My favorite superhero is Spider-man. He is my favorite because he has webs, and he is athletic, and he jumps around, and his mask looks cool.

I think I prefer Superman, mainly because of his ideals. He fights for freedom, justice, and the American way, and who can say no to that? What with flying, super-strength, invulnerability, and x-ray eyes, he's got all the super powers. Plus, just look at that rugged chin.

Batman!

Because he's not a superhero. He's just very smart.

And because he doesn't hesitate to beat the crap out of people who deserve it (at least in Frank Miller's stories).

And because he likes cool toys.

And because he has suffered and been damaged, and found a way to channel that damage into something worthwhile. :batman:

I like Batman too. He is all dark and mysterious.

Rorschach (as Dr Manhattan one of the Watchmen's heroes), a kind of psycho and violent vigilante. I specially like his cold and black humour.

I like Jesus as my favourite superhero. He is #1 because he died on the cross to save us from sin. Now all we have to do is ask him for forgiveness and we can be with him in heaven when we die.
I also like Spider-Man, Captain America, Batman, Iron Fist, Cyclopse, and Jean Grey. Here is a list of my favourite in order.

Batman is my favourite. There are many reasons, but here is the most important one:

Batman refuses to compromise on his ideals. He is not a utilitarian, he believes in categorical ethics. For example, he categorically refuses to kill anyone. He wouldn't kill anyone even if killing them was the only way to save a million people. This shows that he understands the danger of a superhero becoming a utilitarian. He sees himself as a potential threat, not as a noble hero, and is constantly doubting his own motives. He even seriously considers the possibility that he may just be an crazy person acting out a revenge fantasy. He is a moral grown-up. Compare this to goody-two-shoes Superman, who has insanely dangerous amounts of power and yet doesn't ever seem to second-guess himself.

Batman's categorical ethics are sometimes made fun of, and the mockers often use a tone that is eerily similar to the tone that Americans use to defend their country's policy of torture. Compare:

Quote:
Why doesn't Batman just kill the Joker while he has the chance? If he doesn't, the Joker will just escape and go on to kill hundreds more people!


and

Quote:
But what if there is a ticking time-bomb scenario, like on that TV show? Shouldn't we torture a terrorist to save hundreds of lives?


Here is one of my favourite scenes ever, that shows why Batman's bizarrely strict ethics are actually a great strength. In this scene, Batman is the only member of the Justice League who can handle an extremely dangerous telepath. Why? Because the telepath wouldn't allow any other member to get near her, because she can read their minds and knows that they would kill her if the situation called for it. But she lets Batman get close, since when she reads his mind, she discovers that he will not kill her, no matter what. Batman isn't bluffing. He really would rather let her kill thousands of people than allow himself to kill her. And paradoxically, this is precisely what allows him to prevent her from killing thousands of people.
