Doom vs Loki vs Thanos
each has complete knowledge of the others and each has been tasked with the job of killing the others. they have 1 month to prepare. at the end of the month they are placed in an unbreakable, planet sized dome. inside this dome, thanos CAN die if they can figure out a way to kill him.
anything they have done or used on-panel save the IG and the beyonder's power is available to them in this battle if it can be argued they can retrieve said power in 1 month.
TBH, outside of when he acquired the IG and THOTI, I can't think of any Thanos prep feats that Loki/Doom couldn't replicate or outright trump. He weakened Odin, but that was over time and via the use of a clone. He prepped to take down Omega, but also had outside help.
Personally, I'd take Doom for a majority (with Loki taking some wins as well). Taking an unfinished replication of the Destroyer armor and wrecking Thor with it is some badass shit. Thanos is the strongest on the field, but prep-wise, under his own power, I think Loki and Doom are above him.
Well, Doom is an incredibly accomplished sorcerer - as of now, he's more learned in the mystic arts (at least when it comes black magic and the like) than Strange is and is easily one of Earth's most powerful mages currently. Scientifically, he more than speaks for himself.
In any case, when it comes to prep, both Doom and Loki > Thanos.
What is this based on exactly that Doom is greater than Thanos in prep? In Fact, they have both gone against eachother to acquire artifacts and Thanos has always come out on top. They are relative equals when it comes to prep... difference is.. Thanos is clearly and by a wide margin more powerful than Doom or Loki. That means, Thanos takes this.
