Earlier this week, we posed a simple question on Twitter -- "Who would win in a fight: Superman or Batman?" -- and conducted a poll and asked for rationale.
Here's a look at the poll results:

Aware that there's a full spectrum of wise, funny and cruel reasons for superiority, we were curious to hear them. A few of the best from our Twitter followers, and then a few from the Buffalo.com staff:

@BuffaloDotCom Supes wins straight up, but given planning time and surprise, Bats. But both would let other win cause they're Superfriends.

@BuffaloDotCom Superman can do ANYTHING. Batman is a rich li’l orphan baby w/ a tool belt. Superman could melt him or punch him into space.

@BuffaloDotCom Batman only because of he knows all of Superman's weaknesses. Laser eyes and ice breath can only do so much for Superman

From the staff:
@BuffaloDotCom It's SUPER-man! He has super powers. Batman has a sweet tool belt and a car. Hawkman could give him a fight.
