I read this little bit of wisdom from Caged Maiden. It has profound truth to it.
So who are you? A Batman or Superman? Please share your thoughts.He said, "There are two kinds of people in this world, those who love Superman and those who love Batman."
I was like, "Really?"
"Yeah. Think about it, Superman is the guy who does what he does because it's right...(or something like that). Batman is all about revenge."
I stared wide-eyed, having been introduced to a concept I couldn't grasp. "Who in the world thinks Superman is better than Batman? That's just dumb..."
And that was the beginning of the end for the two of us, because it turned out that while I was was completely in love with Batman (and his cars and sarcastic attitude, tortured soul, vengeful ways, and dark image), he loved Superman with his rightness and justice and heroism for the sake of heroism. Even his cryptonite weakness and super powers...
And you know, since that day, I have realized there is quite a lot of truth in what he said. I've never met someone who loves both, it's either one or the other.
