Batman vs. The Punisher

Batman vs. The Punisher

The Dark Knight vs. Death's Deadlist Servant. Who wins this one?

I love stories about vigilantes and I have two favorite vigilantes and they are Batman and the Punisher. They both have very similar back stories they both lost loved one in horrible acts of violence and then dedicated their lives to defeating evil. They both have no powers but a lot of assets.


Batman is probably one of the greatest superheroes ever created but his entire existence is based off of vengeance.

Batman's abilities-

Martial Arts- Batman is an expert martial artist and one of the grestest.

Strength-Batman is a great fighter so he needs to be very strong.

Weapons/equipment specialist- Batman has a large amount of weapons from Batarangs to the Batmobile.

Athletics- batman is a geat athlete he can jump pretty long distances and do a lot of acrobatic stunts.

Brains and intelect- They don't just call Batman the World's Greatest Detective for nothing he is one of they smartest people alive in the comic book universe.

The Punisher

Punisher's abilities.

Weapons specialist-Unlike Batman the Punisher is not afraid to use guns he is a brutal killing machine who gives no mercy.

Expert marksmen-The Punisher is well trained in weapons like guns,grenades,and rocket launchers.

Expert Fighter- The Punisher is not just a shoot em up kind of guy he is a great hand to hand fighter as well.

Death-Again unlike batman the Punisher kills the criminals he hunts and usually kills them very brutally.

The conclusion- Now who would win in this battle of crime fighters The Dark Knight or the Punisher. Would Batman's martial arts and intelect defeat the Punisher's weapons and strength, or would the Punisher make Batman his next kill.

Who would win?Please give details for your opinions if you can. ENJOY!!

one on one hand to hand combat,batman wins.

but if he didn't know the punisher was there maybe a sniper shot to the back of the head.

punisher wins,he ain't scared to kill like "i don't like to kill batman".

Yeah my opinion is tht Batman ould win if it was a hand to hand match but if Punisher got some of his guns it might be a little more difficult.On the other side Batman has fought many armed villains before like Deadshot or Hush.

BATMAN does have's superstrenght. He
reguarly works out with a 1000lbs benchpress
that's not the peak of human perfection that's SUPER HUMAN!!

BATMAN with his super-power and weapons wins this one!!

not trying to be mean but this is poorly written
lots of misspelled words and grade school level
character breakdowns.
maybe you should check out sagemode verses set-up
this is pretty bad again sorry dude.

1) They DO NOT have similar backgrounds: Punisher is 100% american marine special forces badass. Batman is a rich, gizmo centric trained ninja

2) What are the parameters of the fight? Are they hunting for each other? If so Punisher takes him out a mile away from a rooftop. Hand to hand? Batman, he simply has the edge here

3) Batman may be technically smarter, but Punisher is a master tactician who has to think on his feet, where to get his gear, what angle to approach from. All of Batman's gadgets make him soft. Punisher has had the crap kicked out of him, flesh torn, bones broken. And it isn't a big event when it happens. He fights on through it all. batman comes off as if he gets shot its a big deal. Batman=World's greatest detective, fine. Punisher worlds greatest ass kicker. I mean I haven't played it yet but does Arkham Asylum have mini games where Batman puts people through table saws?

4) Short Term: Batman Long Term: Punisher. Taking their psychology into it, batman even if he can beat punisher is going to have locked up in Arkham every time. He will not kill Punisher. Punisher will not kill Batman because as guano insane as he is, he is still doing "good work" sort of. Punisher would get locked up and solve all of gotham's problems for Batman, the wuss that he is. And Punisher would do it gladly, then escape, and repeat cycle. Punisher would put Batman out of business. It's like punishing the fox by locking him up in the cage with the chickens

Batman dodges bullets in every single issue, so i'm going with him

thunderguy123- Yeah I know the article is sort of rushed. I didn't want to spend a large amount of time on such a simple article. I just want to know who would win in a fight between the characters.

killwatch- They do to have similar back stories, they want to rid the world of evil because their loved ones were killed.

I was think that they would be fighting in a large lobby sort of room in a skyscaper.

Batman will win definitely but i still love both
Freek - 8/21/2011, 7:30 AM
I LOVE both, but i think Punisher is not a big match for some of Batman's major supervillains so he wouldn't be a big match for the dark knight himself. Plus,Batman has alot of acrobatic skills and the punisher is just a bulky guy who obviously doesn't fly around much so Batman wins on this one

This happened in 1994, when Bruce Wayne was out of commission and Jean-Paul Valley/Azrael was wearing a teched-up batsuit; neither one "won." The Punisher didn't get taken to Arkham, so I suppose he won be default.
And yeah, in the end, eventually The Punisher wins, in the same way that The Joker only needs to win once; once Batman is dead, he's dead (for a couple issues, till we find out that Darksied just blahblahblah-dimension-hopping-blahbblahblah-trying-to-compete-with-the-death-of-captain-america-which-was-also-a-cop-out-blahblahblahlah.
It's all kinda moot; the crossovers are never written organically, they're written to appease people. How the heck else would Wolverine beat LOBO, a guy who drives a space-motorcycle around SPACE with no protection, and regularly takes on SUPERMAN (be extention, Wolverine can beat up Superman).
