Good Morning Geekery #1

Welcome to the first edition of Good Morning Geekery!

Every Monday and Friday morning @ 9am we’ll be posting geeky and nerdy questions and want to get your opinions. They  could be from comics, gaming, my first year biology textbook, or any other area of geek and nerd culture.

After all, what’s more fun than a Never Ending Raging Debate?!

Good Morning Geekery #1

Our first question comes from DC and Marvel.  Each universe has a character that relies on really cool tech.

Batman for DC

Iron Man for Marvel

Question: Who’s the better superhero?

  1. I’ll get the ball rolling.

    I have to say Iron Man. Besides the fact that I’m totally biased when it comes to Iron Man, I love that he’s a tech genius and is continually upgrading his suit. He, unlike Batman, also doesn’t have a ‘secret life’.

    1. Are we basing our decision on comic books or movies or everything? Because if it’s books, Batman, because I haven’t read any Iron Man. If it’s everything…still Batman. Because he’s Batman.

      1. Everything. I knew you’d choose Batman cause you’re as biased with him as I am with Iron Man =P.

        Another point in Iron Man’s favour is that Bruce Wayne lacks the pizzaz that self-absorbed Tony Stark has.

  2. I like both of them … but if Iron Man’s “battery” dies he dies too. Batman can survive his tech running out of power.

      1. Hope he finds a plane he can get a charge from when he is plummeting to Earth 😛

      2. Or, a lucky lightning strike 🙂

  3. If we’re counting everything, then I say Scott Snyder’s/Franco Francavilla’s run on Detective Comics beats everything. EVERYTHING.

    1. I will focus on the word HERO. Batman qualifies because of his moral values. Iron Man? He’s not the altruist type, not all the time anyway. Many of the fights he picked were because he believed his opponent had stolen his technology. Not because they were a danger to the world. I would say his interests were not always towards people’s well-being, but towards his own self. Not to mention he’s been pictured as a drunk for quite a while. Sorry, Iron Man, in my point of view, is no hero.

      1. But he would try to drink anyone of us under the table 😉

  4. Bruce Wayne squanders his wealth building toys for Batman.
    Tony Stark strives to give the world free energy.

    Batman beats up local thugs without addressing the situation that breeds them.
    Iron Man disarms warlords so they can’t hurt innocent people.

    Just saying 🙂
