Then you'd all know that a character is defined by those who write for them.

Superman has had some of the best stories.

All Star Superman (Grant Morrison)
Man of Steel, and the subsequent superman run by John Byrne
Whatever happened to the Man of Tommorow and
For the Man who has everything by Alan Moore
Kingdom Come (He was the main character in this book, it's a superman story)
The first two Christopher Reeves Films (Richard Donner cut on the second)


I've had some of the worst.

The Dark Knight Strikes Again
All Star Batman and Robin
Batman and Son
Batman RIP
Batman Forever
Batman & Robin
Adam fucking West

We have our ups and our downs, even Deadpool has had some crappy comics (he was created by Rob Liefeld)

eerereghhh, batman & robin /shivers/

But Batman, I said depending on how it's told. That means the writer.
I also said Superman is not my cup of tea, doesn't mean I deny he has a few good stories;
he's just not my hero of choice. You're losing some of your witty edge, sir.

And even though I love most comics with Dark Knight, I know there are some bad ones as well. Damian Wayne makes me want to curl up and cry. I was just trying to argue that Robin is not a totally crap character generally speaking, but I'm not dull enough to know that it all depends on the author. I mean, look at Calender Man. Dayumn.

Speaking of Deadpool, what universe do you live in that you are aware of being a comic character? Seriously, Batman.
Shouldn't you be out on the mean streets of Gotham by now instead of chatting it up with 15-25 year olds in an internet webcomic forum? People could be dying.

Superman isn't exactly my cup of tea, but I don't know, he's been pwned quite a few times. And in his defense, he's a pretty early superhero- though, his first appearance was as a villain. And whuut about Ra's Al Ghul? Feehhh-

Obviously, Deadpool is best. Batman, you've disappointed me with your ridicule.


Damn, how did it take this long for Deadpool to come up?
Is kind of hoping that someone will make another account in an attempt to emulate the awesomeness that is Deadpool

Hmm, my thoughts have always been that I've somewhat disliked Superman, despite Jerry Seinfeld's efforts to sway me. When watching Batman when I was little, the movies, and I noticed that Batman relies on his skills, weapons, amongst other things of course, but Superman just flew around and he had super powers. Woo hoo. Batman on the other hand, didn't have that, but he was kicking ass and taking names regardless, he didn't need superpowers. That's just my personal opinion.

All comic book superheroes are pretty cool in their own right, but batman is still my favorite.

Batman, I have a few questions...how does it feel to be an adolescent male fantasy while at the same time being a vessel for homoerotic imagery verging on pederasty? Was it your idea or his for Robin not to wear any pants? Also, how awesome is it that you spend a curious amount of time fighting with female supervillains but never actually make love to any? One last thing, is the Batmobile a hybrid or is the environment also a criminal that you're trying to defeat?

Batman is more powerful than Superman just in a different way (either way, Batman is cooler) and Superman's dead.

I wouldn't say that. Some of the best graphic novels are Batman stories.

The Dark Knight Returns
Batman: Year One
Arkham Asylum
The Killing Joke
The Long Halloween
Hush

And it seems that the best writers always want to write Batman. Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, Jeph Loeb, Frank Miller (before he became a hack).

Stop having an inferiority complex. You've kicked Superman's ass on many occasions. What more do you want? World domination?

Frank Miller's driving a cab, now? Damn, he must've got screwed on 300.

You know, Neil Gaiman has refused, despite some reportedly very attractive offers, to write a Batman graphic novel. Maybe he realizes that the problem with Batman is that every time one of those well-crafted books comes out and gives, just maybe, a new perspective or new idea on the character and his mythos, the regular factory-storyline does something that completely undoes it all and makes you feel stupid for thinking there was anything more to this over-inflated emo kid than selling t-shirts.
