But hasn't Superman killed a version of death before (some skeletal dragon thing) and Flash beat this aspect of Death in a race.

Can't say it seems to be to be portrayed on the same level as Death of the Endless.

> Black Racer is just another way of seeing death, in this case, he is an AVATAR of death for the New Gods while Death of the Endless is the human concept of death.. same goes for Hades (or Charon as the ferryman) for Amazons, etc... different cultures/races/species have different versions of death but ultimately all are death.

> Death in the DCU is like the DCU concept of heaven, it is subjective to the character (ie. Dr. Mid-nite would go to the Christian version of heaven or an Amazon would go to Elysium or wherever they believe heaven is)

> TMK, Black Racer and Death of the Endless have never met, therefore there should be no reason to say he is a "servant" of Death of the Endless. And in this case neither would win, because killing death would be a paradox within itself.
