Who is the most polarizing hero/villain? For example: I love Bane, while others hate him, and there aren't many in between.
I can understand why some people would love Superman, he's one of the first heroes, probably the most famous and has had some great stories, I have no explanation for the extreme hate he gets tho. I get that not everyone is going to like a character but there are some on here that act like Superman killed their mom or something.
For me, it's Deadpool. I know a lot of people love him but I just find him immature and irritating.
I can understand the Superman hate. He is the first famous superhero and has been consistently hailed as the best for 70+ years. So everyone who thinks their favorite character is the best will think that they should get more recognition but don't because of Supes. So he has the most fans but also the most detractors. I would compare him to the Yankees. The Yankees have been consistently good for a very long time. If you ever look at polls of who the favorite baseball team is . . . it's the Yankees. If you look a poll on who the most hated team is . . . it's the Yankees. Success brings love from those who are fans but hatred from those who are fans of other teams/characters/or anything else really.
