Superman is better at flying, looking through walls, and stopping meteors from flattening Metropolis.

Batman is better at swinging on a rope, driving the Batmobile, and figuring out the Riddler's riddles.

 :lol:

In other words, they're both pretty cool!

This is really a useless question. :roll: Each has certain things they are good at but they step off of those areas they are kind of useless. Also how good they are varies on the writer and the period (Gold, Silver, Bronze, Iron) you are dealing with.

For example for much of the Silver Age Superman could not analyze his way out of a paper bag. For example in the silver age he knew Luthor had made an antidote but when he did his research he goes through over 1000 experiments and then stupidly deduces there is no antidote. In the Bronze age Superman got much better in this regard and finally started to think about things rather than just blinding rushing in as he had during the Silver Age.

And now that we're in the modern age, he's a moron again.  Cheesy

Really, when it comes to comic book fans, a smarter character isn't necessarily "better."  Wolverine won't be making it into Mensa any time soon, and he's wildly popular.  The Hulk has been a huge fan favorite for decades and he's got barely enough brain function to maintain bladder control.

Anyway, "better" is always a matter of taste.  I've never understood why fans feel a compulsion to build their own favorites up by tearing every other character down.  Superman is great for what he is, Batman is great for what he is (though both are mishandled lately).

LOL  I think this has been debated ever since they were introduced and it will never be settled. We all have our favorites and reasons why.

I think Nightwing's nailed this one right on the head. Neither character is "better" than the other, unless you boil it down to a matter of personal pereference. For example, my preference is for Superman, but is he actually a "better" character than Batman? No. The reverse is just as true. And I also agree that both have been handled stupidly of late. But I got my first look at Batman: Dark Detective and it was like a breath of fresh air.
