Newswire: Superman Stan Lee picks the Man of Steel in Batman V Superman
Stan Lee is no fool. He worked his way up from the figurative mailroom to become the president and chairman of Marvel Comics. And according to Complex, DC Comics-superfan Lee is saying that only a fool would bet against Superman in a tussle against the caped crusader.
At first, Lee was hesitant to predict the winner of rival comics company DC’s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice scowl-off, claiming loyalties to both Batman creator Bob Kirby and Jerry Siegel, creator of Superman. But when pressed, Lee came clean on his pick.
“If this is real—a fight between Batman and Superman—there’s no one who should bet on Batman,” Lee confessed, acknowledge the real-world disparity between two made-up characters. And why would Lee pick the man of steel over the world’s greatest detective? “He’s indestructible and can do anything. Batman relies on weapons.”
