Marvel has created a unique set of superheroes with realistic back stories and amazing plots. DC also has some great Superheroes but they aren't as "Super" as they are realistic. Marvels superheroes are very well thought up and give meaning to the phrase "SuperHero". At least that is my opinion.
DC seems to rely entirely on the Gotham franchise which isn't bad in itself, but it's still as silly a premise as superman. Marvel acknowledges the sillyness of superpowers and creates characters to reflect that.
Marvel ha a cooler name <(^.^<)
marvel is better because i like ultron better than killer croc.
DC has the best heros and will crush DC if ever crossed over.
What do you mean by better? I am not a comic book reader, but I am still a fan of both companies. I've played many of each companies video games, watched their films, and seen many of their cartoons. I am more fan of DC because my two favorite films of all time are The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. I also think that Batman is the most badass superhero ever created, but is that not what you mean by better? If you mean "better" as in more influential or more widely recognized than DC still takes the vote because it contains the two most iconic comic book characters of all time in batman and superman. Also, the most iconic female comic book character of all time in Wonder Woman. Not to mention, that so many comic book characters Marvel has created are just rip-offs from DC. My vote goes to DC.
