Batman vs. Superman=Muhammad vs. Jesus?

Something occurred to me the other day. What if you were to ask someone who is there favorite superhero and they gave a response either Batman or Superman. This may seem odd but my thinking is if they say Batman…they are more likely to believe in Muhammad (saaws) and if they say Superman they are more likely to believe in Jesus (as).

Batman being a character who could very well exist in real life (having no super powers) while Superman is all super powers. Take those two archetypes and apply them to religion and you see the parallel. Muhammad (saaws) is seen as more rational and ‘down-to-earth’ whereas Jesus (as) is seen in the Christian tradition as being a god. Do you get what I’m saying?  Just an idea to perhaps get a quick overview of people’s beliefs indirectly.

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdik ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk. Ameen.


  1. I’m way more into Batman, so maybe you’re onto something. You see the teasers on youtube? Looks siiiiiiiiick inshallah.
