Both Sherlocks met, and it was awesome. Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jnr were in the same room, at the same time, and nobody died of a charisma overdose.
But really, who is the better Sherlock? WHO? Fortunately, highly scientific testing can tell us.
TEST 1: HATS
RDJ: hipster hat that an old lady would wear whilst drinking daytime wine.
Benedict: hat that a London fishmonger would have sweated into in the Edwardian era.
TEST 2: SIMMERING HOMOEROTICISM
3. TEST: TECH-SAVVINESS
RDJ: Tech Savvy.
Benedict: Not Tech Savvy.
TEST 4: FANDOM
Benedict's fans have a fearsome name.
Who are RDJ's fans gonna call themselves? "Robert's Dowdy Juniors"?
TEST 5: HANDLING OF UMBRELLAS.
RDJ's so G, he gets another dude to carry his umbrella for him.
...but Benedict's got some kind of magical umbrella skillz.
TEST 6: MAGAZINE COVERAGE
Benedict got a cover of TIME freakin' magazine.
...but he never made it onto Sassy.
TEST 7: MUSICAL MAGICIANRY
RDJ killed it on stage with Sting.
...but Benedict can apparently conduct an entire orchestra.
TEST 8: LOOKALIKES

Benedict looks like Otters.
TEST 9: STONE FOXINESS

TEST 10: APTITUDE FOR SHERLOCK

So...with an overwheling majority, the best Sherlock is...BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH!!
