Why does Doctor who kick the ass of Anakin Skywalker, spiderman, batman, superman, and all those other super heroes_

Why the doctor? He's the last of the timelords, an omnipotent, omniscient creature who seems to never die, when on death's doorstep he regenerates into the same organism but with a changed personality, set of tastes, interests, and most obviously body. He typifies the stereotype of an eccentric English genius, in his tardis (which in the distant past was a polymorphic time machine, which would fit in with the surroundings until it broke and remained forever a police box), which is bigger on the inside than on the outside, and travels with a host of assistents who don't really understand him.

The doctor uses intellect rather than physical power, he shuns guns and weaponry, knowing every problem has a solution which can be resolved by wit. Many a time the viewer doesn't understand his motives, though discovers the admirable reason in a future episode.

He is like Merlin, like Dumbledore, I wouldn't be surprised if J.K.Rowling, a fan of doctor who herself used the figure of the doctor as an inspiration for Dumbledore. By fooling his enemies and acquintances that he hasn't a clue, with humor (the 2nd and 4th Doctors bought fame to the simple question 'anyone want a jellybaby' in the most periculous moments).

Perhaps most significantly, his character and his species is somewhat a mystery, and as one continues to watch and read the stories, one gets a sense that this a very powerful ancient being.
Ultimate mix, titles and regenerations from 1960s til now.
