    This might seem like a really weird poll (especially with just two people) but I was watching FRIENDS with my sister the other night. In one episode right before Chandler and Monica's wedding, Chandler and Ross buy suits that were worn by Val Kilmer and Pierce Brosnan and argue over which is cooler. So I thought I'd ask all of you.

    As somebody who's father has forced them to watch the Bondathon for as long I can remember, I have to say Bond is cooler. :p

    I suppose it all depends on what definition of 'cool' you mean. If it means suave, etc. comparing Bruce Wayne to Bond (which is really the only way this question should be framed, as Batman vs. Bond is a different kettle of fish).

    I would say Bond. I can't imagine Bond getting drunk and kicking everyone out of a party (ie: Batman Begins).

    Kol - Bruce wasn't really drunk though! :p

    I'm all for Batman. I was never really a huge Bond fan.

    This.

    "The name's man. Batman." - Just doesn't sound half as cool :p

    I'm also sorry to say that Batman will always make me think of this :D

    Batman, Bond is a very close second though.

    I realise he was faking, I just meant that Bond would never drop his cool, suave, controlled demeanor, for any reason, fake or not.

    Bond, he doesn't go hiding in a suit.

    Of course Bond doesn't hide in a suit ... he hides in a tux! ;)

    I thought Batman was cooler long before I ever heard of James Bond. I have to go with the Bat-man. :p

    They are so alike, yet so different.

    Both are gadget loaded, have fast cars, cool suits they look good in(armour and tux wise), have a playboy lifestyle, and always get the bad guy in the end. Hard to choose!

    I like Batman because he became the Dark Knight for the good of his community with nothing for himself to gain. He also has more demons that give his character more depth, and a dark aspect. That and he keeps going even if the people he saves loves or hates him.

    I also like Bond for his world saving abilities, and his suave nature in saving the world. He also looks good doing it.[face_whistling]

    But in the end it is Batman, gotta love that gravely voice when he is in the suit. [face_love]

    I voted for Bond, but Batman has definitely risen in the 'coolness' in his last two films considering what my opinion of him used to be :p

    Let's be honest with ourselves here. You cannot be cool if you are one of the worst spies in history.

    I cite exhibit A. Bond is captured in every movie. His opponents let him win.
    exhibit B. Bond has no clue what is going on half the time.
    exhibit C. Bond is really not that good a shot.

    Maybe if it were Batman vs. Jason Bourne, or someone actually worth their salt, it might be a contest.
