Why Batman is THE Man


With the Spider-Man 3 movie coming out next month, I thought it might be a good time to make my case for why I believe that Batman is the greatest super hero of all time.

As a 48-year-old who has never grown up, I still love the Caped Crusader and always will. Here are my five top reasons explaining why no other super hero will ever surpass Batman.

1.) Batman really does't have any super powers and isn't invincible. Hes a real human being like you and me. I mean, Superman (who is an alien, by the way) can do just about anything he wants to, unless of course you have some kryptonite, which is about as easy to get as Paris Hilton’s phone number. (bad example)

2.) Batman has an intriguing dark side. "The Dark Knight" comics of recent years have brought out this side of Batman a little more. Having a mysterious, unknown personality makes him more interesting. Superman is about as interesting as a Dr. Phil marathon on TV.

3.) Batman fights the best villains. Superman has Lex Luthor. (lame), Spiderman has the Gremlin (isn't that a car?) while Batman has a long list of legendary evil people to battle, like the Joker, the Penguin, the Cat woman, the Riddler, Mr. Freeze, the Mad Hatter, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, the Scarecrow and King Tut. Can anyone even tell me one of Wonder Woman's or The Flash's nemeses? I can't!

4.) Batman is also a detective. Batman uses his brains more than any other super hero. He takes advantage of the latest technology and his top-notch sleuthing techniques to catch the bad guys, unlike Superman, who relies primarily on his brawn.

5.) Batman has the coolest outfit. Superman looks like he’s wearing Underoos. Wonder Woman looks like a 1970's  disco reject and the Green Lantern looks like a pirate from the Castro. Throw in his incredible utility belt; containing everything from a bat boomerang to white-out, and Batman wins the costume contest hands down.

"1.) Batman really doesn’t have any super powers and isn’t invincible. He’s a real human being like you and me. " Doesn't that pretty much rule him out as a super hero? In other words, there's nothing super about him. But Batman ftw.
