BURGEONING LADS OF SCIENCE

I'm Benito. I write comics; for example: Tales from the Bully Pulpit, The Tick New Series, Guarding the Globe, Hector Plasm, and EVEN MORE. I will talk about these AND MORE. FOR FREE, on your very own personal computing device.

In this week’s installment of Ask Chris, I examine the idea of Superman and Batman as Best Friends Forever, and boy does that set me off.

So please, if we can all stop being in third grade for a moment, let’s  all agree that ideas of one fictional protagonist being “more powerful”  than another are just silly arguments for children. I’ve never  understood it when adults tell me that they like Batman more than  Superman because Superman’s too powerful. The standard argument is that  if you’re reading a story where you’re bored because of Superman’s  powers, that’s the fault of the writer, but the flipside of that is also  true: If you truly believe that Batman’s going to lose because  someone wrote down that he’s a “normal human,” then you’re unclear on  how the concept of fiction works.

Yeesh.  Time to switch to decaf, buddy.

    I don’t care what anyone says - Bats and Supes should always be portrayed as BFFs.

    It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally Chris Sims is completely right about something.
