As a child, I was a fan of Superman – him with the ability to fly, X-Ray vision, and what not.
But, as I grew older, I looked at many fictional characters and have decided that I like Batman more than Superman. The reason? Batman is a self-made person and actually does not have ANY super-power. He relies on his on humanness and various gadgets to gain an edge over his villains.
Hence, there is no dependence on a ‘God-given’ gift or of being ‘special’. It is all about being self-made and own choices.
