MetaFilter comment of the day week month year: The Trouble With Superman

My favorite thing is Justice League interactions where Batman is being all growly and gloomy and Superman is all "I LIKE MILK" and, you know, Parks and Rec, but fighting robots and aliens and natural disasters.

btw, I said this completely off the cuff, but now I'm thinking about it and it is totally true– Batman:Superman::Ron Swanson:Leslie Knope. They disagree fundamentally about almost everything, but by gum they are going to work together to make the world a better place.

-Batman just wants to be left alone, has vast hoards of gold (wealth)

-Batman is constantly nauseated by Superman's love of teamwork, but goes along with it because it isn't worth the effort to get out of it (only to do whatever he was going to do anyway, regardless of the plan)

-Superman would 100% give Batman a present that allowed him to slam his doors shut

-Superman often has to save Batman from his scary exes
