Because they know he won't fight back. Partially because he's too much of a goodie goodie. Partially because he's a fictional character.

Real question is: Why do many people suck his D***?

#9 Posted by AmazingWebHead (1812 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe it's because he's always been a nice guy, and they don't think he fits the "darkening" that's been going on. (They've beaten "darkening" it to death, even if it still works)

I still think he's cool, though.

#10 Posted by ssejllenrad (12847 posts) - - Show Bio

Lots of reasons:

1. People think he's overpowered and overly boyscout-esque. People who don't want to relate to really powerful goody-two-shoes... Unfortunately, they relate to being a multi-billionaire playboy or being a superhuman WW2 war hero out-of-time. Go figure.

2. People think he's underpowered. People who think he's too weak to fight the likes of Goku. But then Supes wins the Deathbattle and then they go apesh*t crazy that he's not supposed to be that strong. Good luck finding logic in that.

3. People who think he's uncool and outdated. I've said it once and I'll say it again. Supes transcends coolness. Funky/Disco was cool. New Wave was cool. Cool gets outdated more than anything. You know what's not cool? The Lord of the Rings. Beethoven. Wagner. Those stuff... They're epic. So obviously, people who don't like him cause he's not cool love getting dated oer time and hate epic things.

4. It's their goddamn preference!!!!!! He's not just their cup of tea.

Anyway.

Superman is picked because no one has ever read one of his comics.The current comic indrustry is gathering readers from the movies.What i mean is that,people learn the characters through films and......guess......Supermans movies sucked!

First time I've commented, people pick on him because it's the age old thing of stupid people not actually reading about him they think he's too powerful and that he can't be beaten. These same people in the same breath will say another character if it's a DBZ character or a Marvel character is awesome and unbeatable yet don't say these characters are over powered because by there logic they like them so they can't be beaten.

Really it's just people being idiots, but those who do read Superman and simply say he's not my type of hero but I won't hate on him is ok for me. But it's n00bs that spoil it for everyone saying for example Thor/Goku is more powerful than Superman and Thor/Goku can beat superman because he's magic or stronger yet they say also Superman is Over powered. I don't get it either how can Superman be over powered if they say Thor/Goku is stronger than Superman obviously Thor/Goku must be over powered if they say he can beat him because they are stronger.

Oh and no I'm not hating on Goku or Thor I like both characters and I like Superman also.

So really it's just trolls and n00bs using their peanut brain logic. Don't take it to heart.

#17 Posted by SuperJimmy (20 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the reason why there are lots of such kind of threads is because it is a real problem for superman, like right now. He didn't do anything, but people simply just hate him for the reasons they invented in order to have an excuse to hate him. AND, it doesn't help that bat-god crap is so popular right now, and people like bat so much so that want superman to be deranked so that batman would become legitmately the NO.1 in comic book superhero history (and that explains why superman fans don't like batman and batman fans sometimes would attack superman for no reason. I'm not saying all of them (batman fans), but that does happen here or there (attacking superman, saying he's a douche or whatnot while batman acts like a douche all the time.)

Maybe the upcoming Superman movie will improve the image of Superman. Batman also used to have an image problem bec. of the Adam West tv show.

It's easy to pick on Supes. I feel like Batman represents the aspects that most guys strive for: Mental excellence and physical excellence, or more accurately, mental and physical superiority. Not to mention he doesn't take crap from anyone. Superman represents giving people the benefit of the doubt, looking for the good in others, honesty, all the characteristics that most people think are boring. Basically, Batman represents what people want to be and Superman represents the character that people should have, but find boring.

@TrueMarvel: That whole almighty thing you keep saying pretty much proves that you don't know much about Superman considering DC has quite a few characters far more powerful than Superman and even more that are a pretty even fight for him. I'm not saying that you have to like the character but if you don't know much about him then you're opinion on him doesn't really matter.

Back when I was a hater (complete opposite now) it was because I believed him to be too overpowered to have a decent story. That changed when I read some of his decent stories, before then I'd only encountered stories that are apparently disliked by many people.

Superman represents truth, hope and goodness and those thing are not cool. People nowadays gravitate to characters that have a dark past and have some serious emotional issues. Superman is probably the one of the most well-adjusted superheroes out there today when he could go completely brooding, angry and lonely (he certainly has reason to). Granted I love a pissed off, grief stricken, unbalanced anti-hero, but there should always be a place for the good, upstanding hero with the sun at his back and with hope in his heart.

As for being so powerful; I rather see that as a challenge for Supes than a advantage. Supes is so powerful that there must be an urge to just use his power to exert justice over the whole world (he could and no one would be able to stop him), but his strong moral character keeps himself under control. (for you batman fans it's like his no-kill oath)

I'd like to specifically ask why it seems bat fans are so hostile to Superman? Has it always been around or did Frank Miller start it with DKR?

@TrueMarvel:

Wow dude, trolling or what I happen to be a fan of both Batman and Superman equally. But I understand Superman's character what he means and so on. He maybe one of the most powerful people on earth but his weaknesses of character and the fact he can't do everything stands to reason he isn't perfect. Superman has never stated he was god or even thinks himself as one. Superman is actually more relate able to me than Batman is because of either changing jobs or even changing countries is home vs heritage, and even feeling alone everyone feels that at times when they have to deal with a choice or problem only they can solve.

Also to take note on what someone else has told you there are many people as powerful or even out class him, it's why the stupid statement that people often say he's over powered yet people like Thor or hulk can beat him so how is he over powered? Plus Martian Manhunter has more powers than Superman and can change his structure to surpass Superman's strength and invunrability.
