Who Would Win?

A few days ago, Marc mentioned the eternal debate -- if you matched up two superheroes who would win? This morning in the car, when The Boy once again expressed his disappointment in Superman's not being able to do absolutely everything and stated his belief that Spiderman was really the more interesting character, I asked him -- "If Spiderman and Superman got in a fight, who would win?"

Without missing a beat, he told me, "Superman would win, but they'd never get in a fight. First of all, they are both good guys. Second, they can't fight each other because one is DC and one is Marvel."


Have I ever told you how much I love your kids? They are more intelligent, funnier and wiser than most adults I know.

The concert in the car on the way to the library is priceless!

Thank you, Diane. I think they are rather special.

I've found that the younger kidlets will have these philosophical matters settled quickly (they do actually think about this stuff), and you can forget about trying to change their mind. The older ones tend to agonize over strength "ratings" or fighting savvy.

He will learn in a few years that there have been cross-overs between the two universes, though what you accept as "truth" will depend if you're a DC or Marvel fan.
