“Can Marvel stop using the Evil Superman trope to sell tickets?

The DC V. Marvel War has been raging since the dawn of the comic books. The two industry goliaths have given the public a list of superhuman beings so iconic and entertaining that no one can help but compare them to each other, and why wouldn’t they?
