Batman Has daddy issues while Ironman has alchol problems... I now that you mention it they do seem slightly similar.

I get it, but did he break his brain because he can't believe someone just said that or because he never realized it before? I'm not being critical, just a legit question.

Bruce Wayne's nowhere near as intelligent and inventive as Tony Stark. I love them both, though.

hahaha love your logic πŸ˜›

Garrett, I think that was the point... That's why Tom (in the comics) just croaked. πŸ™‚

Yeah, it was pretty much geek overload. There's a follow up comic on Friday to explain his condition!

Yes, they r pretty much alike. But Batman has a much darker inspiration. Tony was smart & easy going till he realized the truth & got inspired by an incident which quickly transforms him into something else, but Batman, he grows up searchin for a path & is more about the fear factor than juz fighting crime. These are atleast the movie versions of the heroes. I like both. But I definitely prefer Batman more, for the depth in the character. Or maybe, Nolan was simply better.. :p But therez one thing u can't deny. Batman has a Joker to face.. :p Nothin beats that.

Broad sweeping generalizations are hilarious. If you look even slightly deeper it becomes apparent Tony Stark became Iron Man, primarily, for his own penance. Bruce Wayne became the Batman to avenge his parents. Not to be a nit picking nerd but it seems to be an over simplification of both characters. Also, it appears as though Tom is trying to raise his middle finger before crashing to the ground. Or am I reading to deep into that?

Stark's an engineering genius, but I wouldn't rule out Wayne in an intelligence contest between the two. In fact a lot of comic nerds... I mean average ordinary citizens consider Batman's "superpower" to be superhuman reasoning and intelligence. And Stark is nowhere near as tough, resilient, or resourceful as The Detective. Put them in an empty room and it would be all over with for Tony Stark. Unless you gave him the resources to create some sort of weapon. Batman's body and mind are his weapon. The Bat-gadgets are just accessories. But then, I'm not the type of person to get on the internet and start debating about the attributes of comic book superheroes. The people who do that tend to be complete losers.

Jesus can't you people just let the joke lie instead of disassembling it? This sounds like a typical broad comment, that's why I try to to befriend/go out with broads only geeks like I πŸ˜€

Ok. That question is grounds for a break-up/divorce. Tom, buddy, you can do so much better than that chick!!!

They're completely different! IronMan is Marvel. Batman is DC Comics. But other than that, yeah, they're the same πŸ™‚
