Links: Comparing DC and Marvel

I'm fascinated* by these comparisons and am going to start keeping track of them all. If you know of any other good ones out there, please let me know and I'll pile 'em in here.

* But without taking sides. 100% of my comic book fandom may go to DC, but I'm not pretending that that's any reflection on Marvel. It's just where my affection happens to lie.

** This is the post that first collected many of these links and spurred me to create this list. Thanks.

I know this post is nearly a year old but it's a fantastic index and I was reminded of it when I saw Big Mike's recent comparison of DC (creating and preserving the social order) and Marvel (critiquing societal ills) whose perspectives reflect their historical origins in the New Deal versus the 60s.
