Is Buffy a better superhero than Batman?
I would even hesitate to call Buffy The Vampire Slayer a superhero. Yeah, she has incredible fighting powers and goes up against various monsters and evildoers, but it's really odd to see her name next to superheroes such as Batman, The Flash, Superman, and Captain America.
But according to readers of Redeye, she's a better superhero than The Dark Knight. (Yup, it's another character showdown over at Redeye.)
The showdown is in the sweet sixteen round right now, and Buffy is leading Batman. Other match-ups in this round include Superman vs. Captain America, Wonder Woman vs. The Thing, The Flash vs. Silver Surfer, Spider-Man vs. The Punisher, Iron Man vs. Green Lantern, Wolverine vs. Daredevil, and The Hulk vs. Kitty Pryde.
Buffy is the only TV character left in the competition. In fact, looking at past rounds, I think she was the only TV-centric character (now also in comic book form) in the whole competition.
Even if she somehow beats Batman, I don't see how she'll beat Superman or Spider-Man.
