Why Batman v Superman?

Honestly? I could probably just post this if I wanted to give the quick, dirty, and honest answer.

“Who would win?”

It’s an age-old question of endless possibilities. It’s an especially prevalent question among the kind of nerd and geek communities that make up the core comic book fan communities. And there are some variations on the question that could arguably be described as legendary.

“Who’s the better captain, Kirk or Picard?”
“Who’s faster, Superman or The Flash?”

And, of course, “Who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman?”

Which, of course, is silly if you think about it too much. After all, they’re supposed to be on the same side. They are the “Worlds Finest”, after all. But, of course, when two forces meet, the human mind seems wired to try to pick a winner regardless. Does Superman stand a chance when all it takes is the Dark Knight’s prep-time and some Kryptonite? Or does the mere human nature of Batman mean he’s forever doomed to come in second to the Man of Steel?

We’ll probably never have a solid, definitive answer.

But that doesn’t make it any less fun to think, debate, and write about it.
