The eternal question is whether DC is better than Marvel when it comes to superheroes, storylines and overall POW! BAM! action. Now that films have become a big part of the comic book experience, movie grosses are also evaluated as well. created an infographic in the hopes of answering the question once and for all about which brand has the best movie grosses. Here’s what they wrote about their infographic:

“Which is better Marvel or DC comics? This is one of the oldest and most well known ongoing arguments among comic book fans. We thought we’d take another look at this debate by comparing both of their movie performances at the U.S. box office over the last fifty years and totaling up the dollar receipts on a 2012 inflation adjusted basis. But depending on how you look at it, either of them could be determined triumphant in this analysis as one of them has taken more in total at the box office, while the other has taken more on average per movie.”

You can see the infographic below. What do you think about the infographic? If you have a big stake in this big debate, give your side–which do you think is better, DC or Marvel? (I dip into both comic book companies, myself. Both have their merits.) Give your opinions in the comments section below.
