Hey in the recent issue of thanos i saw some scenes that reminded me of the infamous darkseid tripping and mugging scans

I will post them both below, let me know your thoughts on them

Thanos tripping over a rock

Thanos was depowered by the dark Phoenix who had Lady Death by his side. Thats just Darkseid lol

@kgb725: lol I know , wanted to see if people thought it was deliberately done to appear similar to those darkseid scans , thanos is also dying and has an infection in his arm, this is due to his greatly decreased durability as a giant space rat bit him and drew blood

On a side note he did survive another Blackhole

There is a definite parallel to be drawn between the muggings of the two.

But I have to say I never got why people were so up in arms over Darkseid misplacing his steps on a stair. Like he does move around by putting one foot in front of the other and we for once just saw him stumbling... it's not like all the power in the world would save him from that. Likewise he (presumably) also goes to the bathroom once in a while, does his number two and then realizes there's no toilet paper.

Same thing with Thanos... since all the might in the universe apparently hasn't given him a foolproof digestive system or made him a good field cook (he does take a bite of that huge rat that attacked him, goes to sleep and wakes up only to vomit).

@outside_85: yeah exactly, definitely parraels for sure, I think its because its comical and makes a fool out of him , ofourse people trip but what does it add to the comic unless its to add context

I actually didnt notice thanos vomiting after eating the rat until I read your comment, thanks :) good find

@firsthunter: I thought that as well , do you think these two instances were deliberately similar and meant to echo the earlier darkseid scenes ?

Wonder how a weakened/depowered thanos respect thread would be received

Any one have any thoughts on that?
