Hi friends,today I am going to discuss about the ultimate comic book showdown-DC v Marvel.Marvel and DC are two comic book giants and we have seen fans argue about which company is better.So,let us analyse each aspect and see who wins the age old debate.
All these years,both Marvel and DC produced some high quality comics.Many comic book events like Infinity War,Infinity Gauntlet,Crisis on Infinite Earths,Blackest Night,Flashpoint and many more are top notch.The justice seeking superhero teams-The Avengers and The Justice League are revolutionary concepts.It is fair to call it even for both the sides in this aspect.
DC made some really wonderful films in the name of The Dark Knight trilogy,Watchmen and some other Batman and Superman movies but to be fair it is Marvel all the way.Right since Iron Man hit the screens in 2008,Marvel created an epic cinematic universe which led to blockbusters like The Avengers,Captain America Winter Soldier....you know.DC' s biggest film Batman v Superman will hit the screens in less than a month and it could be a game changer.DC have a wonderful panel for the upcoming 5-6 years and if they get it right,they can give a huge competition to Marvel.But at this point,Marvel has the edge.
Marvel made some cool stuff on TV like Agents of Shield,Agent Carter and epic Netflix Originals like Jessica Jones and their best entry Daredevil(which is brutally epic) .DC made some really awesome TV shows as well.Smallville,Constantine,Supergirl,Gotham even Legends of Tomorrow are hit programs with a wide fanbase.But DC has the edge over Marvel due to two shows-Arrow and The Flash.The Flash is way too good that it can be called as the difference between the sides of the argument.
DC is the clear winner here.Not only they release excellent animated comic book adaptations but also some original works.Animated movies like Justice League:Doom,Flashpoint Paradox,Justice League War(which is a live animation of the first few editions of the New 52 Justice League) and many more prove the quality of DC again and again.Not to forget epic animated series like Batman:The Animated Series,Young Justice,Teen Titans and Justice League Unlimited,which was the childhood of many.Marvel made a few animated works as well,but DC is the clear winner.
Marvel made a few games like Avengers Alliance and many Spiderman games but this is also a clear pick for DC.DC has some mind blowing games like Batman:Arkham Series,Injustice Gods Among Us which are highly acclaimed not only by fans and critics but the general audience as well.Not to forget the Lego games which are really fun and refreshing.Marvel has a lego game but DC has way more.
This is a close one.Both the companies produced a wide range of merchandise including T-Shirts,action figures and many more.It is fair to call it even
BOTH MARVEL AND DC ARE WINNERS.
Yes,you read it right.Traditionally I should call DC as the winner as it won 3-1 in all the six aspects or I should call Marvel as the winner as movies have the widest range.To be frank I am a DC fan,but not a fanboy.I admire the works of both the companies.Both Marvel and DC have contributed a lot to my entertainment,not only entertainment but a lot more,for making me the person I am.I am thankful to both the studios for producing high quality stuff.At the end of the day everyone is a winner.
