With the upcoming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releasing in 2016, I’ve gotten lots of questions about who would win in a fight: Batman or Superman? This is a classic comic book hypothetical, but the answer is more complicated than you’d think.
In a fight, or any sort of physical competition, Superman has a decided advantage as a near immortal being with loads of superpowers. In their comic book battles, Batman usually loses, but it’s always a close fight.
How does Batman keep it close? He uses thousands of volts of electricity, ultra-sonic soundwaves and Kryptonite weapons. In fact, Batman keeps a sliver of Kryptonite in his utility belt in case Superman ever turns on him.
So, I give the edge to Superman in any physical altercation with Batman. That said, if the two ever compete in a more mental competition, the edge would likely go to Batman.
