I discovered Comicvine through Google when I started wondering who would win in fights between characters... Back in the day, I would google: "Superman vs Thor," "Batman vs Wolverine," "Deathstroke vs Deadpool," etc. Comicvine kept popping up and I started reading through the threads. Users would discuss the topic pretty thoroughly at that time, and people were even providing scans as evidence to back up what they said (well, some of the time). So, I decided to join Comicvine awhile back (even though my post count doesn't show it, I don't post a lot).

When I was looking up information about character bios and I found the comicvine Wiki and spent hours readings a lot of wikis of characters, and story arcs.

when I was bored, and was trying to find superman versus Thor who would win. actually, killermovies is the one I found first, I witnessed a 5:1( troll ) debate in which the troll was humiliated so good, I retread it many times. then I found this site, and the general knowledge is higher. so I made an account, and first began to read about the battles, then buy the comics, then, posted my first word.

In my day, it was just about the only comic book site around that didn't look like complete garbage.

I must've been browsing the internet, looking up characters, when I came across the wiki. At first I didn't know what the website was called but after a while I became more and more informed. Eventually I decided to join, not thinking it would be anything spectacular. Now I check Comic Vine every day.

I was just starting to get more interested in comics so I was googling for a community so I could read some discussions and learn more about it, Comic Vine was the site that looked the most promising out of the first few search results. I really liked that it had a wiki I could help with and the quests were really fun.

About a year ago a friend of mine would always argue with me about who could beat who so we finally looked it up and found ComicVine.

@bruxae: Bruxae's story to a T matches my experience. We also joined around the same time. Weird.

Back in the Whiskey Media days, I found out about this site through Anime Vice when I was wandering around. I wanted to pursue an evil persona for fun, so I joined.

I honestly cannot remember (it might have been around 2005) but during my lurker days, the site wasn't much of a comic wiki and that was long before this site was known for having the worst Storm fanboys ever.

Same way as the OP. Searching battle and seeing that this site always popped up, and eventually deciding to join. Looked much better than the killer movies forum.

No lie this post is word for word exactly how I found out about Comic vine, but I just lurked for a long time and just recently decided to join because I wanted to start making my own vs threads. The first vs I ever googled was the forbidden Goku vs Superman thing (thinking not many people had thought of such a match up since I was younger and ignorant) and oh boy was I mistaken lmao then I kept google searching random vs matches then eventually I noticed Comic vine was not only the first link just about every time it always had the best debates/debaters.

I frequented Giantbomb, and ComicVine was one of the buttons at the bottom of the page. I eventually clicked said button, and here we are.

I run a blog dedicated to 'The Flash' & I was looking for images of him to use to make a photoset - I decided I liked the formatting of the site and created an account.

I then discovered the magical place known as the Battle Forums and now I spend all my time there.
