Read Justice League: Tower of Babel. Batman has ways of defeating the ENTIRE JUSTICE LEAGUE single-handed! And some villains find these plans and use them to bring all the super heroes to their knees. Basically confirmed to me that Bats is the king (he's always been my favorite hero but seeing his plans used to almost kill everyone was crazy)!
It was just good, it could have been better. But if you enjoy animated Justice League in general, it's definitely worth watching. Especially when they brought back the original voices for Superman, Batman, wonder Woman, Flash, and J'onn.
For me, it is the OP that annoys me about Superman. I can't get emotionally attached to a character who is 'perfect'. Yes, he has his issues, he even reveals some of them to Darkseid. But he's all around just too "look at me, I cannot be harmed". In gamer terms, Sups has "GOD-MODE ON" engaged. Cheap, and after a while obnoxious. Batman at least gets his ass entirely handed to him multiple times, but he comes back.
Still, the most OP of all is giving a green lantern ring to the m-f-ing Batman heheh.
Well, mine is just a modest opinion, but I Bats surely is my favourite. He's just a friggin' human, but he still is equal to other super-powered heroes. That is more than enough for me. If Bats had superpowers, he would pwn everyone and everything
Superman could kill Batman from a 100 lightyears away. He could go back in time and kill Batman's mom. If Superman was fighting all out, nobody, not even the entire JLA could stop him. The Frank Miller Stories ARE NOT CANON, and he's idiot anyway. Also, Kryptonite doesnt affect Supes the way you seem to believe it does. He was on a FEILD of kryptonite and was still capable of fighting Bizzaro, Metallo, and one other AList villain. He flew through a field of Kryptonite, AND THEN A RED SUN and still survived a fist fight with SUperboy Prime. Batman = most overrated character this side of Wolverine.
Superman could do all that stuff, but he has a "no killing" policy. Superman was even subtly holding back in this fight, while Batman never holds back. Sure, Bats won't kill either, but he'll fight dirty to win. Also, calm down, don't get so angry about it
Fair enough. The point is, Batman is more popular and a lot of people hate Supes because he's a boyscout and basically OP. But "He's so much cooler" =/= sound logic. So, I am calmed. Still think Batman is overrated and has come out winning many a time due to CIS (character induced stupidity).
Supes gets mind controlled by Poison Ivy, Bats uses his wits and know-how to stall/avoid/pwn him til it wears off. He basically flat out survives, nobody really wins but surviving the ordeal is note-worthy. It took place in the Batman: Hush storyline, specifically Batman #612
I remember a story where Batman was possesed and was covered in what seems to be kryptonite paint, and Superman stopped him thanks to a pressure point technique.
Also in Superman: King of the World, he actually kills Batman
It all depends on the situation and who's written really.
The reason Batman was beating Sups in DKR, was because he made up a damn good plan, attack Sups after the whole Nuke issue, wear powergloves, and have Green Arrow fire a Kryptonite arrow when it seems you're losing. It's all about the planning, oh and Batsy got martial art skills too.
But again, I see both characters as equals (Sups is still my favorite though)
True, but Superman doesn't seem to be able to think of that in the heat of the moment. Thus, it is invalid. Superman should, by all means, be able to utterly destroy Batman without breaking a sweat, but the point is that he can't.
