Get to Know The Recent Marvel and DC TV Shows On Home Screens

Marvel has been a rival of DC Comics ever since. Two American comic publishers that’s really been part of our childhood days. In order to know these two rivals in comic publishing, let’s take some short infos regarding their origins. Marvel has been founded by Martin Goodman in 1939, and it was originally called Timely Comics, initially Timely Publications. Then, by early 1950s it was changed to Atlas Comics, that later became Marvel Comics in 1960s. 

In 2009, The Walt Disney Company acquired Marvel Entertainment, Marvel Worldwide’s parent company. Marvel’s modern incarnation dates from 1961, the year that the company launched The Fantastic Four and other superhero titles created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and many others. Marvel counts among its characters such well-known superheroes as Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Deadpool, Wolverine, Daredevil, Ms. Marvel, and Ant-Man, such teams as the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Inhumans, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men, and antagonists such as Doctor Doom, Red Skull, Green Goblin, Thanos, Ultron, Doctor Octopus, Magneto, Venom, and Loki.

Marvel’s headquarter is at 135 W. 50th Street, New York City, with Stan Lee as the Chairman Emeritus, Dan Buckley as the President, Isaac Perlmutter as the CEO, and Joe Quesada as the CCO. On the other hand, DC Comics is the publishing unit of DC Entertainment, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc., a division of Time Warner.  Originally in Manhattan at 432 Fourth Avenue, but in 2015 the DC Comics has moved its headquarter at Burbank, California. It was founded in 1934 by the name National Allied Publications by Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson. DC Comics as one of the largest and oldest American comic book companies that produces material featuring numerous well-known heroic characters including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg, Static, Zatanna, and Shazam. 

The initials “DC” came from the company’s popular series Detective Comics, which featured Batman’s debut and subsequently became part of the company’s name. DC is currently run by Diane Nelson as the President, Bob Harras as the Editor in Chief, and Jim Lee and Dan Didio as Co-publishers.    So back to their respective TV shows that recently gaining high ratings (though some has already finished its last season), I’m going to feature all of them with trailers so you can pick your vote too. So I have here 6 TV shows from each of them. So get to know them as you watch in their respective trailers as short prologues. This is a fray of votes between Marvel and DC.
