Must There Be a Superman?

It’s the debate that haunts playgrounds and comic shops around the world – who’s better, Batman or Superman? If you were one of the cool kids, the answer was always Batman. Batman has all the cool toys, and he wears black, and he’s a dark and edgy character. Superman’s just a big blue boy scout, and no one that powerful could ever be interesting. So why is Superman such an enduring character? Michael Medina sent us this video he made last April that sums it up really well.

I love this speech because it sums up the Man of Steel so well. Superman is still a special, needed character in our lives, and there’s a lot of good reasons why he’s still popular after all these years. Batman’s a character to enjoy, but Superman’s a character to aspire to be.

Now if we could just get a movie that gets that across…

Mike Fatum
Referred to as a God Among Men, the Greatest Man that Ever Lived, and That Dude Over There…No, The Dude with the Long Hair and the Goatee…Yes, That Guy, Mike has grown up being known and loved around his apartment. In addition to being a successful film director and editor, he loves video games, movies, comic books, board games, and his wife and cat. He’s been friends with Jarys for over a decade now, and they started hosting a radio show together on college that became the genesis for the Ace of Geeks Podcast. When he realized he had so many talented friends who could write, the Podcast became an entertainment website, and here we are.
