Yeah, but anybody could kill Batman. It's retarded. Phoenix Jones is Batman...an athletic fighter. He is not super.Mr. Colins: inverted cheeks would mean upside down. I assume this doesn't not translate to limey potato-speak.

You suck dick so hard that your cheeks are practically inverted and your eyes are bulging out like a person let out an airlock in total recall.

I agree superman is way too powerful. But he is one of the originals so i give him a pass. As for batman he is amazing. He has no powers but by using his physical training and intelligence he can become one.

Batman and Superman are the most overrated comic charters in history, unless there IS a character called Overrated Man.Superman: capable of absolutely anything. Well, that should make for decades of redacting.Batman: knows some tae kwon do and has money. Suburban kids are now super heroes.
