I think the Batman will always be the most interesting of superheroes, but I want to hear what everyone else has to say... write down your favorite superhero and then if you want, jot down why =] DFTBA!
Batman. He can't be defeated. He has no powers, but still is the best. He uses his brain. He doesn't kill, even when he has every reason to. He has the best villians. I just love Batman and I think he's the best.
I have recently come to appreciate Layla Miller. She is an X-Man who "know stuff." Basically, she can manipulate the butterfly effect go get a desired outcome. For instance, she once foiled a kidnapper by ordering pizzas from four different pizza places, knowing that all four delivery men would crash simultaneously at an intersection, blocking the kidnappers getaway route. She might not have super strength, cool gadgets, or some flashy powers, but she has the best power of all, the power of knowledge.
Batman is certainly interesting, but I don't think he's the best, though I am partial to Marvel. The no killing thing is not that unique, nor is his lack of super powers. For instance, Iron Man and Batman are really quite similar, except Tony Stark is more of an egotist than Bruce Wayne. Both have inherited major corporations from their families, are extremely brilliant, use tools and gadgets they built rather than natural powers, and both have a very strong moral conduct.
If I had to pick a favorite comic book, I'd say X-Men, but for just one superhero, right now it has to be Layla Miller.
It's great to see fellow Batman fans. I can never find any people who like Batman best. Not that it's a contest or anything. I love most superhero stories for oodles of reasons - romanticism, moral fiber, honor, bravery etc. Each has reasons why they're great to watch or read or whatever. But I've always found Batman's tale especially fascinating. He's so intelligent and tortured. The subtle darkness of the Batman character, I love it.
mmm... very interesting, you probably have already read/seen the "the watchmen" but in case you haven't, the hero Rorschach is one of the darkest and twisted "super"heroes I've ever seen. His commitment to justice is unparalleled, but there definitely is a classic "dark knight in shining armor" quality that we can always expect from the caped crusader =]
The Batman movies are by far the best. I especially love the slightly older ones, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy is amazing, and was officially my best Halloween costume ever.
But I think Spiderman is the best superhero. I don't even have a reason, I've just always loved Spiderman!
