Quotes About Superman And Batman

"See, Batman is different. Hes mortal. Hes got a real life to risk. Superman just has to avoid Kryptonite. Big deal. Superman fears nothing because outside a few very specific circumstances where he might encounter some stupid rock, nothing can possibly do him in. Batman has the same vulnerabilities as the rest of us, so he has the same fears as us. Thats why hes the most courageous: because he can put those aside and fight on regardless. My point is this: the more you have to lose, the braver you re for standing up. Thats why Batman is superior to Superman, and thats why I am infinitely smarter then you.I am a genius. I have won.Pffft! Whatever. Ill bet Batman wont be too loud about his superiority when Superman is belting seven shades of shit out of him." - Author: Craig Silvey
