches of space in the early 80's crossover? Cap gets beaten by Batman, completely contradictory to batman’s own dialogue in JLA/Avengers? Magneto gets tossed by Darksied? Krona actually kills Galactus? NON ONONONNONONONO… NO. They are TERRIBLE references, and not series canon for a reason.

Okay i get it now. You can't even get your own facts traight but you want me to provide all sorta of facts that you will ignore. You assert that Darkseid shouldn't have been able to hurt the Surfer, but yet applaud all examples of Thanos smearing the dirt with Surfer? Yeah, you're not being rediculously biased at all are you? "
WTF are you talking about? Darksied isn't even on Thanos level. What part of Thanos is cosmic don't you understand? It's common knowledge that Thanos can hurt the surfer, cause pain to Galactus, fight ODIN on an even playingfield, punk Mephisto, be IMMUNE to death, and rearrange molecules as he sees fit. Even in continuity the only way he LOSES is because of his subconscious or if he pisses of Galactus. Whatever he wants, he obtains. How many times was the entire universe in jeapordy because Thanos was able to obtain power? Thanos DWARFS Darksied. PERIOD. I'm being biased? On the contrary, you're acting like a fanboy! How can you asserert Superman being invulnerable to his very BEING manipulated on a molecular level? Thanos isn't a small time ruler of a planet that gets punked out by big blue. If you want to go by the crossovers, the full power of the OMEGA EFFECT doesn't even cause Galactus a cough. Thanos causes Galactus PAIN, pain enough for Galactus to get his helmet knocked off and reveal his bald head and a subsequent demand of "full alert" from his ship.

Nice edits, just for the record my edits just involved spelling and sentence structure.

The thing punched out Galactus too so why not take that out of context and say that the Thing can whup Supes too?

In your example Thanos himself states that he did little more than anger Galactus, so your own arguements working against you really.

Well where are your scans proving that Darkseid is anything less than Thanos?

Cause Darkseid can claim all the same stuff pal.

Darkseid wasted the Greek Gods, is an Immortal, can rearrange molecules to the point of resurrecting those of his minions he kills!

A feat I'm pretty sure even ol Thanos can't claim sans infinity gems.

Listen you seem top think that I lack knowledge of the Marvel U, but its abundantly clear that you're just a marvel fanboy whos answer is "Marvels better!" without actually backing it up in any way shape or form.

I've posted all sorts of evidence, and backed up my arguments while you're blowing hot air.

You said it 1st so abide by your own rules:back it up, or give it a rest.

Again, Dragon CAN hurt Collosus just as he hurt characters like Mighty Man, Powerhouse, Thor, etc.

Sure hes not as strong as the Hulk but hes waaaay faster, the big C would hardly be able to touch Dragon and after taking about 50 shots to the head from a guy who can lift 30 tons that steel brains gonna have a steel concussion and pass the hell out.

Dragon takes on guys far more powerful than Collosus regularly, and although he has a tough time with em he wins!

He is the star of his own book thats lasted well over 100 issues and saved the planet time and time again after all.

He is the epitome of the underdog in most of his fights so I suppose I can see why you might think the way you are...
