We all know that Marvel and DC?s so-called “feud” has been going on for decades.

Marvel and DC have been at it for as long as I can remember. Background stories aside, I have always been fascinated how these heroes could mirror each other. DC?s superheroes, as one colleague placed them, are people who, in one way or another, ought to be idolized. They are role-models to be sought out; guides to be looked at.

Marvel?s heroes, on the other hand, do have some flaws in spite of the fact that they are heroes. Take Tony Stark for example?an angst-ridden hero hiding under his genius and his armor. Thor is trying to be worthy of his father?s throne, while Captain America is a man displaced in time. Here we?re going to take a look at a partial comparison between DC and Marvel, as noted on?Movie Pilot. Also, we?re going to take a look at some DC Comic line-ups coming in 2016 courtesy of Comic Book.

Different Strokes

The Movie Pilot article tried to make sense of the fact that both DC and Marvel is going to have a busy 2016.

As it appears in the Movie Pilot article, every movie that Marvel has is answered by DC in 2016. It?s not really DC?s fault, however; they?re trying to create their own universe, while Marvel is adding to theirs. ?While it?s only natural that Marvel fans will always think that Marvel is superior, while DC fans will always look to Superman and Batman as better heroes when compared to Captain America and Iron Man.

In the end, it will be the fans who are winners. Having more movies about their favorite superheroes only mean fantasies fulfilled for fans who want to see what it?s like to watch Iron Man or Batman live on the silver screen.

DC?s 2016 Lineup enough to battle?

First off, we take a look at DC?s lineup as per Comic Book:

  • Batman v Superman (2016)
  • Suicide Squad (2016)
  • Wonder Woman (2017)
  • Justice League 1 (2017)
  • The Flash (2018)
  • Aquaman (2018)
  • Shazam (2019)
  • Justice League 2 (2019)
  • Cyborg (2020)
  • Green Lantern (2020)

Marvel?s own line-up is displayed in the Comic Book article, and as it appears, we?ll be seeing a lot more of both. However, it does appear bland when compared to the lineup Marvel has; it might also be because Marvel has already established these characters, while DC has yet to start. It will be exciting, however, to see how DC will approach the construction of a universe from scratch.

With the width of the universe of each of their characters namely Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern, it will be exciting to see how DC goes about with the build. Will they be exploring more about each character?

DC Comics is ready

Perhaps DC is telling Marvel that they?re ready to take on what Marvel has to throw. There might be a competition between them, or there might not be. What?s important is that this is occurring now, when it?s an exciting time to be a comic book fan. Until 2020, it appears we will be seeing new shows and comic book plots appearing, and that?s good, whether you?re a fan of DC or Marvel.
