StudentoftheReptile said:Batman is a master strategist. He has outmatched and outsmarted many opponents who were super-powered (while he himself is merely human...despite simply having an extended lifespen due to a dip in one of Ra's a Ghul's Lazarus pits).
Superman even entrusted him with a Kryptonite ring for the exact purpose of defeating him [Superman] in case he wasn't himself (something Batman has done more than once). He fought Darkseid to a draw, and outwitted him. Even took on an army of cloned Doomsdays with only a battleaxe.
To answer the original question, Batman is better equipped to fight bad guys.
CourtneyAndCarl said:Yes, BUT if Superman didn't give him taht Kryptonite ring, Batman wouldn't have stood a chance against him.
StudentoftheReptile said:Superman has two flaws: occasionally flying (literally) into the situation with overconfidence before evaluating all factors, and being a little bit too much of a boy scout and "politically-correct."
CourtneyAndCarl said:I would have to agree. I have a huge debate going on at work, actually, between me and a huge batman fan... It's more of an Ironman vs. Batman thing though (Ironman would win, by the way.... )

Yeeeeah, but Ironman is Marvel and Batman is DC, so it would just not happen, right? Different timeframes, or planets or something, if I understand it right. I'm admittedly not up to date on comic book heroes, and know very little in detail about Superman. Ironman and Batman would be a better match, as they're essentially both "human."
StudentoftheReptile said:Batman is TOTALLY smarter than Ironman. I do agree it would be an even match, but Stark is a tad more cocky and arrogant for his own good. Batman would be a mere few seconds ahead of him, and that's all he would need.
