Cannon fodder is an informal term for military personnel who are regarded or treated as expendable in the face of enemy fire. The term is generally used in situations where soldiers are forced to deliberately fight against hopeless odds (with the foreknowledge that they will suffer extremely high casualties)
I think that Superman would probably win though, or at least in a fair fight he would.
Exactly why Batman would win. Superman would be all goody-two-shoes wanting a fair fight and all, and Batman would be all "yeah...fair fight...against Superman...yeah...hmmm...get ready for some kryptonite, BITCH!"
Straight up...Superman. I mean c'mon...he can hear you coming 100 miles away, he's invulnerable, heat of a thousand suns heat vision etc. BUT, if given time to prepare...Batman. Bats probably has A through Z contingency plans for dealing with the big blue if needed. And Superman probably wouldn't kill Batman. If Batman saw Superman as a real threat to humanity...Bye Bye Clark. And Superman even once said in a comic, "Batman is the most dangerous man on Earth". If the world's greatest superhero calls you that, he knows something.
Heh...of course. I edited my last post to show a clear vote for Batman.
I have always been more of a Marvel fan so not sure if this has not happened...but if the two were ever to actually fight with a legitimately well written story line the shame is that the ending would be mucked up with some sort of a tie...it seems that is always the case with the super-hero vs super-hero slug fest.
The worst part is that the cover will have some sort of sordid title like "Superman and Batman...FIGHT TO THE DEATH"...by the end of the comic book the only thing that is dead is my attention span.
Christopher Reeves had his neck broken during a horse jumping thingy he was doing (he was into equestrian sports big time) and ended up a quadriplegic. He lasted I think it was nine years in that mode (Superman fanatics feel free to correct that number) before passing from the planet.
There's been a lot written about the "Superman jinx" over the years--seems anybody who played the role of Superman got super-dumped-on in his non-acting life. So I'd have to go with Batman; seems to me he "flies" under the bad luck radar.
It depends what kind of experience we are talking about. Superman now he was so slow at making a move on Lois, zzzzzzzzzz. I think she was the only one he had. Now Batman he is a fast mover lots of experience. He can give Cassanova a good run for his money,
You want a man with a slow hand You want a lover with an easy touch You want somebody who will spend some time Not come and go in a heated rush Baby, believe me I understand When it comes to love, You want a slow hand
I have thought about this issue for a few hours now...
Superman obviously has the strength and physical advantage, but Batman is smarter, and since Lex Luthor has put Superman in danger so many times, Batman could do so as well with the use of some well placed kryptonite.
As both are naturally 'good' deep down, each would not want to kill the other, and I think that capturing and confining Batman and thus 'defeating him' would be easier for Superman to do than the other way around(hell, even Ceasar Romero and Eartha Kitt were able to capture Batman!).
Although I am a bigger Batman fan, I would have to give the edge to Superman, BUT... that is only if one does not consider the all important "Robin factor".
It was recently reported by various sites that Justin Bieber posted on his instagram account saying he was going to be the new boy wonder in the upcoming superman vs. batman film. However, later reports says that he was just messing with all of us, and that he was really only playing robin in...
