Is Bill Gates Better Than Batman? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Mark O'Neill 23-02-2012

It’s the question that has been asked time and time again through the ages – is Bill Gates better than Batman?  Or does the Caped Crusader come out on top every time? Well let’s examine some of the evidence.


* Batman has a deep throaty grating voice (if you ignore the Adam West incarnation). This kind of voice makes Gotham’s enemies quake in fear. Bill Gates has a squeaky geeky voice.

* Batman has the Batcave. Bill Gates has….the Microsoft Redmond headquarters?

* Batman has a really cool black suit with matching menacing mask. Bill Gates wears expensive dress suits and sometimes a snazzy sweater.

* Batman has Robin. Bill Gates has this guy :



Bruce Wayne has Wayne Enterprises making secret weapons in its basement, guarded over by Morgan Freeman. Bill Gates had Microsoft making Windows Vista and the .NET framework. Enough said there.

But one thing they BOTH have in common is that they are both stinking rich – and Bill Gates and his wife Melinda can’t give it away fast enough, through their charitable foundation.  So while we jest about his suits, Steve Ballmer and Windows Vista, it can be argued that Gates is redefining the meaning of the word “heroism”.

Instead of fighting bad guys with a “KAPOW!”, perhaps being a hero is giving what you can afford to charities and making a difference in someone’s life?  What do you think?  IS Bill Gates better than Batman?

    Wow, Bill have always been my idol, but I never thought he's someone like this. Better than those money-sucking politicians. Bill, you're awesome. But I still prefer PS3 over XBOX360. No hard feelings, kay?

    Are lives more important or is a stupid operating system more important.

    He has people who are buying from him, and he is earning money, giving away in charities, so whats the harm?

    So indirectly, people are donating to charities by buying Windows.

    Bill gates recently said this regarding the fact that the world population will soon reach 9 billion people. Bill Gates said, "Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care,
    reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10? or 15
    percent!"  He is basically saying that vaccines, healthcare, and reproductive health services are eugenics programs that are being used to carry out genocide across the earth. 

    Bill Gates recently purchased a few hundred million dollars in Monsanto stocks.  Monsanto GMO crops are proven to cause sterility by the third generation in all animals that consume GMO crops. 

    Bill Gates is also funding research to develop mosquito's that are being released into the environments that injects a "vaccine" that will alter brain chemistry.  Forced mass medication of a population is highly illegal and straight out of a concentration camp playbook.

    Bill Gates has many connections to the modern eugenics uprising, he is
    the poster boy.  His father is a lifetime member of Planned Parenthood
    formerly known as the American eugenics society.  The American eugenics
    society was created by Margret Sanger champion of the philosophies of
    Racial Purity, Ethnic Cleansing, Forced Serialization, and many other
    facets of the eugenics movement.  Margaret Sanger was adored by Adolf
    Hitler, he wrote her fan letters and sent his top ss officers to her conferences to learn about racial purity.

    Do some real research before you put people on a pedestal who meet in secret and discuss how to covertly carry out genocide against humanity.  These people are monsters.

       I would seriously love to see your sources. And no, a webpage written by a conspiracy theorist wearing a tinfoil hat won't do!

    OMG Bill, the kiddies are quoting the internet again. You think Bill has the monopoly on urm attempting a monopoly? I've got news for you. It's just as common as your passed down opinion.

       Nothing apparently. All you Microsoft bashers are obviously running Mac OS or Linux right? Right?

           Yes I am a Windows user.  Me ribbing Gates and Ballmer is just my zany British sense of humour :-)

    You should explain the behaviour he used to get the billions in the first place with his immoral business practices!  A crook can give away a lot of money, doesn't make him a saint (or superhero!)

      Every agency in the world that regulates M$FT has his face on a Wanted Poster. Bill Gates is a Thief ... An Incompetent Thief.

    Well that Steve Jobs who stole and stole again to perfect his iThings and pledged to destroy anyone who would copy features from his products died wealthy..from cancer. Well, as much as I don't like the high price of Windows in my currency I'd vote for Bill Gates if he would run for any presidency.

    This is... just wrong, you don't compare anyone (or anything) to Batman
