      "Batman is one of America's most well-known and popular super-heroes, but is he the best? Of course, that depends on who you talk to, but in this author's estimation, Batman is something of a relic of a bygone era, and is becoming less and less representative of society and culture in general, while at the same time still retaining some of the mystery and intrigue that made him so very popular in the first place."

    Spiderman (Peter Parker)

    Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider while in high school, the spider bite caused him to develop powers and abilities similar to that of a spider. He was soon able to crawl up walls and sense imminent danger, and eventually even developed his own method of creating webs to swing from. Upon the death of his Uncle Ben due to Peter's indifference, Peter decided that 'With Great Power there must also come Great Responsibility', and thus became Spider-Man.

      "Spiderman is the best super hero by far. He has the most creative superpowers, being able to swing from buildings from his cobwebs and climb massive skyscrapers. "

      "I have been a Superman fan ever since I was a kid. I love that he has many powers as he does and they always seem to be growing. The villains he fights are clearly some of the strongest in the DC Universe, which only draws me to his character more. Superman is definitely my favorite hero and I think he should be everyones. "

      "The Flash is one of the all-time great superheroes from DC comics. He is right just Batman and Superman in terms of popularity right now and is one of my favorite characters to follow in the comics. I was originally introduced to him on his TV show. If you are looking for a lightning fast superhero on the rise, The Flash is right up your alley!"

      "Wonder Woman? I hadn't seen the movie but couldn't imagine how Wonder Woman could even begin to compare to the greats like Batman and Superman. I was pleasantly surprised by the movie but Batman and Superman have no need to worry about their crowns being stolen here."

      "Fans of this series will undoubtedly enjoy this - especially the way in which it crosses over. Also, the ending of this and its implications for the Marvel Universe will shock fans. That being said, to me personally, I was a bit confused by the intricate plotline."

      "Tony Stark aka Iron Man is my favorite superhero. He is human and has a real, but flawed personality. His gadgets and suits are able to keep up with the likes of other superheroes, such as Thor and Captain America. "

      "Poison Ivy is a decent superhero, I guess, but I think the art in this comic looks kind of odd. It looks like they are trying to go for a more realistic look, but I guess I prefer the more traditional comic art. It looks like I am kind of in the minority about this, but I think I like the more over-the-top elements of comic books. I guess this is not a bad comic if you want to read one focusing on this character, but I personally don't think it is the best."

      "I would be very interested in purchasing and reading this comic, because I like that the series is written by a woman and has the attitudes of a woman. There are too many times where a female character is written by a man and they can never get the female perspective right."

      "Batman: Harley and Ivy is one of the better contemporary imaginings of these characters--it feels both fresh and true to their origins at the same time. Timm and Chiodo's illustrations are dynamic and give the comic a sense of being alive. The joke are well-placed and don't serve to dampen the action scenes at all."

      ""Gotham City Sirens Book One," on Amazon is described as "Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn—they’re beautiful, they’re deadly, and for the first time in their lives, all three are trying to fly on the straight and narrow." Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn, although unconventional are considered to be female "supervillians" moreso than "superheroes.""

      "Overall, I am one of those people that loves both DC and Marvel but if I were to choose a side, I would most definitely go with DC comics. Now as an established DC comics fan this is definitely in line with DC comics theme, dark and realistic, which I do love, but I would say there are more better options out there to be best fitted with the title best superheroes."

      "If you have a young person in your life that lives for the Black Panther, Iron Man, Dr. Strange and the rest of the Marvel Universe coterie then this may be a good choice for gifting. All I know is my nephew hugged me round the neck hard when he got this book. And he has never done that before, not for the chem set I got him, not even for the new cell phone I got him for his birthday. Do I want to read it? No. Did I like being hugged so hard I seriously couldn't breathe for about ten seconds? Actually yes. So with that I rest my case."

      "I've been reading this saga since the beginning and by Volume 3 I'm starting to get a bit over it. Although the artwork is holding up well, the pacing is starting to get bad and there's too much time with the plot spinning its wheels because of how it was originally written. I mainly just powered through it because I like the characters and I wanted to see how it ended."
