Batman is definitely the better character when comparing to superman clearly because he is more relatable and human like. Though dressing up like a bat may not be what humans generally do, the back story of fear and tragedy to why he becomes the bat of gotham touches all of our hearts. Though you may say superman is more powerful, you must face the fact that one weakness of superman always slows him down. But in batman's case we get the idea of a man more relatable to humans and bearing the same burdens we all do in life.
Yes, while batman maybe be more relatable for us as humans. Superman was orphaned as a young child some of us may not know what its like to lose your parents but more and more children are orphaned every day.
Though we all are being orphaned everyday batman proves to be a more worthy person. Having villains who constantly toil with his emotions, it shows us that batman is actually a hero who has gone through more tragedy than any other comic book character. Take a look at various issues and others, it is clear that Batman has not only lost his parents but Jason Todd, Barbera Gordon and in the movies he has even lost his best friend Rachel Dawes. When comparing that with Superman we understand that Batman has lost more in life and yet still sacrifices more to save his beloved city from the deadly hands of evil.
true Batman may have lost more people he cared about, but Superman had lost his entire planet. There was only two Kryptonians Superman and Superwomen. Batman is just a rich person with gadgets and money, but Superman is an accountant.
Batman had not had anybody from his childhood other than a humble butler. His whole life he had been a man without money who was out to seek revenge. Batman is also consistently popular only because he was the one super hero who actually behaves like a human being and a person who needs constant advice to keep going. Superman on the other hand despite losing an entire planet, at least had a mother and father who cared for him. Batman had none of these things. Batman even witnessed his parents death right in front of him. Two things even superman had never known about to feel the pain and agony. This just shows us that Batman is truly better than superman as he is the most influential character on our society today.
Yes, Batman witnessed his parents death, but Batman had Alfred who raised him as his own son so therefore Batman had a "parent". While Superman thought he was the last of his kind. Batman bought his gadgets with his money while Superman was born with his powers and even in the world today there are people being born who have incredible powers like the worlds strongest man he doesn't have to used steroids unlike a lot of body builders. So, therefore Superman and Batman are both great, but Superman is better.
