Manliest Superhero Ever

Taken from a fan's suggestion, this week the boys debate who is the most manly superhero.

Watch Video

"I'M GONNA BEWM BEWM!" Hilarious.

I agreed with Wonderwoman from the get go, Superman is a puss.

Thumbs up - Captcha agrees.

Superman is invulnerable to everything but kryptonite. Wonderwoman can deflect bullets but can still be hurt. Overcoming pain is more manly.

Superman only has superpowers because of our sun. Wonderwoman trained to be in top physical condition. The self made hero is more manly.

Wonderwoman fought the Nazis. Superman didn't. Fighting Nazis is more manly

Case closed.

This comes to mind because I was just watching Atop the Fourth Wall last night, but Kyle should've done Linkara's "I'm a Man! *punch*" while Chris was drinking.

I'm not even going to comment on the rest of the debate, since it was just them being trolls, but it was fun trolling.

That was awesome. I love you guys.

They should give Wonderwomen a penis and make her into a man and make superman into a women.

Next's week topic: Cloud Strife vs Squall Leonhart

who is the better male FF hero?

As hilarious as the beard-on-top-of-beard bit was, and obvious intent to troll everyone aside, I'll just leave this here:

Superman is so manly that he has to disguise himself by costuming himself as a wimpy nerd. All other heroes are themselves until they put on their costume at which point they become a hero; Superman is so manly he has to put on a costume just to fit in with the regular folk.

Instead of horniness, sex appeal is another trait of manly men. Superman always has women fawning over him. Wonder Woman doesn't. Point Superman.

That should about tie it up, right?

Also, a debate I'd like to see: best now-obsolete gaming console. I'm thinking things like Atari, Colecovision, TI99-4A... all the other brands of gaming machine that died off in the console wars.

Was this the thing that Kyle tried to say on the podcast? I don't think it was any more trolling then the usual episode. I think it's best when there is no right answer.

If by "Manliness" you mean Stereotypical modern societal male traits (ie: uber-jock DB)... Then YES Wonder Woman all the way.

But if you're talking about the post-Victorian classification... Then it's obviously Superman.

I think THIS answers the question.

Ok got the next one, best super hero alter-ego, any super hero as long as they have an alter ego.

I sense a MovieBob topic.

Furthermore,

Superman vs.....man I don't even know, but worst superhero outfit.

Wolverine maybe? Or otherwise the early x-men outfit.

Hmmm, Olympic Bullets and Bracers. T-shirt go!

lol, wow....

well .... i always hated super man for being a glorified boyscout so any time he loses makes me happy. but this? LOL less 'manly' then Wonder Woman XD HA!

DVS BSTrD:
Superman is invulnerable to everything but kryptonite. Wonderwoman can deflect bullets but can still be hurt. Overcoming pain is more manly.

Or magic. Or really hard punches (like the ones from Darkseid or the Flash [one of the superheroes capable to fight Sups]). Or omega beams.

Question is, which comments do you read. The escapist ones or the facebook ones?

good troll. much laughs lol

and i agree. ^-^

I have to agree with Chris on this one. Dammit Kyle I thought you were going to mention that the greek sun god is Apollo not the whole sun dry clay comment. That would of been a better argument (like I don't know Apollo is a guy so he is brofist with Superman?).

I don't even think Superman is in the running for the worst outfit.

Find a couple rejected Superheroes from the '60s, and that's all you need.

Oh god...I lost it when Dan went "YEAH" after the mention of women being on top. I was wondering whose mind that was joining mine in the gutter...Hell, my mind has permanent residence there!

CAPTCHA: marry me

GYAH!!! My computer is stalking me!!!

Wonder Woman isn't really made of clay, neither is she a golem. The sculpture that made her was made of clay but the clay was turned into living, authentic flesh. Think Adam (Bible) he was made from dust but that doesn't mean he is made of dust or that he was a golem. The same applies to Wonder Woman.

All I got from this was: Chris is Santa........

Huh... the more You know.

Great video, guys. I think you need more ridiculous debates like this one. I'll take funny over serious any day!

What's next? To see if the Joker or Lex Luthor is the better hero?

Do a worst ending episode. Mass Effect 3 vs. Neo Genesis Evangelion or something else. (Note, I haven't watched the anime, so this is only from what I heard.)

She got ladyparts and sparkes ? lol.

Also I agree with Dan about woman on top: Yeeeaaaaahhhhhhh!!

Both, my good chum!

coheedswicked:
That was awesome. I love you guys.

And we love you too

It's makes no sense to call Wonder Woman manly. She was William Moulton Marston's very ideal of femininity: powerful and liberated, yet peace-loving and submissive. Mind you, there's a lot of bondage in her early comics...

The real answer here is Amanda Waller.

She makes Superman look like a bitch.

Possibly your best episode ever. And I totally and unironically agree that Wonder Woman is more manly than Superman. She is also more feminine than him. Superman is more a symbol than anything else, so he's kinda sexless. Anyhow, as I said, Best. Episode. Evah!

Who has the most awesomnessatud between the both of you Chris v.s. Kyle also add dan in for good measure

It would have been ten times as awesome if it was superman vs batman.

Okay, neither of these are the manliest hero.
Know who is?

The batman, that's who.
He does all the stuff these guys do without superpowers.

Wonderwoman is more man then 2 "Superman"'s put together.
Not only does she fly a get, deflect bullets, and willingly kill if she has to, but she also chillaxes on an island of BABES! Whats more manly then your own Harem? The japanese seem to think a Harem is the ultimate state of man! At least, thats what manga/anime sales indicate.... ((im joking here, dont worry))

Still though, WonderwoMAN is way more manly then Superman. A real man doesnt try to conform to "societal ideals" on what a MAN is! If he were a real man, he'd be getting hammered with Batman, watching Megas XLR on the weekends, and calling children "FGGTS" on CoD. Not working in a news room, hiding his identity. HES F*CKING SUPERMAN! He can do what he wants! But nope. Hes more like Superwoman, and the world is his kitchen which he happily cleans every chance he gets.

Wonder Woman's plane is invisible. No man would ever want their chosen mode of transport to be invisible. A man would want it as visible as possible! If at all possible with phat rims and flame decals.

Though I spose that's more of an argument to why WW isn't masculine.

Coming up with arguments for the masculinity of Superman is pretty hard.
