Korg is funnier but I wouldn’t say he’s a better character.

Aquaman has potential at a great standalone film that really fleshes out his character and shows the range of emotions he has.

Korg is comic relief-- that's it.

I don't know what's more sad; that this thread was made with the idea that it's an actual debate or that they're tied in votes in the polls at the point I've posted this....

This is comicvine, people prefer Marvel over DC, and they HATE DCEU with a passion.

Very true. The obvious bias is saddening.

I don't mind people not liking the movies at all. I just find it super weird that they put a lot of energy into hating DCEU and they go really far with their efforts.

Aquaman easily. Korg is annoying at best and down right mood-ruining at worst.

Korg > Aquaman of course. Hell, he's a funnier and more sensibly developed character than all the mcu heroes combined. Korg is smarter too; when Thanos arrived he knew to leave with his new bae, black valkyrie.

@chimeroid: Like Lone_Wolf_and_Cub does? Yes, it's pretty strange. The pettiest and most unnecessary comments and criticism I see for anything is always for the DCEU. It does have it's faults, and more so with it's latest film, but there are many users that wouldn't even give it credit for something as simple as cinematography even if not comparing it to the MCU.

I personally think MoS will be a film that'll be recognized as a great film some years down the road.

As of now neither has that much of a character. But Korg was funnier so him. Don't know why people are trying to act like it's biased to side with a funnier character with little screentime over a less funny character with little screentime.

I'd rather not waste time in an actual discussion with you, because anything that resembles something civil and coherent would be lost on you. In short, don't waste time tagging me, I don't read what you say.

Given a few users track record with anything comparing the DCEU in any aspect to the MCU, it's not far fetched to think there would be many biased opinions.

I'm only referring to the comments you direct to me. I come across your biased opinions a lot, so it's not surprising to see you say that Korg is better (the only comments of yours I've read here).

@batman242: There are biased opinions on virtually everything. But I think its unfair to call out people for being biased when they have reasonable opinions.

For me I operate under the belief that all film is subjective. And any opinion of how good a film or character is, is valid. So it bothers me in general when people call others biased for there opinions on such things. I understand it to an extent if someone has an extremely unreasonable or strange perspective on something. But even than I wouldn't call someone biased because you can't see into their head or determine what they truly believe. How do you know they aren't just a little odd and prefer something/someone that most wouldn't?

Personally I would only call an opinion on a character or movie biased if it shows a clear double standard.

Reasonable opinions? I hope you realize the main user I was referring to (in this thread) is far from reasonable. I'm only referring to users like him.

I've heard some reasonable criticism on the DCEU, but to think that most of that criticism is reasonable is quite laughable, honestly.

The main instance of a double standard that I could think of off the top of my head is the destruction. The DCEU was bashed over and over for it's 'unnecessary' destruction, yet you don't get that same criticism for the tens of times the same destruction happened anywhere else; New York in The Avengers, Sokovia in Age of Ultron (not just MCU films, but those are off the top of my head).

Indeed, but we can't judge the character over a movie that's not out yet

Korg is comic relief-- that's it.

And that somehow takes from his character?

IMO Dragon Ball has it even worse, but its true that the DCEU gets bashed far more than it should.

It does have it's faults, and more so with it's latest film, but there are many users that wouldn't even give it credit for something as simple as cinematography even if not comparing it to the MCU.

Yup

I was under the impression it was one of the two recognized movies of the DCEU (Its better than WW IMO)

I know, that's exactly why I said 'potential'

And that somehow takes from his character?

It doesn't. It just limits him to be no more than comic relief. Which I why I said in comparison to Aquaman who can be comic relief and potentially expand on other emotions, which would flesh out the full range of his character. Being more than one thing (and the actor displaying it in a great manner) should surely make a character more interesting than a one-trick-pony character.

Of the DCEU, yes, but not recognized as a great movie overall.

I'm sure after Aquaman, Arthur will be the far superior character, but I didn't think he had much in JL, I would say he's the "better" character, but I think I enjoyed Korg more.

Yeah, a one-dimensional character is usually less interesting than one with more depth, but not necesarilly better though.

Oh, you mean recognized outside of CBMs, right? Hmm, tbh, from CBMs, I only hold V, Watchmen and Scott Pilgrim as really good movies independent of their genre, there are probably a couple more I'm not thinking about rite nao. I'm probably biased, but MCU and DCEU movies have something that prevents me from taking them as more than popcorn flicks. And some are great popcorn flicks! But they are still that.

I agree, but Aquaman's mere presence adds more to the story (though I dislike the film overall) than Korg did. That to me makes him better than Korg.

Can't disagree with your picks. Scott Pilgrim is one of my all-time favorite films. Watchmen is one of my favorite CBMs. It's all personal at the end of the day, but I still do feel Man of Steel should be recognized ultimately as the best CBM.
