I’m still a little in shock over this nerdy thing . . .
Because after an extensive inventory of characters, it turns out that Marvel comics has had more teenaged heroes and villains than DC Comics.
Possible because of the Teen Titans being so successful and the lineup being relatively stable for over a decade, while Marvel had Teen team after Teen team with all new casts.
Conversely, there are more teen villains in DC by about the same margin.
Probably for the same reason.
