Superheroes have no shortage of representation on YouTube, but who's #1? 

Who's your favorite superhero? Doesn't matter. Type their name into a YouTube search and you can watch videos involving them well into the twilight of your life and for several wasted reincarnations after that. I mean, not every single hero. Like, if you love Man-Thing the best, there aren't going to be a lot of videos about that guy.

Upon further reflection, just don't look up Man-Thing.

But all the big heroes have thousands of hours of video dedicated to them. Before we announce the big winner, though, let's take note of a few others in the top 10.

Deadpool comes in at number 10 with 200 million overall views and 8,900 hours of video dedicated just to him. I bet no other dude with a scarred-up face can say that!

Spidey's at number 7 with 340 million views and 7,400 hours, although we're pretty sure that's mostly people re-enacting that stupid cartoon meme.

Logan's in at 6 with 540 million views and 7,800 hours. We're pretty sure Wolverine's as obsessed with himself as comic fans are, so since he's basically immortal, he can pass his off hours just watching himself.

Okay, you can check out the full list here, but let's get down to the nitty and the gritty. The hero who comes in at #1 has a whoppping 3 billion views and 71,000 hours' worth of video. Who is it? It's ...

Batman, of course. Who else? Comics, TV shows, cartoons, movies -- the Bat signal is writ large across the sky no matter where you are in the world and no matter what time of day.
