batman or iron man?

Batman in a heartbeat. I grew up on Batman and he has always remained my favorite super hero. He has just been always the most interesting character out there, with villians that weren't just lunatics, but actually challenged him. You can also do so much stuff with Batman that you can't do with other heroes, like really delve into the human psyche. I always maintained that Batman: The Animated Series was the best representation of Batman, that was until The Dark Knight which I named as my fave movie of the decade in my blog. That movie was just so well done, that it really moved comic book movies into an area where can be respected along side films like The Departed or Mystic River. However, now I am actually reading the comic books based on Batman, and they are soooo fucking good. If you wanna see something truly amazing done with Batman that has a striking art style, and will keep you thinking about it for months, read Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth. It blew my mind!

So, yeah, Batman all the way!

Just don't hurt me!
