Default Why does Batman hate superman so?

I've just finfished Infinite Crisis #1 and I don't understand why Batman seems to hate Superman so much?

Superman didn't have anything to do with the mind wipe, OK he beat him up but he was under mind control.

I'm not saying they should be best freinds but I don't get why he seems to hate him so much?

Batman doesn't hate Superman. They've often been described as "brothers" as far as their relationship goes. Obviously, they have different approaches to their jobs and different personalities, but they'd go through hell and high water for each other.

Right now, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman disagree about some important issues and are under a lot of pressure due to the dissolution of the JLA, the OMACs, Brother Eye, the televised death of Max Lord, etc. That's only going to make the tension among them build in the short run. By the end of IC, they'll probably be closer than ever after uniting and enduring during the worst of times.
 
I'm done.

Because it's easy drama. Like a soap opera.

Because Batman hates it when he's not in control of a situation. Superman's powers pretty much trump Batman's brain. Without Kryptonite (or a red sun-radiation projector) Batman would be dead before he knew it, if Superman wanted him dead. That doesn't sit well with the Bat.

I think Batman worries that Superman could lose control someday and he's so powerful that nothing could stop him. So he refuses to give him any respect to keep him humble.

Specifically in IC #1, I think Batman is disapointed in Superman for several reasons, most of which boil down to the fact that Superman is no longer the guy who the rest of the heroes follow, and hasn't been for a while. I think Bats believes that had Superman been the inspriation he is supposed to be, the mindwipes would never have happened.

Batman has penis envy...

o.k. just kidding, conflict is more intresting to write (and read) then non-conflict, every writer looks for the conflict, even if if said conflict comes from the same side...
If Darkside and Lex are hating on each other we as fans expect it as they are both bad guys, but when its Superman and Batman it pulls us into the story as it they are on the home team so to speak but don't get along.

Superman and Batman the yin and Yang of Comics
powers/no powers
farm mouse/city mouse
light/dark

they are the opposit side of the same coin, and i love it, they shouldn't get along, they care about each others well being, but they shouldn't be hanging out with each other at a BBQ.
