Danger lurks behind every corner, but there is always a superhero to protect and bring justice to the city. There are different superheroes from different universes, such as Marvel and Detective Comics (DC). Fans argue about which universe is better.

DC comics was founded by Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, an American magazine writer and entrepreneur,  in 1934, and is owned by Warner Bros. It’s headquarters is in Burbank, CA. The first comic was released February 1935, which included the first superhero of the DC universe, Superman, according to the official DC website. Many movies and animated shows feature some of DC’s iconic superheroes, including Batman and Wonder Woman.

“My dad, brothers and I love the DC universe. Although my mom likes the Marvel movies, she likes some of the DC heroes,” senior Israel Gonzalez said.

While DC came first, many prefer Marvel Comics.

Marvel Comics was founded by Martin Goodman, an American magazine and newspaper publisher. The company was created in New York City in 1939. The first issue was released October 1939, including the first superhero to be presented in the Marvel universe, The Human Torch, according to the official Marvel website. Marvel also releases movies and animated TV shows, featuring Spider-man and Thor.

While some argue over which universe, superhero or supervillain is better, others argue about which company or which movie and television show is better. Fans defend their fandom, and argue with anyone who says otherwise.

“I love the Marvel cinematic universe, it’s characters are playing the part from the comics very well,” junior Isaiah Guevara said.

Overall female heroes are missing. Both universes are dominated by men. DC comics introduced Wonder Woman in 1940, “Mystery Woman of the Jungle,” according to the comic reviews on ScreenRant.

“I think this is good because now more women joined both universes and gives more attention to the female audience,” senior Yasmin Martinez said.

Heroes come together to face danger and help clear the city of evil. Unlike their heroes, fans continue to debate which universe, superhero and supervillain is better .
