Explain why you don't read Batman?
too small scale, I just don't find him interesting at all, only thing I remotely like about him is his interaction with other heroes, especially when he gets put in his place.

To small scaled? Ya kidding me right?

Dude......

Homie...... I know writers are always in favor of batman. I get that. I know the fans are always behind of him too. Batman fanboys are worse than lebron stans or the based god's choir. I know. But stop it. Stop. It.

How can you just be so openly against batman? What the fu*k is that about? I grew up a superman fan. When I was a kid I wanted to fly, not swing and lurk. Frank Miller made batman something different. We see it now in the modern interpretations of batman. Even Keaton was the brooding bruce wayne. Dude...Batman stay brooding. Dude is tragic. What is small scale about that?

He's just flesh and blood. I know this is drawn out in comics. Batman coined that sh*t tho. Not including the various pulp charactars of the golden age, batman is the longest standing human in terms of both main universes. To put in simpsons talk...if you are a human in a comic book world trying to beat the odds....chances are Batman did it first.

I could go on and on and on and on about this. But I think Batman's accomplishments(not being too writer biased in all examples) speak for themselves. Sure, superman SHOULD be able to crush batman in an instant. If written properly tho, batman does some mean sh*t. Tower of babel, Knightfall, Issues 1-24 of Batman/Superman, JLA(morrison/waid runs), Snyder's works(even his work with d!ck as well)....it goes on and one.

Dude...Batman is the only person I know of that affected the image universe in a crossover book that stuck around for a minute.

small scale??????? I dont see how. He's as powerful as superman in his costume and as powerful as lex luthor in his business attire.

I am far from a batman jockrider....but I just couldnt let that statement slide. Its kinda like saying Reed Richards isnt THAT smart.

I'm sorry....I wrote my response after only reading your first words being too small scale. In my haste I retorted a response without fully processing the rest of your obviously influenced rant.

You just dont like batman dude. You mad. Dont hide behind the excuse of ''too small scale''. At some point early in your comic book reading era.....Batman sonned one(or maybe several) of your favorites. Its okay, he does that to everyone.

As for....when he gets put in his place....do tell me how often these incidents occur? I only know of a small handful worth mentioning....prometheus......maybe cassandra/david cain.....once in france in a no man's land sidestory.....hmm.....the court humbled him but if u even read any of the issues you would see that no matter what you throw at him....bruce wayne is a boss.

Jack Baur is the only person I can think of that could stand a chance(street level). Not even James Bond. Maybe Daniel Craig cannon. Jason Bourne, yea. But theoretically.....none of these dudes stand a chance. Thats the main problem I had with the movies. It made you think that people actually stood a chance hand to hand against batman. Very few HUMANS should be able to lay a hand on him in combat.

Truroux, the moment you read the first 3 words of his post you should have just laughed him off. the dude obviously knows nothing about batman. admittedly, Im not the biggest DC or batman fan but even I know what dude said was utter sh*t. and all you kinda did, even though what you wrote out was true, was waste your time. you cant rationalize with an irrational person.

BOY! And now with him learning how to handle each of the rings is crazy!
so does this make Kyle Raynor the strongest being in the DC universe??? i checked out the war of the green lanterns a lil while back and that joint was meeeean, when Guy Gardner had the green and red rings at the same damn time

I would probably have to say so. War of the Green Lanterns was INSANE though, especially when John channeled that damn Black Lantern power!

But yeah, with each power ring being as powerful as it is, and now Kyle mastering EVERY one of them...he's definitely the most powerful being in the DC Universe, especially if he gets the chance to master both the Black Lantern ring and the White Lantern ring. If he can use all of those with the rest of the spectrum's.....no one in the entire DC Universe would be able to stand a chance against him.

Writers and artists make heroes who they are. Batman is being written by the best in the business right now. I suggest you read it. Funny you say that, because Batman is being put in his place right now. Issue #15 is a must buy.

Issue #15 is legit. Must buy. The art is fu*king flawless. I can't imagine any other hero being in Batman's shoes right now.

I read this thread last night and read 1-14. Picked up 15 this morning and about to read now... Also picked up the #1 Swamp Thing... Guy in the shop recomended Animal Man, never heard of him though.

Wonder Woman is easily book of the year IMO. A very welcome surprise, especially after the fanbase bi*ched on how this volume is far more dark and horror-themed than previous Wonder Woman stories/relaunches.

that's the thing , I like heroes with powers batman is boring to me even when I was little watching the superfriends I never really cared for him. If I'm doing street level it has to be mystic or a least spiderman level. I know all about batman , I read the comics growing up saw most of the movies and I just don't care for him. I swear to god batman and X-men fans are the worst you can't say you don't like batgod or mutants without them getting all but hurt.

thanks to this thread i've read my 1st comics in like 15 years
i downloaded all of what seems to be the latest UNCANNY X-FORCE with wolverine, deadpool, psylocke etc... as well as the 1st 4 installments of ALL NEW X-MEN where beast brings the original x-men from the past who go out to confront cyclops & magneto who are on their own revolution sh*t right now.

of the 2 so far i prefer the ALL NEW X-MEN

somebody fill me in on what's the latest with my n*gga CABLE? as a kid he was 1 of my favourites... which comic can i find him in that recent? does he have his own thing or is he a part of some team?

also is there another up to date x-men out there besides ALL NEW X-MEN?
started reading again & getting hooked

the end of avengers vs x-men is a huge letdown, bro. dont get too hyped.

x-men legacy and astonishing x-men are some other x-books you might want to check for. theres also another but even the title of it would kind of spoil one of the books you just downloaded.

There is cable and x-force. The first 2 issues came out this month.
The uncanny x-force you got just ended, but a new series comes out in January. I think storm will be a part of the team and wolverine wont.
Then there is uncanny x-men which comes out February which features cyclops and magneto's story from all new x-men.
