    It would have to be DC, mainly because i have a major thing for Batman and seriously it's more of an addiction but i was reading this comparison thing in Total Film magazine where it was comparing both Marvel and DC films, both had amazing point for both sides but as much as i love Marvel, DC kinda has it beat for me anyway! :)

    DC has Batman, Aquaman, Green Lantern. WHo I all love but Marvel has all of my old favorites. So really I am impartial.

    It's one of the debates you can argue for both sides but you'll never have a one side view to it they should join forces and become invincible lol

    Nah. Most of the crossovers suck. I'd like to see a daredevil and joker crossover.

    Not everything with the joker, he does get overused sometimes.

    My favourite subject to debate. Basically neither. I have really big issues with the comic industry, especially with these two companies.

    It mostly comes down to social issues, and how so many isms (whether they be intentional or not) undermine the industry.

    If I have to choose then DC, but only because they’re marginally better with dealing with this kind of stuff at the moment.

    I like different parts of each. I think the movie Marvel makes do a lot better than DCs, hands down. I mean, most of the DC related movies I like.

    I like the characters, and art in general, that DC produces as opposed to Marvel. I like the fact that it's not based in New York or anything. I like how they've made their own cities and such.

    And DC villains, in my mind, are a lot better than Marvel.

    After watching the Avengers I started wondering why they don't just join forces and become one company. I don't mean combine the characters, I just mean the companies. Like, still have the separate groups. Does that make sense?

    I think it's just one of those things you can debate forever on.

    DC and Marvel own 80% of the comic book world respectfully. It wouldn't take much for everything to go downhill from there.

    I grew up on Marvel superheroes so a lot of them are my favorite but I still really like DC>

    That and DC isn't that great with social issues inside the company, the editors mess with the writers and then everything gets confusing and thats why we've had two Crisis's in the last decade alone.

    ^In the defence of the editors, the creative staff are just as bad a lot of the time Shifty

    But yes I agree DC are generally confused about... everything these days. Like I love how one creator will say Steph Brown was a Robin but another claims she wasn't, or that masterminds behind the relaunch still haven't decided if Final Crisis is still canon in their new universe Facepalm

    We had a reboot for that. the history was too confusing for the writers fortunately other than screwing up Superman, Superboy, Teen Titans, two Batman titles, and the six others that got canceled last month it has been a very good turn out.. And I don't even know what the heck Final Crisis or Crisis on Infinite Earths was about. Really those were confusing.

    The crisis's weren't meant to make sense. They were just precursors for Flashpoint and the current reboot.

    Crisis on Infinite Earths was the 1980s attempt at the reboot, essentially. It was a way to push Barry Allen out of the universe, along with allowing DC to reimagine some characters, such as Jason Todd (he was originally a little ginger acrobat, but came back as... a dark headed juvenile delinquent.

    Zero Hour and Infinite Crisis were the 1990s/2000s attempt to again reboot the universe. They succeeded in some aspects. At least, they found reasons to kill characters like Ted Kord who they wanted gone.

    Final Crisis was a further attempt. The problem was it written by Morrison, and though he's arguably the best writer for setting up a story and pleasing readers, his conclusions are known for being messy.

    But the current reboot really hasn't been successful in terms of clearing up history. Geoff Johns and Dan DiDio achieved the reboot the company had been working on for twenty five years but its a mess. In fact I'd argue its a bigger mess than it was before.

    Nobody seems sure if Stephanie Brown was a Robin or Batgirl, nobody knows Jason Todd's full backstory (which is more confusing than it ever was), Starfire's origin is a mess, Wonder Woman's history has been torn to shreds, there's lots of questions as to Barbara Gordon's time as Oracle, they keep changing their minds as to whether or not Ted Kord existed, some writers and editors claim Batman died at the hands of Darksied so Dick became Batman while others contradict that, Wally West VANISHED with no explanation...

    There are too many holes in this new universe, and really its as confusing as it ever was. Actually its more confusing than it ever has been.

    If you take it what it is which is a reboot of the history to a point that we aren't sure of allowing for new creative liberties and new stories previously unwritable due to continuity issues or stories that you had to read the last ten years of comics to get whats going on in the story. FOr example Blackest Night is my favorite Green Lantern story of all time, but I had to read nearly everything since the 80's in order to understand what was going on. Besides we are only 9 issues in. And if we remember comics are famous for pulling things out of their ass. Like the explanation of Superman being beaten to death and then "he just got better", we should just wait for everything to be explained to the best of their abilities, As for Grant Morrison I barely understand half the things he writes, I love his stuff but things like Final Crisis or Arkham Asylum a Serious House on a Serious Earth was either so trippy or confusing I didn't get a chance to enjoy what was going on.

    I much prefer DC. I love Marvel films, but DC comics and graphics appeal to me more.

    Just re-read a graphic novel, it was something like "Tales from the Asylum" and it had the cutest Joker/Harley story in it tehe

    I think that's one of the reasons I love the relationship, because he treats her like crap and she lets him. I just got a Gotham City Sirens book though where Ivy and Selena are keeping Harley away from him and it's pretty damn awesome.
