There has been a massive influx of comic book movies over the last 20 years. If you didn't know that then you need to get out more. All these new movies range from hits like Iron Man, Wonder Woman, and Avengers Infinity War, plus not such big hits like The Fantastic 4, Incredible Hulk, and The Green Lantern.

It isn't surprising that more people recognize the character symbols of Marvel characters (whether you know they are Marvel or DC) because the Marvel movies have critically done much better than the DC big screen attempts. When you look at the symbols for each character, how many do you recognize?
