Batman and ironman - a comparison
"Because Batman's appearance was way earlier than Ironman and due to Batman's success Marvel decided to make their own version of Batman."
Batman was created before Ironman, and that Ironman was created as a result of Batman's success.
"Both are rich by legacy."
Both Batman and Ironman are wealthy because of their family's legacy. This is true for both characters, as both Batman and Ironman inherited their wealth from their parents.
"They use technology as their powers."
Batman and Ironman rely on technological gadgets to give them an edge in combat, rather than relying on superpowers.
"The parents of both of the superheroes were murdered."
Both Batman and Ironman are motivated by the death of their parents. This is a key element of their character, and something that sets them apart from other superheroes. Both Batman and Ironman use their wealth and resources to fight crime, and both are driven by a personal desire to avenge their parents' deaths.
"If you read comics Jarvis was actually a real man who was Ironman's butler like Batman's Alfred."
In the comics, Jarvis, the man who was Ironman's butler, is actually based on Alfred, Batman's butler. This is interesting because it shows how Marvel has copied elements from DC in order to create their own version of Batman (Ironman).
Iron man vs. batman: who's the better superhero?
"Iron Man's most salient quality is his belief in a bright future that is achievable through the intelligence of man. Batman believes, instead, in a never ending war against entropy and evil that can never be won but must always be fought nonetheless."
Iron Man believes in using intelligence to make a bright future, while Batman believes that evil can never be defeated and must always be fought against.
"Iron Man is an optimist. Batman is a pessimist."
This quote accurately describes the two characters' different outlooks on life. Iron Man believes that through intelligence and hard work, anything is possible. Batman, on the other hand, is a realist who believes that there is always evil in the world that must be fought, even if it can never be completely defeated.
"Iron Man has faith in his own ability to solve problems on the fly. Batman believes in meticulous preparation for every eventuality."
This quote highlights one of the key differences between Iron Man and Batman: Iron Man is confident in his own ability to handle whatever comes his way, while Batman is always meticulously prepared for any possibility. This difference in approach is reflective of their overall outlooks on life: Iron Man is an optimist who believes in the power of intelligence and technology to solve problems, while Batman is a pessimist who believes that evil can never be fully defeated, only fought against.
How iron man and batman differ in their beliefs
"Iron Man's most salient quality is his belief in a bright future that is achievable through the intelligence of man."
Iron Man's defining characteristic is his hope for the future. He believes that humanity is capable of great things and that we can use our intelligence to achieve them. This contrasts with Batman's more cynical view of the world, which sees endless war and evil as something that can never be fully defeated.
"Batman believes, instead, in a never ending war against entropy and evil that can never be won but must always be fought nonetheless."
Batman does not believe that it is possible to completely eliminate evil from the world. Instead, he believes that the fight against evil must be continual, even though it can never be won. This makes sense in light of Batman's origin story, in which his parents were killed by a criminal. Since that event, Batman has dedicated his life to fighting crime, even though he knows that it is an impossible task.
How batman and iron man approach fighting crime
"Batman began by improving himself, and then used technology to deal with bad guy technology, multiple foes, and super powered foes."
This means that Batman first worked on improving himself, for example by becoming physically stronger and more agile, and then he started using technology to help him take on bad guys who also had technology, or who were multiple foes, or who had superpowers.
"In many of his stories he doesn't use much more than a batarang."
Batman is usually able to defeat his enemies using only a batarang, and doesn't need to rely on technology or other gadgets.
"On the other hand, Stark is all about the tech. You know that he's got an automated toilet that washes and dries his hiney for him. Without his tech, he's not very effective."
Tony Stark is very reliant on his technology and without it, he would not be able to be as effective in fighting crime.
The importance of technology to iron man
"Without his tech, he's not very effective."
Iron Man is not a very effective fighter without his technology.
"If he got killed and had to fight his way back from the stone age, he'd have failed back in the stone age."
If Iron Man were to lose all of his technology and be forced to fight using only primitive weapons, he would not be successful. This is because he is not a particularly skilled fighter, and his fighting style relies heavily on technology.
"Batman is an investigator and problem solver using physical skill and physically employed low to medium tech equipment primarily while Iron Man relies on a high tech suit of armor."
Batman uses his physical skills and low to medium tech equipment to solve problems, while Iron Man relies on his high tech suit of armor.
"While both are wealthy (by inheritance) Batman uses this as an act while Iron Man still really lives the life style."
Both Batman and Iron Man are wealthy, Batman uses his wealth as part of his act while Iron Man actually lives a wealthy lifestyle.
The cold war origins of iron man
"Iron Man was initially conceived to be a vehicle to examine Cold War themes, with American businesses and technology being the possible tools in this effort."
Iron Man was created to be a way to explore the idea of the Cold War, and how American businesses and technology could be used in that effort.
"Modern day Iron man fights against Terrorism and Corporate Corruption."
Iron Man is often portrayed as fighting against villains that represent real-world threats. This could be interpreted to mean that the character is more relevant to modern audiences than Batman, who is often fighting against more traditional comic book villains.
"The character of a billionaire playboy industrialist leads to a lot of interesting stories which do not involve their costumes."
There are many interesting stories to be told about a billionaire playboy industrialist, without involving their costumes. This is likely due to the fact that there are many aspects to their lives which are not related to their superhero persona. For example, they may have to deal with business deals gone wrong, personal relationships, or other challenges which do not require them to put on a costume.
Batman's fight against home-grown villains
"Batman fights against home-grown villains, usually those that want to destroy or pervert the Rule of Law."
Batman's typical opponents are those who wish to undermine the law and order that Batman represents. Batman's foes are often criminals or other individuals who pose a threat to the stability of Gotham City.
"He is tied to the police department of a single city and fights crime through intellect and detective work, while using fear, intimidation and (some) technology as his tools."
The quote emphasizes that Batman is more than just a superhero; he's also a master detective. He uses his intellect, detective work, and fear to fight crime in Gotham City. Batman is also tied to the Gotham City police department, which helps him fight crime more effectively.
"In the Avengers, he is a heavy-hitter and part of any assault."
Iron Man is one of the most powerful members of the Avengers, and is often at the forefront of any attack. He is able to dish out a large amount of damage, and is often able to take on multiple opponents at once, even extra terrestrial or godlike ones.
