Batman might not have any superpowers, but he has surely established himself as an icon in the DC universe. He has intelligence, fighting skills and gadgets aplenty. While fans will debate how Batman can fare in battles against DC heroes, there is a fight which people probably have not pictured-the Dark Knight going up against Marvel’s Avengers. Max Landis has thought about this and has explained how Batman will win.
Batman would use a knockout dart on Bruce Banner. This would be before he turns into The Hulk. Iron Man’s suit will be hacked, and after that, The Vision will be taken out with an EMP.
Thor can be taken out by being “Batwing’d into a building and then glued down with the polymer.” He will then KO’ing Black Widow and Hawkeye. And his Batman’s last opponent will be Captain America. Landis admits that this will be a challenge and Batman can defeat him. He then added that Batman fighting the characters would be a fair fight as “he wouldn’t be able to use the city against them as effectively.”
Landis’ conclusion is pretty interesting, and he admitted that Batman is used as a “domineering and intense force of nature” while the Avengers will be better when they are vulnerable. As cunning as the Dark Knight is, it is very hard to believe that can accomplish this while under fire as a non-powered human.
Landis seems to have underestimated Black Widow and Hawkeye. If they are at par with Batman’s skill level is debatable. Tony Stark is as smart as Bruce Wayne, and Steve Rogers is a great strategist.
During the DC vs. Marvel comic book crossover, Batman had been paired against Captain America, and he even won. Batman had teamed up with Daredevil and Spider-Man in separate stories, but these did not have them exchanging fisticuffs.
Since the chances are almost zero that we will see Batman take on the Avengers, this will remain a topic played out in the minds of the fans.
