This trailer looks brilliant, I'm definitely going to see this in cinemas. I just hope the movie lives up to its hype and expectations.

In my view, Robert Downey Jr is the perfect Tony Stark. He fits the role perfectly and has helped increase the popularity of Iron-Man amongst audiences who have never even read a comic book. Definitely better.

Batman & Wolverine

This right about hits the nail on the head for me.

Even though before I read that these specific comic book titles were being cancelled I couldn't of cared less about them, I do genuinely feel sorry for comic book fans of those titles, I would hate to have one of my favourite titles cancelled.

And all this talk about DC bringing more Batman and JL titles better be baloney, I don't think we need X amount of comic book series about, or linked, to the same character/team. I, personally, think that's the wrong way to go about it but meh, not my decision.

This looks brilliant, chances are I won't have a chance to get this when it comes out but it's nice to have a preview. I'm looking forward to this series.

Oh, and newbie question here, why would Hulk need armor? He's Hulk for goodness sake. And I'm happy Captain America has his knee pads, I wouldn't want him to graze his knee during battle and get a bobo.

Nice picks, I thought Superboy issue 20 would also make an appearance, I really enjoyed the cover.

Superboy #20

Marvel has Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, and the Hulks. Whereas DC has Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

Each of Marvel's superheros has one, two, or, in extreme cases, three super powers. Spider-Man has his spider sense and wall crawling and super strength & agility, Wolverine has claws and a healing factor, and if you don't know what the Hulk's power is, you shouldn't even be on here.

Whereas one specific DC superhero caught my eye on this issue. Superman. These are the powers (that I know of) of Superman: flight, super strength, invulnerability, super speed, x-ray vision, super hearing, super intelligence and breath that can not only freeze your bollocks off, but also blow them half way round the world afterwards.

The best characters are characters we can empathize with, meaning they have problems like us: Spider-Man has several issues with girls, Betty Ross' dad doesn't like Banner (to an extreme level), the X-Men are outcasts of society, Tony Stark has a brain tumor, and Hank Pym and Jan Van Dyne have marital problems.

Whereas Superman seems to be able to pretty much do whatever the hell he wants. He has no problems people can relate to. Remember last time a bald guy kidnapped your girlfriend? I doubt it. The last time someone came at you with a chunk of Kryptonite? Even more so.

While there are similar character types over the two universes (Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark), there are no similar characters as a whole, as the majority of DC characters have outlandish problems like "The Joker just blew up the hospital!", and Marvel characters have problems like "MJ just had a miscarriage.", which, unfortunately, quite a few people can relate to, although, to be fair, if you can relate to "The Joker just blew up the hospital!", your life is either the most amazing or terrible there is.

This post is incredibly ignorant and biased.

Not surprised considering his username is marvel fanboy (01) so not much you could expect apart from a biased post. To be honest, it is all a question of taste and it depends on peoples opinions and tastes in what they like to see in comics. I find it slightly difficult to accurately point out the major differences between DC and Marvel apart from their different characters (which is to be expected), but this is just me.

Has to be Dick Grayson for me, the first Robin and his current series isn't half bad.

New Guardians is a definite must for me. Enough said.

Common sense....just a bit and I'd be a happy kid.
