    I do know. But it needs first to prove the author wrong to be used.

    If we put Death of the Author clause on all media, why even ask the author for what he means on something.

    For example: Sam Sisavath, the author of Hunter/Prey arguing for the Darkseid that appears as being the real Darkseid even though it would not make any sense as the true Darkseid resides in his own unique dimension. And its true form is heavier and more powerful than the multiverse.

    So far there is no indication for the Russo's words to not be taken in account.

    That’s not what Death of the Author is for. It means that WoG isn’t more valid than a typical person’s interpretation.

    It’s a reminder that WoG isn’t the end-all-be-all when it comes to said piece of work.

    The reason why you ask the author about certain aspects of his work to be clarified is because said work seemed to be somewhat ambiguous to begin with. The work of art falls victim to said ambiguity and thus it can be interpreted in different ways.

    Authors exclaiming and “clarifying” their work helps grant weight to one interpretation over the other. However, unless the author makes a follow up to said work and demonstrates the actual evidence, it’s still their interpretation at the end of the day.

    Take, for example, the Dr. Strange time zone feat. Nobody seems to agree wether or not it was a FTL feat or a hax feat. And even supplementary material and WoG’s “clarifications” were also up to interpretation, because they use such ambiguous language.

    If we accepted all WoG, we'd have to accept Wildbow randomly making shit up on reddit threads to make Worm unbeatable

    They argue that Dorm and Sutur are weaker than Base Thanos, don’t they? Despite the fact that Doctor Strange, Captain America (w/ Mjolnir) and IW Iron Man all fought pretty well against Thanos with Four Infinity Stones, while guys like Dormammu solo’d Dr Strange like it was his job.

    Didn't Dan Jurgens write Hunter/Prey?

    Yeah. Confused him with another work of the same title.

    About as much as Thanos fight them one on one. If you dont forget. Thanos was beating them even when they were fighting him as a group.

    Also, it can be argued Dr Strange was not just inexperienced but not trying to fight him. Shit. We even see Dormammu having to work a little to destroy his defense. It is also argued by the Russo in IW he was not trying to kill anyone but leave everything at random for the snap.

    Sure. But in this case we are arguing about the final boss of phase 4 which by feats he is more powerful than every main villain. Stated by the Russo and shown how easy he was beating everyone.

    Which Dr Strange feat?

    I’m not sure what you’re saying

    how does thanos without the gauntlet beat dormmamu ? by punching him

    without the time stone I still don’t see it based strictly on feats

    everything he showed in infinity war would get absorbed or straight up tanked due to sheer mass and size

    hypothetical thanos using the gauntlet how we assume he should’ve is the only one beating god tiers

    Without the Gauntlet, as far as we can tell jumping him Hulk style and cleaving his sword into his big head or just throwing it to him.

    As far as we know, Dormammu's treat results in him being able to absorb planets without oposition. He had to pump up his game to kill Dr Strange. We cannot argue it to be enough to kill Thanos.

    With the stones he becomes less of a treat when Thanos can literally do the same to him as he did to the moon.

    Nah. It’s funny how you mention Strange somewhat defending against Dormammu before he got stomped, despite Dr Strange giving Thanos more of an impressive fight while he had all 4 stones and he wasn’t using his own.

    It’s not. Dormammu was more impressive and so was Sutur. Thanos is only as impressive when he has all the stones. It’s that simple.
