Superman is better than Batman

Just using movies as an example, The Iron Giant’s emulation of Superman was completely a completely selfless sacrifice.

Batman lied to his confidants about his plane’s autopilot to run away and fake his death.

An Underwater Waterfall?The Island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean hosts a truly remarkable sight. Just off the coast there appears to be an underwater waterfall. This phenomenon is most prominent when looked at from an aerial view, as in this image.Now, fluid dynamics can produce some wondrous effects, but, is cold dense water responsible for this phenomenon?Nope, but there’s still a cool explanation which delves into the topography of the sea floor.Mauritius is located at the southern edge of the Mascarene Plateau, a prominent shelf which can be seen in this image. The depth of the water above the shelf ranges from around 8-150 metres. However, where that shelf ends, there is a massive plunge into the Ocean depths. How massive? We’re talking from going from 150 metres to many thousands of metres.What you’re witnessing, that looks like an underwater waterfall, is actually sand from the shores of Mauritius being driven via ocean currents off of that high, coastal shelf, and down into the darker ocean depths off the southern tip of the island.-Jean

“A British company has produced a “strange, alien” material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the “super black” coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.

If it was used to make one of Chanel’s little black dresses, the wearer’s head and limbs might appear to float incorporeally around a dress-shaped hole.”

Want.

Rest here.

Been sitting on this news for weeks! SO PSYCHED to see such an excellent redesign and to know this character I adore is in such capable hands. Well done, Team Batgirl.
