Who Would Win: Superman or Batman?


We’ve got another cool question from reader, Patrick. He asks, “Who would win: Batman or Superman?”

This is an interesting question, and it’s even been covered in several comic books and graphic novels.

Here’s our take:

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 always loses, but he often keeps it a close fight. In one fight, Batman uses thousands of volts of electricity, ultra-sonic soundwaves and Kryptonite weapons.

Fun fact: Batman keeps a sliver of Kryptonite in his utility belt in case Superman ever turns on him.

So, there you have it. We 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.

What do you think?

Have a cool question for us? It doesn’t have to be a “Who Would Win” question. You can ask us anything. Space? Cars? Sports? Whatever you can dream up. Send in your question here:

    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.

        But Darth Vader has the force so he could either crush him before he had a fighting chance and/or just hold him off until he pulled out his light saber out and chopped him in half.

        Hmmm, but Vader Can Force choke Hulk before he gets a chance to even touch Vader

        January 28, 2013 at 12:29 pm #

        Plus, he could hold Hulk off if he jumped at him

        I don’t think a force choke would do much to the hulk. I mean, he can eat bullets!

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

    I think batman would win because he could just get kryptonite and use it on superman

  7. Because Im Batman
    January 26, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    I think Batman would win because he’s Batman. and you cant really argue with that.

    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.

        Hey Cookie,
        Eragon is the lead character from the Inheritance Cycle books. He’s a Dragon Rider, which is a magician-warrior that has great powers and responsibility.
