Five Stupid Things About DC Comics

The biggest stupid thing about DC Comics is their overall inferiority complex, which causes them to act out. Marvel has almost always outsold DC, and to be fair, Marvel's comic line was overall much better than DC's (at least pre-Crisis). That's what leads DC to try to out-Marvel Marvel, by having heroes who are grittier, angstier, and (if Geoff Johns is writing) dismember-ier. They're like the 14-year-old who's trying way too hard to prove he's not a kid any more.

DC needs to accept what they are (a funnybook company) and they need to celebrate what makes their characters work (they're more about crimebusting and less about whinging). And that goes double for Captain Marvel, who is always the first to lose all his charm when Marvelization sets in.
