Batman or Superman?

Which do you prefer? Why?
Are you for sleek perfection or gadgetry?
Gotham or Metropolis?

This isn't a death match sort of thing, but it can be if you want it to.

This is so easy it's not even funny.

Superman is from outer space.
He is virtually indestructable
He has laser eyes
He can fly

In comparison, Batman is just a big pussy with a nice car and a gay sidekick.

Batman.
He's human.
He's badass.
Gotham looks awesome. Metropolis... well, it was filmed here and I hate it here.

Definitely Batman. Despite having no superpowers, his villains actually end up in the looney bin. Until they escape, anyway. But Superman? God, it wasn't until last year that Lex Luthor was finally considered public enemy number one and a national disgrace and wanted mass-murderer. And that was largely due to Steel. Fucking Steel. Srsly.

''Would you like that? Would you like to ride with Batman?"




Classic!!!!! I loved that commercial. There was a different cut that had him like frolicking in the backround with a pseudo cape.

Yes we need a poll. I am going to start that thread. srsly

Yes, Superman is virtually indestructable, unless someone is holding a rock of kryptonite in their pocket then he gets his ass handed to him.

And lets not forget that he loses his powers if the sun gets blocked out.

Batman beat the holy hell out of superman twice in comics, once when a bomb threw up a cload that blocked out the sun and the second time when the man in tights tried to sneak into the batcave, then batty kicked superman's ass with kryptonite gloves.

Batman is just a character with a better storyline, and better enemies. For instance The Joker is born from an accident caused by batman, and for that reason batman doesnt' just kill the joker.

Batman. The comics are darker and oh so kick ass.

Superman is kind of a sissy. I mean, look at his hair.

'The Dark Knight' is going to be the best movie ever. Fo' real. Scarecrow is back, the Joker, no Katie Holmes, Harvey Dent played by Aaron Eckhart. Me.ow.

Now that supre has split this up...

I never had any qualms with Superman until seeing Superman Returns. All that religious imagery kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Superman is a pretty dull person when he's not fighting something.

Batman in the sixties was pretty gay and campy, but I grew up watching the animated series in the 90's and that show was really awesome. Black paper, creepy villans, and characters you could actually care about (the episode where the mudman tossed himself of the cliff into the sea to dissolve away into oblivion made me cry. I was four.)

I always remember "Heart of Ice" the first episode with Mr. Freeze.

Bruce Timm is why I love Batman more than Superman.

The man took the Joker, imbibed him with the insanity that Alan Moore's one-shot "The Killing Joke" (probably one of the best comics ever written), kept him slightly campy, and gave him Mark Hamill's voice! He invented Harley Quinn (who still rocks)! He actually made Mr. Freeze, a gimmick character from the 60s, DIMENSIONAL WITH EMOTION (I don't know what it means, it sounded far better in my head).

But yes... Batman over Superman, fuck yes.

If it's between the most recent Superman and Christopher Nolan's Batman, then I choose Batman.

Superman looked kinda gay in the new movie (not that there's anything wrong with being gay, it's just that I like pussy rather than le cock).

Batman also gets to bang Katie Holmes. Which totally rules face.

This question is too vague.

The Batman Comics vs. The Superman Comics?
The Batman Movies vs. The Superman Movies?
Who has better superpowers?


I answered it from a superpower perspective. If I had a choice, I'd rather have Superman's powers over any other superhero.

Keaton.

Bale is a close second.

So far it's still Keaton because he's had much better material to work with, but Bale has all the chops to pull ahead.

And the Batman vs. Superman debate is kind of a silly one. Superman is favored by an (with all due respect) immature audience, but he's actually a really shitty superhero. He is unbeatable in pretty much every respect, his only weakness being a certain kind of rock. That's a miserable fucking excuse for a character right there.

Batman wins this hands-down because he's NOT a superhero. He's just a man with resources and motivation--motivation rooted in a deep-seated personal tragedy--who fights against real-life villany (cartoonish villany, but point being that nobody is indestructible or any of that bullshit). Batman's weaknesses are the weaknesses of a man and relate to the human condition. Superman's are bullshit contrivances just to give his opposition some method of fighting against a hero who's otherwise incapable of being harmed.

Which of the guys that played 'Batman' portrayed an accurate Bruce Wayne ?

Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, a wealthy industrialist, playboy, and philanthropist. Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads him to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Batman operates in Gotham City, assisted by various supporting characters including his sidekick Robin and his butler Alfred, and fights an assortment of villains influenced by the characters' roots in film and pulp magazines. Unlike most superheroes, he does not possess superhuman powers or abilities; he makes use of intellect, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, physical prowess, and intimidation in his war on crime.

If Bale's performance in the new flick is as good or better than the last, he will have a slight edge over Keaton.

I think Bale made a good Bruce Wayne but not a perfect Batman. He was very stiff and it wasn't natural.

I am really looking forward to new Batman though.

I just recently saw Batman Begins for the first time, and I was quite impressed. I thought Bale did a great job, and I thought the film had a great cast overall. I did think it started out kinda slow, and took too long for Bruce to get back to Gotham, and I think the Scarecrow should of been used more...but in general, it was a great return for Batman I think. Nolan did a great job and I'm looking forward to The Dark Knight.

I don't know if I would call Bale the best batman just yet though...the movie and performance still needs to sink in and hold the test of time. I might be in the minority here, but I actually enjoy Batman Forever and think Val Kilmer did a good job portraying Batman. Plus I like Carrey's performance as the Riddler. I enjoy it a lot more than either of the Burton films. In fact, if I had to rate em, it would probably be:

Batman Forever
Batman Begins
Batman
Batman Returns
Batman and Robin

(the last one being as close to shit as you can get)

but um yeah, Batman over Superman any day of the week. Cooler costume, vehicles, city, villians, gadgets, atmosphere, films etc...need I go on?

Batman lives in a cave with a creepy old guy and Robin. Superman lives in a fortress made of crystals. CRYSTALS!!!

I think Schumacher nearly destroyed the franchise. Thankfully, they gave the controls over to Nolan.
Returns was Ok, but it got substantially worse with B & R. Erik, I agree that Kilmer was a good Batman, but I think that both Keaton and Bale were better.
Batman & Robin was the true low point. Complete pile of shit.

07-27-2007, 08:32 AM
yeah I'm glad WB got the brains to cancel the batman franchise for a while after Batman and Robin, because Schumacher would of just kept making it worse. I liked his style and vision for Forever, but it got stupid and over the top for Batman and Robin and would of continued to go down hill if he was allowed to keep going. Batman and Robin seemed more like a toy commercial (just like the actors themselves have said). Plus Clooney was the worst casting ever.

I at first was very skeptical about Heath Ledger as the Joker.

But after seeing some pics (there are TONS out there) and hearing his voice in that trailer, I sudenly think he is going to do a great job. I am now excited for this movie.
