supes. no contest. come at me batman fanboys.

Batman. I relate to him more. I don't hate Superman, but I'm just apathetic towards him. And I think Batman is cooler :)

I'll first say that I'm not being a wise ass.

I'd like to hear someone's argument that Aquaman is the greatest hero in the DC universe. I've grown to respect him more in recent years.

superman (after seeing his film I know love him)

#6 Posted by Battle_Forum_Junkie (7602 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman is.

But I like Batman more. I think he has a more interesting character, and cooler, too.

#7 Posted by RBT (4121 posts) - - Show Bio

So basically this is a popularity contest between Superman and Batman. Maybe Flash and Hal will get a few votes. Sorry Wondy, you're not getting much.

I'll be checking this poll nonetheless.

What do you mean by "greatest"? It's a vague term. You mean most powerful? My personal favorite? Character wise?

@battle_forum_junkie:

QFT. Only thing I disagree with is with Supes being DC's best hero. Batman is without a doubt the best DC's superhero. I think he is more interesting, cooler, and more complex than Supes.

Superman. He embodies all the qualities of a true hero. Batman is more of a vigilante out to avenge the death of his parents and will never truly be satisfied with his own efforts.

@arkhamc1tizen: how could you vote for him after seein the film? The whole reason for that destruction on earth was because of him. Zod wanted Supes, yet he decides to fly around and battle him in ultra-populated Metropolis. Pretty boneheaded move.

Batman. It's always been Batman, always will be. Deal, haters.

I agree with Lone Wolf here. I think Supes is the better "hero" although I'd take bats over Kal any day.

But, everyone's entitled to there own opinion.

Superman is the greatest in every sense of the word. He's the most well loved by the DC public as well as the most well known. He inspires others to be better, he even inspired two teams of heroes in the future. Not to mention that his powers make him more successful than most others.

@eternal19: I didn't attack him. You're being defensive and over sensitive. Not to mention throwing me under the bus. This is a discussion thread where people share their opinions, simple as that. If you don't like it you can leave, but don't berate me for having an opinion you simply don't agree with. Go whine someplace else. Maybe then you'll find someone more suited to coddle your delicate sensibilities.

Calling me sensitive. when you obviously tried to throw another user under the bus for liking a movie you didnt like. Im the one whining. hah, you're the one obviously getting defensive.

@eternal19: of course I am being defensive. When someone picks an altercation with me for no reason other than to throw me under the bus on a public forum, I'm going to defend myself. I was airing my opinion. You know no other way to do that than to be petty and masquerade as some crusading defender of posters. But you're really just a flamer instigating.

You tried to bring up the Dark Knight as if it had any relevance to what I was saying (which it didn't) probably just so you could get into an altercation and call someone a fanboy. After that mishap you probably feel like a fool, so you'll continue (even after this I presume) making yourself look foolish for the sake of not backing down. But whatever, I'll let you have the last word as I'm sure you'd like that. I, on the otherhand, don't care to respond to you anymore. I just don't care to be publicly scolded by some self-righteous internet poster. So I'll leave it at that.

I voted Green Lantern, personally.

If we're talking, all time Greatest DC Hero? It's Superman. Hands down.

However, don't know if TC wants my opinon, or ____. Personally, my favorite is Green Lantern. I could see why people would vote for Superman though.

#41 Edited by bornonamonday (54 posts) - - Show Bio

I feel like this is a loaded question, of course a ton of people are going to say Superman a week after a very good movie about him just came out. Ask this question a week after The Dark Knight Rises came out and it would be overwhelmingly Batman. Looking at the body of actual work(comics) Batman wins this hands down with Green Lantern coming in second. Supes has been written so inconsistently that most of his story arcs are largely forgettable with the exception of the really good stuff(Red Son, All-Star Supes, Earth One) all of which isn't cannon to the main DC universe :/

#42 Posted by Extremis (3334 posts) - - Show Bio

@bornonamonday: wow very well said and agreed on most accounts. My gripe would be the Hal beig second part (instead of lower). But I could see what you're saying as currently (and for the past decade) he's been getting great treatment. And all of it is in continuity.

#44 Posted by AnyWhichWayButUp (760 posts) - - Show Bio

Why's everyone saying Batman and Superman? Batman lets Joker kill thousands every week, and Superman's moral code isn't all that great.

#45 Posted by Black_Claw (2919 posts) - - Show Bio

@anywhichwaybutup: And that's why I picked Wonder Woman. She has all the things I like about Superman but the thing about her is that she's not afraid to kill should the situation require it. That's why if someone like the Joker came to my city I know she'd snap his neck in a heart beat.

I'll first say that I'm not being a wise ass.

I'd like to hear someone's argument that Aquaman is the greatest hero in the DC universe. I've grown to respect him more in recent years.

It's clearly Aquaman because he probably has the hardest time of it. Everyone loves Superman and Wonder Woman. Green Lantern is respected among the Green Lantern Corps and a lot of the Universe. Nobody ever disrespects Flash but they do Aquaman. Batman has the biggest group of heroes take after him; Dick, Tim, Jason, Damien, Barbara, Cassandra, The Nightwings, every country has a Batman. Aquaman is respected by no-one the police feel embarrassed when he stops a crime, the people he apprehends laugh in his face, the public treat him like a joke and yet he still continues to help them even though he could just sit on a throne all day and just let others deal with his problems. I am sure if Batman or Superman weren't as popular to the public then they would probably have a different view on life but no they are the most respected heroes there are.
