What’s all this I keep seeing about Batman vs. Superman as if Batman could really hold a candle to the man of steel? Last I knew, Superman is a super strong alien who is only hurt by kryptonite, and Batman is just a regular dude who happens to have a lot of money, a utility belt, and a paunchy sidekick. Someone explain to me how Batman is going to bitch slap Superman and get away with it. No, really. I’d like to know.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Batman’s back story. Losing his parents at such a young age, and in such a dramatically sad fashion, it makes me want to cry for little Brucie Wayne. Turning that, and his immense fortune, into all those gadgets so that he could protect the less fortunate is also admirable.
But he’s still just a man. He was never bitten by a radioactive bat or received super powers from a fairy godmother. He’s just a man.
Superman, on the other hand, is faster than a speeding bullet, is stronger than a train, has x-ray vision, and, oh yeah, he can FLY. The comparisons just don’t do Batman any justice. Yet, for some reason I keep seeing these stupid memes that have Batman being superior to Superman.
Somebody explain it to me please!
