I’ve been pretty busy this week so I haven’t dropped by to The Matticus Kingdom to check out your answers but I just did a quick skim and there’s been a lot of comments which is fantastic. If you haven’t read THIS post, asking you join into The Offical Matticus Kingdom Tug of War, well, you probably should head over HERE to check it out instead! This should spark a pretty interesting tug of war 🙂 If you are into the DC universe, well, go ahead and tug hard and well, if you want Marvel to win, pull back with all your might.
The question we are tugging for in this war is: Which universe of superheroes (and villains) is superior: Marvel or DC?
Now, the big question here is which side did I pick? I could’ve just answered in the comments but you know, I like to talk and ramble 😉 I’ll try to keep it short, ok?
Just in case you are unfamiliar, because I’m a mega beginner. I only know about either of them because of movies. Here’s a poster for each of them.
So, which side am I going to pull with all my force, right?
Its really funny actually. For all of today before I sat down to write this and search up those images, I was thinking I’d back DC comics because hey, there’s Batman, Catwoman, The Joker and some pretty impressive heros and villains. I haven’t experienced the apparent awesomeness (from what I’e heard) of Arrow yet so it wouldn’t be fair to include that.
But, as much as it pains me to say this, lets get those apologies out there. I’m sorry, Batman, I had to let you go. I can’t defend DC Universe. If one of my really good friends read this, she will give me a lesson also, but still…
*sigh of relief* Now that thats out of the way. I’m joining all of you tugging for Marvel.
Now, hear me out, ok? I had to pick a side and not just a hero. If it was a hero, Batman would win hands-down but I took a good hard look at DC Universe and what its had to offer (in terms of movies). Other than Batman and Catwoman, Green Lantern was a disaster and not to mention a snoozefest. Watchmen was a mega weird one and still so boring (but apparenlty I’m the minority who thinks that), and well, I didn’t see Jonah Hex because Megan Fox was in it and I don’t really want to watch it. Call it a lack of exposure to other DC universe characters but they aren’t winning over my heart right this moment.
Isn’t this concept art poster so cool?
With that said, Marvel has done a great job. All the characters are fun. Wolverine and X-men kicked some ass along with Cyclops and Rogue and the whole bunch. Even the villains were pretty bad-ass. I mean Xavier to Magneto, epic! 🙂 Then, just look at The Avengers. Would you want to mess with The Hulk? I wouldn’t. I mean, thats one of the reasons, I would not choose DC either. I mean, Joker is pretty nasty but some big-ass green dude can probably crush me. Look over at the positives: Thor is just fantastic, I mean, he’s a demi-god. I think that says it all. Ironman is not godly but he is quite torn and broken but pretty powerful in his own way. And then, we have Hawkeye who is a great archer and Black Widow is a femme fatale right now. A great team right there! Oh and how can I forget, Blade is in this mix also. Who doesn’t love a vampires? I know I do!
What wins it for me has to be Spiderman though. I mean, it was pretty much a battle between Spiderman and Batman in the first place. I’m not very much Tobey Maguire Spiderman as opposed to Andrew Garfield but Spiderman is quite Amazing in itself. There’s a god, a few superhumans and some pretty awesome fighting capabilities in this mesh and I’d say Marvel is the winner, for me at least 🙂
Do you agree? Maybe you disagree and you’re more of a DC Universe supporter? Head on over to the Matticus Kingdom HERE. If you don’t want to do a post, then just leave a comment so that you can make sure that you give a bigger chance to your side.
Keep on tugging! Tomorrow is the last day to help out your side! 🙂
