  1. And I bet May of next year Batman gets jack squat. I never liked Superman, and I feel like he honestly doesn’t deserve the adulation. I mean, Superman’s pretty much just an omnipotent meter maid as far as his mindset. He (usually) has a bland personality, no discernible goals other than “Truth, Justice, and the American Way,” and no internal conflict beyond “how many crooks can I put in jail during my lunch break?” He’s literally unstoppable except by glowing green rocks and guilt trips, and somehow, the rocks are easier to find than a comic book in the ’90s. I mean, really, how can a supposedly very valuable and higly radiaoactive material end up in the hands of every single petty thug in Metropolis? He was a bad character, and he doesn’t deserve the mantle of the world’s most famous superhero.

    • somebody seems to have forgotten the arse whooping that things like MAGIC can put on him? And perhaps the Red Sun Radiation that also effectively neutralizes his powers?

      No, maybe he doesn’t deserve “world’s most famous”, but if he is, he is. Not everyone likes the dark, brooding angry-man Batman either. Just as people probably dislike Marvel’s true flagship character- The Amazing Spider-Man.

      • I love Batman, and I can deal with Spiderman, but Superman is MY hero.

        “With great power comes great responsibility” – Pa Kent had that idea first. What endears me to Superman is his morals. He never wavers, never stops, never stops believing in the people of Earth and their potential, no matter how many times a government or some awful guy tries to stop him. He doesn’t abuse his powers, and he has the BEST secret identity around – and no, it’s not the glasses, its being a reporter, because if he can’t get the truth told as Superman, he can get it told in the paper.

        Superman, and people often forget this, isn’t about the super. He’s about the man.

        And you obviously haven’t read some of the best Superman stories out there.

        And yeah, Batman will get this. Are you kidding? How could he not!
