"Why Batman Is Better Than Superman"
It's good to know that we have accredited scholars hard at work on supporting banal fanboy opinions.
That article may surprise you. It's really about the argumentative strategies used by Batman fans when they debate the issue with Superman fans. The writer introduces the concept of value theory on the second page, and evaluative comparisons and descriptive comparisons on the third page. The author forces us to think about what makes superheroes great, and concludes that Batman is "better" in one area (courage). All fanboys should abandon their errors in reasoning after reading this essay!
That actually sounds like an interesting book.
