SORT BY Relevancy
Let me start by saying that I am a huge Marvel fan, and am in no way trying to alienate the Marvel fans out there. However, it's fun to take a look at this stuff from time to time...
Now, over the years there has been a few characters to come out of Marvel that have been suspiciously close to those of DC Comics', and not small ones at that. Marvel are definitely not the only ones guilty of a bit of attribute borrowing as can be seen from DC's clear doppelganger of "The Lizard", "Killer Croc." It can go both ways and I'm sure a lot of people will have different opinions and that's great. Please feel free to leave your comments and opinions in the comment section at the bottom of the page.
Join us as we discuss this weeks new releases and what WB CEO says about Marvel's Movies.

This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, the show that mixes comics and politics. This Monday we're joined by comic creator Ronald Wimberly.
Wimberly has a long career working on numerous series and with publishers such as Marvel, Vertigo, IDW and more! His work has been seen in many comics such as IDW's Black Dynamite, Marvel's She-Hulk, BOOM!'s Dead Letters, and so much more. His 2012 Vertigo release Prince of Cats, which he wrote and provided art, is a hip-hop retelling of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

After Sony attempted to reboot its “Spider-Man” franchise with Andrew Garfield as the web slinger, the studio is ready to give it a third try, this time with Kevin Feige, the man who has produced 10 consecutive blockbusters for Marvel Studios.
A deal to free up Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe, starting in 2017, is a clear admission by Sony that its superhero strategy with one of the most popular comicbook heroes around simply isn’t working.
That’s especially true at a time when the studio is desperate for some major film franchises. Struggling with one of the comicbook industry’s most popular superheroes was starting to get embarrassing — especially when “Guardians of the Galaxy,” starring a cast of misfits unknown to most moviegoers, broke out as a bigger hit in 2014 than the last “Spider-Man” movie when it made $774 million. “The Amazing Spider Man 2″ earned nearly $709 million worldwide.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ just wasn’t the billion-dollar hit that Sony’s Amy Pascal had been looking for last year — and needed to be in order to keep full control over the character. That movie became the lowest grossing film of Sony’s five Spidey films to date, and forced the studio to instantly start rethinking its plans for the character, even giving up a piece of the franchise.
Join us tonight as we discuss how the Marvel's Spider-Man will affect DC Movie Universe. We will also discuss CONVERGENCE and other DC News!
Today at a live press event at Midtown Comics in New York City moderated by Marvel PR man Chris D’Lando, Marvel Comics’ Executive Editor Tom Brevoort and Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso announced that the Marvel Universe will smash together with the Ultimate Universe and will be replaced by Battleworld -- a mashup of many different Marvel realities.
Take a moment to compose yourself.
This huge development has been in the works for some time in Jonathan Hickman’s years-long Avengers saga. The heroes have been trying to stop a series of universe-ending “incursions” where two universes collide with one another. The inciting incident to May’s eight-part Secret Wars event will be when the heroes fail to stop the regular and Ultimate universes from crashing together. The resulting Battleworld will the Marvel Universe going forward.
Tonight we will discuss the new issues released by DC COMICS this week. Also how much of an impact did Marvel's Phase 3 announcement did over DC Film Universe announcmenet. Join us tonight at 8:30 PM PST / 11:30 PM EST.
