The Marvel v. DC competitors has been occurring for years, and plenty of comparisons between every firm’s superheroes have been made. Right here we check out superheroes from DC and Marvel which have related superpowers
Marvel and DC have created so many alternative superheroes, respectively, that it might have been nearly unimaginable for similarities between a few of their superheroes to not exist. The query then turns into, did one firm copy the opposite, or are some similarities there by likelihood? This won’t be an exhaustive listing by any means, and it’ll not embody superheroes that solely have a superpower that’s so widespread that there are lots of superheroes with it (eg, super-strength superhero t-shirt).
Supergirl vs. Rogue – Not all the things is equivalent between these superheroines, however a battle between the 2 can be very shut. Supergirl has laser imaginative and prescient and velocity, whereas Rogue can steal powers from one other individual. So perhaps the winner can be whoever might use their unique energy(s) first. Supergirl undoubtedly got here earlier than Rogue, so we now have to offer a strike to Marvel for being about 20 years late on this mix of superpowers.
Banshee vs. Black Canary – Each characters have a notable “sonic cry” that may injury enemies’ listening to, and Banshee’s can transfer bodily objects. Banshee might be the cooler of the 2, since he can even fly, however Black Canary is extra well-known (particularly due to her look within the present Smallville) and has an look in comics 20 years sooner than Banshee. As soon as once more, DC has Marvel beat.
Dr. Destiny vs. Spider-Man – Wait a minute — what do these two have in widespread? OK, so it is a minor part of every of their arsenal of superpowers, however they each have precognition. Spider-Man’s is far much less particular, solely alerting him to hazard. However Dr. Destiny’s is rather more thorough and far additional into the longer term than Spider-Man’s. DC: three; Marvel: zero.
Kitty Pryde vs. Martian Manhunter – A battle between the 2 would not be a contest, nevertheless it’s nonetheless an fascinating comparability. Martian Manhunter has so many superpowers that it is exhausting to maintain monitor of them, whereas Kitty solely has the ability that the 2 maintain in widespread: the power to undergo strong matter. And but Kitty nonetheless retains a considerably outstanding place on the world’s most well-known superhero staff. Kudos to Marvel for making her a key character regardless of a comparatively late look (1980), nevertheless it’s the DC consultant on this comparability that is been round longer.
Iceman vs. Mr. Freeze – There are a lot of characters within the superheroes universe with the power to control ice, however these are essentially the most well-known in Marvel and DC, respectively. Backside line: Iceman can go with out having an ice-gun and ice-suit. Iceman wins, stopping a shut-out by DC.
Regardless that I personally am extra of a Marvel fan than DC, in most of those comparisons it is the DC superhero with the benefit. However I assume the efficiency of those two superhero powerhouses cannot be primarily based on this issue.
