or do they just on and off again partners that really respect each other
are superman and batman genuinely friends?
They might be friends, but Bruce ALWAYS keeps a piece of Kryptonite in his utility belt...The supposed reason for this is just in case Supe ever goes outta control, but it makes me wonder if he keeps it just in case he could kick Supe's @$$ anytime he pissed hime off! :)
But at the end of Superman/Batman #49 you see just how much K Batman had stored up on his own, including the varietals. BUT, that does not necessarily mean that their relationship is based on suspicion. There is way too much evidence that they are like brothers (RedK brought up one instance, there are more in Superman/Batman #s 44, 28)
This little gem comes from Superman/Batman #33, and I think sums up the idea rather nicely.
