as was pointed out in kick ass, noone is going to be Batman. noone does all those pushups. Batman isn't that believable.

Bruce wayne and clark kent are both personalitys constructed to hide the superhero aspect. Clark ended up married pre new 52, Bruce may have had many women but he had verry few loves in his life.

I would not say Batman was stronger willed, case in point Infinite Crisis.

Superman is an intrinsically better leader than batman because people follow him without him asking them to. He's a symbol that people will follow, batman has to use force to get people to follow him.

Batman uses fear, Superman uses Trust. Really which one of those is better.

Batman has cool gadgets, Superman has cool powers

Batman has a car, Superman can fly.

Metropolis is the art and culture capital of the DC world , gotham is the crime capital.

Sorry for the short rant, but I can't stand it when people insist that "Batman is better than Superman" like it's some sort of proven fact. It's not a fact, it's an opinion. You want a fact? Superman can obliterate Batman if he wanted to. That's a fact.

This is childish. Both are great characters. And whenever a writer thinks he needs to make Superman look bad so that Batman looks good, he is doing a bad job (I am looking at you Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello).

You are doing the exact same thing.

@cattlebattle: @Gambit1024: Yeah i saw this right when he posted it and i couldn't come up with anything worth saying that might give this troll a piece of mind. Obviously he just wanted to cause trouble watching people argue about which character is better

Better villians? please. Batman may have the joker but Lex luthor is the single greatest villian of all time.

Batman is tortured? HA! superman has to deal with being able to hear all of the crime going on in the world and block it out, his planet is gone, he has to make life or death desicions every minute of every day.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxUMocCJ5wg the greatest theme of all time, it may not be singable but you can hum it at any time and it is epic.

Superman is smarter than Batman, Bruce just has to rely on his intelligence more often because he doesn't have any powers. The will thing is arguable, Superman was a candidate for GLC'S membership.. As for better looking, they actually look pretty similar if you think about it. Bats does have a better costume. Supes gets his fair share of women, Lois is the only one that he really had any trouble with. Supes has badass villains, Lex Luthor, Braniac, and Darkseid to name a few.

Is a Cornette face, is about getting shock about a bizarre thing in wrestling, from the very popular video of Botchamania.

Saddly, people remember me as teh MacGyver guy, for the fact i like MacGyver, also for the fact i was making fun of the battle forum guys.

Yeh. An alien species with translight speed capability who happened to evolve in a manor aesthetically identical to homo sapiens sending the last survivor of their race galaxies away to earth, under which conditions the being is granted incomprehensible god like powers is more believable than a billionaire who happens to be one of the greatest minds on the planet who happens to one of the greatest fighters on the planet deciding to spend his money on (working) planes, cars, submarines, and spaceships (all of which are better than anything else in existence) and deciding to spend all his free time fighting criminals and lasting for even a week.

.....actually when I started posting that I was serious but you know what? Batman actually is more believable than Batman, but not by much. They're both freakin ridiculous.

@Gambit1024 said:

Why is it that Batman fanboys are so insecure that they must always compare him to Superman? They are two completely different characters that just happen to inhabit the same universe. Saying one's better than the other is like saying Captain America is better than Dr. Doom. They have next to nothing in common other than the fact that they're both comic book characters that inhabit the same continuity.

Sorry for the short rant, but I can't stand it when people insist that "Batman is better than Superman" like it's some sort of proven fact. It's not a fact, it's an opinion. You want a fact? Superman can obliterate Batman if he wanted to. That's a fact.

Disagree with the first line,Superman fans on this site are more insecure.Just take a look at last weeks thread right here on this forum.

I never said one was more insecure than the other. I'm fully aware that this site has Superman fanboys as well (insecure ones at that).

How is Batman scarier than Superman? Superman could accidentally kill you and your whole family with a sneeze, Bats has to try to scare you but all Superman has to do is be upset to fill the entire world with mortal dread. Batman gets pissed he breaks your nose Supes gets pissed he breaks your goddamned hemisphere

Okay Batman is by far my favorite superhero but they are friends, so why can't we all just get along lol

In my opinion they are both bad ass and when they team up, it is even more bad ass, so here are the equations:

Batman= Bad Ass Human

Superman= Bad Ass Alien

Batman + Superman= The Most Bad Ass Team of TwoBut he started off as a Batman villain.rum Posts: 482Wiki Points: 0Followed by: 17Reviews: 0 Lists: 0
