I was mostly a marvel fan but when i bought all of those I would get the dc ,and pretty much everything else still on the rack .Archie was in my collection too . Still, I always thought marvel was more realistic than dc ,they dealt with societal issues in a way dc never really did back in those days. Marvel was adult reading, dc more simplistic good versus evil with no context or depth .

Yes ,bats was cool because he was actually human with no real superpowers,but I never really liked superman simply because he seemed too perfect and godlike with no flaws . Most marvel hero's had weaknesses and personal issues that made them more vulnerable and thus the stories more believable.
