Superman vs. Batman Not often in literary history do two characters contrast and match each other so well. Superman and Batman are the figure heads of DC comics and were the only characters keeping the comic giant above the rising waters of collapse. It is natural that the characters, both sixty plus years in print, have acquired a massive fan base. The fan base of the two juggernauts of comics have been known to attack one another with claims on who is superior or who is the most interesting. Point 1 The origin of each character is significant.
In the article “Superhero Obsession: Why We Love Fantasy” by Jon Meyersohn the author is trying to argue that, despite the fictitiousness of comic books and the extent to comic book characters seem superior to normal human beings, comic book characters have proven to be some of the most influential sources of inspiration, either for good or bad.
