I think there is a great deal of truth about J.D. Fields's post about Captain America. Superman no longer has the same impact on comic book readers as he had sixty-years ago and few comic book readers can relate to Superman at all today. This is the reason why Smallville is in many ways different from the Superman comic book incarnation. Left with only Captain America and Batman then which is the better superhero?

Captain America although a bit out of fashion today he still resonates in some ways more than Batman because he stands for the American Dream and against corrupt government. As a leader Captain America is the best across all comic books. However as an individual superhero I got to give the props to Batman because if you read the best Batman comics he is a very complicated character with a great deal more depth than Captain America. As a symbol though you just cannot beat Captain America because he stands for the American Dream. So then which of these two is the better hero? The answer lies in the secret third contestant, Optimus Prime!!!

I am just kidding, Batman is still better than Captain America because he is just a regular guy, he has the best rogues gallery, his character was inspired by the great pulp fiction heroes (Conan, Tarzan and the Shadow just to name a few.), Bruce wants to have a normal life but Batman won't let him, and Batman is a symbol that while not as grand as Captain America's symbol it can last virtually forever in any age even one where the US has not been created yet or (and) has been gone for thousands of years. Take in point the example of The Batman episode: Artifacts.

Well, Conan and Batman both fight with weapons, and Tarzan has an army of jungle animals to help him, and Batman has an army of side-kicks to help HIM.

And aren't Conan and Tarzan both known for their deductive skills?

:D

Batman was inspired by Conan and Tarzan.

Conan is the greatest warrior in his world, who rescues damsels in distress, seeks riches, is a king of a nation, and uses his mind to understand the world around him and defeat his enemies.

Like Conan Batman is the greatest warrior in his world, rescues damsels in distress, has money like crazy (So he does not need to steal.), Bruce is the king of Gotham City (He is the richest guy in Gotham.) uses his mind to understand the world around him and defeat his enemies. Furthermore like Conan Batman has fought his own share of humanoid monsters like Man-Bat and a Werewolf.

Tarzan lost both his parents, is an orphan, and fights and kills animals. Batman like Tarzan lost both his parents, is an orphan and fights and kills animals. Furthermore like Tarzan mimics the actions of an ape, Batman mimics the action of a Bat.

In one of the very first stories of Batman in Detective Comics Batman kills a gorilla. Batman also killed a large bull and a leopard during Denny O Neil's run in the 1970s.

Ah, thanks! I honestly didn't know about the killings Batman committed during the Golden Age (other than those of human criminals), but you also reminded me of how Batman killed the shark in "Joker's Five-Way Revenge", the story that returned the KILLER Joker to comicdom.

If they'd kept The Joker low-key like THAT, I'd like him a LOT better.

"Joker's Five-Way Revenge" WASN'T the return of the "Killer" Joker to the comics! It was ACTUALLY not even a Batman comic that this version of the Joker returned!

It was in, of all places, World's Finest #177! Joker didn't actually KILL anyone in that issue, but it wasn't for lack of trying. He shot Robin with a pistol, and used his lethal laughing gas in a duel against Lex Luthor!
