DC is more original and has stronger heroes and villains

While you may say that DC is more original than Marvel, and it does have multiple strong characters, Marvel has many more characters that are more relatable. You can't really relate to Superman because he's practically a god, and while Batman IS a damaged person, so is the Punisher.

True, but think about the villains too, JOKER, LEX LUTHOR. Plus it's not like Marvel isn't a bit over-the-top too.(Galactus, Thanos, Dr.strange, World Breaker Hulk, Ant-man).

All of those Marvels characters are next to nothing compared to DC, such as the Zone Child or the New Gods (one of which took a direct hit from Superman, then knocked out the Man of Steel with a single blow). But if you"re looking for a relatable villain let's go with Loki. Loki seeks to destroy Thor because he's jealous of the fact that Thor is the favorite child. If you have a sibling who is always treated better than you wouldn't you be trying to tarnish their shine as well? Or Magneto who is NOT a villain but rather an anti-hero because he despises humans for their negative views and actions towards mutants, and so he fights violence with violence. I believe that Marvel is better than DC only because of the stronger connection to the characters. Although I will admit that some of it may not be as "original" as DC (Deadpool = Deathstroke)
