I’M A MARVEL

Posted in Comic Books, Marvel with tags on January 19, 2011 by Kaiderman

Our buddy Katie over at THE STORIES THAT REALLY MATTERED came up with a great MEME for her fellow Fanboy bloggers. The idea is simple: Which do you prefer? Marvel or DC Comics? Obviously, I’m a Marvel. Here’s my Top 5 reasons why:

5. STAN THE MAN.

DC loses for not having a Stan Lee. The man who started Marvel makes you want to read his comics with his enthusiasm alone. He is, not only an icon but, a bit of a character himself and his charm and enthusiasm are just so contagious.

4. BEST CHARACTERS.

Honestly, with the exception of Batman, I’ve never been a fan of the big DC characters. Whereas, I love just about everyone running around the Marvel universe. I think that’s mainly due to the fact that DC characters always seemed (Batman excluded) other-worldly and inaccessible. The Marvel characters were always so human… be it Iron Man’s drinking problem or Peter Parker’s inability to be as cool as his alter ego. Somehow, Marvel always makes the man inside the costume as interesting as the stuff they do with them on.

3. HOTTER CHICKS.

Don’t get me wrong! It’s not like I haven’t had a few Wonder Woman fantasies in my day. Linda Carter knows what I’m talkin’ about. However, the girls of the Marvel universe just take the cake. Mary Jane Parker? I like the sound of that!

2. MARVEL vs. DC.

Many of you probably don’t know (or remember) this but in the 90’s, Marvel and DC did a crossover comic where the 2 worlds collided. The fans voted on who would win the major battles and you know what? Marvel came out on top… because they are better.

1. WHAT’S MY NAME?

I couldn’t go around calling myself your friendly neighborhood Kaiderman and then be a DC, could I?
