Iron Man is cool, but he seems to rely even more so on technology than Batman. Without it he'd pretty much be screwed. While Batman doesn't necessarily need tech to kick ass.
Precisely why I dislike him. Nothing special about him. He's supposed to be a super hero. As in, more superb than other humans. Not just a guy with a superb checkbook.
Ya, he is pretty similar in the way he fights crime.
For me it just comes down to when I was exposed to them. I used to watch the Batman and Spiderman cartoons when I was a kid and Batman was always my favourite.
A lot of you will find this shocking but until the movie Iron Man came out a few years ago I had never seen any TV show or read a comic with him in it. It was literally my first time experiencing anything Iron Man so I'm still new to the whole thing. And at 21 it's kind of hard for me to get attached to a superhero so Batman stays my favourite and probably always will.
Batman is an anti-hero. A villain whose actions are ultimately good.
And this is indeed his appeal.
But, no, Batman is not my favorite.
My favorite is the ultimate 1980s anti-hero, The Punisher.
And I will never forgive Hollywood for ****ing him up.
