How do the omega beams come into play here? Wont they make this a stomp in darkseids favor?
It's based on Wonder Womans claim that her blades can cut atoms, we will find out if this is hyperbole or not in her fight against 52 Doomsday, if she is able to cut him with ease (most likely regenerate considering it's his first appearance) then that would give DS an obscene durability feat. That blade to the eye with little effect although I will there is a chance the Geoff wasn't aware it was suppose to do that.
So could the sword Hercules was sporting while depowered - doesn't mean he can do jack to Gorr.
He took over Earth in a way that's never been done in Marvel or DC and not been hand-waved away as if it never happened.
He never took over the Earth - just annihilated its pantheons short of Thor. What destruction we see from Old King Thor's time-line is unexplained and if I had to guess probably has something to do with whatever Odin is up to in Asgard since that particular moment was high-lighted by the writer after the God-Bomb arc.
Gorr and H'el seem to be the two flavor of the month characters right now.
Every character is a flavor of the month for all year. No matter how many Gorr threads we see, its not going to add up to the random match-ups featuring someone like Superman within said month.
Gorr beats gods but do we ever actually see him beat the gods and how he does it? Can't gods just wipe Gorr out of existence? If they can't then that means they aren't very powerful to begin with. The Odinforce would wipe Gorr out of existence, clearly whatever Old Thor is weilding is not as strong as the Odinforce. Don't tell me beating old Thor is a feat because old Thor has no feats. Omega Beams give DS the win as long as it is real DS, the only two people who can survive a real Omega Beam are Superman and Doomsday.
I would have to say most definitely Gorr. He is an excellent new character but it's obviously the necrosword that does the business. I am happy to accept off panel exposition and use basic logic to assume he wiped out and enslaved pretty much every god.
DS could be a beast, but while he can be beaten endlessly by Superman it restricts his level to just 'potential'. And omega beams are just a tool for providing feats for others. If they were that good then NO ONE would survive them...they are a handy plot mechanic.
But as a side point I would be interested to see what will happen to Galactus now he has been infected with the necrosword. That would be immense.
Gorr has killed Elder Gods before, some of the most powerful beings in all of the Marvel universe. He's manipulated entire stars in battle, he's taken a full blast from the Odinforce-at least equal to the Omega Effect in terms of raw power, if not far greater-and it was only able to phase him for a few moments. He was taking on Thor with absolute ease and he's got just as much battle experience as Darkseid, especially at killing gods.
I've gotta say Gor wins 7/10
@tomofukuoka: I'm not sure what you mean by now. Gorr defeated a Skyfather level Thor multiple times and even his contructs were capable of overwhelming him by themselves. He had also wiped out thousands upon thousands of pantheons which would quite naturally include quite a few sky fathers seeing as that's what skyfathers are(rulers of pantheons). Gorr is above skyfather level without question. OKT is pretty much at the top of that tier and Gorr could beat him 1 on 1.
Hasn't the New 52 Darkseid been killing Supermens across the multiverse? To make of course this Frankenstein Superman. Plus he took a magical trident to the chest and was barely unaffect. Plus two magical weapons in the eyes and was still standing. The only way he was beaten was being sent home. I know Gorr is a God killing hence his name, but honestly I don't see him as powerful as Darkseid. Darkseid is one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe, and he's proven it. I wouldn't say stomp, but Darkseid wins.
I also give both rounds to Darkseid because in in the N52 he has faced a recent team of Jl and has proven more of a match. In Round two, even if Gorr can 'kill' Darkseid, he will come back. Reason; No one like Gorr can kill him. He may be the God Killer. But Darkseid is protected by the Source, the Spectre couldn't even kill him. Only Radion, and I suppose Orion can kill him. Darkseid wins, not in a stomp though.
