    Batman. He rocks it out. His balls...he carries them with construction equipment. Superman has all the sack of a deflated water ballon.

    Talking

    Has to be The Batman. Anyone can fight crime if they have superstrength and are invernable, but with no superpowers, only your own trained body and mind, and the gadgets you've created? That's guts! Besides, Bruce is always on the psychotic edge, adding a dark side to Batman, and a bit of a "lone wolf." He will help The Justice League only if it suits him.

    I was always a Marvel fan growing up. Superman and Batman were ruined for me in my youth with the original cover art not to mention cheesy bat show. Eventually I crossed over to see light. Batman of the 90's through today hands down. I'm talking the batman of the comics, not the movies. Sorry Supey.

    I adored the Batman cartoons when I was young. I grew out of the characters long ago, but I still manage to watch some movies here and then. Heh.

    I like both characters, but Batman wins. He's had to work hard to become the best at what he does, whereas Superman was just born powerful. Superman's almost invulnerable, indestructable - where's the fun in that? We want flawed characters that are out there risking their necks.

    I love the darkness that's associated with Batman, if anything I think it could be darker. Absolutely loved Alan Moore's The Killing Joke and Miller's Dark Knight Returns .

    Only one criticism of the characters - underwear on the outside of their costumes!? In this day and age!? Surely it's time for DC to (ehem) remove their underwear.

    I wonder if anyone's read any of the early Authority comics? They've got a twisted version of Superman and Batman (called Apollo and Midnighter) that do all the things that DC are not allowed to do. It makes excellent reading.

    I suppose it's no secret who my favorite superhero is (hint: look to the far <-- left), but between the two, I prefer Superman. Batman is so painfully overrated by the masses, referred to by comic book rookies as "the only one without superpowers," which annoys me to no end. Batman is cool, no doubt about it, so it's nothing personal, but he's seriously two steps away from being as psychotic as the people he fights. Superman is THE Boy Scout, fighting for "Truth, Justice, and the American Way." Sure, it's annoying, and the underwear grates on the nerves once in a while, but as seen in the Death of- and Return of Superman story arcs, people draw so much inspiration from Superman that he is literally an icon (no, seriously--there are people worshipping him). He inspires hope, while Batman can only instill fear. Batman does win extra points for Coolest Car but loses points for Running Through Young Wards Faster Than Michael Jackson.

    Green Arrow still kicks all of their butts.

    You misunderstand. My avatar is not Robin Hood, but Green Arrow I/Oliver Queen, of DC Comics semi-fame. First non-charter member of the Justice League, Green Arrow began as a Batman clone (billionaire who suffers a serious loss and goes vigilante, complete with Arrow-Car, Arrow-Plane, and Arrow-Signal), he eventually received a major makeover and developed a) a personality, and b) a sense of humor. As it stands, he's an ultra-liberal cynic with a weakness for women who gave his life to save Metropolis, was resurrected by his friend/traveling buddy Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, and now serves from time to time in the Justice League with son Green Arrow II/Connor Hawke, former young ward Arsenal/Roy Harper (formerly known as Speedy), and lover Black Canary II/Dinah Lance. Any comic book geeks out there, please correct me if I mix something up or omit anything major.

    Understandable mix-up,though--if memory serves, Green Arrow is a direct descendant.

    superman vs batman

    For me I think Superman is way cooler because he has real powers not just lame objects that help him. Batman has to get his stuff from other people, superman was born with the super human powers. He is way cooler.

    I vote for Superman. When I was a small kid, I had delusions that I was Superboy with magical powers his parents had to keep secret. Then I fell out of a tree and realized I couldn't fly. Good thing I wasn't on a cliff.
