DC for the simple fact that those characters who have traits that depart from the norm are portrayed genuinely, as if they were actual people while Marvel's "diversity" are just caricatures.

@byondeon: Well I don't like Iron Heart or Cho Hulk replacing Iron Man and Hulk for representation; I'm ok with Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz being the new Lanterns of JL, at least there was more narrative flow to them replacing Hal.

It's also better to represent Muslim and gay characters without putting emphasis on them being Muslim and gay; it's better to normalise them by not treating them much differently from the non-minority characters, this should include not giving them extra spotlight solely for being different.

DC - Justice League

Superman - Kryptonian, Batman - Human, Wonder Woman - Demigoddess, Martian Manhunter - Martian, Green Lantern - Human, Hawkpersons - Thanagarian, Flash - Human, Aquaman - Atlantean-human hybrid

Marvel - Avengers

Captain America - Human, Tony Stark - Human, Thor, - a Norse God, Captain Marvel - Human, Hulk - Human, Spider-man - Human, Vision - Android, Hawkeye - Human, Scarlett Witch - Mutant

DC - Doom Patrol

I think everyone except for Danny the Street (which is a sentient street) are humans

Marvel - X-Men

I think everyone of them are mutants (Homo Superior)

I think DC is kinda more diverse in my opinion.

DC does it right. Marvel is a pile 9f SJW trash in the name of diversity.

When you say "diversity" do you mean characters of a variety of different backgrounds and abilities and personalities, or do you just mean "less white people"??

@ghostodoofus2: Marvel is better at portraying diversity.. I feel both are good, but Marvel have done it since the 60's and managed to do it really well, while DC have not as good but still not as good as Marvel.

@byondeon: Oh, well if we go by all time then Marvel is probably slightly better because of Claremont's X-Men run. I was only thinking of now.

@mimisalome: When it comes to race diversity, DC probably takes it with the Legion of Super-Heroes.

X-Men and a bunch of Asian heroes with a lot of other diverse characters. I say they have much better diversity.

Easily Marvel. The MCU is proof enough.

Neither is that great when it comes to diversity since they usually go for the lazy kind of it. But at least DC is usually a bit more subtle with it than Marvel.

Historically Marvel, though it's now come off as a bit pretentious. However, it's not world-ending like what comicgaters said.
