Today we are talking about two of the Big Three of comic book superheroes – Batman and Spiderman. On the black side is the savior of Gotham and on the red side the vigilante of New York. If you talk about the popularity of these two, nobody is less than the other. But here we are talking about a match of strength. We want to know who will survive in a mano-a-mano battle. Even though these characters lie with entirely different franchises and as such there is no probable chance of them ever facing each other in a clash to death; it is our duty as fans to think of scenarios which interest us. So here we are. If you want to know who would win in a match between these two legendary warriors, read on.
The Dark Knight, World’s Greatest Detective, the master schemer, and much more. Batman is not just a character. It is a symbol of hope, redemption, revival, and perseverance for a lot of kids as well as adults around the globe. Personally, when I would read Batman’s comics in my childhood, I would get this sense of purpose, a sense of belonging. That in this world of whiners and false laughter I -a silent introvert- has got a shot. Not only in comics or movies but in life too, Batman serves as a reminder that there is both dark and light inside us. It is our choice which one we allow to nourish and which one we use in our quest for survival.
People might say Ben Affleck doesn’t do justice to the character of Batman. In reality, no one actor can display the diverse qualities that Batman possesses at the same time. Whether it be Val Kilmer or Michael Keaton, they end up portraying only a part of his personality. Christian Bale aptly portrayed the never-say-die attitude and the raw genius that the character of Barman possesses. Ben Affleck, on the other hand, personifies the brooding part that exists within him; the dark side which came after the death of Bruce’s parents and never really left. Ben Affleck’s version also shows how ruthless and merciless Batman can be when he wants to achieve something. In his endless trial to achieve harmony and control over his environment, Batman prepares without any halt for anything that could and hence would go wrong.
