Okay, I’ll confess that I haven’t actually seen the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But in my personal comparison of the two iconic superheroes, Batman wins almost every time.
I should explain that I grew up in the 1960s and hadn’t really paid much attention to superheroes until 1966 rolled around. Superman, who needed him? From what I could see of the black and white Adventures of Superman television series that originally aired between 1952 and 1958 and reran in an after school time block during the mid-60s, Superman was a boringly red-white-and-blue moralistic hero wearing saggy thermal underwear and a cape. Yes, he could fly, but the special effects didn’t even live up to the low technical standards of the time. Ho-hum. Next!
