Maybe the Defenders could cameo too?

And Namor is arm wrestling Arthur for the right to be called 'Prince of Atlantis', sure.

If he tried Darkside would crush him like an ant.

^But it would only be a Doombot so that would be ok. In point of fact I dont even think there is a real Doom anymore, he died in the explosion back in college. Richards after turning his family into freaks created the Doom persona in robot form to make his family look like heroes.

Could the Beyonder possess people or almost suck the entire multiverse into some kind of black hole thing.

Not to mention Doom would have to actually get to him first which means going through his gauntlet of minions.

I would think Doom is smart enough to know that going after a power than for all we know would kill him anyway that he has to fight the god of evil to get wouldn't be a good idea.

Just like if Darkside kicked Thantos's ass it would be a clone.

At least Darkside would have the balls to admit he got his ass kicked.

And also when comparing a Marvel villain to Darkside ask yourself one question.

How many of them are the deity of their own freakin religion?

^Thanos is. He's also an avatar Death.

p.s. He's immortal because Death will not allow him in her realm.

No, Marvel's Thanos is not an avatar of Death, just a fanboy of Death.

A fanboy Death keeps rejecting.

Maybe he'd have better luck with Vertigo's Goth Death? Like after he kills Darkseid and takes over Apokolips?

That's one hell of a restraining order.

Same thing happened to Lobo, he caused so much havoc in Hell that he got kicked out and isn't allowed back in. So he can't die, really.

From your link:

wikipedia wrote:
A cocoon protected by the Universal Church of Truth is revealed to be hiding Thanos, who has been chosen by Oblivion to be the new Avatar of Death.
In a nutshell: during the Thanos Imperative he was resurrected (per Death/Oblivion) to act as her avatar against the forces of life from the "Cancerverse".

Re: Let's say Marvel and DC were to merge universes.

I think that's misusing the word "avatar," though. An avatar isn't a separate being acting as an agent of a deity -- it's the actual deity incarnated in a corporeal form. So you can't become the avatar a god if you had a previous existence as a mortal. At best, I suppose the deity could possess you, but that's still fudging the definition.

You think immortality mean crap to Darkseid, he'll just teleport him to some crappy universe, seriously one of his powers is lazer beams that do whatever to hell he wants them to.

I mean seriously Darkseid is a guy for whom death is an inconvenience for at best.
