Batman is the best comic book superhero, not just because he's cool, but because he has no super-powers.Thus he is the most inspiring hero ever ,as everyone can aspire to be like him.

It's a troll debate.Please tell who you believe should be the best comic book superhero if you disagree.

May the best man win!..:)

Spiderman. He shares the textbook hero origin, like Batman, Orphan raised by an elderly foster parent, but he is the most normal hero aside from his power. He works a day job. He goes to college.

But the best part is the now cliched "with great power" lesson he must learn. Peter is always tempted to abuse his powers, but learns selflessness. Bruce never considers just retiring and being a rich guy. It's never even offered.

There you go. Increase the damn word limit.

But, Batman could have also lead a comfortable life like Bruce Wayne alone.He has no need to work or sacrifice his life, unlike Spiderman who is poor.
Notice how Spiderman is just thrust with greatness, the spider just happens to bite him and he is tempted all the time, but Batman made a conscious decision to become who he is.
Batman overcame immense personal losses(the woman he loved, a good friend, all his money) but still overcame it and is a symbol of hope for those who fall.

The comfortable life Bruce leads takes away from the character. If he wanted to stop crime, he would just create jobs. Peter was given his powers, yes, but he made the choice to become a hero too. Remember that Peter is an orphan too. Peter had to overcome the same losses, and resist the urge to use his powers for his own desires. In Ultimate Spiderman, he even mentions he lets himself be bullied to avoid suspicion. He is more human than Batman as a character. (even though he is a mutant)

Batman's Strength comes from his sheer will power and physical strength.Spiderman was just given it randomly.Batman had to make a conscious decision to defend justice, to be hated by all he loved solely for the sake of upholding Justice.

Batman lives in all of us.Batman is the best.Vote for Batman! vote Pro!

Spiderman is an average person who faces the same trials as Batman. The difference is a metric f*ckton of cash, which eases the issue. Peter made the same decision, only Bruce could have just provided more jobs to the economy, which would have reduced crime levels. Batman fights crime because he wants to punch people at night. Peter is a mutant, who faces the same issues as the X-Men, but receives no help.

Spiderman's story is that of doing the right thing in our position. Go Spidey! Vote Con!
