Subj: I think in this case, Marvel beat peoples over the head with the Thanos retcons

...but I perceive a difference in how easily the retcons get swallowed on both side. 

Otherwise, I can't explain the threads we have on this very page since without retcons, Thanos has some pretty lame stuff and with retcons on both sides they end-up being 2 faces of a same coin.

and the DC retcons are less obvious and less well known, in part because I think this board has more people who read more Marvel titles, but also the level of protection Starlin has shown for Thanos is hard to ignore.

The Desaad retcon is easy to miss.  The avatars retcon is kind of meaningless, because if you're always dealing with avatars, then we're always dealing with avatars, so thats what we deal with.......

I will say that in many cases, I have a hard time keeping track of when events happened, did something happen before or after a retcon...but Darkseid has enough showings that put him at least in striking distance or imply he's within striking distance of DC top tiers that are before and after the Desaad showing as to make it kind of a moot point IMO.
