Much to the delight of riled-up fans on either side of the aisle, brands suddenly started getting involved in debates on Twitter discussing who the premier publisher of the land is. Earlier this week, Wendy's started the trend by claiming Marvel is the superior comic house.
Now, pizza chain Sbarro is getting in on the action — echoing the sentiments previously uttered by Wendy's.

The entire movement can be traced back to comic book writer Gail Simone, who began tweeting at brands earlier in the week to ask them if they preferred reading comics from Marvel or DC. Simply enough, Wendy's responded to Simone with a one-word answer: "Marvel."
Though fans had their initial doubts that the brand hadn't the slightest clue what they were talking about, one of the social media associates for the burger chain took the reins and started discussing various creators and comics with inquiring fans.
Loved Fraction's Hawkeye, The Visions, and was super invested in the original Civil War. Anything with Joe Mad art still gives those super nostalgia vibes. Use the app, so a little behind on super current. Always love reading X-Men, and digging Black Panther.— Wendy's (@Wendys) February 7, 2019
In the best possible response, Jim Lee and Dan DiDio — co-publishers of DC Comics — shared on image on their own social media platforms eating grub from a few of Wendy's most well-known competitors — McDonald's and Burger King.
