Iron Man versus Batman: Contradictory premises?
MamaPop just dished out this post pitting two of the biggest superheroes in the movies this year – Iron Man versus Batman. Quite the sacrilege if you ask me. Well, mostly it’s because of the movies. Iron Man is the best superhero movie so far. The Dark Knight (Batman) is an epic crime drama that happened to feature a guy in a cape.
But the two (as characters) taken side by side do not really feature much difference. Billionaire playboys, with lotsa money, lotsa toys, and swanky butlers. There were some other takes online pitting one against the other but come on, they come from two different mythos. Sure they have some dead-on similarities but we could still highlight key differences here. Phenomena on Break had an interesting take on this too.
And MamaPop’s take is a bit flawed I guess since they’re based mostly on the movies. Tony Stark had Jarvis as a butler. There’s no point comparing Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) with Alfred (Michael Caine). Hot-blooded men would definitely choose Pepper any day. Well, they ended up with Iron Man sweeping all points.
Oh and remember this YouTube clip?
