I don’t know if this has been asked in this forum before, but I’m genuinely curious about the personal preferences of people here. Even if you enjoy both, do you feel a particular inclination towards one of the big two? And why?
Personally, even though I like Marvel a lot, I always felt more affinity towards the DC characters. I guess their more aspirational, idealistic and mythical nature appeals to me more than the down to Earth, often broken Marvel characters. I truly believe that there’s quite nothing that can top the best, larger than life DC stories when their characters are actually well written. I also liked the sense of legacy the universe had in the 90s and for the better half of the past decade, a thing that helped to differentiate it more from Marvel, but that has sadly been lost for the most part (well, for now, at least).
Funnily enough, Cap is one of my absolute favorite Marvel characters. And he’s probably the most DC of the Marvel heroes.
PD: I don’t want to start a fight over which is the better company. Both have produced good and bad comics over the decades and neither is better than the other. Just having fun!
What kind of comics reader are you?
- I like both companies equally
- I hate comics. Why am I here?[/poll]
