Who Does Cosmic Stories Better? Marvel Comics or DC Comics?

On the Marvel side you've got great stuff like:

  • Adam Warlock & The Infinity Watch
  • Annihilation
  • Captain Marvel
  • The Cosmic Cube
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Infinity Gauntlet & War
  • Nova
  • Quasar
  • Silver Surfer
  • Thanos

But on the DC side you've got some great stuff, too, and many would argue that Green Lantern alone wins it for DC Comics:

  • Adam Strange
  • Blackest Night
  • Captain Comet
  • Crisis on Infinite Earths
  • Darkseid
  • The Darkstars
  • Green Lantern & The GL Corps
  • L.E.G.I.O.N.
  • The Legion of Super-Heroes
  • Lobo
  • The New Gods
  • The Other Lantern Corps (Star Sapphire Corps, Sinestro Corps, Red Lanterns, Blue Lanterns, etc.)

What do you think?

As for major events? It's basically even for me more or less. Currently? They both have dropped the ball.

Yea I would say Marvel used to be better but right now Marvel Cosmic is totally void and with with Loeb being put in charge of it I can only see it getting worse

DC did the greatest cosmic story ever with Crisis on Infinite Earths.  It's still my favorite story to go back and re-read.  However, Marvel has a better cast of cosmic characters.  DC has no one who can top Galactus.

Hmmm..... DC. I enjoy Green Lantern stories.

DC. Green Lantern, Legion, and R.E.B.E.L.S.

DC has no one who can top Galactus.

C.O.I.E Anti Monitor to me tops Galactus 
But anyway, I pick DC solely for the beauty that is The Sinestro Corps War.

I can't call one or the other, even though the Dark Phoenix Saga is my fave story line.

hmmmmm. kinda tough call. I really dig GL stuff from DC (pre-52 relaunch!!!), and Legion of Superheroes, DC does cosmic pretty well, but for some reason I'm leaning more towards Marvel Cosmic. Annihilation, and Conquest were great, I dug the Thanos Imperitive, and the Guardians of the Galaxy (last current one) was cool. Annihilators? sweet. when Fantastic Four do cosmic, it's just plain awesomeness. So, I guess I'm goin with Marvel cosmic for me, but I still love GL stuff and long live the legion!!!!
