My Favorite Superhero

My favorite superhero is Batman by far. I have been watching Batman since the time I was in a walker but now that I am getting more and more into the comic community I am starting to get over-whelmed with these possibilites. I am still quite new to all this comic stuff but why is it there are so many bad ass superheroes that I could read? Although Batman will always be my favorite and the focus of my collecting, but I want to be able to enjoy all superheroes! I want to read Green Lantern, Justice League, Superman, Flash, Spider-man, DareDevil, Fantastic Four, The Avengers and so on..

Why are they all so bad ass?
