Versus: Companies

Welcome to a special edition of Versus. My writing partner, Matticus, has issued a challenge to the blog-o-sphere. He wants us all to take sides in the DC vs. Marvel debate. I have already given my answer to this topic on a couple of different occasions on this blog, but I will do so again for his benefit.

Also, be sure to stop by the Kingdom to view his challenge (along with all of the other awesomeness he has going on over there.

While there are many good things about DC comics, I have to go with Marvel. I do this for a number of reasons.

  1. Marvel characters are more relatable. I don’t know what it’s like to be an alien with godlike powers (Superman), or a billionaire that experienced tragedy (Batman). I do, however, know what it’s like to be a picked on teenager (Spiderman).
  2. DC has way too many alternate universes. I know Marvel has some alternate universes, and different versions of the future, but not nearly to the extent that DC does. It seems like every other story in DC has something to do with alternate universes.
  3. Finally, for whatever the reason is, I just couldn’t get into many DC books. In truth, the only DC book that I liked enough to read on a regular basis was Nightwing. I think the only reason I like him so much is that he is a character I can relate to. Maybe it’s just a combination of my first two reasons, but I just never got that interested in any of the other DC books.


Well, there you have it, folks. I’m a Marvel guy. I hope this helps add to the debate over in the Kingdom. Let the war continue!!!!!!!!!!!

    Your Marvel support has been noted by the official tally taker. And, Go Team Marvel!!
    It does seem that the Marvel characters are more relatable. Though, there are still some that are a bit out there… Tony Stark, Bruce Banner… Geniuses, with minds and (specifically Stark) resources above and beyond anything we would ever know. As a whole though, I completely agree.

  2. I’m trying to think of some sort of sports rally cry. Olé. Olé, olé, olé.

    Go team Marvel!

    What war? It’s obvious who’s going to win. The other side should cut its losses and call off the whole thing.

  4. Definitely Team Marvel! where’d I leave them pompoms, hm…

  5. J. Milburn says:

    Team Marvel all the way! I think we’ll win since we have royal backing. Though the other side does have a dinosaur…
    Still, Marvel’s the clear winner!

  6. NotAPunkRocker says:

    We’ll agree to disagree, but nice to see some love for Nightwing.

    I like both companies equally, but nice work for marvel, True Believer!
