Superman/Batman: Public Enemies
(2003-2011) #3

“It is a remarkable dichotomy. In many ways, Clark is the most human of us all. Then… he shoots fire from the skies and it is difficult not to think of him as a god. And how fortunate we all are that it does not occur to him.

“Sometimes, I admit, I think of Bruce as a man in a costume. Then, with some gadget from his utility belt, he reminds me that he has an extraordinarily inventive mine.”

PFFT. Like. This is rarely the case when you compare Batman and Superman, but how hilariously reverent and respectful Bruce is here and just plain flattering and Clark’s just “I sometimes think my best friend is just some looney guy in a bat costume and then I remember he’s pretty smart!”

Nice. Just. 

Clark, aren’t you a reporter? And like, supposed to be good with words?
