Why it’s important to BELIEVE that Batman can defeat Superman

I’m pretty sure everyone is now aware of the Batman V Superman : Dawn of Justice movie coming out? If not, you probably either: A) Don’t care, or B) are Marty McFly from 1985 and are too caught up with trying escape and/or punch out Biff to care about the internet.

Regardless, some of you who have seen the trailer and don’t understand why Batman is fighting Superman, let alone understand how it’s even possible that SUPERMAN could be defeated by a regular human, there are many reasons which I’m sure the movie will cover, but I’m not here to argue or discuss that. All I want to talk about is why we SHOULD BELIEVE that it’s POSSIBLE for Batman to beat Superman, regardless of the fact that he HAS beaten him in many scenarios in the DC Comics universe.

I’ve read a few posts from comic-book nerds/friends and even Joe Rogan who think it’s stupid and shouldn’t even be a question because Supermans powers would trump Batmans strength on any head to head fight. And that is correct. They would totally end ol’ Brucey. But without sounding redundant and rehashing every superhero fans knowledge of their morals and why they wouldn’t kill each other and such, let’s talk about about what Superman represents.

Clark Kent’s main goal is to blend in with Humans and be a symbol for their saviour. A Super Jesus, perhaps. People even call him a God (I’m sure that’ll be addressed in the new movie) because he’s an Alien, born with these abilities in another galaxy and didn’t really have to work to get it. His moral compass is based on the man-made laws, almost acting like a Government authority. And that’s what he represents. Absolute Authority. I don’t really have to say that Absolute power corrupts, Absolutely, but I just did… and Batman knows this. It’s just unfortunate that most of the time Superman decides to play by the Law so society doesn’t hate him. Because the law is always right, right? I mean I know that Superman doesn’t go busting weed-smokers, but the fact that he seems to represent the law so strictly, I’m sure that he would let the “justice system” prevail. Maybe? Maybe not, but those have generally been his fundamentals.

Batman represents the struggle of humans. Yes, unlike 99% of us, he has been blessed with seemingly endless financial resources. But instead of being entitled with it, he’s worked hard to hone his skills, used his talents in science, martial arts, and technology and all his gifts in the best way possible to fight back against those who have turned on the innocent. Which, as history tells us, are those with Absolute Authority. Arguably the Government and Police and those who tend to abuse their power.

So, does Superman abuse his power (barring exposure to Red Kryptonite)? Not really, but he has the capability to, and Batman is untrusting of those with Absolute Power. Just like WE should be in our world.

And still, we should have faith that we, as humans, should be able to overcome that power, even when we feel helpless against it. We should be able to use our skills and talents and knowledge that we worked HARD to achieve to accomplish good things, and then like Batman and Superman *SPOILER* (Lol! In case it wasn’t obvious) eventually find a balance and learn to work together.

But should Governments and Police feel like invincible Supermen, ever? Fuck no. They’re humans just like us that have decided to do a JOB that aren’t immune to morality. Does Superman think he’s immune to morality? No, but he represents a system that does in the real world. And he’s decided to be “disguised” as a human – Clark Kent doing his JOB as Superman.

Before I finish and you start arguing about the details of Superman’s principles, this is simply all a metaphor for “Mankind vs. Absolute Authority”. Batman v. Superman. Chaos vs Order. There needs to be a balance of both where sometimes Chaos wins and sometimes Order wins.

We have to BELIEVE that it’s possible.

But to flat out say “Superman would ALWAYS destroy Batman because of all his powers and they never should fight”.

‘Fuck outa here, Joe Rogan.
