Simple. I believe that Iron Man is a better super hero than Batman.

We split the BOP. I have to show why Iron Man is better and my opponent must show why Batman is better.

Now because comic book universes are so vast, we are only allowed to use the mainstream continuity of the respective super heros and/or their most recent film franchises. Also critizing opponent's super hero is very much allowed.

3 rounds, 1st is for acceptance.

Argument 1: Tony Stark is much smarter than Bruce Wayne.
Batman is a pretty smart guy but he's an idiot compared to Tony Stark. Batman doesn't even build his own armor, he has Morgan Freeman do it. Tony built his own armor and a revolutionary power source in a cave. With a box of scraps.

Argument 2: Batman is much less effective with dealing with criminals.
Batman patrols Gotham and despite his best efforts Gotham is still pretty crappy. Batman's crime fighting method is; capture the criminal, imprison the criminal, wait for said criminal to escape, repeat. Iron man don't play that. Batman's entire rouge gallery can be solved with one word: missile. And Iron man has got plenty of those.

I have more arguments but let's see if you can get past these first.

I'll debate this with you if you want, Pro. I've done my share of Batman bashing. I suppose I could defend him for once.
