Poll: Who's had better comics so far this decade (2010s): Batman or Aquaman? (13 votes)

Batman 38%
Aquaman 62%

I vote Aquaman. Couldn't get into Snyder's writing and I've not hard many praises for King's run of Batman.

Aquaman’s run this decade has helped define the character. I get the feeling for Batman most of King’s run will be largely ignored or forgotten going forward. Snyder’s run was good but only the first half really matters at this point.

Aquaman has consistently been top 3 for DC since the New 52 has started. He’s the only JL member thats been written that well imo.

Couldn't disagree more.

Snyder's Batman has certain controversies but overall the run was really good. Court of Owls, Endgame, Zero Year are all good. He is one of the reasons I get into Batman but then again King happened SIGH.

@tommythehitman: Agreed, I thought Court of Owls, City of Owls and Death of the Family were fine but it just got worse and worse, Zero Year disappointed me and I stopped after that one.

@morgatu: So if you stopped reading after Zero Year, which you freely admitted, how do you know Snyder's run got "worse and worse"? You didn't read any of it after that.

@gracetrack: Zero Year was the one I finished, I did read half of Secret City and that's the "worse and worse".

Aquaman for three (read two) words: Snyder and King.

batman will continue to be batman and batman is great... but Aquaman has had a huge turn around in public opinion and is finally being taken seriously. so Aquaman.

Aquaman. King is the same guy who had Catwoman one shot three Flahes at the same time, which is simply atrocious writing. I will never forgive him for that

@eichholtz: Geoff Johns makes gold out of every character he writes.

@biswaboxz: I've only read Batman: Earth One, thought he was fine in JL. Other than those, I'm largely unfamiliar with how Johns writes Batman.

@morgatu: Haha I wasn't that serious but it still felt uncanny when Bruce watched Diana and Clark........:p
