Batman and Superman are the primal superheroes. It's almost like climbing your way up the tree. You work through the Justice League. And you get closer and closer to the top, to the paramount. And up at the top, there is Superman and Batman. And it's light and dark, absolute duality. And beyond that, there's only The Source. If you could add one name to those, it would be Wonder Woman for the female side of it but basically between them, those characters form the inspiration for every other single superhero that we know. They are just powerful, basic ideas. They are so much fun to play with.
