No life-altering philosophies. No depressing stories. No war crimes or injured puppy pictures. This is where you come at the end of a long day to smile and relax. So sit back, order a refreshing drink and share a laugh with me, your bartender for the evening.
And always remember that age-old, fluorescent green rule of life : An appletini a day keeps the doctor away.

Marvel vs DC Comics Based Movies.


Author's note #1: This is a geek post featuring investment planning and comic books. Yes, exactly what I said. So read at your own peril. 

When people talk about the benefits of long term planning, I always use the example of comic-based movies. It is just a more appealing method to explain to people of my generation, instead of trying to explain the benefits of 9% compounded interest and 8% annual inflation rates, gilt and equity, stocks and bonds. So what is my explanation?

Now, for this to make sense to you, I think I should place the basics on the table right now.
The two chief contenders are DC comics and Marvel comics.

DC Comics includes names like: Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Martian Manhunter and their collective group, the Justice League of America (JLA).


Marvel Comics includes: Spiderman, Daredevil, The X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America and the collective group, the Avengers.
