    Chicago Teachers Union boss Karen Lewis might be cagey about plans to run for mayor, but she has a lot to say on a debate that divides many a comic book geek.

    Lewis took to Twitter on Wednesday night to chime in on a question posed by Our Man in Chicago blogger Scott Smith, who tweeted: "I'm tired. Can we talk about something dumb for a little while? Half an hour? Superman vs Hulk - who wins? Superman obviously. COME AT ME!"

    Seemingly out of nowhere, Lewis replied with one word: "Hulk."

    Then she kept going.

    Should Lewis decide to enter the mayoral race against archnemesis Rahm Emanuel, then at least one of their debate topics should include Superman-vs-Hulk for the entertainment value alone.

    Although, given his famously explosive temper, Emanuel might side with Lewis and embrace Bruce Banner's alter ego over Clark Kent's caped crusader. 

    Your turn: Superman or the Hulk?
