The characters. I just have a stronger affinity for them than I do Marvel's. Aside from Spidey, I've never felt the tug of any of their characters the way I do DC's.
Why? Because I think the writing, artwork and characters are all generally better than the competition.
Apart from that, no reason.
Are you from Fort Lee, New Jersey?
'Cause you sure ask a lot of questions.
Because Bendis and Quesada aren't in control. Honest answer.
It had superheroes that weren't like Marvel's and the universe seemed more grand. This has all changed now of course, but I still like Aquaman. Can't find him anywhere else.
(Wow, am I really saying that the best thing about the DCU is Aquaman? Yikes. lol)
New Avengers, Morbius The Living Vampire, Scarlet Spider, Iron Man, Fearless Defenders, Fantastic Four, Deadpool Killogy, Savage Wolverine, Wolverine, Uncanny X-Men & X-Force, Cable & X-Force, Gambit
I like DC's iconics more than I like Marvel's. Why Marvel or DC? Because superheroes.

The characters, especially the second and third generations.
Lots of things.
I grew up watching the Superfriends in the 80's, so there is that whole childhood happy memory thing going on.
I didnt start reading comics until the early 90's, and I really liked what DC had going on in a lot of their books back then. Marvel on the other hand, seemed to be nothing more than issue long slugfests, half the time against other heroes. The heroes didnt seem overly heroic by comparison because of this, and didnt really inspire me or trigger my imagination. Picking up a DC comic, I could see Superman travel through space, or see Flash run through time. Marvel on the other hand, just had a bunch of highly flawed heroes fighting a lot of villains.
The scope is bigger, the characters are bigger than life, and most of the time I prefer the writing. Not always, and I have certainly gone through periods where I dont read much DC at all, if any. But for the most part, I think DC has more creative and imaginative story lines, with characters who feel like they fit giant cosmic Crisis stuff better than say, Wolverine or Spider-Man.
They tell great stories about the characters I love. Simple as.
