ladyjulianos asked: Am I wrong to say that Batman would be victorious in a battle against Spider-Man?
okay.. I can see WHY you and many others would think he would be victorious.
let us first eliminate batman’ greatest power.. PREP TIME! It’s a shoddy plot mechanic.
Any character in the universe could beat any other character if they had unlimited resources, infinite prep time and first strike. It’s nothing to brag about.
and before i get into this I must inform you (and others) that Spider-man is my fave comic book character of all time and Batman is in my top 5. (just in case anyone thinks i am some kind of batman hater)
now that is out of the way.
let me explain you a thing
in a random encounter in like.. a city environment Batman would have absolutely zero chance against spider-man. None. Zip. Nil. Zero. It doesn’t matter if it’s day or night. Or sunny or raining or snowing.
Spider-man outclasses batman in every department. By a lot. Speed, reflexes, agility, strength, power, durability, endurance..
Spider-man could stand there and let batman hit him and all batman would do is break all the bones in his hand/foot/face/whatever he hits him with.
From range batman wouldn’t be able to hit spider-man with anything. He could either shoot any projectiles out of the air or easily avoid them.
Once they get in close it’s game over, man. Batman may be one of the best fighters in comics but it’s not gonna help him in any way against a guy who could dodge dozens of bullets from several goons firing machine guns at point blank range and can lift a two ton elephant like it’s nothing.
oh and spider sense. So no sneak attacks from batman!
Spider-man would beat him with ease. Ridiculous ease. Spider-man would break the bat.
batfans can argue all day… but no. You can say ‘oh batman beat superman/deathstroke/hal Jordan/wonder woman/blah/etc/whatevs’ alllllll day long and it doesn’t matter.
there’s no plot induced stupidity involved here. It’s as realistic as possible.
and even if you wanna give batman some prep time it still wouldn’t make a difference. an hour? not enough time? 2 hours? nope? 5? neah.
this is your captain speaking, AND THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SHOUTING.
