@byondeon: Why not?

Have you read a Batman comic? He is just crazy and is portrayed as such. Dressing up as a bat and beating people isn't badass..

One is grown man in a suit running around like a maniac and has a fetish towards chasing clowns, the other one is a badass robot that also happens to be a truck with cool paintings.

Poll is closer than I would think it would but Batman, and easily. Robots turning into cars were only ever cool when we were 7.

@byondeon: I've read plenty of Batman comics, have you? Yes, there are writers that make him silly like Scott Snyder who caters to the fanboys but he's seriously badass in the comics written by Alan Grant, most of which were illustrated by Norm Breyfogle whose art style make the character look more intimidating than usual.

@ghostodoofus2: He is not badass though. He has had some moments where he is badass. But mostly, he is depicted as a whiny baby.. And, I will say I have not read all Batman comics. But do you really need to read every single issue where Batman have been a character to gauge if he is badass or not?

@byondeon: No you don't but Alan Grant's run is one of my favourite comic runs in awhile, I was struggling to find good Batman comics after already reading Hush, The Killing Joke, The Demon trilogy, Venom etc. but then I found the ones by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle's, I binged through it, so so good.

Batman along with Kratos and Deathstroke is the most badass characters in fiction.

@beyond_dreams: There's also Guts and Judge Dredd but they're just not as well known.
