I love Batman, but what is so super about him?

Superman has too many powers... that was my big rant as a kid.

Are you watching that WB "Batman?" It kind of sucks, by Batman standards..."Batman Begins" was cosmically awesome though, may be my favorite superhero movie ever.

Batman is awesome BECAUSE he doesn't have powers. he's just really smart, strong, quick, stealthy. complete badass. all Superman does is knock people around and nothing can hurt him except green rocks. WTF? where's the fun there?

the WB batman is still bassed off Batman: The Animated Series, which is probably the greatest American cartoon of all time. The writing and plot of the cartoon was better than any of the Batman films of the 80s and 90s, hell you acn say it's better than Batman Begins too.

When I saw the new Batman cartoon, I went 'What the hell? What have they done to Batman?! His muscles are all gone, he's way too thin, blahblahblah" I much rather have the cartoon Batman of the 90s. That future Batman was good as well.

Robin was always my favorite. Me and my brother actually have these Batman and Robin costumes. Yah I know you're jealous.

Thank Christopher Nolan, they finally got a "real" director to direct a superhero movie.

Batman is awesome. Superman is a wuss who hides behind all his powers.

It's not up to par with the past Batman series, Batman: The Animated Series, The Adventures of Batman and Robin, The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, but today's episode was pretty decent. I was flipping through and caught it, so I watched. They seem to be doing a better job with the stories. The cartoon is obviously for a younger age group, but they seem to have moved away from that slightly. It takes time getting used to the style, but the animation that they're able to do if fantastic.

It's the fact that he doesn't have any superpowers but conditioned his mind, body skill so well that he might as well have superpowers. He's gone head to head with people far more powerful than him and has done more than hold his own.

All that said... there's really only one explanation. He's Batman...

While Superman has a lot of powers, the thing that makes him so great is that he's lived a life where he must continuously be in control. As powerful as he is, he's afraid to inadvertently hurt someone, so he seldom uses all of his power. This makes him pretty vulnerable. And as powerful as he is, there are several characters who are more ridiculous... Silver Surfer, Phoenix... :confusedshrug:

Another thing I like about Batman is that you can start a vs. battle... Batman vs. Silver Surfer, and Batman will will the arguments 4 out of 5 times... He's Batman. :rockon:
