50 Reasons Why BATMAN Is The Greatest Superhero Ever
For those of you who agree with our point blank assertion, we present you with fifty of the many reasons why Batman clearly pops a grapple in the competition.
Weve all got an early memory of the Dark Knight lodged in our mind somewhere, whether its from a stack of a father or siblings old comic books, watching re-runs of the purposely gaudy 60s T.V show or from one of the many movie adaptations or animated series available for audience consumption. Hes a character thats so embedded into our collective subconscious that these days it's difficult to get through a week without hearing about his exploits in some form or another (although Im not sure exactly why youd want to). Yes, its a good time to be a Batman fan; a great time in fact. Rocksteadys phenomenal new open world brawler Arkham City is currently lighting up the gaming world, making it possible to actually feel like the Dark Knight himself. And love it or hate it, theres no denying that Christopher Nolans modern re-imagining of the iconic Caped Crusader has captured the attention of the entire world. The Dark Knights current lifetime gross is reportedly over a billion dollars and the franchise's third instalment, The Dark Knight Rises, which is due for release in summer 2012, is looking poised to destroy the box office all over again. Theres little doubt that Batman is one of, if not the most commercially successful comic book character in history, with over 20 monthly affiliated publications, a booming movie and T.V brand and enough merchandise on the market to give George Lucas a semi-on. Obviously commercial success doesnt always guarantee quality, but we at WhatCulture believe that with the Caped Crusader, it totally does. And theres never been a better time for us to make the case that Batman might well be the greatest superhero in existence.
