We’re living in a golden age of comic book movies with more characters making their way to the big screen than ever before.DC vs. Marvel Comics  was a comic book limited series crossover published by DC Comics and Marvel Comics from April to May 1996. DC and Marvel Universes become aware of the other’s existence, and challenge one another to a series of duels involving each universe’s respective superheroes.

Marvel’s biggest rival, DC Comics, is diving into the cinematic-universe-building business, too.DC comics are much like the Greek Mythology.Superman was one of the first comic book superheroes to appear in those little squares not 80 years ago. After that, it was only a matter of time before more heroes followed suit. Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman… they came from mankind’s imagination, just as Perseus, Heracles, and Achilles had.

And then Marvel comes along. Marvel comics are much like the Roman myths. Rome adopted the Greek gods and took them as their own, changing the names but keeping the stories the same. Marvel has adopted many of the DC heroes and villains, though they’ve changed the stories.

#There were eleven battles fought between the two universes:

  • Aquaman (DC) vs. Namor (Marvel).

Aquaman wins by summoning a whale to leap out of the water and land on Namor. Since Namor is pinned and unable to move, he is declared the loser.

  • Elektra (Marvel) vs. Catwoman (DC).

Elektra won by cutting off Catwoman’s whip as she hung from a girder on a building under construction. Catwoman survived by falling into a dumpster filled with sand.

. Flash (DC) vs. Quicksilver (Marvel).

The Flash wins using superior speed.Doing it in the Marvel Universe would defeat the purpose of the competition since it would mean removing the power that you’re trying to compare, speed. It’d be like removing quicksilver’s mutant gene and putting him in the race. If Flash doesn’t have access to his powers there’s no point. Of course,there’s no point anyway since Flash is so much faster that Quicksilver that this whole thing is ridiculous.

  • Robin (DC) vs. Jubilee (Marvel)


Robin won by using his cape as a decoy and then by tying up Jubilee.Jubilee and Robin are actually together before being transported. This of course picks up on the inspired decision to have the two stylistically similar character form some kind of relationship during the displacement of realms.

  • Silver Surfer (Marvel) vs. Green Lantern (DC).

Silver Surfer won when both collided with each other and released a huge explosion which knocked out Green Lantern but left Silver Surfer unfazed.

  • Thor (Marvel) vs. Captain Marvel (DC).

Thor won when Captain Marvel was forced to change back to his alter ego Billy. Billy tried to change back, but Thor used Mjolnir to intercept the lightning-bolt that would have transformed him back to normal, the resulting  impact knocking Billy out and sending Thor’s hammer flying off.

  • Superman (DC) vs. Hulk (Marvel).

After exchanging punches and a burst of heat-vision, Superman wins.Ordinarily I would call this fight for Superman as eventually he would realize that Hulk just gets more powerful the angrier he gets and would back off until he calms down. That’s the only rational way to beat the Hulk under normal circumstances — you defeat his anger.

  • Spider-Man (Marvel) vs. Superboy (DC)


With the advantage of his spider-sense, Spider-Man wins by tying up Superboy with impact webbing and electrocuting him with high voltage.Superboy was generally depicted as a far less mature character, whose application of powers rated him considerably less than his Kryptonian counterpart. Likewise, Spider-man was in a very different place quite literally, with the clone called Ben Reilly assuming the mantle in a period where it was believed he was the true Spider-man. Of course, ultimately this fight has far greater resonance in hindsight, with this Spider-man being revealed definitively as the clone

  • Batman (DC) vs. Captain America (Marvel).

The match ends in uncertainty—though both are evenly matched after hours of combat, a sudden flushing of the sewer knocks Cap off balance as Batman manages to strike him with a Batarang. Batman rescues Cap from certain death via drowning, but Cap’s unconsciousness from nearly drowning causes him to lose.

  • Wolverine (Marvel) vs. Lobo (DC).


Wolverine beats Lobo in a brutal barfight which was largely off panel.Wolverine is indestructible. He can regenerate and has the worlds deadliest weapons on his side. Lobo on the other hand has superman’s strength and smell, he can regenerate but is not immortal, and can live in outerspace because he doesn’t need oxygen.Lobo is just a rip off of wolverine(aside from the part about superstrength and no need of oxygen…) Logan and him would get into and eventually someone would win. The victor of course would be wolverine because again once he gets a few hits on Lobo the battle is going to get slower and less paced and then wolverine will end it with a decapitation…

  • Storm (Marvel) vs. Wonder Woman (DC)

After Diana drops Thor’s hammer in order to allow the fight to happen as it was intended, Storm wins the battle    after repeatedly hitting Diana with her lightning after a brief melee encounter.Seriously… this is an interesting match up. Both characters have high potential for destructive force, with Wonder Woman probably being the more obvious of the two. Her style involves direct (neck breaking) action, employing her incredible Amazon strength to disarm and harm.
