As we all know in [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870), Batman and Superman will be trading blows with each other some point during the film. But who really has the edge over the other? This article will be breaking down the character feats and who has an advantage over one another and will ultimately decide the verdict.
Batman has the edge over Superman in the hand to hand department. In Man of Steel, even though Superman did end up beating the Kryptonians and Zod, the only reason why he ended up winning was because he was stronger than all of them due to his time on Earth and absorbing the Sun rays longer.But Zod and Faoroa had little to no trouble beating Kal-El in hand to hand as they were more experienced than him in combat. This incarnation of Batman appears to be a expert martial artist who is very effective in combat and could give our beloved Superman loads of trouble when the two collide. If Batman evens the playing field against Superman and it comes down to trading blows, expect Batman to have a serious edge in that department.
Batman has no superpowers at all while Superman has a vast array of abilities like heat vision, freeze breath, flight, superhuman strength and etc. That gives Superman a serious edge as he can use those super abilities of his to aid him in battle with Batman. Batman gonna have a tough time trying to overcome this and could be the deciding factor that gives Superman the win.
At some point during the movie Batman will get his hands on kryptonite and line his mech suit with kryponite to go up against Superman. Seeing as how Superman get severely weakened when around kryptonite and slowly starts to lose his strength, this is a serious advantage for Batman seeing how it evens the playing field. If Batman is able to even the play field and go up against a weakened Superman who is gradually losing his powers because of it, the odds are in Batman favor to be the last man standing and win the clash.
Superman holding back
There a good chance that Superman holds back his strength when fighting Batman as he does not want to kill him but probably just reason with him. But seeing as how Batman has a personal vendetta against the boy in blue, Batman not gonna want to hear and wants to make Superman pay for what he did in Metropolis. If Superman does end up holding back while fighting Batman like he always does, expect Batman to be the winner as he will be giving it his all and have no mercy on Superman. Ultimately, Superman being the nice guy he is might end up leading to his downfall when fighting Batman.
Disadvantage: Kinda Batman
The mech suit that Batman wears won't enhance his strength but buy him time for whatever Batman has planned meaning his mech suit not used for extensive combat purposes. Seeing as how the mech suit won't enhance it strength just like it did in the comic book The Dark Knight Returns, Superman might have an easy time facing Batman in combat and it won't be so much of a fight after all. But the thing that stood out to me was that director Zack Snyder say it will buy Batman time for. For what exactly? We'll just have to find out when the movie releases.
Logic says Batman should stand no absolute chance against Superman seeing as how he is a simple human and Superman basically a god. But this is a comic book world and little to no logic is use in comic books so all that is thrown out the window.
If Superman walks into the battle with not a care in the world and expect this to be a easy fight because Batman is just a human with cute little toys and gadgets then he has another thing coming. Batman is not just some ordinary human, he a human who is willing to stare in the face of gods and not blink. Throughout comics and cartoons, Batman, more times than not has constantly been able to outsmart and defeat people who are physically stronger than him because of his deadly mind and wit. Underestimating Batman is a costly mistake that could end up being your downfall. If Superman walks into this battle underestimating the Dark Knight and thinks it will be an easy win then Superman fans might have a serious fit over the outcome of the battle.
Verdict/Prediction: Who do I think will win the battle between Batman and Superman? I choose Batman simply because he the goddamn Batman. Just kidding but seriously i choose Batman simply because of the kryptonite he will line up in his suit and whatever time he buying when he going up against Superman. If Batman brings down Superman down to his level and it comes to a battle of trading blows then Batman will come out on top seeing how he is the superior fighter between the two. So my pick for the winner is Batman.
