In the world of superheroes, many fans would argue that there is no one greater than the Caped Crusader. Batman is great and all, what with his Batarangs, Batmobile, and occasionally nippled Batsuit, but there is one who reigns supreme among the ranks of costumed heroes.

His name is Batmanuel.


Just look at his beautiful, imposing visage. His large, pointed ears curving around his chiseled jawline. The strappy, brown mask which disguises his appearance while simultaneously allowing you to gaze into his thickly lashed eyes unobstructed. The flowing, velvet cape wrapped around his manly shoulders. This is not a costume you would ever see draped around Batman. Batman hides in the shadows. Batmanuel struts in the sunlight.

Sure, he may be self-centered and a little annoying in his persistence. He may not have the fighting capabilities of the Bat, he may occasionally become the victim when criminals mug him on the subway, but he cares about his friends. So much so that he actually does help ... sometimes.

But more than anything, he is confident. Maybe you don't think he's the greatest superhero of all time, and sure, maybe Captain Liberty refuses to give into his constant flirtations, but he knows how great he is and that's really all that matters.
