The Clash of the Generation: Batman vs. Superman! Who Would Win?
For decades and decades, comic book fans from across the globe have been debating who would win in an all-out brawl between the two heroes: Batman vs. Superman! Could this editorial introduce this argument to it's conclusion? Read on to find out!
Batman and Superman have to be the two of the most iconic comic book characters alongside with some of the Marvel characters. Batman and Superman for many years have been the building blocks for DC Comics ever since the two comics known as Action Comics #1 and Detective Comics #27 hit the shelves in the late 1930s, with the Caped Crusader debuting after the Man of Steel. The two have been the best team-up (sorry, Robin) in comics since peanut butter and jelly. These two characters also show trust towards one another, even exchanging their weaknesses with one another. But this article isn’t about sharing or any other Secret Santa exchange, it’s about who would win a brawl between the greatest icons of the DC Comics mythology: Batman vs. Superman.
This argument has been argued for over decades of who would win a fight between the two. Throughout the span of comics, Batman and Superman have clashed in comics such as Superman: Red Son and The Dark Knight Falls. When taking a look at our fighters, they both have different techniques. Batman is more of a tactician alongside the foundation of gadgets, while Superman is all brawl and might. Batman is a human, Superman is a Kryptonian, yet the two still stand a close-match against each other… at least that’s what it seems like. Let’s go a bit in depth with this battle.
Superman is a very kind-hearted fellow, which is a vital disadvantage when fighting against opponents because of his strong sense of morality and ethics for all living things, except for robots or drones. Batman on the other hand will keep kicking the shit out of you and will stop at nothing until you’re down, but not dead. So they’re both not fans of killing others, fine with me. They both have their principles, and they both have their advantages and disadvantages, but between a fight against Superman and Batman, the hungriest fighter would be Superman.
Now you’re probably wondering how the hell Superman would beat Batman, since in Superman: Red Son, Batman nearly defeated him and in The Dark Knight Falls, Batman DID defeat him. But when examining over the DC Comics mythology, Superman actually would win in a fight between Batman, not only basing it off of prior knowledge, but off of the knowledge of comics.
You’re also wondering how Batman would lose against a fight to Superman, if Batman has a ring of kryptonite. That ring Superman gave him probably has the littlest piece of kryptonite, and that would never stand a chance against Superman. Many of you are forgetting Superman is one of the most over-powered comic characters in history. Superman is basically used to fighting villains wielding kryptonite. Superman has fought Lex Luthor, Metallo, Kryptonite Man, and Titano, a giant gorilla with kryptonite vision for Christ’s sake! If the majority of these guys are super-powered beings, what makes you think Superman cannot take down Batman?
Many of you are also forgetting your sense of logic towards the situation. Many of you think Kryptonite is as common as the coal Santa puts in the stockings of bad children. Kryptonite is a rare substance and can barely even be found, that’s why Batman has such small amounts of it. Many of you think Batman has tons of Kryptonite, he doesn’t. Even in The Dark Knight Falls, Batman had a scarce amount of Kryptonite to use on Superman and he used with by forging a Kryptonite arrow. A Kryptonite arrow wouldn’t take out Superman; you’d know that if you were to see all the crap Superman has gone through in comics.
Superman has freaking flown through a Red Sun, surrounded by millions of Kryptonite, has survived a volcanic eruption, and has heated the entire Earth with his heat vision. If Batman were to take out a Kryptonite ring, Superman would most likely step away as far as he can, used his microscopic vision to see from far distances, and would’ve zapped the ring with his heat vision. Batman has had his back broken by Bane, a human with venom. What makes you think Batman will not get devastated by Superman?
