Marvel vs DC

 my friend said that Marvel was better because of the costumes.

if the outfit makes the superhero, whatever. I just dont seem to be interested in a superhero that is an absolute clone of the one to his left. At least DC introduces new plotlines to each character. and dont start raving about Xmen having the most origional storyline ever. yes, the Xmen story line is amazing, thats my marvel had to tie every other super hero they had to them through the avengers. DC, however has invintive characters whos only problems arent daddy, government, or girlfriend related.

Case and point:
Batman wont kill, but he would save more peoples lives by killing. This problem was created because he doesnt want others to go through the same pain he did.

Green lantern was a pacafist who got drafted into the military for WW2. He killed a man to save his own life after his plane crashed and was then introduced to the Green lanterns. Now, with the constant guilt of betraying his own character, he defends his planet, so others dont have to make the same choice he did.

Flash: hated by the entire world, not because he id anything wrong, but because he could. He defends the people that hate him.

Wonder woman: Cast out of her Amazoness homeland because she was not willing to deal with the death of her sisters in battle. She is introduced into a new world, where instead of being the weakest, she is the strongest and fiercest. She must learn to adapt, and when she goes back home, she has changed so much that she becomes the leader of the island.

Quick run down of Marvel:

Iron man: daddy dies. boohoo. revenge.

Hulk: government screws him up: boohoo. revenge.

Capitan America: Government screws him up. boohoo. revenge.

Fantastic 4: Gamma radiation. Anger. boohoo. conflict

Spiderman: Uncle dies (father). boohoo. revenge

Wolverine: Government screws him up. boohoo. memory loss(which is what makes him so interesting) revenge.


Now lets look at the similarites between the marvel characters and the DC characters (which came first) since apparently marvels powers are SO original and unique.

Without DC, marvel wouldnt have existed. They created the concept of the superhero, and they did it better than anyone after them. period.

  23. They're both good. I have seen a lot better plot lines in DC books, Long Halloween was awesome.

    I'm not convinced you spent as much time on the Marvel list as you did the DC one, though.

    Thanks for the read.
