Who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman?

Ah, the age old question, Batman vs. Superman. It's plagued comic book fans for years. Heck, they're even making a movie about it. But who will win? Well, if both superheroes were powered by popularity alone, that would put Batman on top. According to YouTube, Batman is the superhero with the most content and the most views on YouTube. Superman doesn't even come second to Batman, and is instead relegated to third place by hammer-wielding god Thor.


YouTube has compiled a list of the top 10 superheroes based on the views each hero has on YouTube as well as the number of hours of video. Batman, Thor and Superman make up the top three, with Iron Man and the Avengers rounding out the top five. The second half of the list is home to Wolverine, Spider Man, Captain America, Justice League, and Deadpool, in that order.

According to YouTube's own data, the top 10 superheroes alone account for more than 10 billion views and 234,000 hours of video on the site. Yikes.

    This may sound incredibly naive but how are Batman and Iron man really super heroes? Don't you need 'super' powers to be a super hero like flying, x ray vision, being very strong or fast etc?

    I'm surprised Thor is so far up that list.

    "Popular Superheroes, According to YouTube"
    -Do you mean, 'According to Google'?

    In this case I don't believe anything Youtube has to say

    I too am surprised that there is no Goku.

    It's just an advertising campaign anyway.

    LOL, Youtube is the top source for copyright violation, where they hide behind a wall and act like Sgt Schultz. All of that illegal third party is going down, it will just take a class action lawsuit to do it. For the Movie and music mafia industry to selectively turn their backs when it's convenient, is the real crime.

    Being as rich as Bruce Wayne, Lex Luthor, or Tony Stark Is a superpower when you use it like they do. But in my opinion, Evil Nyan Cat should have made the list.
