    But the true Darkseid is some sort of abstract-level being, an embodiment of evil or somesuch. I don't believe Trigon has any feats that allows him to do anything permanent to such a being.
    God that is such a stupid retcon. Makes Darkseid look like he is completely insane too when you consider the fact that at one point he had a conversation with a previous version of himself before blasting said version into oblivion. By making all the versions of Darkseid out to be Avatars of the same entity that more or less made that incident out to be Darkseid just playing around with his toys/avatars, or outright insane and talking to himself. It's like the writers didn't have a clue of the ramifications of such a retcon would have on previous events.

    How are they out of context?

    One has to have feats to compare the characters

    Yeah, I hate it too. Then I think about how disappointed Darkseid Prime must be in his avatars.

    Darkseid Prime: Go forth my mini-mes! Take over all realities! Crush the concept of free will under your boot! Enslave those that dare to stand up to me! For Darkseid Is!

    *some relative time later*

    Darkseid Prime: It seems as though most of my mini-mes are getting their asses handed to them. Quite regularly. And a concerning number of them are fond of sitting on couches or hiding out in barns. I wonder what this says about me.

    Sure, Trigon may look like David Bowie cosplaying as Emma Frost, but at least he sometimes changes the color of his loincloth.

    Yeah, but Dormammu considers everyone to be a poser and will cheerfully tell them so to their potentially omnipotent face, so Trigon shouldn't feel too bad about it.

    You can use feats.

    You just need to post them. And put them in context. Respect threads don't - they're a mishmash of stuff, including things that are temporary powerups that aren't otherwise noted, elseworlds, and other things that are questionable when viewed in context.

    Well sure.

    But Trigon pouts a lot, so I'm expecting to feel rather cut-down when the Dorm rattles off some horrible crack about his clothes. His sarcasm can be awfully biting at times.

    I’ve rarely seen anyone here post scans let alone an issue number etc.

    They have a beer and discuss their lousy kids who give them no respect and screw up. They probably discuss how they are going to pay for college tuition and car insurance.

    I'm pretty sure Darkseid's answer to both of those things is Parademons. Just like most of his problems.

    I almost always post issue numbers with my scans if it becomes more of a debate than a discussion. Comparatively speaking, I'm fairly new though. Most of the folks I see here are long time veterans with pretty good reputations and are pretty well trusted.

    Darkseid Prime: There's one that works at McDonalds, what happened there? And why is that one voiced by Weird Al Yankovic? Why am I the one feeling the most despair from my army of mini-mes?

    It's perfectly reasonable to ask for such things if you would like them in support of an argument.

    General board culture is that scans don't come out unless it's in support of a specific point of contention over the specifics of a scene or the capacities of a character.
