DC Comics has been around for eighty years, and their very first superhero was the Man of Steel, the Kryptonian who took refuge on Earth, aka, the Superman. Written by Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, Superman debuted in Action Comics#1 (former name of DC Comics), in April 1938. The iconic superhero has been regularly making appearances on various mediums like radio, newspaper strips, television, video games, comic books, and movies. Born on the planet Krypton, the alien had to leave his planet as an infant when it was about to blow up. His Kryptonian ship landed in rural America and was adopted by a farming couple who gave him the name Clark Kent. Over the years, the Superman has become a symbol of hope, justice and the American way of living. Along with Batman and Wonder Woman, he is considered to be a part of the big three of DC Comics, and it won’t be wrong to say that he is one of the two most popular superheroes in the world, the other being the Batman.
A creation of writer Bill Finger and artist Bob Kane, Batman debuted in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. He is also known by several other titles such as The Caped Crusader, The World’s Greatest Detective, and The Dark Knight. Batman’s secret identity is Bruce Wayne, who is a billionaire, American playboy, philanthropist, and owner of the business empire known as Wayne Enterprises. Over the decades, Batman has emerged as an extremely popular character and just like Superman, he is also featured in various mediums like comic books, animation, TV shows, video games and the movies.
There is a perennial competition between these two DC icons. While everyone keeps arguing about which one of the two is more popular or will win in a fight, there are some people who take an off-beat approach to check which one of them is a better option to date. So let us forget about their strengths and fights for a while and see how Superman and Batman will fare against each other in a dating war.
