Who's Better....Marvel or DC?
« on: January 06, 2010, 07:04:42 PM »
Hawkeye from the old west coast avengers or Green Arrow
Tigra from the old west coast avengers or Vixen
Powerman and Ironfist or Hawk and Dove
Dr. Strange or Dr. Fate.....
I say Marvel wipes the floor with any DC Hero, anyone. What do you think?

Welcome mann to CVG :thumbsup: and to answer your question, I think Marvel whoops DC but then again, I think Image whoops them both. W(- -)W :watchmen:

As far as the choices of characters, I can't comment as I don't like any of them. My choices are Spawn, Pitt and Savage Dragon.  W00T LOL

The only thing Image seems to have going for it is Invincible, in my opinion.

I can't really pick one company as the best. Marvel has Spider-Man, Wolverine, Thor, Hulk and so many others who are all classic and should be undefeatable. But compare them to icons like Superman, Green Lantern, Captain Marvel...

I'm glad we get to read from both companies. If you compare like to like...

Superman would find a way to beat Thor.
Hulk would beat Captain Marvel.
Wolverine would beat Batman, as would Captain America.
Green Lantern, however would probably beat almost everyone who comes his way. I think only Dr. Strange could really beat him, or someone like Hulk if he can land a solid hit. Thor would probably also give him a major run for his money and ultimately prevail.
When it comes to "filler" heroes... it's based on preference.
Namor would beat Aquaman. He's stronger...
Wonder Woman would beat She Hulk, any virtually every other Marvel female hero.
It's too random.

I'm afraid I dislike Image greatly. It could be because Todd McFarlane's ego is too much for me to handle. Or it could be that I just don't care for what they publish. However, I do enjoy reading Savage Dragon. And Invincible. Spawn, to me is unreadable. After 100 issues of the same boring story, I couldn't take it anymore.

I side with Marvel- except I think Vixen is pretty cool.
The truth is out there, we're just too lazy to think about it.

I think most of the statements here are wrong pretty much. Like wonder woman beating every female marvel hero. There are some pretty uber marvel chicks. Especially Jean Grey and Rogue. elemental powers like Magma and Storm can bring destruction if they dont keep their powers tame. Kiddy Pride can ruin the reality if she losses control of her ability. Thusly being cause the effect that happens. rather than her moving her body through or around the earth the earth polarizes around her.

I think as long as Indestructible DC characters are around. Which is usually Wonder Woman and Superman they can stand a chance. Marvel characters dont usually over extend their powers unless evil so they can be knocked out.

Anyhow they already have a DC vs marvel comic. I know that superman beat hulk by wit. Hulk was stupid at the time. He kinda still is but in some scenerios hes not now. If I can get a pic, I will show you the cover.

I dunno.




Superman's can hold a black hole in his hand.... That diffies the laws of physics...

Anyway, I must say that I like most series, though I do have a kind of lean on DC, mostly cause Marvel just went down hill with all that crap like "Marvel Zombies" or that new Deadpool Series, which Although I read, kinda don't like to much.

Lol. As I said indestructible. Here is the one I have:



I still say none are better than the other. You gotta have a little of both. Or find your favorite character. Or Writer/Artist cause they do switch between the 2 companies and others. You may think that green lantern comic was great but he wrote or drew wolverine comics before.

 LOL

Cool, do you have the spiderman/Batman Crossover?

With Carnage and The Joker?

The Only Reason I don't like Marvel as much is, from what I've read, stopped having a plot and started just making violence and Comedy. (Which don't get me wrong, I like Violence and Comedies, just a good story is nice aswell.)

Last thing I read from Marvel I liked was Captian America Vol. 5.

The main reason I liked Marvel so much as a kid is bc Marvel in the early 90's used the comics to sell action figures and promote thier animated series (both of which I loved then LOL)

I always quote Alex when someone says that Superman is a lame superhero...

"When you say Superman is a boring, bland hero, that's like saying the New Testament is a boring, lame story" LOL nuff said..whatever you believe, you have to admit it's an epic story...

i think people severely underrate DC simply because of some of the character's personalities. i like them both but i still see no way that Batman would lose to wolverine.

speaking of those matchups:
Green Arrow
Tigra
Powerman/Iron Fist
Dr. Fate

Batman could take down the hulk without breaking a sweat...you know he would just build something to trap him...of course it seems like nothing could hold the hulk now...

That's the difference between Marvel and DC...Over the years Marvel keeps increasing it's characters powers (a la hulk) and DC has decreased them (superman namely)

Violence and comedy?
Well every plot line is mainly a genre. Marvel includes everything. Action, Comedy, Suspense, Drama, etc.
Its an all around thing like anime. In which anime has become a model for most American cartoons.

DC only includes a few genres into the mix. This is better for Grownups looking for something specific and serious. Batman is more like a mystery and suspense or action depending. Sure they throw in a bit of comedy and I dont mean WB cause they are modeled for kids. Superman is Drama and action or suspense. Most of the drama is smallville though. Another WB show.

Marvel is on a set plotline for the main comics X-Men, Fantastic 4, Iron Man, etc, then they modify and add.
DC is on a set storyline for the beginning of the plot then they make short stories of the events of the hero. Superman the Movie, Smallville, Superman Classic, Superman TAS, are all like this. But I think Superman has points when events have to happen like Doomsday or The Return of Superman.

You need both. Marvel and DC are one in the same.

I never said I disliked marvel, in fact, marvel is what got into comics.

(Specificly Deadpool, written by Joe Kelly.) But recently, Deadpool has gone way downhill IMO.

It's just that I haven't found anything that marvel has made that made me want to read it.

I'm not sure If I can phrase it without making it sound like I don't like marvel, cause I really do like marvel.

I gotta say DC ownes the market on writers translating to film, and literature though. Guys like Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Brad Meltzer, Geoff Johns, David Goyer who call DC their home the vast majority of time have had more critical acclaim by far. Gaiman even won the HP Lovecraft award for Science Fiction writing, and was the only Comic Author to ever do so. Meltzer who is an aqaintance of mine is a #1 best selling author as well.

Does that appeal to kids? No but it's that serious adult side that makes DC great.

I myself dont read Marvel even though Bendis is a an Ohio hometown hero. To me he's like Marilyn Manson. Just too over exposed.
