Superman is the best superhero ever!

Nothing you can say or do can stop that

Well, I have no idea why my opponent decided to challenge me personally but whatever.

Since superheros do not actually exist, I've decided that best means which superhero is is the coolest/most interesting.
I now turn the debate over to my opponent.

My opponent doesnt dispute my definition, so that's the one we'll be using to weigh the round.

I agree with my opponents argument, but that's why superman sucks. I remember watching a superman movie, and the guy got a bullet shot right through his eye, and the bullet ended up crushed. Like seriously, what the fvck? That's lame. Newsflash to all superman fans: If your hero has ultra powers and can only be hurt by some kind of rock lightyears away hes a f@g. That's like God coming down and having an epic and heroic battle against an anthill. Sweeeeeet. (That was sarcasm for those of you with IQ's too low to detect it).

I am not alone in my sentiment. In fact, Super Hero commentator Anthony Burch feels the same way[1]. Let's look at some of what he's written:

“It almost goes without saying, but if your hero cannot possibly be killed in any instance which does not somehow involve an incredibly rare space-rock, then you’ve got one boring-@ss hero. It’s sort of like watching Neo fight all the agent Smiths in The Matrix Reloaded: we know our hero can’t possibly die, and he doesn’t act like he’s in any danger whatsoever, so the entire fight is a foregone conclusion and the audience becomes bored out of their skulls.

I mean, yeah – we obviously go into most superhero stories more or less positive that the hero won’t die, but they still entertain us because the hero doesn’t know that. Spidey is always scared, even if only a little, that one of the Green Goblin’s pumpkin bombs will be the end of him; Daredevil is fully aware that a well-placed projectile from Bullseye could kill him. As a result, these characters act with restraint and forethought; since Superman knows nothing bad can happen to him no matter what, he acts with no such subtlety. He flies headlong into every conflict, fists thrust forward, because he knows he’s in no immediate danger. Thus, we know he’s in no immediate danger, and we get bored out of our fvcking skulls.”

I contend that batman is the best superhero. Here we have a sexy, brilliant, crime fighting billionaire with a sick@ss car, and no mythical super powers just his own two fists and whatever technology he comes up with. Sounds like a clash A bad@ss to me.

Well we were both wrong! Superman can be defeated by these different superheroes and supervillians!

He is considered the strongest and most powerful superhero of all- but some of the others are actually capable of defeating him.

For example:

Good Guys-
Batman (with kryptonite)
Captain Marvel
Green Lantern
Flash (can outrun him anyway)
Martian Manhunter
Dr. Fate
Orion

Bad Guys-
Doomsday (actually killed him)
Lex Luthor (with kryptonite)
Metallo
Brainiac
Darkseid
General Zod
Bizarro
Parasite
Mr. Mxyzptlk
Lobo
Sinestro

My opponent drops all of my arguments and then gives a list of people that he says could beat superman. No logical justification nor source, so don't consider it. Moreover he admits "Well we were both wrong" I wasn't wrong, superman is a boring@ss peice of sh!t who's too much of a pvssy to fight anyone half his power because he's a llittle b!tch. But my opponent admits he's wrong so I win.

Vote Con!
