Now, when it comes to debates over which comic-book hero would win in a fight, there's seemingly one golden rule: Batman always wins.
After all, with his superior powers of reasoning, unrelenting drive for vengeance and seemingly never-ending supply of gadgetry (and, of course, his huge popularity), the Caped Crusader is more-or-less unbeatable within the comic-book world.
What, though, if he were to step outside of it?
Well, the latest in Machinima's epic Super Power Beat Down series asks that exact question, in more or less the greatest way possible, by pitting the Dark Knight against the Dark Lord of the Sith himself - Darth Vader.
And, predictably, it's ludicrously awesome (and remarkably professional-looking).
In large part because it features...
Batman. Flying. To. The. Death. Star.
Because that is now a thing, which is obviously an awesome thing.
And Talking to Barbara Gordon Herself, Oracle
Although, admittedly, off screen.
Batman Totally Has The Death Star's Plans
Wait...is Bruce Wayne a Bothan?
There are Actual Stormtroopers
Or, at least, actual people dressed up as them.
...Who Batman Kicks the Asses of
Though, of course there's also...
Darth Vader, Being Awesome
Along with a surprisingly realistic-looking control room.
But, most of all...
We Get to See Batman...
...Fight Darth Vader...
And after that?
Well, Then it Gets Even More Awesome
But...I wouldn't want to ruin it for you...
You can check it out for yourself (or, if you just can't wait, head to around 3:10 to see things get seriously bad-ass).
Trust me - it's worth it for the seriously unexpected ending alone...
I know, right?
What do you guys think, though?
Who would win in a fight between Batman and Darth Vader?
