Poll: Are you a Batman hater? (111 votes)

Yes I hate him 8%
No I'm a Batman fan 65%
I'm indifferent towards him 27%

I remember in a thread in the Batman section someone mentioned that there seem to be more Batman haters than fanboys on this site lately. I've noticed this too he seems to be currently the most hated character here on CV/ Most people use the lame excuse of not liking him because of some of his annoying fans (who admittedly annoy me sometimes too) but that reason isn't valid imo. Think of it like this if your current favorite character had his fans would you turn on him too.

So lets get to the bottom of this, does this place have more Batman fans or haters?

Seriously, though: I am a Batman fan.

Not fanboy, just a fan.

And I think I'm one of the very few that doesn't fall into the category of either Batman haters or Batman obsessed fanboys...

Indifferent, mainly the prep thing is the thing that annoys me not so much the character.

I have to like batman on some level given my two favorites would not exist without him...but, I am not as interested in batman as I am his interactions with others. So I am rather indifferent to solo batman.

I don't hate Batman. I do think the Joker is ridiculously overrated though.

Batman is ok, I'm indifferent towards him. I will say that sometimes Bat-fanboys aggravate the hell out of me, but all comic heroes have those types of fans, even my favorite, Captain America, so I don't hold it against the character.

there seem to be more Batman haters than fanboys

That's something a fanboy would say because people are tired of the them.

People don't hate Batman. People hate fanboy's rhetoric.

People might wish there wasn't so many Batman related books but that has nothing to do with whether or not they like him. You can still love him but think he has too many books out there.

Fanboys claim anyone who can admit that Batman can lose sometimes and is not an unbeatable prep god is a hater.

That is all I should need to say on this matter.

Could be a case of how haters draw disproportionate attention. I liked Remender's point on the recent podcast about how there has always been a bitterly negative minority around for everything. The difference is that now that minority has the Internet to amplify their voice. it's better not to search out the haters, but rather to punish them with perpetual ignorage.

I don't hate Batman so much as i resent people who only ever read Batman and none of the other less popular but amazing series that inevitably get cancelled............Demon Knights!!!!

I voted no, but I wouldn't actually call myself a Batman fan.

Batman is a boss, most of the times. But yeah, his fans can get kinda extreme.

#41 Posted by Dabee (2399 posts) - - Show Bio

I feel like anyone that reads anything that's not Batman (even if they DO read Batman) will be called a hater by the fanboys.

No that's not it people are always complaining about him looking too strong but rarely do about other characters who are also made to look strong. I'm sure he doesn't have any more PIS feats than other characters (like Captain America or any high end peak human) but people complain about his PIS moments the most, and don't even get me started on the stupid name BatGod. Dr. Doom wins a lot and when he doesn't it turns out to be a Doombot no one calls him DoomGod though. Even if they don't hate him I get the feeling a lot of people don't give him the pass they give other characters.

Really? So pointing out that people complain more about Batman's PIS moments than other heroes is funny? A bit delusional are we? SMDH. Oooh I used internet slang, I'm sooo kewl!
