Clash of the Comics Titans

The Washington Post has a great article comparing/contrasting DC and Marvel. You have to register to read the whole thing but that's free and it's a nice look on how different they used to be and how, in many ways, they're pretty similar these days.

Here was my favorite of the early contrasts in the editorial:

DC invented places to go -- Metropolis, Gotham City, Paradise Island.

In the Marvel universe, New York is New York, and it's nothing but trouble.

DC: It was always the Fourth of July.

Marvel: It was always Halloween.

I like that. Both very different holidays, but both fun.
