** Superman sees Batman dark and vengeful lifestyle as nothing less than self destructive, since it's so opposed to his optimistic beliefs and he is the first to stop Batman when he steps out of line.
** Batman sees Superman's carefree all powerful omnipotent personality as a timebomb waiting to happen and won't kneel to authority like Superman does. Seeing it as a system that can be corrupted and believes Superman despite being a trusted friend can be corrupted as well.
