I actually agree with you on all these points. I just get tired of people constantly saying that Superman is boring and Batman is epic and seeing art and the like depicting Batman beating up Superman. And I’m a guy who loves Batman and his stories. But Superman is different because there’s a definite Judeo-Christian allegory that’s happening in the mythology of Superman. And the fact that he emulates strength through self-control and restraint is one of his endearing qualities. Superman can be interesting and exciting if the writer takes the right approach. Imagine the internal struggles that could be fleshed out of a guy who is virtually invulnerable, yet would have difficulty relating to anyone on planet Earth.

All kinds of superhero’s can be pitted against one another, but when it comes to Batman vs Superman themes, it’s different.....because with one character possessing god-like powers and the other character being a mortal man, my suspension of disbelief only goes so far.

Same. I love DC but their continual need to portray their heroes, especially Batman and Superman against each other is so tiring.

Marvel has Civil War of course but for the most part their hero vs hero stuff feels more isolated and certainly isn't continually a thing like Batman v Superman.

It’d be cool if they took the “vs” series into new territory:

Catwoman vs Harley Quinn
Scarecrow vs Joker
Supergirl vs Silver Banshee
Batgirl vs Batwoman
Superman vs Zod

I’m sure there are other cool matchups and I haven’t even listed Marvel.

I get what you're saying but I think some of us find it boring because it's not a new or novel concept now. TKDR was decades ago and Batman has been depicted as beating up or handling Superman so many times now. We had a live action movie of him doing it.

I dunno, it's just funny to me that so many people who dislike Superman will say that he's "OP" and yet they'll be massive fans of Batman - the character with possibly the most insane plot armor or ability to win in the history of fiction.

Love both characters but it's a bit tiring seeing how one-sided the depictions can be.

Anyway, cool piece in terms of accurately depecting a scene. Props to Prime 1.

Since the product is still in the development stage, the Size (up to 10%) & Weight (up to 10kg) may be changed during the production stage.

Quoted from P1. Interesting

Damn this ----s expensive. Too expensive to keep for sure

But bet you you can double your money once sold out

Could be a good investment if you want to just sit on it if you have the room for extra couch in your house

I pretty much have been sticking to collecting berserk statues... but this I have to have it this is basically the perfect depiction of that classic scene. Too bad they didn't make guts vs zodd with this level of care
