Dragons are awe-inspiring patchwork creatures found in the myths and legends of cultures all around the world.

In Europe, they are nightmarish fire-spewing reptiles, large and lizard-like, with the forked tongue of a snake and wings like a bat. In the legends, they are reviled and feared because they liked to imprison maidens, destroy villages and hoard over mountains of gold.

In the ancient cultures of Mexico and South America, a divine feathered serpent known by various names was believed to renew the world after each cycle of destruction.

In China, dragons are amphibious creatures that dwell in oceans, lakes, rivers and even raindrops. They are revered as life-giving symbols of fortune and fertility, capable of unleashing rain in times of drought. They are animal mosaics, possessing the body of a snake, the scales of a fish, the talons of an eagle, the antlers of a stag, and the face of a gilin—another mythical creature that resembles a deer but whose body is wreathed in flames.

REMEMBER HOW I ALWAYS SAID TUXEDO MASK WAS A LOT LIKE BATMAN… WELL…

Mamoru and Bruce have a lot of things in common

Both have tragic backgrounds.

Both lost their parents when they were children.

Both dress in black and fight evil.

Both are involved with female power figures (Sailor Moon: champion of love and justice and Selina Kyle: Anti-Hero crime fighter and member of the Justice League) are the leads in their own respective comic/manga.

Both their respective love interests have cats.

Mamoru is a prince of Earth. Bruce Wayne inherited a fortune and is known as the “prince of Gotham”.

There are more parallels I’m sure.

  • Wonder Woman in DC Versus Marvel #3 (1996)

You forgot one. Thor in Earth X (1999). Loki tricks Odin in to changing Thor in to a woman.
