I personally prefer the DC comics because of Batman and V.

Marvel just has a bunch of mutants.

Marvel had the civil war.

DC is to prancy for me, too many of the characters are good goody perfects. Batman and a few others being an exception. They are still good comics, but I prefer marvel.

Marvel was really the first to do a lot of things, like give characters regular, average joe problems, making the identity of a superhero (4 super heroes, in fact) public knowledge, and also the first to have real teamwork, not just batman and robin style "Hand my my batarang, boy wonder!" shit.

Also, I find Marvels reccurring characters more endeering. Superman is an overrated bitch of a character, far too straightforward and generic. The only reason he is so popular is that he was the first real comic book superhero.

Now, DC has a few characters that have really evolved and matured, namely Batman, and they also have published some of the best graphic novels and anarchic comic book series in history. For instance, V for Vendetta, Hellblazer, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen are some of the best comiics/graphic novels i've read in ages.

Your list is missing one other major key player, though: Image. Image published Sin City, 300, The Walking Dead, Spawn, and several other incredible graphic novels and comic books. They may not have the fame and fortune of Marvel and DC, but they're still big.

Darkhorse also, if you want to count star wars.

True, but dark horse is pretty small these days, unlike back in the early 90's.

DC. Mainly because of the Sandman series and V for Vendetta.

DC did originally have the watchmen, though, and thats a big one for me.

I like Marvel more because it was the first Comic Book brand I read. DC has some pretty repeative characters. Marvel is full of mutants. And some people confuse that Batman is a super human, he dosen't have any super powers, he's a plain human. Plus, Marvel is more popular then DC at the time, due to the fact that they are releaseing more Movies and stuff.

I gotta say marvel, since my favorite character is marval.

07-24-2008, 05:24 PM
I'll go onto Marvel because the stories are better and they doesn't involve always kicking and screaming. I also like it because of Iron Man.

I hate Hulk tough.
I love Joker tough.

No "both" option?

08-08-2008, 12:50 AM
DC. Purely because they put out Sandman.

08-08-2008, 01:34 AM
I think Marvel is nothing more than a bunch of people with extremely big muscles. Like dbz.

DC has some different characters, and Marvel just has the same type of person all the time.
