Why Spiderman is better than Batman
In my opinion, Spiderman is the best comic book hero ever, and significantly superior to Batman. He is the most popular and most commercially successful superhero, according to a poll by Empire magazine in May 2011. I grew up loving Spiderman! He was the superhero that I most related to. I would watch avidly of his exploits and victories, his life as a reluctant super hero and his emotional turmoil in his non-Spidery times.
