If you’re like us, we love comics and all the movies and television shows they have inspired. DC Comics and Marvels Comics are the two heavy-hitters that have brought some of the most famous characters in comics come to life.
From Spider-Man to The Joker, these companies have produced the best in heroes and villainy.
DC and Marvel have competed for readers’ and viewers’ attention since the 1930s, and while there is something for everyone, there are definitely others who prefer one to the other. The companies brought forth the Golden Age of Comics, but both have created unforgettable characters.
So Batman or Superman? Wonder Woman or Ms. Marvel? Iron Man or Aquaman? We have a special quiz for you! Based on how you answer these questions, we can tell you if you prefer Marvel or DC. Let’s see how you do!
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
The emergence of daily newspapers led to the simultaneous emergence of comic strips, and the medium became increasingly popular. In 1934, the comic book was developed, and National Allied Publications (which became DC Comics) began publishing them. The company created the character Doctor Occult, the oldest DC Comics character still in the DC universe. Superman debuted in 1938, which is marked as the beginning of the Golden Age of Comic Books. Batman made his first appearance in 1939.
That same year, Timely Publications, later known as Marvel Comics, got its start, and the first issue featured the android Human Torch and Namor the Sub-Mariner. In 1941, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby teamed up to create Captain America. Stanley Lieber was hired as a general office assistant in 1939 and later began writing and editing under the name of Stan Lee. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby went on to create characters such as Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
