Who Would Win: Superman or Batman?


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.


  1. Yeah, I mean without kryptonite you can’t beat a bullet proof, flame proof, faster then the speed of sound, super breathing, laser eyed, x-ray eyed, super hearing, super strong, quickly healing, flying, and super smelling (that sounds weird) space alien!

      • Harry Potter Although I have no love for him he was attacked as a baby didn’t die then when he finally was killed he came back to life next time he’ll come back with a white robe and crazy new powers like Gandalf. LOL 😉

    • well actually superman can also be weakened by red sunlight but besides the fact, batman always has a kryptonite ring on him. And in one universe batman can just say the world and a kryptonite force field emits from his suit. Read Superman/Batman issue one new 52 and you’ll know what I mean.

  2. Darth Vader has the force and a lightsaber, but the hulk is almost invincible but can’t really control it. Good question

  3. Batman keeps all the diffrent types of kryptonite in one comic book just in case Superman becomes a threat to the world. Plus Batman would win anyway For one simple reason : Because he’s Batman. They have all kinds adventures in a comic book series that they share Superman/Batman check it out.

  4. Whose your favorite western character? I would have to say Lucas McCain, but the lone ranger is pretty close

  5. batman will always win. batman has kryptonite kryptonite makes superman completely vulnerable and the batman kills him. DEATH.
