We watched Batman: The Dark Knight last night. It was very good. I couldn't help but contrast Batman to Ironman.
Not the movies, but the heroes.
In Batman, in his normal state, the hero comes across as suave, sophisticated and somewhat serious. (I thought) In Ironman, our hero is completely different. Rakish, a charmer. Hilarious too.
Different personalities and yet both undeniably heroic.
Have you seen these movies? What kind of heroic traits do you like to see in the male protagonist of a story?
