DC and Marvel fans have been battling over who has better movies, comics, characters, etc. for years. Does it help in any way?
Well, on a large scale, yes. Marvel and DC have to try their best to make good movies and one up each other. So their rivalry is great for the fans. Better movies for us to watch, as opposed to just one company running the market on superhero movies and not really putting in effort.
But what about arguing among fans?
That’s a more grey area.
I don’t think there’s a problem with having a friendly argument about the properties, but there are definitely times when people cross the line. And why do some fans show hatred to the other side. DC fans and Marvel fans are extremely similar. Everyone has a love for comic book characters. Why spend all of your time and energy yelling at someone who loves the same things as you. Art is subjective, and movies and comic books are art. Neither DC or Marvel is better than each other. You can like one more than the other, but you can’t truly say one is better than the other.
That’s the way I see it. The same thing goes for any kind of medium like music, books, videogames, or anything subjective. People will continue tearing each other apart, regardless, though. Thanks for reading.
