DC Comics has a huge line-up of superpowered heroes. The Justice League is a team that has battled against a plethora of supervillains and made them eat dust. They have been one of the strongest superhero teams in comic books, with people who have god-like abilities in the team. And such a powerful team that faces some harrowing challenges every day, needs a good leader. And it does have one, Superman.
But there is another candidate on the DC team who could challenge the superhero from Krypton to become a better leader. And that is none other than the genius Bruce Wayne or Batman. He is a man of great power and skill. DC Comics fans often argue and wonder over the possibility that what if Batman was the leader of The Justice League. Though there is no end to arguments like these here are some points as two how out of the two could be a better leader.
Superman, the compassionate and invincible leader of The Justice League
One of the strongest superheroes to ever exist, Superman undoubtedly is the best choice to be the leader. He is fast, super strong, can fly, and is really the Man of Steel. He is also considered the symbol of hope, truth, and justice. The superhero was the last survivor of the planet Krypton and was raised in Smallville, Kansas. He was created by Jerry Seigel and Joe Shuster and first appeared in the comic book Action Comics #1. Before Krypton was destroyed, he was sent to Earth where Jonathan and Martha Kent raised him. His adopting parents guided him to use his god-like superpowers for the benefit of others.
Superman is everything an ideal superhero could be. He is strong beyond imagination, just and even wears an outlandish costume. He is smart and does not let personal issues cloud his judgment. Plus he has beaten much stronger enemies. Also, he is tenacious and never leaves his team behind in a fight. Superman has every quality a superhero and a leader should have.
Batman, a leader who is driven by logic and intelligence
Bruce Wayne, with his superhero name Batman, is one of the most loved superheroes of DC Comics. And that is is because he is human, unlike Superman – who is almost God. Batman was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. He is a wealthy man, living in Gotham City. He owns a business, is a philanthropist, and is also a superhero. Batman uses his genius and tech to aid him in fighting against criminals. Bruce Wayne had witnessed the murder of his parents, Thomas and Martha. And that event made him a vendetta with the ideal of justice.
Even though Batman does not have any superhuman powers, his genius makes him a choice as a leader. And he even runs a company, which says a lot about his leadership quality. He is a master tactician who uses intelligence to beat the strongest of foes. Even took on his teammates if they went bad. Also, he is highly respected by all of the League members. And hence is the ideal choice as a leader if DC wants to replace Superman.
Who is Better – Superman or Batman?
Both Superman and Batman have qualities that could make each of them a great leader of the super team. But when it comes to actually lead the team, DC should stick to Superman. Though this is not the end statement and people might have different opinions. But Superman has been doing the job for ages and has what it takes to be a true leader. Running a company is different from leading a superhero team. He is the greatest hero of the DC universe and should be the leader. And he has proved it time and time again. Though he has his weaknesses, his spirit to do the right thing makes him an ideal leader. And even Batman would agree he can never take Superman’s place.
