There exists a big issue with this picture. First of all what is it trying to say? Goku can kill the entire Marvel and DC universe all on his lonesome? The Dragonball saga is superior to the Marvel and DC universe because Goku is stronger?
Fallacious arguments all the same and I’ll explain to you why. First off I want to preface this by saying I love the Dragonball saga (and when I say Dragonball saga I mean Dragonball, Z-GT) because it was just what I wanted to see at a pre-pubescent age. Fast, explosive, violence. When you watch the right thing at the right age, you’ll always have a nostalgic attachment to it, this we can’t deny.
However, in the Dragonball saga we see the vast majority of issues, if not all issues are solved in one way. Fast, explosive, violence. Let’s look at the questions I have postured, “Can Goku kill the entire universe on his lonesome?” My answer is no, I have seen characters such as Thanos control reality as a God, ascended to a level where he could simply will you out of existence. You cannot fight someone who can literally think you away. But let’s say Goku could kill the entirety of both universes, all it proves is that Goku is stronger, more powerful. So what? Does that automatically place higher stock in the Dragonball saga? Goku is the strongest therefore Dragonball is better? Nah. GTFO
I’ve been reading comic-books since I could read, now in my twenty plus years of reading comic-books I have seen problems in Marvel and DC handled with things besides hyper-violence. Returning to Thanos, after he became God and destroyed reality, killing everything, and dismantling the entire universe, he won. But he also lost, he became God of a void. It was his desperate final attempt to impress the only person he’s ever loved, Mistress Death. The abstract personality of Death itself. After realizing she would never love him, and also realizing he was God of nothingness, a void, he restored the universe. Philosophy and higher levels of thinking solved this existential crisis. In contrast, Dragonball hardly ever solved things without the use of violence.
All in all, if you place a value judgement on something, know what you’re talking about, research the topic. Most Dragonball heads I’ve met only have watched the Dragonball saga and seen the superhero movies that are flooding Hollywood today. Their knowledge is weak. I too have watched Dragonball through Z and GT. I also read comic-books, it’s been a lifelong passion as a matter of fact. As much as I love the Dragonball saga because of my nostalgic attachment, I do realize as I take a step back in my adult years, it has always lacked depth. Whilst Marvel and DC stories continue to change the world through the deep stories they tell that discuss issues other than the propagation of high speed violence
Thank you, that is all.
