Marvel vs. DC is the great comic book argument that no one will ever resolve. It’s just impossible to choose. But obviously everyone has their own preference. So how popular is your preference where you live?
US Dish decided to answer that question. Using Google Trends, they examined whether Marvel or DC was more popular among residents of all 50 U.S. states. Here were the results:
As you can see, Marvel is the big winner according to this map. Although it’s possible Marvel only won because they have a new movie coming out every single month (or so it feels like) so people just tend to Google it more.
US Dish also examined who the most popular superhero was in every state, and in this category DC got a little more love. Here were some of the notable states they found:
Indiana picking Martian the Manhunter is a pretty unique choice, as is Nevada going with Nightwing. Also, gotta love Hawaii, our only island state, picking Aquaman.
But don’t worry everyone! There’s room for both Marvel and DC in everyone’s hearts! You don’t need to pick just one! But we know you will anyway.
