Marvel has X-men, and Spiderman, and Iron Man...but DC has Batman, and that trumps anything Marvel can trot out.

though i do like both, and generally prefer Marvel art.

The only comic I like anymore is Garfield minus Garfield but if I had to pick I'd go with Marvel just because of X-Men.

While I love Spiderman, that Batman / Superman combo is just unbeatable. Plus I'm so pumped for The Dark Knight right now, there's now way I can possibly vote against Batman. So there you have it.

I wish I knew more about the original DC and Marvel stories though. Comic books were never really a part of my childhood (I realize that those aren't always a "kid thing" but you get the point) so all my experience comes from the movies and a few of the cartoons back in the day.

Marvel. Why? Simple they crushed the CCA (Comic Code Authority). In 1971 Marvel was asked to do a public awareness campaign of sorts. They were asked to do a story on drug abuse and it's dangers by the government. CCA denied approval and Marvel published it anyway. Marvel forced the first revision of the CCA codes since it's inception in 1954 and published with out approval more and more regularly. Marvel completely withdrew from the CCA in 2001.

DC and Archie Comics are the only 2 major publishers STILL following the code. On occasion DC will publish with CCA approval for the odd "grown up" story line.

I voted Marvel.

Why?

Superman is a cheater.

Though Batman is probably one of my top favorites, cause Batman could totally happen.

But Superman's cheating overwhelms Batman's possibility.

Plus, Iron Man rocks, Fantastic Four has Torch and Thing, and Wolverine and Punisher.

Done.

Marvel gets my vote as well. The characters just seem more "real".

But like Puzuma mentioned when DC DOES publish something that doesn't abide by the CCA then it is absolutely AMAZING i.e. Preacher, Fables, The Exterminators...etc. All some of the best graphic novels around (in my humble opinion), and many think of the Preacher series as THE best series ever. And of course The Dark Knight is usually second.
