Marvel or Dc we all got to agree, growing up we’ve all read our favorite superhero comics, but there were always some point in the history fans couldn’t stand the replacement of there favorite superheroes. Although there are some exceptional times when they really enjoy the better and improvised version of those old fragile ones but other times it wasn’t a great idea to replace the original characters, which also straight away led to the downfall of some really great comic series due to disliking by fans and increased the demand for returning the original ones back in the series ( because obviously there’s no replacement for the original essence of our favorite character )
