Batman vs Superman?

I've had this discussion with a lot of people.

Who is better? Batman or Superman? Who would kick ultimate butt in a stand-off?

In my opinion, it's Batman. All the way.

Before we go into this, though, I have to say that they're both super heroes and they both rock. It's just ... if I could only choose one, I'd go for Batman, for sure.

Now, first of all, Batman goes off pure skill. He has no super-human powers. Superman is awesome, don't get me wrong, but what if he had no superpowers? What if they were taken away? Would he have martial arts skills, sweet gadgets? What would he do?

Batman has the Batmobile. I mean, really, what is cooler than that? Sure Superman can fly but does he fly in style? Nope.

The outfit. Red, blue, yellow versus ...... black. Black makes for a way cooler outfit and gives Batman that mysterious edge. What's with the red undies, anyway? Plus he has an awesome helmet/mask that covers most of his face. How can Lois Lane not know that Clark Kent is Superman?

Speaking of Clark Kent, he's a shy, clumsy reporter (not that there's anything wrong with that!). But Bruce Wayne ... he's a badass millionaire. He's also very mysterious which is, not gonna lie, pretty sexy.

Last but not least, Batman is just a human being. He could be me or you. The idea is actually plausible and I think that's what makes it so attractive. Superman, while not plausible, is awesome and fantastic in his own right. Who wouldn't love to have superpowers and be able to fly? I would.

And really, I wouldn't want to think of Batman or Superman in a fight against one another. They're superheroes for crying out loud. They don't fight each other, they fight evil. But who would win if the world turned upside down and inside out? It would probably be very close. All Batman would have to do, though, is research Superman, find out Kryptonite is his own Achille's heel and the fight would be over. He certainly has the resources to get it.

I could be wrong, though.

What do you think?

Incubus is my utopia.
I love Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Ghostbusters.
I like science fiction. And comics. Oh, and video games, too.
I think Lady Gaga rocks. I don't care how weird she is.
My best friend in the whole world is Lisa and I love her like my own sister.
I collect ticket stubs. I even go so far as to write who I go with on the back.
I have a book obsession.

I buy too many earrings.

Fall is my favorite season but summer is the most fun.
I drive a Honda.
I'm scared of dogs, spiders and infertility.
I love tea, teapots and teacups.
Someday, when I'm old, I want to own too many cats, have a big, beautiful garden and wear fuzzy sweaters in the summer.

Blah, blah, blog

I am going crazy with all this snow. Seriously. There's just way too much of it. And it's sad to say that we consider temperatures in the 20s and 30s to be a heatwave! Really? Yeah, really.
One of my co-workers was saying none of the past storms this winter will be anything compared to the one we're going to get on Jan. 20. What? Has anyone else heard this? It's freaking me out a bit because I don't think I can handle anymore snow. I may just have to run away.
I mean, when city roads resemble country roads ... something is wrong. I haven't seen the cement on my boyfriend's neighborhood streets for months! When there's just too much snow and the city packs it in the middle of one-way streets, there's definitely something wrong. There's just no where to put it. There's no where to turn. It's ... just ... everywhere.
When spring finally gets here, I will never have been so ready for it in all of my 25 years of being in this crazy state. That is, if we really do get a spring and summer this year.

I can honestly say I am completely, 100 percent happy right now. And I have been for the past four months, thanks to a special someone who has filled my life with love, hope, adventure and laughter.
All of this affection - in only four months. When I would hear "love at first sight," I'd scoff. I didn't believe in it. Well, I do now.
It's hard to imagine life before him. Really.
I don't know that I've ever had the privilege of being loved so much that I can feel it from my head all the way down to my toes and everywhere in between. For the first time, I am number one to someone. It's something I've always dreamed about and to finally have it come true is ... well, unbelievable.
The way he looks at me, how his eyes noticeably light up when I walk into the room, how I feel completely invincible to any danger when I'm with him ... it's bliss.
I still think if I were to pinch myself, I'd wake up in bed alone, without his warmth next to me. So I'm very careful to do no pinching.
