Im going to start off by saying I do like marvel, its home to one of my favorite villains Dr Doom and one of my favorite superheroes the punisher and captain america, however The general public pretty much accepts that marvel is more realistic and has more relatable characters than dc. At first I agreed, but then I actually did the one thing that most people who make these claims dont do, I picked up a DC comic !! I mean seriously I find this laughable, last time I checked radiation gives you cancer ( im looking at you hulk and spiderman !!) Most people argue that peter parker is the most relatable characters in comics, 0__0, im sorry to all spiderman fans I do like the web crawler but he lost all relatabily when he stopped being a nerd and 2 superhot woman are throwing themselves at him, and he STILL complains about his problems?! I work 2 jobs to help my family with the mortgage while still trying to balance school, peter you have no right to complain. Alot of people say to me" well marvel is better than dc because they have more real characters" then I reply, really ? the same marvel that has the silver surfer, galactus, thanos, sentry, nova, thor (need I go on ?) The only difference between the "releasim" is that dc doesn't lie to you and say our universe is your universe. Its a SUPERHERO universe you cant make it relatable and marvel tries too hard at this and take themselves WAY too seriously. Aswell as most of the dc superheroes are actually heroes most of the marvel cast are just douchebags with powers, the dc characters go through the same problems as the marvel heroes except the only difference is that the marvel heroes complain more than the dc heroes. I also honeslty relate more to the dc heroes than the marvel heroes example green arrow and static shock. Okay fine marvel was better in the begging however in the last 20 years DC has REALLY stepped up their game, I mean they have released far better books than marvel, all star superman and batman, brightest day, blackest night, flashpoint, green arrow year one, batman dark victory, the long halloween, world without superman, swamp thing, practically all of the hellblazer(yes Constantine is an original dc character) and many more, im not trying to start a flame war I do like marvel however honestly for people who read both do you agree or not agree ?
