    Which is BETTER DC or Marvel?

I've always preferred Marvel (and still do).

Given that your question is paired with this image of "changes" I'll be a bit intentionally obtuse and take it at face value: I think that Marvel has done a better job at increasing the diversity of their offerings. \:\-D

A few comments:

Spider-man: Peter Parker is still Spider-man, so this isn't really a change. I would have rather Peter retired and Miles just take over...

Wonder Woman: Not a fan of the new costume.

Thor: My favourite change.

Green Lantern #1: Not a change, since they're both active concurrently.

Green Lantern #2: DC gets reduced points from me for announcing that a character is gay... but only having the guts to apply that storyline to an Earth2 iteration.

Iron Man: Tony Stark is still Iron Man.

Wolverine: I honestly hope that 616 Logan stays dead forever.

Superman #2: Alternate reality iteration; not a real change.

Iceman: This comparison is a bit clumsy, since the 'real' Bobby Drake was still actively Iceman when that 'coming out' scene was published. Having read an interview where Bendis explained his thinking behind revealing Iceman's sexual orientation, I think it's pretty reasonable.

Batgirl: Best costume redesign since Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel.

Marvel Boy/Noh-Varr: Not a change. He just hasn't shaved and isn't wearing a shirt.

She-Hulk: Not a change. Literally the very same character (just depicted in a less cheesecake style and wearing street clothes). The most recent She-Hulk series was fantastically good.

Squirrel Girl: Still the same character, but the costume is a huge improvement (I also prefer the second drawing). The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl might be the best thing Marvel is publishing now.

Ms. Marvel: Probably the best change on the list. Kamala rules.

Starfire: Still the same character. Great costume redesign, though.
