Batman v/s Iron Man

Postby Rainswept on Thu May 22, 2008 10:01 am

Two very wealthy geniuses without superpowers become superheroes after traumatic events in their life. The question is.... Who would win in a fight?
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I have no desire or intention to argue the details of their combative powers.

I just would side with Iron Man because he's not so goddamn emo.

And he's a scientist.

And amusing.


Throughout the movie however, I couldn't help but be reminded of Venture Bros. I was hoping Brock Samson would show up and kill everyone. Now that's a movie they should make.
If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere committing evil deeds, an it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

Nope. I sure didn't. Speaking only on what little I've seen.

Needless to say tho, Brock Samson would whoop both their asses. Super suits, crazy gadgets or none.

I remember when Cookie Monster only ate cookies. Now he's a health nut who only eats cookies occasionally.

PC destroys another piece of my childhood.

I mean really, if I were looking to him as an object lesson, I think that if eating cookies makes you fat and covered in blue hair, that's deterrent enough, no?

High five!

And who else has an awesome heavy metal song named after them?

That's right! IRON MAN.

And Iron Man has booster rockets. Batman has wings.

A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.

And don't forget that Iron Man has missiles that come out of his damn arms.

What does Batman have again? Oh, right. A boomerang.
