Through the years it has been argued that while Marvel and DC are quite similar in terms of their characters and stories, there are many differences that give each of them a unique identity. Much has been said and discussed regarding these differences, adding to the historical feud gradually. Writing another page of this eventful history, we at Cinemaholic bring to you today an opinion piece describing the major differences between these stalwarts of the entertainment industry. Have a look and tell us in comments which one according to you makes the most sense.
I Pray to the Gods
Barring Batman, all members of the Justice League are like literal gods. Wonder Woman is the daughter of Zeus, Green Lantern is only limited by his imagination, Martian Manhunter can take any form imaginable, and Superman is… well, Superman. And Batman is the guy who beat them all. Avengers emulate certain godlike characteristics, but at the end of the day, they are mortals. Except for Thor and perhaps Hulk, no member of the Avengers has a power that can take Justice League head-on.
In a battle between the two stalwarts, I certainly have my money on Justice League. That being said, for the readers, Avengers are more relatable because of their real-life moral issues. Spider-Man, a teenager dealing with his newfound abilities and issues is as relatable as the guy next door. Iron Man, the boy genius of the group seems plausible and even doable because his success and superpowers are all because of Science. Justice League, however, is the ultimate human fantasy which may sound cool but in the end doesn’t even ‘seem’ real.
