When it comes to roles based on release date, Marvel (or rather Marvel Comics) is DC’s junior when one company launched in 1939, the other launched in 1934. Therefore, Marvel has many characters. must learn, even copy from the big brother. The Screen Rant page has compiled the most prominent “human-like” cases of Marvel based on the DC universe.
Black Cat copy Catwoman
Debuted in 1940, Catwoman – Catwoman has become a famous female character of DC when appearing continuously next to Batman, even becoming his love. Possessing the ability and temperament of a cat, Miao Nu is a unique and charming female general with a supple and flexible body. After nearly 40 years, Marvel has released a character identical to Catwoman – Black Cat related to Spider-Man. However, Black Cat is difficult to separate from the shadow of Catwoman.
Doctor Strange copied Doctor Fate
Even the famous character of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Doctor Strange is also considered a product “learning” from a DC character. Doctor Fate debuted the same year as Catwoman, an archaeologist and later a doctor. Doctor Fate possesses Nabu’s hat, magic cape and super “magic shooting” ability. It sounds familiar when in 1963, a quite similar version but called Doctor Strange officially appeared at Marvel. Now, both characters have been portrayed on the big screen, but Doctor Strange is gaining more popularity.
Whizzer & Quicksilver copy The Flash
With an age of about 6 decades, The Flash is a special character no less than Superman or Batman in the superhero field. Referring to The Flash, everyone remembers a mischievous guy running extremely fast, wearing a red outfit from head to toe with a lightning bolt symbol in the middle of his chest. The Flash actually has many versions, with the earliest character being Jay Garrick – a member of the Justice Association born in 1940. Also in 1940, but a little later, Marvel introduced the character Whizzer and aroused. debate about duplication. But the most “noisy” case was the mutant Quicksilver in the 1960s. However, no character was able to “surpass” The Flash in any area.
Mockingbird clones Black Canary
After having a pair of cats, Marvel and DC continue to compete on… birds. In 1947, DC’s Black Canary character was born and was loved by audiences for her superior martial arts abilities, as well as an interesting life story that gave her the ability to scream out sound waves called “the cry of a falcon.” oats”. By 1980, Marvel’s Mockingbird appeared and had a development process that was not much different from Black Canary.
Hawkeye copied Green Arrow
DC’s Green Arrow character debuted in 1941, and was once considered to be inspired by the famous Robin Hood character. Green Arrow uses his sharp eyes like a falcon, along with his superior ability to use a bow and arrow to defeat the bad guys and help the weak. 13 years later, Marvel’s Hawkeye was born with the same image as Green Arrow. The difference between the two characters probably comes from the background, when the DC character is quite rich and the Marvel character used to be a criminal.
Sentry copies Superman
Not only is a symbol of DC, Superman is also a symbol of superheroes in general and is the first superhero ever present in world popular culture. So it’s no surprise that Superman has been copied many times, including Marvel’s version of Sentry. Sentry is just over 20 years old, possessing the same details as Superman such as super strength, flying, cape, and especially the big S on his costume.
Thanos copied Darkseid
As the supervillain that once made the big screen “false” in the Marvel movies, Thanos could not escape the fate of a “copy” of another DC character. Debuting just 3 years before Thanos, Darkseid is the character that goes first. Possessing a terrifyingly massive body, super strength, intelligence and unbelievable strength, Darkseid is one of DC’s most powerful villains and a tyrant of the universe and has an ambition to dominate like no other. plain. Despite possessing the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos is still believed to be unable to defeat Darkseid, while Darkseid sometimes does not need to use his hands.
Revenge squad copy Justice League
This is definitely the most “bad joke” copy of Marvel that even Stan Lee is not afraid to share. During a golf outing together, Martin Goodman (of Marvel) heard Jack Liebowitz (of DC) share how proud he is of his side’s superhero squads, including Justice League. . Hearing that, Goodman ran back to the company and told Stan Lee, then asked Stan Lee to come up with the same squads. And so The Avengers – The Avengers was born and became the successful premise of not only comic books but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
