I used to be so into marvel. All the X-titles and Avenger titles and fantastic 4 etc. Then I got into DC around the first Crisis (fell in love with the LOSH and have now got "almost" a full run thanks to TBP and back issues) Now DC is about all I can read. Marvel got a little too left of center for me to enjoy their books (X-men is just... I don't even know anymore) I think Marvels all out smoking ban rubbed me the wrong way and didn't feel very realistic (i know, do it for the impressionable kids... but the Thing, Wolverine, and Nick Fury all giving up their cigars??? Unless it's a movie-which has a way higher audience than a comic-then it's OK to smoke???) DC feels more like most of their books are trying to tell a story and Marvel feels like it's preaching... just my opinion. (but if it were MU toys vs. DC infinite Heroes- marvel all the way!)

Big Batman fan here, so big that he beats my favorite Marvel characters (Wolverine,Spidy,IronMan) combined. I just like the artwork,characters and stories alot more.
Batman,Wonder Woman, Superman, Joker beat all Marvel combined imo and they didnt even need help from Flash,GL,Catwoman my other favorites .

My favorite marvel characters are Punisher, DareDevil, Captain America, Deadpool, Wolverine, Iceman, Gambit and Ironman. My favorite DC Characters are Batman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Flash, WonderWoman, Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. I hate Ultimate X-men for effing up some core characters like Colossus.
When I'm through, they'll scrape you off the wall with a squeegee!

I don't even bother with the Ultimate series. It was written to sell books to people that got into comics because of the movies. Lazy people that dosn't want to read and research the history of the characters. I do like the cartoons they made for the Ultimate universe (not the Xmen), Ultimates was good, Dr strange, Iron Man, and Thor vs were all great though. I wish they never would have sold movie rights to fox.

Always have been. Books are easier to jump into.
I understand the pros and cons of each publisher, but for me, Marvel characters are just more entertaining to read.

Well, the thing is as a group I prefer the X-men, I find the interaction among the characters tangible to me, because they're like young people intertwined in personal dramas yet they have powers. They're like freaks. Never really loved Captain America, Hulk, Avengers, Spiderman, Nick Fury. I find there comics to be dull.
However individually I prefer the DC characters, they're more like traditional heroes. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are always a good read IMO. As far as the films go, it's hit or miss though. X 1 and 2 were awesome, Batman Begins, and Dark Knight were classic. Spiderman 1 and 2 were good. Also Iron Man was the bomb. However, both Hulk movies were sub par, Superman Returns was good in character, but lacked a substantial plot. I hated Wolverine, but Hugh Jackman plays the role very well. Spiderman 3 seemed too jumbled. The list goes on and on. As far as the movies go, I place 80% of the credit or blame on the director and writer. And 100% of it taken out or given to the production company.
I'm going off topic, but I chose DC because I can read any single title and be entertained, but X-Men only for Marvel titles. I usually buy any x-title centered around Rogue, Gambit, Beast, Iceman, and Storm. Still waiting for Jean to come back too!

I have been a fan of both over the years, but now read mostly DC stuff. I like what they are doing with the characters more. I have always been a big fan of "supporting" characters like Dick Grayson, Wally West and a few others. It is cool to see them becoming better and better heroes. Marvel stuff seems stagnant and right now they seem caught in this trend of killing off their characters being the only way they can change them.
