Sadly, it depends on what comics you read, as Superman over the years has had a pretty large number of writers, who perceive him differently and write him differently. This makes his character quite inconsistent and hard to tell he's a "good character" all the time. So those points you put in could go to either, except popularity, Superman is clearly more popular

But I would say that since Rebirth they have given him a much more constant human facet than before, Up In The Sky and Superman Vol. 4 represent well what my perception of Superman is as in recent comics, but in general, he is much more than a character, Superman is a symbol of hope and peace throughout the world.

Personally, I consider Superman a better character, and I don't see any problem if someone thinks otherwise, since it would be technically a valid opinion

Intelligence - Superman is generally more intelligent but Luffy is more intelligent in battle smarts department.

Personality - Luffy. Superman is too stiff.

Popularity - Not sure. Superman is most mainstream hero but One Piece is most successful Manga of all time even outselling the Bible. And pretty sure Asians have biggest population.

Kindness / Pure Heart - Luffy I think. Superman has storyline where he is written evil and goes on killing spree.

Character Development - Not sure. Luffy develops as far his skill go but part of his appeal is always saying true to himself. Superman has multiple different writers so this can vary.

Overall I like Luffy a thousand times better. Funny as heck and the walking definition of will power. Superman is just kind of a guy who wears underwear on the outside of his clothes and tries to be a goodie two shoes.

Heck. Some of the One Piece side characters are more developed and better written then Superman is imo.

Superman should be smarter and more popular. Luffy is definitely kinder and has a purer heart.

As for personality and character development, not too sure.

Supes has 80+ years of lore to pick up from, it's not a stretch to say that he's one of the most well written fictional character out there.

Intelligent - Superman is more intelligent

Personality - I prefer Luffy's personality 'cause he's more enjoyable

Popularity - Superman is more popular worldwide and it's not even close

Kindness - Superman is normally kinder, but there are alternate versions of him that are evil

Pure-Hearted - Luffy is more pure-hearted

Character development - Neither?

I personally like Luffy more, but Superman is more iconic and influential.

Superman any day in all categories. Luffy is such a boring protagonist. One Piece is awesome due to the better written supporting characters and world building. Luffy has his badass moments, but I don’t consider him well written or interesting.

What even are these criterias ? Kindness makes you a good character in what way ?

Superman is doo doo like the majority of comic book protags.

Luffy by far as far as consistency, personality and character development and especially characterisation is concerned.

Superman is more kind hearted in general. Sure there are evil versions of him, but Luffy isn't as pure as some people are making him out to be here. He is stubborn , very stubborn. If he connects.with someone or something emotionally or personally he is pure and kind hearted, but when that doesn't have he is just a wild, crazy pirate. He can be very narrow minded, something that he requires in order to pursue a crazy dream such as becoming the pirate king.

Popularity goes superman easily, as far as his brand is concerned.

Intelligence - Superman easily. But when it comes to actual on panel showings especially during fights Luffy acts smarter than he is supposed to be, while superman becomes dumber.

Luffy truly is an amazing and well written character. I love how Luffy cares for his comrades and would do anything to support them.

However, I'm going to say superman.
