The fans' rivalry? I took me a long time, but I got over it recently. But as somebody said above, the franchise rivalry itself is good.

I never really believed otherwise. Ever since I was a child, I loved both Marvel and DC heroes.

As others have already said, the business rivalry is a great thing (it forces both companies to do their best) but the fan rivalry doesn't help anyone.

Theres a difference between having competition and pretending choosing 1 brand over another is life changing.

Really? I always knew you were team DC, but I never pegged you as a fangirl or anything.

It's never been lost on me that there's not point but DC is garbage with the exception of Batman & Question and thanks to MCU Marvel is also garbage. It all sucks now.

@kgb725: it’s ok to like more than the other, the only issue is when someone acts like you can’t like both. If that’s what you mean, I agree.

When I realized it's the loyalists who are ruining comics. When any company knows you're buying into their brand and not their product, they get complacent and think you will pay for any garbage they churn out.

That doesn't mean there's no point in the rivalry. Some people get carried away, it happens with everything.

I knew right from the start, and didn’t even realize that there was a rabid rivalry until much later in life. I was exposed to titles from both companies about the same time in my youth. I read Captain America and Batman, watched Wonder Woman and the Incredible Hulk on TV at night and the Superfriends and reruns of Marvel cartoons from the 60’s on Saturday mornings. When I got older fell away from comics, but returned in my late teens to DC’s Catwoman and the Fantastic Four. It’s always been a balance for me, so I don’t understand how heated some people can get over which publisher they prefer. I find it silly really. Why would you link your self identity to a corporation?

This fandoms are a tribalistic identity obsessed environment, and comics are no different.

I didn't know it was a thing before starting to go on ComicVine.

I'm still surprised that people consider that a normal rivalry.

I understand that when you are a Red Sox fan, as your team has to beat (for example) the Yankees, you can't really support both (and in that specific case the fans hate each other).

But what is the problem of enjoying reading both a Batman comics and a X-Men comics?

Or having fun both watching Avengers AND WonderWoman?

For me, it's silly at best.

I have two personalities.

I'm on my DC personality right now and my name is Fliescher. Marvel is garbage and I never read it but somehow I keep finding new marvel comics in my home.

When I realized indie comics were far far superior than both Marvel and DC combined, especially for a true intellectual and graphic novel connoisseur like myself. Refined material like Danger Girl, The Boys... Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose... such refined, delicate and nuanced stories. As time went on, I started to get even more intellectual, philosophical and deep. So deep so deep put Marvel and DC comics... to sleep.

Now the graphic novels I read don't even have illustrations, or characters, or text. Just colors and not normal colors too... colors that only have names in foreign languages... colors you don't know or have heard of... the writer of said graphic novels, are very old, and very wise spiritual holy men from Tibet who never speak or bathe, it gives the stories... a sense of profoundness, and depth, that Marvel and DC "comics" could never reach, even if they were the tallest man in the land, and depth was a small obstruction in the throat of a choking dolphin.

(In CV at least) it's mostly DCEU vs MCU now rather than DC vs Marvel. And I knew the DCEU vs MCU rivalry was pointless pretty much from the get-go since I've never really been a fan of either.

Humans are tribal. We pick a side and whoever is on the opposing side is are enemy. As long as we don't get to carried away, it's fine.
