    Favorite Superhero?

    Just a little thread because i love superheros and am ALWAYS curious as to why people love which ones or hate which ones.

    My favorite: Spider-Man
    Why: Well its because Spider-man is pretty flawed. Dude has bad luck and is not perfect at all. If he is not trying to save someone, his girlfriend is getting killed by his arch-nemesis or his arch nemesis just broke 5 other villains out of prison and they wanna go use the NYC as a playground. Plus, i can have an emotional connection to the character. unlike....SOME..."Heroes"

    My least favorite: Superman
    Why: Superman is not flawed. AT ALL. NOBODY can emotionally connect to the character. He can do anything so there is no room for an exciting story unless one of his super-pals are in the mix or, if hes suddenly overwhelmed by kryptonite. Which is the most retarded and over-used macguffin in all of story-writing history. I mean sure he started the superhero craze, and ill respect him for that. But i am pretty hard-pressed to find a reason to like the guy. The Big Blue Boyscout pisses me off.

    So tell me guys! Who do you love? Who do you hate? Why?

    Batman. Real person. No special mutant abilities. He does his homework, works hard and smart at his craft, and is the only "superhero" who can put fear into his enemies and some of his hero pals. One bad mofo.

    I agree with Nate, has to be Batman. Utilizes his brain and hard-earned training. His origin is the best I think too. Many characters in comic lore would have gone sociopathic if their family was killed. (Example: the Punisher). Batman chose to exact justice on Gotham's criminals not vengeance.

    Batman, huh? I gotta share this with everyone.



    Don't get me wrong, Batman is good. And my kids love this video... so it's a win, right?

    Anything can be parodied. Imitation is the best form of flattery.

    I think that there's a horrible shame. I mean, no running fingers in front the eyes? For shame...

    Now, after that being said, my favorite superhero is a tough one. I like Wolverine, Batman and Spiderman, but for different reasons. Overall winner would be Wolverine, but I like Batman for being (at least remotely) relatable (being human and all, not so much the millionaire part unfortunately ) and Spiderman for his wisecracking and jokes. Super heroines are unfortunately rarely done as well, but I suppose that comes from the main target audience being male.
    Disclaimer!
    These are the ravings of an insane lunatic. Take nothing he/she/it says, does or looks like seriously

    Wonderful story with an exciting ending
