The Marvel vs DC flame war has recently seen new conflicts and skirmishes arise - as evidenced by the "Marvel vs. DC" term becoming a recent trending topic on Twitter.
If the very first question/reaction you have is, "This again???" the answer is that there's a least a reason for why this popping up now. With the imminent release of Marvel's highly-anticipated Black Panther movie, it came to light that a group of DC movie fans were planning to sabotage Black Panther's Rotten Tomatoes score. Naturally, that headline sparked an immediate and very triggered reaction from Marvel movie fans, and annoying those level-headed fans caught in the middle of either liking both camps or not caring about either.
Read below for a rundown of "DC vs. Marvel" reactions hitting social media right now:

We had to dig pretty far to find them, but there were fans out there who actually still think the DC Films are doing a better job than Marvel's:

Don't tweet about it if you don't want it to trend ya thick-headed morons 😂— MK💥 (@emmkay101) February 1, 2018
As one fan has pointed out, the irony of all this is that this trending topic is just some kind of twisted echo chamber: it's the fan complaints about the trend that are feeding it! Lesson? Get off Twitter, nerds.
