Here I will list a few reasons as to why Batman is the superior to Superman


Batman is Smarter

Superman is meant to be super-intelligent, but his solution to every problem is either charging straight at it with his fists up or throwing things. If any Kryptonian kindergarten teachers had survived, Superman would spend most of his life in timeout. That's why his most famous villain is mastermind Lex Luthor: Someone has to do interesting things to keep the story moving. But because evil plans end the instant Superman finds the planner, they're based on distraction and deception, so we get to follow a confused man who mindlessly punches everything for four issues until he stumbles into someone who knows what he's doing. That's the exact plot of ending up in a mental institution.


Batman has a better message

Another odd point for a man dressed as a giant domme-animal. But Batman's core message is that anyone can reach for the stars if they're kicked in the @ss at escape velocity. His whole point is being better than superheroes despite not having superpowers. His lesson is "Life sucks, wear a helmet, then install bat-ears and sonar technology into the helmet so you can track life down and make it swallow its own sucking tongue." Batman worked and learned to be everything he is, while Clark Kent has to pretend he wasn't just born better than everyone else. Sure, Bruce inherited infinite dollars, but that's only because a janitor of vengeance working overtime to afford moparangs isn't as cool. Batman penniless and alone kicks just as much @ss (and has been in at least three story arcs). Superman is meant to represent everything humanity can strive to be, the pinnacle of selflessness, but he only reinforces the lesson "If you weren't born to the right parents, you are sh!t out of luck." Which is a weird angle for someone meant to embody the American dream.

Reasons why Superman is superior to Batman:

1. He could destroy Batman (and basically anything else) with a punch. You listed this as a weakness, but, in the end, superman wins most of his battles.

2. He doesn't have to rely on anyone else (Alfred) in order to get the job done. He does work with other superheroes, but he's more of a helper for them than they are for him.

3. Superman's back would not have been able to be broken by Bane. And Batman's entire body would be easily broken by Doomsday... And Bane... And pretty much anyone else that gets a hold of him

I'm sorry that my opponent didn't see the need to complete his own debate.

To sum up my argument: Superman is better than Batman

Superman is overrated. He's pretty much a god with no weaknesses other than a certain type of rock.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made some good arguments, however by forfeiting the last round he was not able to rebut any arguments from Con. As such Con gets arguments points. Pro also loses conduct points due to the forfeit. No sources used, so no source points awarded. Grammar and spelling is a tie.
