I have always read both Marvel and DC, and honestly, any comic that came my way. But money was pretty hard to come by as a kid, so comics were a treat.And when you only get comics every now and then, you get choosy about which ones you read, and as a kid, I usually wound up getting DC if I got something superhero related. Mostly because I was a huge Batman fan, and the DC characters (mostly) always seemed cooler to me as a kid. When I got into high school, a couple of friends of mine get me reading X-Men and all of the related titles, and another friend got me into Daredevil. From then on, I pretty much have spent my money equally between the two companies.
