    DC makes characters
    Marvels make better plagiarized version of those characters.
    In terms of comic books, DC is better than Marvels, they just have mediocre movie adaptation. Whereas Marvels redefined its brand through great movie adaptation, thus resulting in its current success.

    You know the people saying that marvel always copies is stupid for some they admit they took inspiration from but others are some they thought and even when they do marvel tries to make them different when dc copies they make them very similar to the marvel character and dc isn’t original a lot of their characters they got in the 50s they took from other comic book companies so saying dc is original is bullshit and only stupid ass dc fanboys try find a way to bash marvel but marvel has always been better than dc

    Some of these are copy cats but the X-men and Vision were not. The release dates were a few months apart, I'm not an expert but I would think that writing a story, doing all the artwork, and printing all the copies for release would take a little more than 3 months.

    Damn Marvel.. not a good look. It's no wonder they are owned by Disney... they steal shit all the time too. Disney even tried to take credit for The Lion King as their "first original story"... Then it turns out they STOLE the story and almost scene by scene from a movie made in Japan. And they still deny it.. LOL. Match made in heaven.

  • Macdonald Odogwu

    True and true it is not who copied who?but who nailed their characters first,for example Nemor came first but Aquaman just nailed it,I love the movie,that is how it should be.

  • Macdonald Odogwu
    Macdonald Odogwu 24 days ago

    It so happened that you are DC fan boy,if you wanted to be fair in your judgement you would have given each copied characters 5 from each Comic company, you just deliberately picked much characters from DC and claimed that marvel copied them and get people battling over nonsense. Some of your copy info are incorrect. Next time do your home work well,you only did this video to created problem between DC and Marvel fanboys whom I see as unreasonable, if they where all good comic readers,they would have love reading each character origin story and give kudos to their creator,people get inspired by other people's storylines to write their own,the world is filled of this,Marvel/DC have done this many times it is not something to fight over.then my Question is who is more popular as an editor/publisher in the comic world,Stan Lee of cause,but is he the best?.I love comic and love reading them,name them.it is unlimited.

    Namor can live on shore/surface without needing to go back to the ocean for a very long time. Aqua man cannot. And let's face it about the VISION; He and Wanda aka SCARLET WITCH'S relationship has gotten more exposure than DC's boy. And Sub mariner wishes to preserve the ocean life , while AQUA MAN brings scores of it to out of luck fishermen. BTW, Namor does have animal telepathy too.

  • Swyzzlestyx the Green Warlock

    You're mistaken about Namor's abilities. He can speak with aquatic animals, like Aquaman, but he doesn't do it as often.

    Marvel as all has very childish characters super heroes, but they know how to produce it in wide screen very good, most marvel characters are silly, but they do have few independent heroes like spider man, iron man, hulk and the x-men, all other characters are shitty sadly.

  • BunzeeBear
    BunzeeBear 29 days ago

    I don't think 2 or 3 months is a direct copy cat. They don't have time to "flesh out the concept". So coincidence? Or there is a Mole...who knew like a year in advance.
    You missed Hulk vs Bulk.
    Dr Strange vs Dr Marvello
    Twinkies vs DingDongs

  • Paulafan5
    Paulafan5 29 days ago

    Isn't Green Arrow just Batman with a Robin Hood motif? And isn't Batman basically Zorro in the 1930s? Rich man who dons a black cape and mask (or cowl) and brings justice to the people. And isn't Thor just a copy of Thor from Norse mythology? LOL. There's a difference between inspired and ripped off. Also, there are only so many "motifs" to go around so there are bound to be similar characters that actually were created independently from each other.

  • Michael Neely

    The vision was the android body of the original human torch. What about when Jack Kirby went to work for Harvey comics and came up with Fighting American . That was a short lived comic book character. And the Blue Beetle by Steve Ditko is a copy of Spiderman when he worked for Marvel. Nighthawk is a copy of Batman. When professor Phineas Horton created the original Human Torch to protect his daughter from German spies the comic character did not last long. Then years later he transformed him into the Vision. And the Vision subroutine caused him to have a fear of fire. The submariner was created in the 30s. In Whiz comics #2 along with Shazam.

    The sentry's origin is so stupid and unoriginal. A serum gave him the power of a thousand exploding sun's?!? Huh how does a serum do this? Just bad writing and a copycat at that. Wow there can be only one superman, these companies horrible writing proves it should have stayed that way. Gladiator is the only one on that list that is actually original and interesting. His powers are based on his mental state/ confidence.

    THIS GUY, is a DC fan, since every comparison is Marvel's hero being invented after DC's, and since there are DC ripoffs of Marvel heroes listed. This could have been a better with the advent of more Image characters, in which case it's easy to understand one-sidedness against Image 'clonings'. We are overdue for a new major comic book company, BTW, which seem to come every 25-30 years... AND WE NEED ONE!

    *2 THINGS:* THING 1) Copycat characters are quite the norm, a thing that goes back and forth between comic companies. They all share the guilt and thus shall it ever be. The copycat aspect is but one inevitable factor... but thereafter, more interesting aspects are a) who can do the character type better? b) will the original character evolve in response, stand tall or fade? THING 2) Bobbleheads... ensuring males never reach puberty.

    Aquaman was originally a human whose father taught him to breathe underwater(!) Atlantis came much later. I would love to see Aquaman diverge from Namor by deciding to bring democracy to Atlantis. Mr Fantastic and Elongated Man were both derivative of Plastic Man. The Green Lanterns were modeled on EE Smith's Lensmen novels. Justice League did not rip off Avengers: JLA was a revival of DC's 1940s JSA. I don't like the term copycat. These are all archetypes, concepts in the human subconscious that resonate with all of us. The crew of Jason's Argo in Greek myth had heroes from other tales including a super strong man (Hercules), a warrior woman (Atalanta); a speedster, an archer, and a son of sea god. Japanese travelling storytellers told the adventures of a hero called the Golden Bat, who operated from a secret cave. Professor X goes all the way back to Merlin and Gandalf, and is succeded by Obi-an Kenobi, Giles on Buffy and more. Check out storiesaresignposts.blogspot.com/

    It's funny how many characters Marvel "stole" and yet made infinitely more famous, more well known, and more profitable.
    Just because you were the original doesn't mean you're the better version. Just sayin'.
