Iron Man is better than Batman: Why Batman is terrible

ironman-vs-batman.jpg

An argument I have had for some time is whether Iron Man or Batman is better. Both share a lot of similarities, the largest being that they both have no super hero abilities, unless you count being filthy rich… I believe strongly that Iron Man is not only better than Batman, but, that Batman is a terrible super hero.  (Disclaimer: I am not a big comic book reader so my arguments will be made solely referencing the movie universe.) 

Lets start with the super hero suits themselves.  Bruce Wayne is worth about 9.2 billion dollars, while Tony Stark is worth around 12.4 billion dollars. To any normal person three billion dollars is a lot of money! However, when you look at it in that amount there is nothing you can do with 9 billion you can’t do with 12. So I ask you, why is the bat suit leagues worse than the Iron Man suit? Yes, the suit Batman wears looks really cool, I will give you that. However, The Iron man suit is equipped with missiles, guns, energy weapons, an AI software, it can fly, is made of METAL, and a lot more. And it is clear it didn’t cost him much more because Tony has made near fifty of them already. On top of that, Bruce wasn’t trying to save money while making his suit because he orders hundreds of face pieces just to disguise wanting one for himself!.. Now, what you could say is that Batman has the batmobile, the batwing and his super computer in the bat cave, BUT, Tony doesn’t need any of those things because it is all already equipped in his one suit.

Alright, hopefully now I have convinced you that Bruce Wayne made a terrible decision to make the suit he did. Now I will convince you on why Bruce Wayne is just a terrible person! Isn’t this fun?.. So, Wayne enterprises is a very large corporation with a lot of money. The company does many, many things. One of which, largely supported by Bruce’s father Thomas, is charity. Thomas was a large supporter in helping the under privileged and supporting Gotham in any way he could. He would donate money, homeless shelters, and even built a train system to help people get to work! Not only did Bruce stop helping the poor he actually DESTROYED that train. Bruce Wayne could do much more for Gotham if he donated money, helped the poor, and pretty much everything his father did. Unfortunately he chose to run around looking like a bat instead. Tony’s father on the other hand, as well as Tony Himself, developed weapons and sold them to the highest bidder. Tony stopped that to help people.

Sure, without the suits Bruce would kick Tony’s ass. Bruce is basically a ninja and Tony is just a regular guy. Yet, despite that, Iron Man is a much better super hero. Bruce doesn’t want to help people, if he actually did he would follow in his fathers footsteps to help Gotham. Bruce wants to beat people up while satisfying his leather fetish.

 

Justice League trailer review

Please be good. Please be good. Please be good. Please. Please… So I get done writing my review for the Wonder Woman trailer and I refresh YouTube and see this. And it’s not like I’m going to IGNORE the fucking Justice League!.. The difference is that I’m more excited for Wonder Woman. I’m scared for this. I’m still going to see it, I’m not out of my mind, but I feel like it’s too much too soon. Yes, when Avengers came out it was only four years after Iron man and this is only three years of Man of Steel. However, there were five movies before Avengers that were all very good. Before this there is a shitty Superman movie, a shitty collaboration movie, and 2 that haven’t even been released yet. All I’m saying is there is every right to be VERY concerned about this and how quickly it was rushed… On to the trailer though!  It opens very dark and gritty, which is expected, but, what was unexpected was the tone change to Icky Thump, and that brought a smile to my face!.. We have our glimpse of Aquaman and I am IMPRESSED. Thats not even sarcasm! Throughout this trailer he is just a bad ass and I love it.We then move on to The Flash, who finally addresses the “man sitting in dark introduces himself cliche” and I was sold more… Thats where I stop being impressed though. This trailer starts off strong with Batman recruiting the League for some massive evil that is coming for them, and I rather enjoy that premise. On top of that Batman’s and Wonder Woman’s suits are amazing… Then we spend an entire minute with The Flash and it cuts to the shittiest suits of Flash and Cyborg anyone could ever think up… And then its over… Just over. I know I will probably get flack for this but after the excitement wears of and you re-watch this, its not that good. I expected more from a comic-con trailer, and with Wonder Woman I know DC can deliver it.
