Fan Poll: Who Are You Rooting For, Batman or Superman?
Batman v Superman is looming on the horizon, and it will feature at least two huge battles between two of the most iconic superheroes of all time. Usually, we would ask you who would win in a fight, but honestly, with Superman's near-invulnerability and godlike abilities, the answer is realistically a foregone conclusion. Instead, we'll ask the question everyone really wants to answer: whom do you want to win in a fight, Batman or Superman?

Superman is the classic superhero (just look at his name!); he's brave, noble, well-intentioned, and earnest. He's also one of the most powerful heroes in the DC Universe, or any comics universe for that matter, so he's not exactly an underdog. Many would argue, and I would agree, that it's much more fun to root for a character like Batman, who doesn't have any superhuman powers (although, to be fair, he has a bucketload of money, which is essentially the real-world equivalent), and has a few character flaws. Superman, Captain America, and other superhero boy scouts are difficult to root for at times (unless, of course, they're fighting against fascism and oppression), because they're just a little too perfect, and therefore unrelatable. 

There's technically no right answer, although as Henry Cavill just learned, most children seem to agree with us:
