  • listen kids cheating is wrong it's
  • always better to work your hardest and
  • get good grades by yourself that's what
  • your superhero role models would do but
  • not their creators
  • everybody loves superheroes DC Marvel it
  • doesn't matter they're all pretty great
  • what many fans may not know is how often
  • the two companies pletely rip each other
  • off the comics industry is a pretty
  • cutthroat business creators have no
  • qualms about stealing ideas from other
  • comics
  • while both companies frequently do this
  • DC has some really over-the-top examples
  • here art in Marvel characters DC copy
  • [Music]
  • make way for Captain America commander
  • Steele tell me if this sounds familiar
  • it's world war 2 things aren't going
  • well for the Allied forces a young buck
  • eager to serve his country volunteers
  • for a secret experiment to give him
  • superpowers he then becomes a superhero
  • for the Allied forces the name of that
  • superhero no we're not talking about the
  • First Avenger Captain America we're
  • talking about commander Steele Marine
  • Henry Haywood was injured during a
  • battle with the super villain Baron
  • blitzkrieg he then underwent an
  • experiment that gave him super-strength
  • enhanced speed and invincibility he's
  • basically like if Steve Rogers got all
  • of his superpowers but didn't need this
  • yield because he was invulnerable the
  • only difference is cat entered the world
  • all the way back in 1941
  • commander Steele didn't come about until
  • 1978 this was long after Marvel had
  • revived Captain America from the pesky
  • block of ice well the good captain is a
  • big movie character now commander Steele
  • has to settle for the small screen he
  • had a brief stint in legends of tomorrow
  • the characters grandson Nate or citizen
  • Steele is a regular on the show however
  • looks like you win this round see
  • Rodgers the kings of Atlantis last year
  • the DCE you successfully got us all to
  • forget that horrible Justice League
  • movie James ones Aquaman
  • was an incredibly fun action movie the
  • made an ocean load of money Game of
  • Thrones actor Jason Momoa washed away
  • all remnants of the kind of lame Aquaman
  • of yesterday this was the birth of a
  • true action hero the original king of
  • Atlantis well not so much if you aren't
  • a comic fan and you hear the phrase
  • Submariner you probably think I'm
  • talking about a sandwich fans know that
  • this is actually the name of a classic
  • character named Ward like Aquaman he is
  • the son of a human sea captain in an
  • Atlantean royal he went on to become a
  • superhero to fight the axis for the
  • Allied forces it's hard to believe but
  • this character not only predates Aquaman
  • but Captain America as well both of
  • those characters were introduced in 1941
  • Namor beat them both the publication in
  • 1939 well name or maybe the original
  • comic king of Atlantis he's definitely
  • not the greatest he's known in the
  • Marvel Universe for me
  • extremely difficult there are multiple
  • examples of him flirting with characters
  • like Sue Storm and Emma Frost while both
  • of them were relationships - he's also
  • been a villain more than a few times
  • Aquaman may be the second one to wear
  • the coral covered crown but there's no
  • doubt which one wears it better that
  • other spider guy have you ever wanted to
  • see Batman fight spider-man it sounds
  • like it would be the coolest movie ever
  • we might have to wait until Disney and
  • navigable Evite's Warner Brothers or
  • something like that to happen luckily
  • you can see Batman fight someone pretty
  • close the Batman villain black spider
  • was introduced in 1976 Erich Needham was
  • an ex-con who accidentally shot his
  • father during a robbery gone wrong
  • afterward he became a bloodthirsty
  • vigilante he dressed in a strange sort
  • of spider outfit and swung through the
  • buildings of Gotham he's basically a
  • darker spider-man but one who's directly
  • responsible for the tragic loss of his
  • father figure if any of this sounds like
  • a stretch just watch his stint on the TV
  • show Young Justice this show makes no
  • effort to pretend he isn't just a more
  • intense Spidey even does the iconic
  • upside down one thing not only that but
  • he's voiced by Josh Keaton you know the
  • guy who voiced spider-man in the show
  • spectacular spider-man they aren't even
  • trying to be subtle wasps and bees last
  • year audiences were surprised with how
  • great ant-man the wasp actually was
  • Evangeline Lilly stole the show as a
  • titular super heroine Paul Rudd is great
  • and all but that one fight where she
  • runs on a knife was the best part the
  • movie also introduced original wasp
  • Janet Van Dyne this character has been
  • an important part of Marvel since her
  • debut in 1963 she was actually part of
  • the original Avengers lineup as well not
  • only that but she even comes up with the
  • name for the team DC came up their own
  • take on the power set in 1977 the
  • character of Karen Beecher was
  • introduced a year earlier as the
  • girlfriend of Teen Titans the herald
  • eventually she becomes a hero in her own
  • right that's bumblebee she could shrink
  • shoot blasters and even had tiny insect
  • wings that allowed her to fly sometimes
  • comic companies try to hide their
  • plagiarism from bumblebee they just
  • ripped off wasp powers completely
  • but mobi does have a distinction of her
  • own though she was DC's first official
  • african-american female superhero since
  • then she's appeared on several animated
  • series Teen Titans and Young Justice
  • have had guest roles for the character
  • she has yet to make a live-action
  • appearance but it's only a matter of
  • time maybe now that we know how cool the
  • wasps can be bumblebee will get her own
  • chance of the big screen behold a ripoff
  • Martin made comic-book history in 1966
  • when the cover for Fantastic Four number
  • 48 were told one of the universe's most
  • fearsome villains behold Galactus
  • Galactus is a cosmic giant who travels
  • in universe devouring planets over the
  • years he's made a name for himself is
  • one of the most powerful beings in the
  • universe no matter how many times he's
  • tried he's never been able to devour
  • earth though those pesky superheroes
  • sure do know how to ruin a good meal
  • unfortunately Galactus is only on screen
  • appearance is in the terrible Fantastic
  • Four rise of the Silver Surfer and that
  • movie he's just some sort of dust cloud
  • hopefully he'll get another shot now the
  • MCU has the rights to use them DC has a
  • version of this character who isn't as
  • beloved the character imperiex was
  • introduced in the year 2000 like
  • Galactus imperiex is a giant cosmic
  • entity that destroys worlds he was the
  • center of the DC event our worlds at war
  • he really hasn't gotten a lot of you
  • since probably because he's a shameless
  • ripoff of a much more famous character
  • sometimes that works out and sometimes
  • it absolutely does not things both man
  • and swamp
  • The Swamp Thing is one of the most
  • famous monsters in the DC Universe the
  • Alan Moore character is thought of as
  • one of the best DC runs of all time he's
  • appeared in TV and movies for decades
  • since his creation in 1971 the creature
  • is a hybrid plant human monster he seeks
  • to protect his swamp and the environment
  • from the threat of humans if that sounds
  • pretty cool you're in luck he's getting
  • a new TV show later this year what's
  • weird about Swamp Thing though is he
  • wasn't the first take on this archetype
  • the incredibly similar Man Thing was
  • created by Marvel just a few months
  • earlier Man Thing is also a humanoid
  • swamp monster this character was
  • actually created by Marvel legend Stan
  • we did Stan's the reason that one
  • character must be ripped off of the
  • other the design and origin of the
  • characters are almost identical
  • while Swamp Thing came out after Man
  • Thing who knows which home was conceived
  • first for whatever reason Man Thing has
  • never come close to Swamp things level
  • of popularity while swampy is getting
  • his own TV show they don't expect this
  • counterpart to be joining the MCU
  • anytime soon we are Iron Man Iron Man
  • has long been one of Marvel's most
  • popular characters he's only gotten more
  • loved since Robert Downey jr. 's decade
  • spanning performance as the character
  • it's not a huge surprise that DC would
  • want its own iron suited superhero in
  • the Justice League what's weird is that
  • you think they would have done a better
  • job rocket red is a Russian superhero
  • who was introduced in 1987 over 20 years
  • after Tony Dmitry Pushkin was part of a
  • Russian plan to create their own
  • superhero in some ways he's just as much
  • of a ripoff of Iron Man villain Crimson
  • Dynamo do you remember that
  • controversial Ivan Vanko character from
  • Iron Man 2 that character was an album
  • ation of villains Crimson Dynamo and
  • whiplash rocket red is basically if
  • vodka was nice and became Iron Man
  • instead of being a bird obsessed weirdo
  • surprisingly this character wasn't a
  • flat-out villain he actually ended up
  • joining the Justice League International
  • named despite this the character never
  • really took off like his counterpart
  • this hasn't stopped DC from ripping off
  • Iron Man in other ways though
  • billionaires like Lex Luthor and Batman
  • both used
  • Iron Man style suits heck even the CW
  • Supergirl has an Iron Man suit now
  • apparently if they're all the rage bear
  • a duniya forever
  • last year Marvel movie Black Panther
  • made huge waves not only was it a
  • cultural phenomenon but it went on to
  • get nominated for an Oscar the story of
  • a young to chala fighting for his
  • albicans throne was a surprising hit for
  • audiences everywhere chadwick boseman
  • better get used to doing that Wakanda
  • for everything literally for
  • don't expect the DC version get that
  • kind of a claim though the DC character
  • the Red Lion is a very strange obvious
  • take on black panther Mathew bland is
  • actually a ruthless dictator of the
  • African country bird Union he's mostly
  • known for hiring the villain Deathstroke
  • for evil doings here and there there was
  • also a brief incident involving the
  • Justice League what's weird about the
  • Red Lion is that he's a genuine ripoff
  • of black panther his creator christopher
  • priest is one of the most notable
  • writers for Black Panther his use of the
  • character Everett Ross was a big
  • inspiration for the movie the characters
  • look in history clearly mirror Black
  • Panthers obviously this new character is
  • some sort of commentary on the old beans
  • have been scratching their head so try
  • to figure out just what that commentary
  • could be or maybe you just wanted to
  • have black panther fight the Justice
  • League that's a solid enough reason
  • right there Wolverine but in space
  • Wolverine is one of the most popular
  • Marvel characters ever even before Hugh
  • Jackman killed it as the character fans
  • absolutely adored him apparently DC did
  • too because they pretty much made their
  • own version Lobo was the smash hit of a
  • character when he debuted in 1983 fans
  • loved his grizzled attitude his healing
  • factor and his love for cigars
  • they just didn't notice all these things
  • were lifted right off of Wolverine the
  • creator even admitted that Lobo was
  • basically a wolverine parody Binet
  • sometimes parodies work out you just
  • look at Deadpool or a weird al' yankovic
  • Lobo and Wolverine even got to fight in
  • the limited DC vs. Marvel run of course
  • Wolverine was the winner but it was a
  • good fight it may be a long time before
  • we see Wolverine on the big screen again
  • luckily Lobo will be arriving on the
  • small screen this year he'll join the
  • sci-fi series Krypton for the second
  • season
  • so many Colts so little time when the
  • evil German spy organization Hydra was
  • introduced in Captain America the First
  • Avenger they were kind of lackluster
  • they were something between the
  • stormtroopers from Star Wars and the
  • baddies from Indiana Jones who was
  • hardly an original concept that's why it
  • was so shocking when they returned in
  • Captain America the Winter Soldier the
  • Russo successfully took the campy evil
  • organization and made it into a
  • terrifying counterintelligence network
  • it was really the perfect way to present
  • an organization that's been part of
  • Marvel since 1965 that being said they
  • are the only evil cult II spy team in
  • town
  • DC's Cobra is a very similar concept
  • this snake themed terror group is
  • basically a less Germany flavored Hydra
  • they appeared in 1976 led by the leader
  • who is also named Cobra so basically
  • it's like a Hydra called itself the red
  • skulls what's worse is that this isn't
  • the only one the terror organization
  • hive is also pretty similar to Hydra
  • this team debuted in 1980 as villains
  • for the New Teen Titans they're also a
  • covert terror organization with a
  • serious wildlife MOTU youth that
  • organization is basically a combination
  • of Marvel's Hydra and aim we can debate
  • over which one is better all day but we
  • all know which one is supreme
  • it's definitely Cobra from GI Joe at
  • least that one embraces how wacky it is
  • but I will leave you with this hail
  • Hydra so there are 10 pretty wild

DC Stole These Heroes From Marvel
Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-TheBinger

Fans have been debating which comic company is the best between Marvel and DC for decades. Some prefer characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, The X-Men, and The Avengers. Others love Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Arrow, and The Justice League. The fans that have the most fun, however, are the ones who embrace both companies. There’s nothing wrong with loving the MCU and the new “Aquaman” movie.

What these fans may not know is that these two companies frequently take inspiration from each other. Sometimes, these inspirations are pretty light. Other times, they are blatant rip-offs. No one is upset over Deadpool being inspired by Deathstroke. Some still hold a grudge over whether Thanos is a ripoff of Darkseid or not.

While both companies have done their fair share of ripoffs over the years, DC has some truly mind-blowing examples. Characters like Lobo, Black Spider, and Aquaman are all ripped right out of Marvel comics. Here are 10 Marvel Characters DC Copied, Ranked.
