Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice!
By now everyone has heard of the upcoming Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice movie. But no one has asked or wondered, who would actually win in a fight Superman OR Batman? Well we're going to break it down a little, and divide who would win by the powers they have & the advantages that they may have over one another! DC Universe has really expanded just the idea of having these superhero movies, Bringing in a whole new era of Heroes & Villains. DC Comics have decided to put two of their most iconic heroes in a battle, to have them fight each other! Let's break down everything from the start to kick this off!
First: Batman (Bruce Wayne)!
Batman is a fictional superhero who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics, as well as in a number of movie, television, and video game adaptations. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939). Originally named "the Bat-Man", the character is also referred to by such epithets as "the Caped Crusader" and also "the Dark Knight" and "the World's Greatest Detective". Batman is the secret identity of Bruce Wayne, an American billionaire, industrialist, and philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on criminals, an oath tempered with a sense of justice. Wayne trains himself both physically and intellectually and dons a bat-themed costume to fight crime. Batman operates in the fictional Gotham City, assisted by various supporting characters including his crime-fighting partner, Robin, his butler Alfred Pennyworth, the police commissioner Jim Gordon, and occasionally the heroine BatGirl. (Both BatGirl & Robin have not made any official appearances in any of the movies except The Dark Knight Rises, where it was speculated that they were teased/shown off. BatGirl = Selina (Anne Hathaway), Robin = Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Many people have wanted an appearance of both of them in the DC Universe but criticism is not a worry to the producers of the franchise, but more of a time and the right actor to play both of them issue (Hinting at a totally separate movie for both of them, which wouldn't happen). Batman surely will not be going anywhere any time soon that's for sure though, as DC Comics have seen incredible feedback on the last few movies. Who knows, we might even see a couple of Batman's greatest villains featured in Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice! But as of now, fans are surely hyped for it! (Speculated Release Date for Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice: 2016).
Batman has defeated countless enemies such as Ra's Al Ghul - League of Shadows & The Scarecrow in (Batman Begins (2005) and then the Joker in The Dark Knight (2008) and then Bane in The Dark Knight Rises (2012). Many have guessed that Batman (Bruce Wayne) learned most of his fighting skills while being in the League of Shadows. And that if it weren't for Bruce Wayne's parents being killed this would all be non existent. Being a Billionaire certainly does come with it's perks, throughout the story-line of Batman (Bruce Wayne) he spends nearly half of his personal fortune and Wayne Enterprises on gadgets and new vehicles to be used against fighting crime. For example; The Bat; The Tumbler; His Legendary Bat Suit; and others. Aside from being a very, very powerful person in the business world he is also very smart, he get's that there's boundaries of what he can do and what he can't do. He's very relentless when he fights, he doesn't back down during fights, and I think he's pretty much proved it through out comics & movies, and that's the way DC has betrayed him. The DC Universe has claimed he knows over 127 Fighting Styles, His favored fighting style is obviously Martial Arts. Unlike most superheroes, he does not possess any superpowers; he makes use of intellect, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, physical prowess, martial arts skills, an indomitable will, fear, and intimidation in his continuous war on crime. Now with all that having being said, with Christian Bales leaving of the Batman role, and the new arrival of Ben Affleck, It's really going to take a turn on fans of the Batman movies, when someone talked about Batman, the first thing we would all bring up is Christian Bale, Why you must ask? Because it seem's as if he was possibly the best Batman. He really did fit the role of Batman, from his look, to his fighting, all the way to his voice acting. He was a very iconic version of Batman that will be missed by many of the people who has followed the franchise for years, because he really did try his best at being a good Batman.
Real Name: Bruce Wayne.
Origin: Gotham City.
Fighting Skills: 127 Unique Fighting Styles such as Hand to Hand Combat, Boxing, Karate, Martial Arts, Tae Kwon Do (Also trained to fight in the League of Shadows, possibly where he could of learned most of the fighting styles he knows to this day).
Occupancy: Owner of Wayne Enterprises.
Benefits: Possible Military Contracts, Billionaire, League of Shadows Training, Gadgets, Smart , The knowledge of certain things (ETC).
Sidekicks: Robin, BatGirl (Not made an official Appearance). You can also count Lucious Fox and Alfred Pennyworth if you want to.
Second: Superman (Clark Kent)!
Superman is a superhero that appears in comic books published by DC Comics, and is considered an American cultural icon. The Superman character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster in 1933, and the character was sold to Detective Comics, Inc. (later DC Comics) in 1938. Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June 1938) and subsequently appeared in various radio serials, television programs, films, newspaper strips, and video games. With the success of his adventures, Superman helped to create the superhero genre and establish its primacy within the American comic book. Superman's appearance is distinctive and iconic. He usually wears a blue costume, red cape, and stylized red-and-yellow "S" shield on his chest. This shield is used in a myriad of media to symbolize the character. Superman also has a sidekick named Superwomen which has appeared in comic books and cartoons, but never has made an appearance in actual movies, even though the DC Universe has always tried to make her apart of it, They fear backlash from fans. I personally what love to see a female superhero. We've never really had a real female "Superhero" and I'd love to see it! Especially on the side of one of the most popular and iconic hero in comic book history. Superman may have a very lot of superpowers but it's been show that he also has a very substantial amount of weaknesses, so keep that in mind. Every superhero has its defects and believe me, Superman has many of them. (Henry Cavill, in my opinion is the best Superman ever). Hopefully one day Superman and Superwomen will make an appearance one day in a film, fighting crime together. (It's been guessed that a Superwomen movie is coming after Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice, It just hasn't been confirmed as of yet).
The origin story of Superman relates that he was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's destruction. Discovered and adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife, the child is raised as Clark Kent and imbued with a strong moral compass. Very early on he started to display superhuman abilities, which, upon reaching maturity, he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity. Superman resides and operates in the fictional American city of Metropolis. As Clark Kent, he is a journalist for the Daily Planet, a Metropolis newspaper. Superman's primary love interest is Lois Lane and his archenemy is super-villain Lex Luthor. After the years leading up to one of the biggest DC Universe Movies Man of Steel, DC Comics have definitely hinted at many possibilities of a Superman vs Batman movie, but never really knew how the two actors would play it out. Unlike Batman though Superman seem's to have powers, which are; Super Strength; The Ability to Fly; Laser Eyes; The Ability to see through Walls and Objects; The Ability to handle Harsh Environment's; And being totally Bullet Proof and X-Ray Vision, He can fly through space without needing oxygen, Super Vision.. Many have speculated after Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice, Superman's new home will based out of the Arctic. In the recent Man of Steel when Superman defeated General Zod, It really showed off what Superman can do to enemies, meaning Batman vs Superman might be the best selling movie aside from others of 2015-2016 and so on, two heroes with an immense amount of power or strength fighting each other. I would also like to point out a very specific part of a comic book and Superman Returns (2006) that I think we all remember, When Superman almost dies from a bullet made of kryptonite. Bringing up the question, will Superman have possible defects in Batman vs Superman, will Superman have to face things that he just can't control even with all those powers that he has? You decide.
Real Name: Clark Kent.
Origin: Krypton, Kansas.
Superpowers: Super Strength, The Ability to Fly, Laser Eyes, The Ability to see through Walls & Objects, X-Ray Vision, and Bullet Proof, Being able to handle Harsh Environment's, He can fly through space without needing oxygen, Super Vision.
Fighting Skills: Many stories depict Superman as a very capable fighter with or without his abilities, as he has been trained by both Wildcat in boxing and Mongul in the fighting arts. He has fought and learned from Wonder Woman and has also learned martial arts techniques from Batman.
Occupancy: Writer at the Daily Planet.
Benefits: Superpowers, The knowledge of certain things, Smart, Doesn't need oxygen to survive (ETC).
Sidekicks: Superwomen (Not made an official Appearance).
Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice! (Release Date: N/A)
Results: With everything put together, I'm sorry for all of you Batman fans but Superman wins this... Even if everything was coming down on Superman he could just make it easier on himself and fly off onto another planet. It's been shown that he doesn't technically need oxygen to fly in space, He has many superpowers, Having Billions of Dollars doesn't match defying physics. When you defy physics it is much different than having a suit of armor, and many fancy gadgets, the fight wouldn't even be worth it for Batman as many Superman fan's in the scientific community has concluded that it would be almost impossible for him to match Superman's powers. But don't be worried, DC Universe will never allow Superman to kill off Batman.
Here's a video of a YouTube user named "V Sauce 3" explaining the amount of force Superman would have if he had punched you in Real Life:
