Favorite superhero and why

I like Batman more than anyone else for many, many reasons.

I like the features of his slick, dark, eloquent costume usually. I like the mechanical and engineering aspects of his arsenal, how he often utilizes his mechanical know-how to retrofit cutting edge technologies to do some pretty unreal things for him that they weren't even really designed for. He has to innovate because he has no superpowers. Everything he does has some adventure to it, and this guy can witness anything and come out alright. He's seen some shit and it doesn't even phase him. The man has no stress, he's a genius on multiple levels, he's so sharp that nothing gets by him, and he learns everyday. He's a survivor on the highest level, dude can find a way to overcome anything, he could have several compound fractures, dislocations, he'll find a way to patch everything up and counterbalance any limitations. What he does is a lot more complicated, exciting, there's just more going on with his routine than with any other superhero.

Superman, by far. He is literally the definition of "hero" and the one that all other heroes look up to. He has enough power to take over and rule the world but instead he uses it to serve and protect humanity and fight for "Truth, justice, and the American way". Also, his costume is friggin' awesome and I'm really attracted to his kryptonian origin and backstory of growing up in a small town and learning human values. He is more "human" than most actual humans.

HULK SMASH PUNY BAT!!

The strongest maddest dude in the game son, I likes me some widespread destruction and all out ferocity to my supers.

Banners cool too, smartest guy in the room and you dont wanna piss him off. Nerd Rage.

In the real world I make myself appear calm but underneath that I rage so I can empathize with the green guy. Would I want Hulk on my team, oh heck no, but I would want to watch him wreck everyone else, people love a car crash when they aint driving.

The whole reason Bruce Wayne does what he does is because of a severe and un-suppressible rage, to the point of psychiatric instability, over his parents' murder, so he's like the Hulk in that regard. He also developed a God-complex. No, not Superman's messianic complex where he considers it a moral responsibility not to interfere with the law in his protection of the human race. Batman goes a bit further, he's like, "I'm no saint, I'm no savior, I'm a badass who thinks the police can't deal with this shit and I'm the only mother****er in this city who's qualified enough to be a vigilante."

That sounds more like an "anti-hero's" attitude. Like Punisher's, for example.

He has one rule that The Punisher does not.

Which actually makes his work a lot more difficult (Batman's).

I don't believe that Batman has shown moral compromise save on very, very rare occasions that would push any good man over the edge. That even goes for Superman on occasion. It's actually less common for Batman to let emotions get the better of him because of a mastery of his body and mind; emotional control and stress-management offer him a nearly interminable ability to cope with terror and mayhem.

So Batman can't really be qualified as an anti-hero, either. He actually is qualified enough to be a vigilante, as well. What he does defies logic. That's why he's considered a superhero. He is realistic in some ways, a lot of real historical people have defied logic with their acts in life. Batman does not defy physics like Superman or the others, rather he uses his knowledge of physics to aid him in combating the superpowered.

I agree with pretty much everything you say. I was never dissing Bats. I think he's a very cool character it's just that I like Clark much more than him or anybody else for that matter.

I'm not much into the costumed superheroes. Partially because they looks silly but also because they're generally poorly written.

At the top of my head I'm going with Hellblazer.

Constantine himself, yo.

Jesse Custer is up there.

But costumed hero? Invincible.

Spiderman, Fantastic Four and Daredevil were the comics I used to read. After the MCU movies, I've really liked Iron Man though.

I also love Batman

Spider Jerusalem is awesome.

The ideal superhero (to me) has always been Superman. He's the epitome of what a superhero should be, imo.

But my favorite definitely has to be Batman. I grew up watching and reading his comics, cartoons, TV shows, and movies. He was the first superhero that I idolized.
