I think batman was more heroic because he was just an ordinary man with no powers and still knew the dangers but did his job on saving people. He didnt need superpowers and he still saved lives.

Side: Batman

A hero is someone who goes beyond their powers to save people and if Superman just so happens to have special powers well atleast he uses them for good deeds and not for the bad. I think Superman is more heroic because he was given more talent to be a bigger hero!

Side: Superman

Superman is more heroic because he saves citizens lives and he's not even from earth. He can save more people at any time. He can make more of a difference than batman that only protects Gotham City.

On my point of view, i think superman is more heroic than batman. Superman is able to do more things than batman, and has alot more powers than batman too. Besides superman is able to safe people all day long, and batman can't he can only safe people at night. which it dosen't make any sense with batman, what would happend if something horrible was happenning during the day no one could be able to help "with out" him. this is why according to me i think superman is more heroic than batman.

Superman is more heroic because he saves lives of people even if he dont know them.

He was created to save lives. He is more heroic because he is the one who flies and has super strength.

And i think those 2 powers make him more stronger than the others.

Side: Superman

Superman did not become a hero. He was born superman. Yes he has powers, and yes it is harder for him to be killed but the chance of him dying is the same as batman's chance. If Superman would have to do something to sacrifice himself to save the world from evil he would.

Side: Superman

I think superman is more heroic because he actually goes out in the streets and saves peoples lives because its the right thing to do with th powers that he was born with.While batman is only doing this because of a personal affair that he has with the villian.

I belive that superman is more heroic then batman because superman has powers, and he dosen't misuse. plus superman is more humble in his Clark Kent form then Bruce Wayne, who shows off his money.

in no way is superman more heroic. he has those gadgets for a reason,so he can fight. batman doesnt need super powers to fight crime, thats why he so much more heroic.

Superman used powers to fight, so how does that make him heroic? Batman might have used gadgets but not all the time, he would fight most of the time. So Batman would be more heroic. Oh Batman also risked his life more then superman did.

I think Superman is more heroic because you hear more about Superman then you u do Batman. Batman was just a man that was a bat that helped people. Superman was a SUPERman. He had super powers and could help people in more ways than Batman could.

I don't really remember superman or batman, but if i had to choose I would pick superman as being more heroic because he would fly around saving people.

Side: Superman

To start, Superman was around first. He was the person who saved people from world-dominating criminals back in the day of black and white TV. Superman didn't wear armor, he really did fly, he even battled through tragedies with kryptonite. Sure, Superman does have powers and Batman used technology on his side. Superman didn't have to mask his face. He just kept on the "DL" all the time in his real life. That's a true hero.

I think superman is more heroic because i think he does more then batman does such save people from dieing all day everyday. Batman can only work at night and thats dumb cause what if there is crime going on in the day then people would die while he working. Then on the other hand superman can work at any time of the or night cause he go harder

Superman is very symbolic to many children, and i think superman is more heroic because he can fly around the world saving everyone.While batman is just in one city and he still has trouble saving all of them.

Side: Superman

Superman is more heroic. He was born with his powers therefore setting him aside from all others. His powers come form within and are natural, while on the other hand all of Batmans powers come from his gadgets. Although they are both heroic and perform good deeds for the city Superman came here and started to protect the world early off while Batman started later on in his life.

Response to:

"I think superman because batman is just a bat. So when we have a problen superman can fly with his natural born powers and save the world. Batman can to but he really can't fight because he is a bat."

If you have ever seen the movie Batman Begins, in the begining he falls down a well that is filled with bats. Later on in the movie he visits the same well and over comes his fear of bats. The bat outfit is symbolic to him overcoming his fear.

Batman is not a bat in any way. The Bat comes from his symbol. He risks his life to help others he is way more of a hero than Superman.

Side: Batman

i believe that batman is more heroic. batman risks his life knowing that he can die at any one bullet to the face any one knife to the abdomen. superman is not human, he is an alien that cant die and is not human. batman is more heroic by far because he has the guts to fight crime even though he is merely a mortal man.

Side: Batman

Not only is Superman an alien, I think he's an illegal alien.

Side: Batman

I feel Batman Is more heroic because he is human and has more to lose yet he still fights evil every night, while thinking of others before himself. Batman is also put in realistic situations so in a way if you think about it we could have a Batman in real life as long as he has the cool gadgets.

Side: Batman

Superman has weaknesses. Batman doesn't. If you were to do the math, Batman is puting himself in danger every foe he faces. One wrong move and he could be dead. On the other hand, superman has one true weakness. If a bullet were to hit him he wouldn't budge. Yes, he puts himself in danger but when you think about it, who is the true hero?

Side: Batman

I can't really say who is more heroic because I have only watched a little bit of Batman and I have never watched Superman. So I will side with Batman being the most heroic. Batman not only has an awesome car but he is always helping someone, and he owns his own company. He also has a city and a pretty nice mansion. Superman well like I said I have never watched the show or movies so I don't know what is so great about him. Batman is who I am siding with. GO BATMAN!

Side: Batman

I think batman is more heroic because he is more human than superman is. If he gets shot or something, then he will die, so he risks his life more. And plus, he has a cuter outfit and a nice car! =]

I think Batman is more heroic because Superman was born with his powers where Batman has to work at what he does. He decided to help his city out and worked at it, yeah he had the money to do so, but still, he has to actually work at it, Superman was lucky enough to be born with his powers and was raised to help others, Batman was living in a bad place and decided to help out by at least trying to make it a better place.

Side: Batman
2 points

I would have to say batman, because he is so ordinary. He is just this guy from the city that has this brain power to know when to go stop a crime. He doesnt have any super powers, so if he gets shot thats it. But he takes that chance, cause he wants to see things right. And he is willing to risk his life to make it happen.

Side: Batman

I believe Batman to be more heroic, because Superman's power is superstregth...that is it!Out of all superhero's, Superman is the lamest! Batman has a cool, animal based power. He is smooth, and has out tons of movies...superman has none that have gone mainstream like Batman's!

Side: Batman

The reason its batman is because he risks his own life to defend the weak as in for superman he cant die by a bullet. Sure superman is great. Thats why he is a SUPERHERO not hero. two different things about superhero and hero. Therefore Batman is more heroic than Superman

Batman sacrificed his normal life so that he could save Gotham City from crime. Superman was born into his powers, if he had had a choice he would have chosen to be normal. Batman made a choice, Superman didn't really have one.

Side: Batman

Batman grew up in a decaying environment such as Gotham City.

He grew up rich and privileged, but also in despair and fear from the haunting memory of the murder of both his parents at such a young age.

Yet, Batman took that inner turmoil and decided he would make a difference and fight the evil which took the lives of his parents.

He gave much more than he ever received- a true hero.

Side: Batman

Definitely Batman, He is the definition of a Hero. He has all the money he could ever use. He could live the life that everyone dreams of, yet he goes out and gives justice to the people of Gotham, and he doesn't expect anything in return.

Side: Batman

I belive that Batman is a much better hero than Superman. A hero does not have to have supernatural powers. Batman has been puting his life on the line to help his people. By him being a normal person he show that anyone can do something to make a diffrence in the world.

Side: Batman
1 point

Batman has a better reason and its because he doesnt want people or children to fall into his shoes from the past. He is secretive, and very mysterious.

Superman is also mysterious but he isn't always there for people. Unlike Batman, Superman has a job while Batman is already rich and can focus on how to help people

i think batman is more heroic because he does not have any super powers. he can not fly, he does not have super human strength, he does not have any powers like that he just uses he mind to overcome and defeat his foes.

Batman, by far, is the greater hero to me. He poses a greater risk to his self then superman does. Superman doesnt actually sacrifice his own life while saving others cause he knows that he will not die. It also takes more courage for Batman to do what he does because he doesnt have the powers that superman does.

Side: Batman
1 point

i would have to say that batman is more heroic because to be a hero you have to help others in need. people do prefer superman because of his super powers but thats the difference between batman and superman. batman dosent have super powers and still kicks ass so im a have to say that batman is a better hero.

I think Batman is more HEROIC because not only is he just an ordinary person trying to help others, he doesn't do things for publicity, notice how he wears a mask and does not tell people his identity of being a hero. He saves lives without having any special powers because he truly cares about people and asks for nothing in return.

Side: Batman
1 point

I believe that Batman is more heroic due to the fact that he is more susceptible to death. Knowing that, he still fights evil and risks his life many times a day for others. Unlike superman, batman does not have super powers which, to me, makes him more heroic.

I think batman is more heroic then superman. Batman is more ordinary then superman.

Batman is a more heroic character because he does not have the aid of super powers. Batman uses his intelligence to out smart the villain and bring justice. He risks his life to help out others, knowing that he could be killed at any moment. He uses the bat symbol to strike fear in the criminals.

Im a superman fan , but once it comes to whoes more heroic between superman and batman ill have to go with batman. Batman is not n ordnary hero, most heros have gifts or powers. Batman is just a man, i mean hes rich but hes just an ordnary man fighting crime. He has gadgets and stuff but thats all he has, he cant fly, hes not super strong, etc, hes just someone that protects Gotham City.

Side: Batman

Batman is way more heroic.

He doesnt need super powers to kick some butt. =]

Plus he is just a mortal, he could've died at any time saving people, on the other hand superman couldnt die.

Side: Batman

To me batman is more heroic because he has no special powers and he also chose to be batman which makes him more heroic because he knows that he is risking his life for the good of the people.

Side: Batman

I believe Batman is more heroic, because hes always putting his life in danger just to save a life. Plus hes a real human and he has to work to become a hero and powers so thats better, unlike superman was born with his powers so batman is more heroic.

Side: Batman

I think that batman is more of a hero than superman for the simple fact that superman was born with his powers. Who wouldnt be able to save people if they were as fast as the speed of light or could leap over tall buildings. But batman is a pure example of hard work and determination because if you think about it batman is just like me or you born by a human an raised by a human but his choices are what made him great, made him a hero

To me batman is more of a super hero then superman. Batman risks his life for the people of Gotham city knowing he isn't immortal to things like bullets and any other type of weapon that can kill him.

Batman is way more heroic than Superman. Why? Batman chose to be a hero yet Superman was born a hero. Batman loves to be a hero, Superman sometimes doubts of he does.

Side: Batman

A hero is somebody who fully devotes them self to helping others, knowing the consequences and honors of it. In this case I would have to say that Batman is the true hero. Not only does he go out into the night to save people and Gotham city, but he does it with no super powers. Unlike Superman, Batman creates his gadgets, his plans, and his strategies. He manages to capture the villains, save the city, his love, and many civilians all at the same time. Superman has his invisible car, can fly, super strength, and x-ray vision; and does the same thing as an everyday human being does. Superman's only weakness is kryptonite, but Batman can be killed any way a normal human being can. So with these examples shown, Batman is the more heroic in this case to me.

Side: Batman

Batman to me is more heroic than superman. The reason I say that is because Superman has powers and rarely gets hurt, but Batman on the other hand has no powers, he uses his mind and what he learns to help others rather than rely on super powers. To me he goes in to battle knowing he could die while superman goes to battle knowing he can't which I think is less heroic. Superman does say he will protect everyone with his life but he barely knows what that means, unlike Batman who always risks his life. Batman just seems more heroic just because hes human and still does what Superman does without powers.

Side: Batman
1 point

I think Batman is more heroic just because he has more to risk. If he gets shot he could die unlike superman. Batman also went through so much more training So he could learn to fight for justice. If superman lost his powers he would be completely useless and in my opinion a coward. And aside from fighting crime at night he has a compony to run in the daytime. Somehow he manages to it all and without complaining.

Side: Batman

I would have to say that Batman is more heroic that superman, because Batman has no supper powers and can die at any time. For someone who risk their life to save others thats heroic. We know that Superman is stronger and faster but he is not human that is why batman is a super human and is more heroic than any other super hero.

Superman is "AMAZING," he's everyones perfect ideal of a super-hero. He can pretty much do everything, x-ray vision, superhuman strength, super-fast, can fly, and so on... But I believe Batman is more heroic then Superman. Don't get me wrong Superman is a great hero and all, but Batman really is something else. Batman is a human, he is one of us. What makes Batman so heroic is even though he has no superpowers hes still out there fighting crime, doing all to protect the people, and save the world.

Side: Batman
1 point

I see batman as more of a hero for the fact that he is human and can be killed at anytime. He depend all on his natural ability to fight from more of a human basis with the protection of specialy built armor. Superman is more of an alien whose adpated to earth and is pretty much a immortal to all earthly subjects.

Side: Batman

Batman is so much heroic than superman. Batman can actually fight people without any super powers he actually risk his life but superman is the "man of steel" so he really doesn't have that much to worry about. Batman puts himself in way more danger that superman so that makes Batman more heroic.

Side: Batman
1 point

i think batman is more heroic because he was not given special powers to protect people. He had to learn how to save peoples life, and has to learn how to take pain and still save lives. He goes out every night knowing tonight could be the night he dies. He can't take a bullet in the chest and survive, but he takes more time and puts out more effort to saves lives. He actually puts his life 2nd behind other peoples life!

Batman is more heroic because he takes a chance at losing his life to save others. Superman only has one true weakness so he isnt really risking his life.

I don't know much about each character when it comes to being a good hero. I want to say that batman could be because he gets around in a nice car and its more realistic than flying around in a cape. I guess he is using more of is own human qualities to be a Good Samaritan

I think batman is more heroic for two reasons. Batman is an ordinary person without super powers he doesn't need powers to fight crime hes ready to defend people not matter what the consequences are. The second reason I believe Batman's a hero is because he doesn't go around bragging about how he saves lives he does it because he believes the right thing to do.Batman goes out every defending what he believes in,not caring that he could get hurt.

I think that Batman is more heroic because he is more lifelike to me. He is a human being just like us. Batman riskes his life more for people he doesn't need all the x-ray vision and extra stuff. I just think Superman is to cocky for me.

Batman can never die because he always knows ahead of time what gadget he's going to need and he packs his bat-belt accordingly before leaving the bat-cave.

Superman is somewhat invincible. He is able to withstand anything from a bullet to the gut or the arm. Batman, on the other hand, actually has the guts to save someone even though he does not have all the powers that can make him invincible, can make him see through walls, and shot lasers from his eyes. This is the reason why I believe that Batman is more heroic than Superman

I never really watched Superman or Batman but from what i know, i think Batman is more heroic simply because he doesn't have any "special powers". He is just another human fighting evil, and has more to lose than Superman. Superman is also a hero, but he has super powers and Batman doesn't.

Batman is humble about his good deeds, while on the other hand Superman flies around the city in spandex and an "S" on his chest. Batman appeals to the people more because he is more human-like. Plus, Batman has a sexy car and his outfit is "on point".

Batman is more heroic than Superman. Mainly because Batman can't fly or shoot laser beams out of his eyes, yet he still fights crime with a higher risk of dying.

Side: Batman

I agree, I believe Batman is more heroic than Supes. He doesn't necessarily have the powers and the capabilities that superman has, yet he stands for justice, and fights and protects the people. No matter the danger, be it a mad psychotic clown with laughing gas, and a pumped up steriod freak smashing through the city. He uses his mind and succeeds in saving the day... Batman is far more heroic than Superman.
