London (ANI): Caped crusader Batman has been voted Britain's favourite super hero in a new poll. The Dark Knight pushed webslinger 'Spider-Man" at the second place followed by the 'Superman" at third. Batman, the alter-ego of billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne, has been immortalised in the 1960s TV series as well as a big budget movie franchise.
A video game called Batman: Arkham Asylum was also released last week. “No matter how often he's reinvented - a noir detective in the 40s, a camp icon in the 60s, a gothic Knight in the 80s - he's always the coolest, most iconic and recognisable superhero there is," the Telegraph quoted Dave Golder, editor of SFX.co.uk, the website which conducted the survey, as saying.
'Wolverine" and 'Iron Man" wrapped up the top five.
Britain"s top 10 favourite super heroes are:
5. Iron Man
6. Green Lantern
7. Captain Britain
