Batman is better than superman
Debate Rounds (3)
I already anticipate the lazy and simplistic argument that "all batman is, is a man with a lot of money." I have to say not true. his wealth is a crux in the writing that can allow interesting plot development. While superman takes the usual path(His person is his personality and His superhero is his mask.) Batman flips that concept on its head.(Bruce Wayne is the facade and Batman is his person). Bruce Wayne(Not batman) Plays a pivotal role in the plot line, way more than Clark Kent ever could. its almost as if batman, whatever role he is playing, is in a constant fight to keep the crime of the city at bay. Not to mention the plethora of ingeniously written antagonist. The Joker revealing truths about our own society allegorically by pulling all of Gotham's right strings, as violent as they maybe, still he does it jestingly. Two face who nuances the notion of fate by using a coin to make his decisions, as if it absolves him from being the one that's committing the crime. Most importantly batman is a fallible human being. Go ahead and mock batman for not being a true superhero I will applaud along with you. That is what makes Batman a much more compelling story line for those who actually appreciate a fallible human being as an protagonist. Not swayed by riches he is a philanthropist, and uses his money not for himself but does put his life on the line every night to keep the criminal masterminds at bay. Hes money does have limits and so are his capabilities, unlike superman's apathetically written superpowers. Batman as well runs into moral conflictions and legitimate knots to untie. Not just the very typical Lady-Love interest that is too easy to write for a comic book written for a boy who still dreams of what a woman's warmth feels like.

I would call the cons response a lazy rebuttal but it didn't even do that. It was simply a response showing a serious lack of comprehension of the initial argument. All my foe decided to do was spend a minute of his time looking up the abilities and embedding superman's wiki page.
Allow me to demonstrate exactly what I mean. Allow me to show you the same apathy in which you showed me. Do you not think batman would have the resources to obtain Kryptonite? All batman would need to do is equip it from his belt. Being better prepared as a man who is experienced in fighting with Human strength, superman would be rendered unprepared. Superman would fall.
Now if you would do me some courtesy and adhere to the point of the issue. Which comic is written better?
Batman and Superman are more than just comic books.
Superman would kill him I made that clear in my first argument
Batman is quite silly in his old cartoon show little kids use to laugh at it there was nothing serious about it.
I love me some Batman, but more effort was put into making Superman
The first true superhero. (without Superman, Superhero never would have been invented therefore, Superman made Batman, in a sense.)
Plus my opponent never wished to illustrate as to why he believes superman required more effort to write, I did my best efforts to express why the visa-versa is true. Very lazy of him. I wished a more worthy opponent
as to the laughable batman cartoon. I only mean to express that superman is laughable without even trying. Illuminated in my very first argument.
Who cares who came before who, which comic book is written better. It is too bad that this is the last round. Otherwise I would have stressed again that my opponent didn't keep on making lazy half witted arguments. Not once ever giving a proper rebuttal to any of the arguments I posted.
Holy Knock-out drops batman! Try again!
