batman or superman?

Wow, tough one. Really. Batman is a great "real" super-hero in that he's a human being like anyone else but stronger, smarter, richer and has amazing tools and gadgets and weapons. But he's "just" a man. Superman, however, has a deep and (somewhat) relatable back story. Not only is he an alien who didn't know so until his (difficult) teen years but he is an orphan. Then he discovers he has immense powers. Including flight. Then come his noblesse oblige and responsibility to the people of the world. Heavy stuff even for a super-hero. As far as franchises go they are about even. Recently Batman movies have been far better than past Superman movies.
I grew up with Star Wars AND Star Trek and I used to easily say; "Star Wars over Star Trek". In light of SW Episodes 1,2 and 3 and what Lucas has done with the whole franchise I now pick Star Trek over Star Wars. I'll go with BATMAN.
