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!!!
