Since the late 1930s, the Marvel and DC comics groups have entertained the world with superheroes and the amazing stories behind them. In the beginning, people enjoyed the world of superheroes through comic books but now, the enthralling realm of superheroes is (more often than not) enjoyed through cinema. While iconic heroes created by geniuses like Stan Lee and Jerry Siegel have been universally enjoyed by all, the two monopolies of the superhero worlds have been competing with one another since the start.Quite possibly the most iconic cultural figureheads of the superhero realms are Super Man and Captain America, each from a different universe, Marvel and DC. These two heroes are the equal counterparts from each company and even resemble each other. The two biggest and most followed producers of these popular heroes have always been at war with one another. But with its cinematic universe completely trumping the competition, the Marvel Comics group is obviously on the winning side.Fans from all over the world have debated, argued, and disputed with each other for decades over which super hero monopoly has outshined the other. The arguments always came down to either Marvel or DC. With today’s level of technology at its prime, it is evident that the favorite heroes introduced through comics have now been brought to life through television and cinema.Followers of the superhero worlds have greatly anticipated seeing their favorite characters justly portrayed on screen for some time now. While some attempts at superhero movies have fallen flat in the past, it is safe to say that Marvel has gotten the hang of it (“it” being producing astounding, box-office-breaking movies). DC has made some very bright attempts so far to catch up to Marvel’s level of genius, but fans and critics have not responded nearly as well to them. For example, three of Marvel’s movies are currently sitting comfortably in the top ten grossing movies of all time amongst the Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, whereas DC, on the other hand, doesn’t.The reason for DC coming up short in the movie making business comes down to quite a few reasons, some of them being non-relatable characters, depressing atmosphere, bad editing, and poor character portrayal in comparison to the original comic books. For example, many people who were fans of the original Superman comics will agree that the New York-destroying character who wears an all-black super suit in the latest movies is not the same Kal-El they’ve known all their lives.In comparison, Marvel has produced through its movies just about everything that DC hasn’t. Captain America, in comparison, is entirely better represented in the movies because the character brought to life by Stan Lee in the comic books is clearly seen in the cinematic universe that Marvel has created.Whether an original comic book fan or otherwise, most can agree that Marvel is the best superhero comics group there is. Because it has a much more sophisticated method of making incredible movies, Marvel has no competition.
