    Yes, if not in reality, than certainly in my imagination from now on.

    I heard this reported on the radio earlier tonight. Apparently they don't do much fact checking.

    I personally would love to see a justice league movie or at least a way better Superman movie. Superman Returns really didn't do justice to the greatest superhero of all time.

    Who's better?

    Anyways, my buddy here at school said that superman was technically the second strongest superhero behind the Green Lantern in true DC lore because the Green lantern's ring is made of some type of Kryptonite, but how can you hate on the man of steel?

    That might be worse than Jim Carrey.

    Alan Scott rules all and is the most powerful "big guy" in the DC Universe. Imagination and will power v. brute strength. No contest.

    But Sand is pretty fun, too, as is Black Adam.

    Carrey has shown he can be dark......it was just really bad writing and directing that ruined his turn as Riddler.

    To me though.....Riddler is another Joker almost....just lighter and less sadistic.

    I think they underused Scarecrow. I think Batman's villians....minus Joker...are pretty comical and fit more in the Batman from the 60's.

    I'd disagree 100% -- the villains in Batman's rogues gallery are, in my opinion, the best group in all of comics. There are individual villains from other series that stand out over individual Batman villains, but no other super hero has as many good villains as Batman.

    Some of them have comical pasts, but the vast majority of Batman villains can (and have been) written as genuinely compelling characters.

    There are plenty of non-comical villains for Batman -- including the Riddler (who suffers from obsessive-compulsion when it comes to leaving riddles and clues, but is otherwise not crazy at all), the Penguin (who, aside from his physical deformities, is a pretty normal dude), and the previously used Ras Al Ghul. They also have Mr. Freeze, who was ruined in the old Batman movie series, but is actually quite a tragic figure and an interesting character as well.
    Championships Matter.
