Lots of the golden age comics have "perfect" heroes.

The Human Torch? Captain America? Colossus? Sub Mariner? Squirrel Girl?

I put question marks because I don't read in depth on any of these characters but have seen various comics/media on them and nothing to suggest they aren't sane, calm and happy.
#22 to #19 - Rascal (01/31/2014) [-]
Human Torch is an attention whore, Captain America is a fish out of temporal water that continuously struggles with modernity, Colossus is a Russian (enough said), Sub Mariner hated humanity with a passion for a while, and I know nothing about Squirrel Girl but she sounds ******* stupid so let's just go with that.
User avatar #70 to #22 - IamSofaKingdom (01/31/2014) [-]
Attention whore does not stop you from being sane or happy, being Russian just makes you braver, not sure what you are implying there (also he lives int he US so he can't suffer from Russian economy or leadership) and Squirrel girl is happy and overpowered so I feel you oversimplified it a bit.

Squirrel Girl beat Doom in her first ever appearance and saved Iron Man, and since has done other cool **** like defeating Thanos

While DC has characters like Superman who is just about perfect in every way. That's why I tend to like Marvel a bit better.

Wow really? Superman is definitely not perfect he once got into a fight with captain marvel about whose the bigger boyscout
User avatar #25 to #4 - zombiebacon ONLINE (01/31/2014) [-]
That's actually why I don't like Marvel too much; like half of their popular lineup is invincible. Look at Hulk, Wolverine, and Deadpool, three of their most popular heroes and only the Hulk actually has a legitimate weakness (Calming down). DC has been nerfing their heroes for years to make them less "perfect." I don't want to sound angry or anything, but when someone says that Superman is perfect, it just tells me that they've never really read much of his comics.
User avatar #41 to #25 - migzdgreat (01/31/2014) [-]
In the new Wolverine movie Wolverine actually almost died, his weakness is adamantium, I don't know about Wade though but I'm pretty sure he can be killed just as easily as you can find Kryptonite easily, Wade was obliterated once but he was brought back to life same goes with Hulk.

The Marvel line up isn't as flawless as you think no one just really bothers killing of the main characters permanently just like you wouldn't kill Superman and not make comics of him being revived or something for the chaching.

You really want to know the most powerful thing the heroes have in common? Consumerism

i know. superman kills one hitler basicly somebody as strong as him. who wants to destroy the human race already killed like 20 million people. and can easily break out of prision and people are like omg don't kill him. put him in prision so he can break out and kill million more like my family and me hur dur. killing 1 is worst then letting 20 million die.
#23 to #4 - Rascal (01/31/2014) [-]
Not to mention all the character inconsistency. Some of the media Superman is in has him as a paragon of absolute moral superiority, some has him as a control freak, some has him as a complete ass, and some have him act like a sadistic ************ . In every single case he has the depth and complexity of a ******* brick.

**** DC. It's pretty much a massive power fantasy written by a twelve-year-old. If they did come out with something good, it has been massively overshadowed by all of the **** .
User avatar #36 to #23 - zombiebacon ONLINE (01/31/2014) [-]
That's simply because all the Marvel movies are written and directed by the same people, and overseen by the character's creator. DC gives full creative rights to the directors of its media. They have many movies and games all made by different people.
Marvel keeps things in line, DC gives creative freedom.

I prefer Marvel aswell.
Though, The Joker and Harley Quinn are my favourite villains.
User avatar #6 to #4 - Bruda (01/31/2014) [-]
Superman isn't really perfect his weakness is a type of rock that existed on his planet and somehow every bad guy and their mother has it. If anyone is perfect it'd be Batman he's not the strongest but seeing how a human is able to go toe to toe against such powerful villains and I find that hollow.
#7 to #6 - swagloon (01/31/2014) [-]
And Magic or Sea Water; anything to try to make this boy scout not op. But I meant more on the person itself. Example Ant Man from marvel, was an abusive husband beat his wife bad enough to be hospitalized. . After his wife died he basically went mad. And that's supposed to be a hero.

And I know what you mean about Batman; a punch from Darkside should break his body if not kill him. And yet he just gets up.

You are not alone.
I'm a DC fanboy... every single issue of Marvel entertainment I've tried had me sighing. They inject humor where it doesn't belong while DC at least keeps a sober tone when it should and doesn't try to take a situation too lightly, while when Marvel does it, it feels forced as **** . Plus, they're boring to me. I want my comics to have a hint of realism, and a giant **** YOU to reality. I'm using them to escape reality... I'll take beings that can break planets with their bare fists over a mutant any day. Marvel doesn't go over the top enough for me. I can understand people that prefer Marvel, I'm just not one of them.
The movies are fun as hell, but are forgetable (or however you spell that). I don't remember a single thing from the Avengers except one or two punchlines, and the only good thing I've liked about Iron Man was his personality. Thor and Captain America (that suddenly remembered it's an action movie in the middle of it and ranked up the pace of the movie too abruptly) were just boring... honestly, the only Marvel movie I liked and would watch again was the Hulk with Edward Norton, which pretty much invalidates every opinion I have because everybody dislikes that movie... it just seemed that it kept the tone adequate. Bruce is a man that transform into a monster if he so much as feels. It's a serious problem and they act like it is throughout the movie, while in the avenger they use him as a punchline by the end because that's what the script wants. I also very much liked Man of Steel, but maybe that's because Superman is Jesus to me... it's what I'd like one day to be like. He isn't perfect, but he strives to be. He has moral issues with his actions and purpose on Earth and just wants to do the good thing, which most decent people would do. He also isn't overpowered... the entire DCU is overpowered... he fights beings as strong or stronger than him...
Also, **** Justice League: War. It's the only DC animated movie I hate.

tl;dr: DC!!
User avatar #33 to #24 - angelious (01/31/2014) [-]
while i agree with you that dc is superior to marvel in terms of quality i must disagree on few parts:

1.marvel universe is actually considered stronger than dc ( even the mutants have op beings that can destroy planets with their mind(magneto) and beings whose telepathy is galaxy wide(professor x) and why do you hate justice league war? i thought it was a great movie,specially loved how they didnt overwank batman and made superman more badass
User avatar #34 to #33 - payseht (01/31/2014) [-]
they were just out of character. Batman was overpowered... you can't just take a ring off of someone's finger and them not noticing, he fought parademons that are supposed to be superhuman and won, Shazam was a jerk and too much of a kid, and they replaced Aquaman with him for some reason, Superman was horrible and his only characteristic was "he's powerful hurr durr" (he killed Dessad... I'd expect some regret for taking another life; in the comics pre Nu52 he an hero'd after taking a life... more or less, and even in Man of Steel you could see he regretted it pretty bad), the heroes set to mutilate Darkseid, and Superman shot his lasers into the guy's open wound. Oh, and the Flash, one of my favorites, barely did anything and wasn't developed in the slightest as a person. Basically, these are not the heroes I knew... the action was good, and Green Lantern, too. The humor was alright.
As for Marvel, okay. I'll give you that. I haven't read anything of the sort, so it's my fault. I tried getting into Marvel.. the more comics the better, you know? The only character I found interesting enough to follow was Deadpool. Marvel excels at humor, but didn't really get me on board with regard to interesting characters or stories. Maybe I've just been reading the wrong things.
User avatar #37 to #34 - angelious (01/31/2014) [-]
they rebooted the universe and made tweaks to the character models.superman is supposed to be young and more headstrong in here.and i kinda like how cocky he was(makes him more "humane") also taking ring of somebodys finger is easier than you think it is.just look up any con artist that shows people his tricks.they literally can steal anything from you no matter what.and yeah marvel tends to be boring.only reason why people love it so much is because of the movies.

and what comes to flash, there were like 7 heroes in the movie,they just didnt have the time

and i too kinda hated how they replaced aquaman and martian manhunter(two who need more puplicity rather than being sideshow characters) with captain marvel and cyborg.and wonder woman did act weird.and somehow gl seemed a little...noobish to be the greatest lantern there is.

but outside of that.i loved darkseid i loved the action the heroes outside of few flaws were great and it was an enjoyable movie

I've been a fan of Batman since I was a kid, and I prefer the other heroes of the DC universe above most of marvel. I mean, an Iron Man suit is cool, but I'd go for a power ring everytime.
People always complain about superman being perfect, as in he's not beatable, but they forget the Hulk is also indestructible. So every universe has their overpowered heroes but I just like the DC heroes more.

In short; you are not alone

I unno, while this works for most cases this is the main reason why I didn't like Ironman 3.    
They tried to make Tony Stark flawed when he is not a flawed character at all, in some cases it's better to have a character who thinks he's perfect get knocked down a few peg.

I don't know what you've been smoking while watching the movies, but Tony Stark is all kinds of flawed. He's cocky, overconfident, and he pretty much created every villain that he faced in his own movies.
User avatar #46 to #43 - ZeDoodler (01/31/2014) [-]
Right, and the best way to handle a character like that is not give him PTSD.

Because of those traits he has, he'd be the type that I see walking around in parade dedicated to his honor acting like a bad ass then having the one fan just be like "my dad still died in the attack ass hole." Then have Tony realize the errors of his ways. Hell, it would've been cool if that happened to the little sidekick that followed him around the whole movie. PTSD just didn't make sense to Tony's character.
User avatar #47 to #46 - Bad Man (01/31/2014) [-]
It wasn't PTSD that was troubling him, it was a panic attack from almost dying in outer space, knowing that no one would ever find his body. It was a ****** plot point, yeah, but it wasn't entirely unbelievable.
User avatar #49 to #47 - ZeDoodler (01/31/2014) [-]
Which is essentially PTSD bud, but his issues when deeper than not being able to find his body in space.

For any other character, I would've believed it. But Tony really is the perfect ass hole and he's not the type that gets hung up on "almost failing." He's the type that brags way too much for "barely winning."

In the comics he has a pretty bad alocohal problem so I wouldn't go as far as to say he isn't flawed
#53 to #51 - ronnorc (01/31/2014) [-]
Yeah, and since he's too popular now, they'll never touch that issue in the movies. Sad, too cause that's one of the oat interesting things they could do with the character. And you can see they clearly wanted to do it if you look closely at bits in the first one. pic unrelated
User avatar #55 to #53 - dafukdude (01/31/2014) [-]
They hint at it slightly in all the movies he's in cos I think he always has a least one drink in each.
User avatar #57 to #55 - ronnorc (01/31/2014) [-]
Exactly, but since he's so popular now they won't be able to explore it cuz THINK OF DA CHILDRUN. Would've made a better plot than Iron Man 3, imo.
#58 to #57 - dafukdude (01/31/2014) [-]
When I saw that they had the Mandarin I was so excited but then that withered and died as the film went on. They shouldn't have turned him into a joke since he was one of Iron Man's main enemies
