Now, let's get this straight: Batman is easily the coolest superhero. Quite simply, he doesn't have any superpowers and harnesses the power of modern technology for the goodness of mankind. Compared to him, Superman, Spiderman, Aquaman, and everyone else are all complete losers. I mean, from the moment they start, Superman has an advantage over his adversary. Batman has no advantage. But, he still stops crime.

So, who's your favorite superhero?

However, with the exception of omnipotent multidimensional beings, Superman would beat pretty much any other superhero in a fight. Even though he may not be the awesomest, he still has that.

Green Arrow does not have superpowers either and has one up on Batman. Various technologically advanced Arrows. Though Batman does have the better lair with the bat cave.

So Batman is cool because he's a rich motherfucker with too much time on his hands? The message it conveys is "MONEY IS THE GREATEST SUPERPOWER."

I prefer Spiderman, the superhero of the nerd and the proletariat.

PS: not movie Spiderman.

No way man. Batman uses his wealth to give back to the community by spending it on things to protect the proletariat. He is not your typical rich dude and times he even feels guilty about his wealth. He has to be rich though, super powers are free but high tech gadgets are expensive as hell. It is not the money though that is the source of his superpower, it is the strength of his character and his will to see justice served. He is popular because he is macho and dark unlike spiderman who is sarcastic and awkward and superman who is perfect and boring. Did that make any sense cause it was all bullshit.

I love Batman and Spiderman. Shady is right about Batman, money isn't what makes him super, its his huge heart which puts the welfare of the people of Gotham above his own needs.

Spiderman is also awesome because of how human he is. I empathize more for Spiderman than for any other character. I get so stressed out watching him. But its good because his story has the ability to do that.

Lex Luthor.

I don't even care if he's not a superhero. He rocks Batman and every super hero right in the ass. Not only was he not randomly blessed with superpowers like everyone else, he also wasn't born into wealth like Batman and made himself a worthy opponent of Superman.

Nightcrawler is the best superhero ever created.

Batman is a tool. Wolverine would eat him for breakfast, along with almost any other Marvel hero. The only people Batman stops are fugly looking people in costumes designed to match their boss.

I've always liked Rorschach and Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen especially. Their narrations were always more insightful than other superheroes'. God, I love Allan Moore's work.

Batman has always been a favourite as well, despite horrible films in the 80s and 90s.

And then the Joker, Batman's villain, who isn't super, always seems much more powerful in his madness somehow. I think he was a poorly explained and introduced characters, but he's consistently the best villain.

Batman could beat, and in several cases has beaten, Superman. Superman described Batman as "The Most Dangerous man on earth".
Read The Dark Knight Returns for a prime example of Bats (with a little help from Green Arrow) doing just that. In fact, read it anyway as (in my humble little opinion) it's second only to Watchmen for the title of best graphic novel ever written.

Batman beats anything and everything with the exception of omnipotent multidimensional beings if given time to prepare, and he generally comes prepared for pretty well anything. Heĺs got a Kryptonite Ring he keeps with him whenever heĺs around ĹSupes.

I haven't seen anything where Wolverine fought Batman (I expect it's happened given the amount of crossovers over the years), but I think the fight would be far from 1-sided. And as for any Marvel hero, Batman did beat Captain American in Marvel vs DC, and could take out Spiderman without breaking a sweat.
Also: Dark Claw.

There are two kinds of people: Those who havenĺt read Watchmen, and those who think Rorschach is legendary. As mentioned above, Watchmen is my all time favourite graphic novel. Did you hear they're making a movie of it? After seeing V for Vendetta adapted brilliantly I have high hopes for this one.

Speaking of Movies, and of Alan Moore, I can't wait to see Joker in The Dark Knight (sequel to Batman Begins). Apparently the source material they're using includes Moore's The Killing Joke. From Wikipedia: "Heath Ledger described his role as the Joker as 'more nuanced and dark and more along the lines of a Clockwork Orange kind of feel. Which is... what the comic book was after: less about his laugh and more about his eyes'." I like the sound of that i'm a serial-killer :)

Also, why the hell hasn't anybody mentioned Deadpool yet?

I think it would better as a 12-part TV series a la Band of Brothers or something, but last I heard, the movie had eight or nine budget set backs and had been cancelled and replanned a few times.

That's fantastic. I actually really enjoyed Batman Begins and wondered how they were going to introduce Harvey Dent if there was a sequel.

It seems like there is a possibility of it half-following the plot of "The Long Halloween" if only Carmine Falcone  wasn't driven mad by Scarecrow, the last we saw him - unless he recovered?
