Top 5 Superheroes of All Time: #2 and #1. It all comes down to this. After a seemingly endless debate that has stretched across a week, we are at the last section of our Our last two contenders for the top spot could not be more opposite. One was born with an almost endless supply of super powers. The other employs all man-made gadgetry.
Even their alter egos are completely different. One is a loaded billionaire and the other pretends to be a lower middle class reporter. Of course, we are going to decide who is on top – Superman or Batman. Now, this Top 5 was so tough that we had to reach out to the DOM Twitter Squadron to help with our decision. The decision:
2) Superman- I am going to say it now. This was decided from our members here at DOM They responded in droves with a resounding vote for Batman to be #1. Listen, if I could choose who had the greatest powers/abilities, I would choose Superman every time. The Man of Steel can fly, shoot lasers from his eyes, and is impervious to just about everything (except kryptonite and the damsel in distress Lois Lane). The only ability he seems to lack is skill with the ladies. The movies, the comic books, and the legend of Superman are all… well… LEGENDARY. My biggest qualm is the lack of villains that Superman has faced. He is like the Boise State of Superheroes. He beats up on a wealthy Mr. Clean and that is pretty much it. On top of that, he never really catches and jails Lex Luther. He basically faces a well-known unranked college football team and that’s his only claim to fame. You add in the fact that he works as a reporter and that is somewhat troublesome. Come on man, you are stronger and faster than anyone on Earth. Why not collect your $5 million a week playing in EVERY sport in the US. Its not like the glasses you wear really mask your identity anyway (well, except, it does seem to fool the top tier investigative reporter Lois Lane).
1) Batman- I stated before, Batman was voted for by an army of members. He may not have the genetic powers, but he sure can whoop ass. He also has to fight off an SEC-level of opponents – Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Bane, Mr. Freeze, and the Mad Hatter just to name a few. Granted, I would have probably moved from Gotham a long time ago if I had that kind of money and it sucked that bad. But not Batman. He takes that adversity and smacks it in the face with the long pole of moral fortitude. Also Bruce Wayne has by far, outside of Tony Stark, the best alter ego. He is a super rich playboy that can purchase anything. He’s got swag with the ladies and doesn’t even need to tell them that he is the Caped Crusader to get laid. Further, Batman has been played by the likes of Michael Keaton – a DOM favorite – and has survived even the abysmal performance of George Clooney. Name me a Superhero that can drop a huge George Clooney in the toilet bowel and still survive? Only one and that is why he is the best. BATMAN!
