This is stupid! The Punisher is supposed to rid the world of this slime and now he's working with it!?!? SO who cares if Slim Shady knows about comics! He should be sitting back with the rest of us watching and reading!
Okay. They do have some similarities, but Babs is right. The Characters they are, are opposites. Spidey is "funny" and bright. Bats is grim and dark. The overall personalities are opposites. Also, during the 90's they both had stand ins. Batman had Azrael and Spidey had Ben Riley. Both of which I thought were better than the original characters.
I mean come on! Did you guys see those awesome Batarang shooting gauntlets? And the Giant spidersymbol? Thats when comics were REALLY awesome.
