A lot of things really. It was suppose to be this earth shattering event, the problem is we've seen this story so many times before, in fact DC has printed a couple of similar ones.

I really didn't like what was done with Cap, Spiderman, and Iron Man in this book. All were characters that I enjoyed, but this book created issues. Tony became a dick, they conveniently left out the major reason he was on the reg side in the main book and put it into one of the other Civil War titles. Cap acted like a lunatic, he just seemed off the entire time. Lastly they screwed up Spidey so much they had to reboot him to 20 years ago. I didn't read Spiderman then I read him when he was married to MJ so I was bitter, which was the bigger reason for the reboot.

Along with I always knew which side I was on, something you weren't suppose to feel when reading this book, and the lateness I was done. I still read Cap religiously along with the Ultimate stuff. I'll go on record that Captain America is currently the best book published by Marvel.

Alright I'm done ranting like a lunatic now.

Definately have a much stronger affinity for Marvel characters. I enjoy some of the DC characters, but I can read almost any Marvel character and be somewhat entertained. I think their comparitively low power scale is more appealing. Their flawed character is definately more appealing.

This is a myth with no concrete examples to prove it is true.

Superman / Hulk
Wonder Woman / Sentry
Batman / Captain America
Darkseid / Galactus
Monitor / Uatu
Neron / Mephisto
Flash / Silver Surfer
Zatanna / Scarlet Witch
Green Arrow / Hawkeye

Etc, etc, etc.

Heh, nah -- you were just being... thorough. It's good to know why you don't like something. I (not being a regular Marvel reader) only knew what was happening with Civil War from my bf and podcasts. Meh. It sounded like it was semi-interesting... but I am generally not a fan of global events. I hate being forced into buying titles I normally wouldn't, just so I can get the full story. Not to mention that it is hard on the pocketbook.

My motto is, "False dichotomies or nothing!"

(But I voted Marvel because, well, they're better :P).

Actually, neither the poll or the thread is a false dichotomy. Since "The fallacy of false dichotomy is committed when the arguer claims that his conclusion is one of only two options, when in fact there are other possibilities. "

The poll has a third option. Neither for me! People can certainly select that. That and I don't make either a forgone conclusion.

A false dichotomy is more like this:

Either I keep smoking, or I'll get fat. I don't want to get fat, so I better keep smoking.

Hehehe... just spent a lot of time researching logical fallacies lately... sorry.

Started off reading almost solely Marvel, but now it is a pretty even split although I enjoy DC's books more at the moment.

But the way I read the poll, your assumption is that someone either prefers DC to Marvel, or Marvel to DC, or they like "neither." That's the definition of a false dichotomy. Now, if the "neither" option is meant to encompass "I like both equally", that's different. But that's not how I read it.

Totally academic, anyway, because Marvel is better :P.
