NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Summer blockbuster season is hitting stride as comic geeks and cinephiles alike ponder the schoolyard question: "Who would win in a fight: Green Lantern or Captain America?"That matchup isn't just about two of the great World War II-era comic book franchises, but the battle between Marvel Comics (MVL) and D.C. Comics and all that entails. It's Warner Brothers (TWX) versus Viacom (VIA.B) and Disney (DIS - Get Report) for box-office bragging rights. It's Subway versus Burger King (BKC) for the fast-food tie-ins. It's Mattel (MAT) versus Hasbro (HAS) in the action-figure arena. It's Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS) versus Pepsi (PEP), and it's all for the benefit of big-budget superhero film buffs.
