Tale as old as time, just as the Beauty and the Beast theme song says, that’s how long Marvel and DC have rivalled each other. From comics issues to today’s cinematic universe, it’s a raging war especially for both fans of both parties.
There are also times that they copy each other, especially their characters (I’d write about that in another post, sadly I can’t at the moment). But I’d like to point out some of the major differences between these titanic companies.
We all know that Spiderman is from New York, so does the Avengers and their likes. Batman is from Gotham, Superman is from Metropolis. Get it? While Marvel tends to picture their heroes in real life locations, DC somewhat does it fictionally. Did I get that right? Now moving on…
Whilst, the X-men initially treats their powers as curse, Superman and the likes on the other hand on DC tends to treat theirs as blessings. They are given this and are called to embrace their powers and abilities.
3. How they got their powers
Superman’s power was inherent, as with Supergirl and Wonder Woman. Spiderman got his in a freak accident, so does Hulk. Captain America got his through some serum. DC tends to hold their hero born with their abilities or the ability to hone it at a young age. Marvel on the other hand made it look more grounded, more relatable since the heroes more usually get their powers in freak occurrences happening in their universe or immediate surroundings.
From my samples, there are some exceptions, but ultimately these are what I think the major differences between the two comic behemoths.
