DC and Marvel have been rivals right from the start. One might even say they’re like Coke and Pepsi. In a survey that I conducted a total of 7/24 students preferred DC and 17/24 preferred Marvel. A majority of MC students prefer Marvel! In my personal opinion I prefer Marvel, but first let’s look at the pros and cons of each.

  • Great character development
  • Darker pasts (relatable)
  • Better TV shows


  • Unorganized
  • Needs central universe
  • Some silly characters

  • Better movies
  • Everything is connected (central universe)
  • Humorous


  • Some characters don’t have enough development
  • Some bland villains
  • A little generic

Many say that Marvel has great movies and bad shows, it’s vice versa for DC. I think that they’re both good, but they have some qualities that make it better in other areas. Recently, DC is starting to make a more central cinematic universe, which is awesome! I’m excited to see infinity war but I wish there was more character development with villains in the Marvel universe. Either way I do like both, but Marvel is better in the cinematic aspect so far, and DC is better with TV shows.

Conclusion: Marvel: better movies; DC: better shows.
