Catwoman

Catwoman is a fictional character associated with DC Comics' Batman franchise. Historically a supervillainess and often an antiheroine, the character was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, partially inspired by Kane's cousin, Ruth Steel, as well a... s actress Jean Harlow. The original and most widely known Catwoman, Selina Kyle, first appears in Batman #1 in which she is known as The Cat. She is usually depicted as an adversary of Batman, known for having a complex love-hate relationship with him. In her first appearance, she was a whip-carrying burglar with a taste for high-stake thefts. For many years Catwoman thrived, but from September 1954 to November 1966 she took an extended hiatus due to the newly developing Comics Code Authority in 1954. These issues involved the rules regarding the development and portrayal of female characters that were in violation of the Comics Code. Since the 1990s, Catwoman has been featured in an eponymous series that cast her as an antiheroine rather than a traditional villain. The character has been one of Batman's most enduring love interests.A popular figure, Catwoman has been featured in most media adaptations related to Batman   more

Rorschach

Rorschach is a fictional character and an antihero of the acclaimed 1986 graphic novel miniseries Watchmen, published by DC Comics. Rorschach was created by writer Alan Moore with artist Dave Gibbons, but as with most of the main characters in the s... eries, he was an analogue for a Charlton Comics character, in this case Steve Ditko's the Question and Mr. A.While the series has an ensemble cast, some consider Rorschach to be the protagonist as he drives most of the plot forward. In the beginning of the story, he is introduced as the only remaining active masked vigilante not employed by the government. A ruthless crime-fighter, his beliefs in moral absolutism — good and evil with no shades of grey — have driven him to seek to punish evil at all costs. Rorschach's mask displays a constantly morphing inkblot based on the ambiguous designs used in Rorschach inkblot tests, with the mask's black and white coloring consistent with Rorschach's sense and view of morality.Reception towards the character is positive and he has been referenced several times in other comic book stories and has appeared in other forms of media   more

In 2011 Raphael placed 23rd on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes, a list that did not feature any of his brothers   more

Superman is boring! He is overpowered, and he is a bland character with little to no history of WHY he went into crime fighting. His planet (that he never knew) blew up and he somehow just wanted to go into crime fighting. Yea, his fake dad died but I mean, he is just a bland character. Batman's is much more spiced up, he is realistic (because he is a billionaire) and he actually had a reason to go into crime fighting. Batman has a much more convincing and tasteful story line than in my opinion-any other super hero
