is it cause he does what he thinks is best takes no ones advice an he is always right in his eyes.
Just for the record, Silver Age Superman was no dick either. Most of the covers from that time were compiled and taken out of context then made popular by the Superdickery site. And so a lot of people joke around about him being a dick. Unfortunately, an increasing amount of ignoramus think he really is a dick.
I think it really comes down to the silver age Superman combined with how powerful and strong willed he is. Yeah, the silver age covers were hugely misleading, but he also did crap like marry Lois Lane without telling her his secret identity and forcing her to stay in the fortress of solitude, which is unconditional dickery, right there. But combine that old image (which people really, really, really cannot shake:see Robin's old costume and Aquaman only talks to fish) with him being a strong willed character with his own moral code, and people are likely to consider the character a dick.
I think on all counts Batman is much more of a dick than Superman will ever be.
