Batman vs. Superman: Yes, This Debate

Updated on March 12, 2015

Batman vs. Superman

Who would win in a fight?

See results

Does anyone else know that Superman would win in a fight Batman vs. Superman?

Point 1: Batman is a HUMAN man with a promise to protect his city of Gotham, with no super powers, with no super strength, but who has a ton of money and a lot of high tech gadgets he uses with his fighting skills. Superman, on the other hand, is an alien man with super-human strength who can literally move mountains using only his super alien muscles and who doesn’t need any gadgets or basically anything Batman has to use.

Point 2: Batman fights bad guys; Human bad guys: Bad guys who have limits to their strength and who are apparently not as smart as Batman is considering he beats them every time. Superman fights bad guys with super-human powers just like him, and when he does fight humans, he DOMINATES because of his indestructibility.

Point 3: Batman gets hurt and he gets hurt easily compared. He gets hit in the ribs with a metal pole? BOOM, broken ribs. Some guy catches him off guard and decides to shoot him in the face? BOOM, dead. Superman gets hit in the ribs with a metal pole and the pole breaks. Superman gets shot in the face (or anywhere) and the bullet flattens. Of course, the only acceptation here is that Superman can and does get hurt several times, but ONLY with the use of Kryptonite which is extremely difficult to find. Even through Bruce Wayne may have as much money as he needs, you can’t pay for something you can’t find.

Point 4: Even though Batman has all of his gadgets, he still can’t obliterate or even scratch Superman given that everything would either break when making contact with Superman or if something heavy were to fall or be thrown at him, it would just mold around his body and he would be able to throw it off him like a blanket. Batman would break his hand if he tried to hit Superman, and NO, Batman’s suit would NOT be strong enough to break Superman’s face unless he has the elusive Kryptonite sown into his suit.

Point 5: If it’s just a straight up combat fight with no weapons, obviously Batman wouldn’t have a snowballs chance in Hell (like ZERO percent chance) because Superman would still be super.

Suggestion: If it was a straight up combat fight where Superman was “dumbed” down to human strength using the right amount of Kryptonite, then it might actually be a fight worth watching and Batman might actually have a chance. In this scenario, Batman would have his human strength and Superman would have the amount of strength a human his size would have- like maybe the amount of strength Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has. Now THAT would be something to watch and would totally be a fight between two men who know how to kick ass.

Side Note: Batman vs. Superman is not even a fair fight (when there is no Kryptonite involved). Superman is a whole level (or two) higher than Batman in the super hero department. It’s like putting Kick Ass up against Spiderman. It’s like a bleeding baby being thrown into shark infested waters. Child’s play. I understand why people fight about it, though. I mean, EVERYONE just has to test out the strength of something that is indestructible.

Side Note 2: There is a considerable difference between Batman and Superman: Batman fights the evil in his city because of the murder of his parents and that gives him a lot more anger, UMPH, resilience, and will to fight on no matter his injuries. Batman is a lone fighter, except for when Robin comes in, but that’s a different subject. Superman fights because he knows he is an alien who is many, many times stronger than anyone on Earth and he wants to use his strength to the advantage of the human population whom he has grown up with (unknowingly different from them) and has formed human relationships which are all he knows. I would say the driving force that keeps Clark Kent going is his love for Lois Lane and those he loves in his human world despite the fact that he is an alien.

      Super is in his name.

      Batman can't even fly like his namesake.

      The better challenge would be the Flash versus Batman.

      I agree Superman would win especially in a fair fight.

      I suspect Kryptonite will play a part during the fight in the movie.

      This Batman is supposed to be an older and presumably more highly evolved intellectually than the recent Dark Knight trilogy. The way they portrayed Superman in the last movie he was kind of a "Doe-eyed" innocent somewhat mentally slow in the ways the world works. Batman has the "street smarts".

      In addition to Kryptonite Superman is supposedly has a weakness for "magic", spells cast on Superman affect him the same as they would anyone else. Lead: While lead protects Superman from kryptonite, it also prevents his X-ray vision from being able to see the items and objects encased in the material.

      The only way Batman has a chance is to hypnotize Superman or get him to chase him into a leaded room filled with Kryptonite. I forgot he could fashion one his Batman suits out of Kryptonite material too. LOL!

      There have always been a couple of things that bugged me about Superman/Clark Kent.

      1. Glasses as disguise? People can't tell he's Superman? Come on!:)

      2. Changing in phone booths around the city or wherever.

      Look I can imagine he's wearing the suit underneath his street clothes but what about those RED Boots?! Are they everywhere? LOL!

      I didn't even have to think twice before answering your poll. It would be no contest and Superman wins every time.
