Since the inception of the two most popular comics in history, there’s
been one ultimate, everlasting debate among each of the die-hard
comic book readers and fans—which comics are better? Marvel or DC?
But the answer is multi-dimensional. Why? Because nowadays,
the popularity of comics is heavily judged by the wider audience of movies
adapted from them.
Ever since MCU became ‘a thing’ and the pop culture phenomenon of a
cinematic universe happened to sway everyone of us, Marvel comics
have also been praised mostly depending on the films based on them in
the Infinity Saga—from 2008 till now. On the other hand, DC has had
few ups and downs and so far, the movies based on their comics
haven’t fared as successfully as Marvel’s.
But again, the big question that remains is, which one of them is the
Simply speaking in terms of comic books, then both of them have a
a large array of superhero characters who are immensely famous and
popular among all ages, whether it’s a kid, a teenager, an adult, or an

Captain America, Thanos, Doctor Doom, Venom, Black Widow and
teams like X-Men, Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Galaxy and the
Avengers, DC also has Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Darkseid,
Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam!, Lex Luthar, Joker, and Harley Quinn.
Their teams like Justice League, Teen Titans, and Suicide Squad are very
famous among the readers.
Both are toe-to-toe when it comes to power levels and other parameters of comparison. Although it just depends on who’s reading what at a particular interval of time.
Most readers in the west, still, love DC comics and not the MCU version of the comic books from Marvel. Whereas others love classic Marvel stories more than their cinematic versions on the big screen. There’s never a balance of sorts.
Yet, the question of which one’s better than the other is very tricky and simply cannot be answered.
Eventually, it comes down to the personal choice of which one’s your
favorite. Are you a fan of friendly neighborhood Spider-Man or the fastest speedster, Flash? Do you love the tactics of Iron Man more or
Batman’s? Can’t you really see anything beyond Superman’s powers or you are just in deep love with Thor? Is Wonder Woman your idol or
Black Widow’s smart intelligence outweighs that?
That’s the only possible difference between Marvel and DC.
Otherwise, both of these comics are engaging, have lots of interesting
tales, variety of superhuman characters and super gods—and what not!
