Why can't we all get along?

Hello Viners! Oscars94 here.

Welcome to my first blog in which I will talk about the constant fan wars between admirers of Marvel and DC comics. I for one love both companies and their products although I do prefer Marvel overall. In my opinion Marvel create better live-action movies while DC's animated movies are better than Marvel's. Now as you all know SDCC released some exciting news about the many new Superhero Movies that we will see in due time. Marvel-based movies that were teased included: Ant-Man,Guardians Of The Galaxy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-men:Days Of Future Past, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age Of Ultron. DC's executives announced that a Batman/Superman movie was in the works. They also announced that none other than the Flash would have a solo movie! All of these movie announcements made me nerd all over the floor, I just love watching these kinds of movies!

However, I really hate when fanboys try to ruin the experience by degrading other people's fandoms by claiming their's is superior (I don't like that word anymore). This is evident regarding Marvel and DC fans. Whether its in the Battle Forums, people say "She ROFL STOMPS" and "He HANZ ZIMMER FLOMPS!" but they're giving no explanation as to why their character would win the battle. Some people also complain when their character "jobs" and wonder why they don't one-shot their enemies. I'll tell you, because that would be boring! I love the characters for their journeys and interaction with other characters. Their powers and abilities are cool ,but how they perceive themselves and others is also very important.

On a final note, my favourite movies from these two companies are Marvel's The Avengers and DC's Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.

Which do you prefer? Marvel or DC? What;s your favourite comicbook-themed movie?

Thanks for reading.
