I would have to say DC, personally, and stricly speaking, comics.

I like what they've done with the new 52, and I like how they've made many of these new books accessible to everyone and they can jump right in. And for me, the DC heroes are the most iconic and what I grew up with. Even before the New 52, certain books have always been solid, like Batman and GL, and I've been following Jim Lee since his Marvel days, so maybe I'm a bit biased.

My issue with Marvel, comics-wise, is they refuse to ever change their continuity, so if you stopped reading Marvel for a while (like I did), and then come back to it (like I did), you kind of have NO idea whats going on unless you do some back reading (like I did).

While I will agree with most that DC is kinda screwing with their continuity too much, it makes it easier for new people, you can kind of just forget about it and just enjoy the book your reading. And by "de-aging" their characters, they're really trying to push this to new readers and make it more accessible for the people that didn't grow up with the cartoon shows or when comics were more prevalent.

Maybe with Marvel NOW and the approach they are taking with this relaunch will get me to jump in. I read AvX, and picked up a few of the new #1's (All New X-Men being one), and looking forward to Superior Spider-man, but my DC books always outweigh my Marvel ones.

Now if we were talking movies, Marvel, all the way overall. Best superhero trilogy - Dark Knight (until the marvel movies get to trilogies I guess, )Cartoons - split between the 2. My fav cartoons as a kid were spiderman, xmen, batman:tas, and the superman animated series.
PS3-currently playing:NFS:MW, PSASBR, BLOPS2, AC3
PS VITA-currently playing:Gravity Rush, Uncharted:GA, Rayman Origins, DJMAX Technika Tune, PSASBR
BD Titles: Total 163 titles + 67 steelbooks
next on list: RE Retribution SB, Total Recall SB
my extras: Cinderella, Brave, and Nemo MetalPaks

DC completely, but I do hate the fact they essentially 'Ultimate'-ized their entire company. I probably sound like the fans after the first Crisis.

The whole "normal" approach to Marvel's characters is in fact what annoys me about them. Take Spider-Man: he has all these gorgeous supermodels who actually want him (Gwen, MJ, Black Cat, Betty Brant, etc.) but he tortures himself over who he wants. He has problems paying for his Manhattan lifestyle, but never considers moving back in with Aunt May because you're already helping her out with her bills anyway. Your life is awesome, so quit complaining about the little things.

Marvel also has also felt very second rate to me. Spider-Man's origin is a complete ripoff of Superman. Fantastic Four was only created as competition after the success of Justice League. Bucky was a ripoff of Robin. DC decides to revamp their comics with Crisis, so Marvel rushes out their own 'epic' Secret Wars. Almost every time DC does something, Marvel puts a spin on it and are garnered as geniuses. Granted, the concept on new ideas is hard to find, and there are no doubt examples to counter the ones I thought of.

I was on another board where someone said the Young Justice TV show was a ripoff of the "successful Marvel Comic Young Avengers", except the Young Justice comic started in the 90's. Company comparisons have been on my mind lately.

What about Doom Patrol?

I had forgot about them, especially considering their very similar origins in the 1960s. Some think Stan Lee ripped the Doom Patrol off, though the first issues came out very close together. Marvel took the team in a vastly different direction and the X-Men's success I will credit to all their own innovations.

I like both but for me it feels like DC comics has a little more depth to their stories than Marvel. Especially the great Batman comics. Marvel seems like it is more about crazy action, for me at least.

In the Marvel canon I love The Hulk and The X Men. I do miss some good new stories with The Hulk though.

Even thou I love Spider-Man, his origin was a totally copied from Superman. I remember when I was a kid, I got so exited to see the JLA series every Saturday mornings. Those were the good old days.... Marvel will never beat DC for me!!!

I've always been more partial to Marvel's superheroes. But, honestly, after starting to collect comics again I've been buying more DC Comics. Especially Green Lantern.

When I was younger, I would have said DC hands down and without hesitation. Batman was and still is my favorite hero of all time.

However, I think over the years Marvel has done a much better job of developing their universe and keeping it in shape. The new 52 reboot has me a bit hesitant, but that is probably because I haven't jumped into it yet.

Having said that, the things that are going on with Spider-Man, my second favorite, are killing me. I haven't had the heart to pick that book up for quite some time.

Both shops could do a better job of managing their published works. On the film side, no question Marvel pwns DC's @ss.

Marvel... 'cause every single time DC has a book/character I like, they kill them off or cancel the book. And after this whole 'New 52' b******t, none of the characters I like that were still around resemble the characters I loved.

The 'myth' that FF was created to challenge JL has been debunked many times. The idea that is it a 'clone' of the DC team Challengers of the Unknown' is a whole other matter.

Bucky is not a 'rip-off'', he was part of the whole 'teen hero' trend Robin started. DC themselves, along with every other publisher couldn't introduce sidekicks fast enough after Robin proved popular. By your logic, Speedy (Arsenal/Red Arrow) is a rip-off.

And Secret Wars came out A YEAR!!!! before Crisis and was created as part of a marketing partnership with Mattel to sell toys and had nothing to do with cashing in on Crisis. If your are going to challenge the 'theft of ideas' between Marvel and DC, at least know your facts.

It's always been DC for me. Although I don't buy any of the new comics anymore. I stick to the back issue bins, looking for 70's and 80's treasures. I can't stand what has become of DC!
