Poll Is Spiderman more popular than Superman? (50 votes)

Yes, Spiderman is more popular 56%
No, Superman is more powerful 32%
Yes, Spiderman is more popular than Sups and Bat 12%

Which of these 2 Superhero is more popular, by popular I ain't talking about which is more profitable (cause apparently spidey is more profitable than Sups and Bat, in terms of merchandise sales)

Which superhero is well known around the world, not just in US

Ah, my two favourites. Yeah I'd say Spider-Man is more loved and more popular in that sense, Superman is more mixed, he's more known but not as universally liked, many love him and many others hate him.

I believe he is more popular that Superman, but not as popular as Batman, however if we’re just talking merchandise Spider-Man takes the prize. I believe that Batman takes the lead due to the length of time he has been a part of pop culture. The bat icon may be the most recognized short of the mouse ears.

Superman is still the most iconic hero but spidey and bats have been the top two popular heroes for decades now.

Right now I would say Spiderman thanks in part to the success of marvel/sony films and his video game. Supes is still most iconic superhero around though. Even people who know nothing of comic books and superheroes will often think of superman first when they think of heroes.

@rukelnikovftw: I'm pretty sure that majority of people would disagree with you, it's possible that Spiderman might be the most popular but the part about it not being remotely close just isn't true

Spider-Man is more well liked but more popular? I don’t think so, Superman’s been around way longer and is the person most think of when it comes to a superhero.

Im, going by this, it 5 years old now, so it could have changed, but I dont think it changed that much.

Spidey sells more than Batman, Superman and The Avengers together. It close in NA though.

If this is from 2014 is should be a lot higher now. He’s has 4 movies, 2 tv shows and 2 games since then.

If popularity means financial success, even Iron Man is more popular than Superman.

If popularity means recognitiveness, no other comic book character besides Batman is even close.

Popularity means being liked by people. Recognizability is not popularity.

@rukelnikovftw: I'm pretty sure that we ain't talking about how much they make in merchandise, children loves Spiderman so of course their parents would buy Spiderman toys for them, we are talking about popularity like which is more well known around the world

Depends on what you mean by popularity. If you're going by who is more well-known, then it's Superman, if you're going by who is more liked, then it's Spiderman. I think movies and TV shows play a huge role in who is more liked, it's why Batman and Spiderman are so well liked, their media presence is really good.

Superman has always been given the short end of the stick, he has no good games, tv shows (besides animation) and no good movies (as of the past two decades) that make him likeable, his merchandise however is probably really popular, I've seen a lot of people wearing Superman shirts just because its such an iconic symbol, same thing with Batman.

As a millennial, I like Spidey better; I'm believe Spiderman is more popular among new fans, while Supes is more of a love of older fans.
