Who would you vote for?

Comicbook Presidential Elections 2008

Batman

Side Score: 34
VS.

Ironman

Side Score: 51

Iron man is reckless and would not make a good president. Whereas batman has a strong sense of patriotism, has strong moral principles, and understands the economy. He is also very cultural, and clearly the smarter of the two. Moreover, he is very diplomatic and has a small ego, which is important when serving a country and not yourself. Consider these actual Batman quotes:

Dick Grayson: "What's so important about Chopin?"

Bruce Wayne: "All music is important, Dick. It's the universal language. One of our best hopes for the eventual realization of the brotherhood of man."

Batman: "Better put 5 cents in the meter."

Robin: "No policeman's going to give the Batmobile a ticket."

Batman: "This money goes to building better roads. We all must do our part."

Batman: "Human mechanisms are made by human hands, Robin. None of them is infallible. It is a lesson that must be faced."

Batman: "Nobody wants war."

Robin: "Gee, Batman. Belgravia's such a small country. We'd beat them in a few hours."

Batman: "Yes, and then we'd have to support them for years."

Now Ironman quotes:

-

Tony Stark: Well, Ms. Brown. It's an imperfect world, but it's the only one we got. I guarantee you the day weapons are no longer needed to keep the peace, I'll start making bricks and beams for baby hospitals.

Tony Stark: Is it better to be feared or respected? I say, is it too much to ask for both?

See what I mean? Who would you rather answer the phone at 3 am? A brave, compassionate, logical rodent with wings, or a sexist, insolent, fear mongering hunk of metal? I say the choice is in the sky. Batman 08

Does look like a good film, and I don't particularly like batman. What's funny is, I love iron man, but I didn't enjoy the film so much... the action was great but the story line went from cheesy to acceptable... wasn't that amazing... You have to figure in though, that batman has how many films to the one iron man film????

It isn't a matter of who you like. It isn't a popularity contest. It's to pick the leader of the free world!

This is obvious propaganda, and those quotes are out of context. The Tony Stark quotes are all from before his change of heart in the movie, lets face it Stark is much more electable than batman. Batman the strong silent type could never be elected president because he does not have public speaking skills. where as Mr stark can stand behind a podium and with just his quick wit have everyone eating out of his hands

While i am not one to call batman stupid, but against Stark, who created a reactor the size of a small plate in a cave in the desert, his accomplishments are trivial. With Starks intellect there would be no civil matter he couldn't handle. Balance the budget? NO problem. want a end to national deficit? Vote Ironman

If you really want to turn the economy around, if you really want to put an end to war and the defense budget

VOTE IRONMAN A ARMY OF ONE!

Yes, because the ability to build a reactor the size of a small plate will contribute to non-proliferation. Give me a break!

Stark is an megalomaniacal, egotistical, sophist. He is in no way reformed, and your attempts to lobby for him by degrading the great community and social work Batman has done is sour indeed.

"Is it better to be feared or respected? I say, is it too much to ask for both?" Oh come on, that's so much cooler than "This money goes to building better roads..". Ironman FTW. That and I've got over 400 of his comics taking up space in my house (for 20 years), and I finally get to validate hanging onto them..

While Iron man is smart technically, a lot of the decisions he makes are flawed... for example by reviling his identity, he endangered all his close friends.

Batman on the other hand has time and time again shown great reasoning abilities. Aside from some minor flaws, he seems like a harder worker and a more responsible person.

Batman and Iron Man... Well, they are both rich as hell... Batman acts all high class, whereas Iron Man has obvious flaws in character, and seems sleazy, which is cool because every man in his position would be the same way... if they didn't love themselves too much, like batman does.... Fuck vanity, fuck batman, it's all about the iron.

Some of the most well rounded and convincing arguments I've heard. It is all about the iron, fuck batman, fuck him in his bat ears.

Although sleazy does match the profile of any politician, Batman definitely has a better education and upbringing. Iron man is too haphazard and would probably end up passing some giant tax loopholes for his corporate buddies. Batman on the other hand would protect the weak and support and more Democratic party system.

Side: Batman

You hit the nail on the head. I like the Robinhood tack that Batman lives by. I think Batman is a Democrat an Ironman is a Republican.

Tony Stark (Iron Man) was a boy genius that entered MIT @ age 15 to study electrical engineering... I mean, look at that machine he created in a cave!

Bruce Wayne (Batman) was just an engineer who was good at living off of his parents fortune and investigating things.

Iron Man/Stark has no qualms about letting people know his real identity unlike Batman/Wayne. He also is a charasmatic salesman who seems more likely to be able to work out international problems diplomatically, as opposed to Batman punching and kicking shit.

Side: Ironman

Defiantly Iron man because he has no secrets about his identity. Plus Batman would probably make a better dictator because he has said he became Batman so that he could strike FEAR into people. Also i just like MARVEL better than DC

Are we talking Batman/Ironman or Bruce Wayne/Tony Stark?

Bruce Wayne any day of the week, but Batman? Batman's a vengeful angry vigilante who operates outside of the law to get what he wants done.

If it's between Batman and Ironman, I have to go with Ironman - he's less crazy.

If we had followed Batmans philosophy we would never have invaded Iraq:

Batman: "Nobody wants war."

Robin: "Gee, Batman. Belgravia's such a small country. We'd beat them in a few hours."

Batman: "Yes, and then we'd have to support them for years."

Batman is only a vigilantly because he knows Washington is corrupt and can't be trusted to stop crime. He is a very noble guy.

He's smarter, more qualified, and more concerned with the collective good of the people.

Iron Man. Hands down. He's no thief in the night - he's in your face with his justice. No sneaking around like a criminal.

Iron Man has a sense of humor. And (frequently) a public identity, no matter how controversial.

Batman likes to be all grim and scare the crap out of people. And most people don't know who he really is, so they have no reason to think he's not a little bit crazy.

I don't think Batman would get too many votes.

Tony Stark is suave and intelligent and he is a genius with technology.
