Default Are you a DC or a Marvel? -or- Marvel Boy vs DC Girl *dadada*

So -- I grew up loving me some DC. I still do, though I spend most of my time reading indie and small press books now-a-days. My boyfriend is a Marvel Zombie through and through. The discussions we have about the two universes can get pretty heated and pretty amusing at the same time. Inevitably it comes down to the same old argument... he says "DC characters are all way too overpowered" citing Superman as his prime example. --- I say "And Marvel doesn't have the same problem, c'mon -- what about Jean Grey and Scarlet Witch". It's all good natured in the end. No fist-a-cuffs or anything. But there has always been this rivalry between the two companies and the two groups of fans.

So -- are you a DC or a Marvel?

Is there someone if your life you butt heads with because of this?

I'm technically a Dark Horse girl, but I voted DC boy because, given the choice between the two, I'm much more a DCU fan.

I'm a DC guy, the only "Marvel" books I buy are Powers and Criminal; and the only 616 proper series I've ever bought is Irredeemable Ant-Man.

Ugh. I can't choose I'm a huge fan of both. On paper I pull more DC books but I really love what Bru and Bendis do at Marvel. Does Wildstorm and Vertigo count towards DC? Cause then I guess I would go with DC.

I used to be a Marvel Zombie and then something happened, it was called Civil War. That along DC bringing Hal back into the fold, I jumped ship to DC. I try to limit myself to a few Marvel Books. If I'm reading older stuff, I like Marvel.

Although I grew up on Silver Age Superboy and such from my uncles. So possibly it was inevitable that I would switch to DC at some point.
