This is one of those gags that bummed me out, because five minutes after I posted it I came up with a better version:

  • Man vs. man
  • Man vs. Batman
  • Superman vs. Batman
  • Spider-man
  • Spider-man (again)



In a writing course I took, we spent a class on discussing the various 'types' of stories/plots that exist. What sticks in my head after all this time was the argument, that really, there are only two kinds of stories. Someone Goes on a Journey and/or A Stranger Comes to Town. I don't think it was meant seriously, but it was fun brainstorming various famous stories and deciding which category they fell under!

Best thing since rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock. Thanks for this. N. B. Spider-Man (again) is infinitely recursive for which see Marvel since, oh, about the Tet Offensive.
