Batman is a comic book character who first appeared in the DC Comics comic books in the 1940s, created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. Iron Man was created by Marvel Comics and made his first appearance in 1963’s edition ‘Tales of Suspense’.
Both characters have had millions of fans over the years but there are people who claim that Tony Stark is actually the better superhero. Their reasons include Tony Stark being a genial engineer and expert tactician thus being smarter than Batman, although the latter is a forensic scientist and strategist himself. Fans also claim that Tony Stark would be the one to win in a hypothetical fight between the two as he has the ability to access the Iron Man’s powers without even fully putting the suit on.
Probably the most important reason why Iron Man is preferred by fans is the fact that he is more relatable than Batman. As Batman is a superhero as well as a billionaire, he is not someone most people can actually relate to. On the other hand, Iron Man is more like a regular person considering his issues with alcocholism.
