Two years ago (has it really been two years?!) in honor of March Madness here in the States, I did a Top Superhero Team Tournament (which the Avengers won easily). This year, with March Madness back, though I’m getting a late start, I decided to do a tournament to decide the top decade between the Big Two, i.e. Marvel and DC.
The first round matchups are just Marvel vs. DC for each decade of the 1940’s through the 2010’s. I’m not quite sure yet how to determine the matchups for the subsequent rounds, though it’s my goal to have the two “best” decades not meet until the finals.
I'll leave each round's polls open for about a week.
This one closes March 11, 6 AM EST.
So which company's output do you like better - 00's Marvel or 00's DC?

I'm going with DC, but not for their superhero titles. Starman was the only decent one, for my tastes and it wrapped up in 2001. JSA started well, but after the first two years, the bloom was off the rose, for me. Marvel had a few sporadic things; but, nothing I read with any regularity. I was mainly in the indie camp from the late 90s onward.
What little I've read of the Big Two's output from the noughties alienated me. The only stuff I enjoyed for certain were the Spider-Girl comics.

"I still regard Jesus Christ today as the chief focus of my perspective on God but not to the exclusion of other religious perspectives. God's reality is not bound by one manifestation of the divine in Jesus but can be found wherever people are being empowered to fight for freedom. Life-giving power for the poor and the oppressed is the primary criterion that we must use to judge the adequacy of our theology, not abstract concepts."
