Ooh... tough one. Batman is, of course, BATMAN. He's probably the single most prolific superhero around, save Superman, and has the widest variety of interpretations. I mean, he spans the whole gambit of heroic - is he devoted to law and order, or chaos? Is he anti-authority or in favor of it? Is he equal to the public, or see himself as above them? Is he campy or serious? Does he hang out with Robin, or fight serial killers? Both? Neither? So many ways to play him. But Spider-Man is... Spider-Man. I think he's THE hero of the past fifty years, because he so perfectly reflects the current generation. Before the 1950s and 60s, the world looked up to people - it wanted gods and icons. Now, we ARE the gods. Time's Man of the Year was "us" not too long ago. The 60s was the youth revolution. Now we have the internet - it's a world where each person, for better or worse, has a say. And Spider-Man is that kind of hero. He's not particularly well trained, he's not of noble birth, he doesn't have a grand destiny or a guardian angel. Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince - these are disguises, the mortal cloaks that gods wear. But Spider-Man is the first superhero who isn't a hero at all. There is no "Spider-Man" and "Peter Parker" because they're the same person. He's just you and me. He's a teenager whose given something great, and it makes him a better person. He has his troubles and his tragedies, but he keeps on fighting. So, Spider-Man. Because he deserves it.
