    Classicly, I think DC did far more humour than Marvel did.


They did stories that were 100% humor. But did they insert humor into stories that were otherwise melodrama? What would be some examples?

Mister Mxyptlx, Bizarro Superman - stories with guys like that would be all humor from start to finish. DC was good at that sort of thing. Marvel typically stayed away from stories like that, though the Impossible Man comes to mind. What Marvel would do is insert gags into otherwise dead serious stories. I don't remember DC doing that until the 80s when Marvel writers left the Bullpen for the Dugout.


I'm not much of a DC guy, but wasn't Clark forever tossing corny one-liners to Lois and Jimmy?
