It would be a vicious fight though, no doubt. Wolverine would be hurting by the end.


I hate to disagree with a lady, but all Bats needs to beat the hairball is a big electromagnet. Batman's smarter than Wolvie, period, and I would lay down money Wolvie'd say something stupid like "You can't break adamantium, bub!"


In a pure bare knuckles, knock'em down brawl, where's Batman going to have the time to find a giant electromagnet?

It's not like they're going to schedule it in advance so Batman can put his thinking cap on and his bank account to work.

Still, I wonder why Reed Richards didn't think about that in "Enemy of the State." SHIELD wouldn't, because they're a bunch of morons, but Richards should have thought of it about twenty times over.

I'm going to add my two cents on Lady Sheridan's behalf.

Adamantane (a real chemical compound, by the way) is diamagnetic, not ferromagnetic. Instead of being attracted to magnets, it's very weakly repelled from them. Magneto can still manipulate Wolverine's Adamantium skeleton, as his mutant power can quite acceptably generate almost unimaginably strong magnetic fields.

Batman, however, would need to invest in a superconducting magnet that would probably be the size of a house. Even if Wolverine was dense enough to walk right into it, it'd require a power plant equivalent to that of a large city to run. Wayne isn't THAT rich, and I doubt even Wolverine is that dense.

Jammy gets chicks, not magnets.

Of course, given the fine plot design of the Batmaniverse, Wolverine would probably accidentally wrap himself in a high-tension line, creating an instant human electromagnet.

But the real Adamantane is not an unbreakable metal (it's a hydrocarbon akin to diamond) either so why would the fictional metal be beholden to it's real life "counterpart" in terms of magnetism?

It has nothing to do with whether or not I like DC over Marvel. I think DC wins in a fight...thats it. I thought long and hard about my decision and I came to this conclusion. My preference for DC is a completely new development...I have been a Marvel guy most of my life. Marvel has my favorite heroes but DC, in my opinion, is writing better stories. So by your logic shouldn't my bias tend towards my favorite heroes...whch are all in the Marvel U?

So hows about we stop making assumptions, ok? :wink:

I can't really see anyone taking down Superman. The man has speed, strength, and heat vision and the Marvel folks aren't exactly educated on his weakness. Plus, the Green Lanterns are a force to be reckoned with.

Someone mentioned that thought that Spidey would kick Batman's ass and I really don't think that is accurate. Spidey is an experienced fighter but he is careless and cocky and that will work against him. If Batman can get him in close it is all over. Spidey's only advantage is if it turns into a long range type fight. Batman has some kick ass hand to hand skills. A better suited match for him would be Daredevil.

I suppose it all comes down to what kind of fight it is. I mean is it just an all out assault? Are we talking individual match-ups? Teams vs. Teams? That might alter my decision. But looking over the rosters my gut leans towards DC.

Batman beats Wolverine hands down...and Adamantium never even plays into it. Here's how (god, I'm such a dork for what I'm about to type)....

1) The fight begins with both heroes "testing" each other. Batman's looking for a weakness and Wolvie doesn't just knife random people anymore.

2) After one (maaaaybe two) punches, Batman feels Wolvie's metal interior and realizes crippling blows are useless. All this time, frustrating Wolverine by dodging punches, flinging around his cape, and basically being dressed like a bat.

3) Noticing Wolverine's growing frustration, he hits him in the face with a semi-harmless flash bomb, throwing Wolverine into a berserker rage.

4) At this point, Batman is caught off guard by his opponent's pure ferociousness and almost goes down. But as he's barely avoiding those claws, Batman sees the flash burns rapidly heal on Wolverine's face...including a scarred eye.

5) Now that Batman knows he's fighting an unbreakable, nigh-invulnerable berserk killer, he makes the lightning quick decision to jab a high-powered tazer needle (like the kind on a projectile tazer gun) through Wolverine's eye and into his brain...shorting Wolverine out long enough for Batman to administer a stronger tranq...call in Superman...whatever he needs to do.

This all takes about 2 minutes.

Now before anyone says "Waaaaait a minute" .... I didn't equip Batman with any tools he wouldn't normally have on his utility belt. No shark repellant spray or anything like that. He wins through simple observation, superior reflexes, and the ability to remain calm as fuck. That's really all there is to it.

Agreed. I think people are continually underestimating Batman's ability to adapt and understand the situation he is in. He is calm and doesn't give into his emotions. Much like Daredevil.

However, your plan is contingent on Batman's ability to call in Superman. If Superman is somewhat preoccupied with, say, a big giant green Hulk...what then?

And what if Wolverine radios for the help of the other X-Men. Now, of course, one might say that Wolverine's ego would prevent him for calling for help, but I don't think its entirely unheard of.

My plan isn't contingent on calling in Superman...I just laid that down as a possible containment option. Bats could also administer a stronger tranquilizer...something strong enough to keep Wolverine sedated for whatever Bats has planned.

The question is, who wins in a fight? That's Batman. What happens after the fight...that has many possibilities. I guess we could factor in the X-Men or the JLA...but then we're talking about a completely different question.

BUT upon further thought...here's how it goes down after the fight. Bats gives Wolverine the stronger tranquilizer...the one he keeps around for guys like Killer Croc or Manbat. He teleports Wolverine to the JLA Watchtower, b/c if anything goes too wrong, he can at least shoot the furry bastard into space. Bats has Firestorm meet him at HQ and analyze, then alter, Wolverine's adamantium skeleton. With Wolverine's "cut through anything" claws neutralized, he's placed in a holding cell until he sobers up.

That's how it ends.

Or Bats could just throw Wolverine into a vat of concentrated acid 'til all that's left is just a shiny adamantium skeleton.

Anyway, I voted DC, since they had the most powerful comic book character ever. Grant Morrison.

He would just reveal to the Marvel guys that they are all just comic book creations and that he could erase them from continuity at his whim.

If there's any other questions I can help you out with, just let me know...

This assumes Bats is going to fight a guy like Wolvie toe-to-toe. He might at first, but once he realizes what he's up against, he'll back off, plan, etc.

Still, I wonder why Reed Richards didn't think about that in "Enemy of the State." SHIELD wouldn't, because they're a bunch of morons, but Richards should have thought of it about twenty times over.


He was too busy trying to work out why his best friend left the country and his wife dumped him.

You're right, Burl. I checked it out and Wolverine's healing factor "renders him immune to most toxins and disease." So I'll assume the tranquilizer wouldn't work on him. But a direct electrical shock to the inside of his brain would put him out long enough for Batman to do whatever he'd do next...even if it's just retreat and do research.

WTF??

OK, Wolvie's in a berserker rage. Claws are OUT! He is beyond peak human in strength and speed. He has a century or more of training in every fighting art there is. He outclasses Batman in that respect.

AND the healing factor. AND the fucking claws.

Batman is dead. D-E-A-D dead. If you assume (as you did at the beginning of the post) that the fighters don't know about each other going into the fight, then Batman is unprepared for the claws. Wolverine, with claws, in a berserker rage, rips Batman to shreds. No contest.

How could it be otherwise?

Adamantium claws versus flesh. That's what it comes down to.

Batman is a highly-skilled fighter, of course, but to assume that he is more highly-skilled than Wolverine is ridiculous. Batman can't beat the damn claws.

Batman is sliced and diced and arranged for sale in the butcher shop. That's all there is to this.

B/C all of Wolverine's fighting skill turns to zilch when he's in a berserker rage. Plus, Wolverine's knuckle-knives get waaaaay too much credit.

Batman has fought...and defeated...Killer Croc on numerous occasions. And Killer Croc is a larger,super-stronger, clawed fighter with a berserker style, invulnerable skin, healing factor, super speed, super senses...oh, and a 170 IQ.

Wolverine doesn't stand a fucking chance.

You're really giving those claws too much credit. If it's the surprise factor that gives Wolverine the victory, then he could beat Batman with a switchblade he keeps hidden in his pocket. Or Batman would die everytime someone pulls a hidden gun on him.

Wolverine is short. He's got short arms. His claws are just glorified reach-extenders. So for Batman, it would be like dodging a normal-sized guy's punches. Eeeeeeeasy.

Maybe you guys should change the title of this thread from DC vs Marvel to Batman vs Wolverine. The amount of effort being put into the debate, you'd think the fate of the universe hinged on it.

My two cents, Batman wins due to the fact that Wolverine has been an overwritten character for years. Sure he can heal quick, fight, and has claws that can cut through anything but he's a brawler, undisciplined, and easily drawn into close quarters. As good a healing factor as Wolvie has I don't think death can be overcome and the fact that driving anything through an eye into one's brain pan can kill most instantly, then stop trying to say, "he'd heal from that and just keep going." Any comic book writer who allowed crap like that to fly is a total moron. Just shoot Wolvie in the eye, shred the brain, and be done with it. Geeze. And yes, I am a Bats fan.

You know, I always thought it would be a better explanation for Wolvie's memory loss to be a result of the fact that the brain doesn't repair itself. So that as a natural consequence, he'd go on living with his body regenerating itself, staying young, but damage to his brain would accumulate...and so gradually over time, he'd forget his earliest memories, and not remember who he was.

Downey knows a thing or two about comics, and he can get downright geeky when discussing them. He prefers Marvel to D.C. comics. He liked Iron Man, "but mainly through his appearance with Avengers." His favorite early heroes, he says, were the relatively obscure Sgt. Rock and Sgt. Fury

The KIller Croc comparisons are stupid. Mainly because Killer Croc is somehow more stupid than Wolverine. And I doubt Killer Croc has ever been torn in half by the Hulk and the two pieces thrown miles apart only for Killer Croc to crawl back to his legs and heal himself.

Not that we will ever see the eventual resolution to that fight between Hulk and Wolverine, but THAT IS WHAT WOULD HAPPEN.

Sorry it doesn't matter what kind of gayass moves Batman would throw at Wolverine, eventually Wolverine would gut him like an overstuffed pig.

When's the last time Wolverine actually gutted anybody that wasn't a flunky? Fighting-wise, he's been neutered b/c writers seem to think it's cooler to have Wolverine recover from nigh-impossible injuries than just win fights.

That's Wolverine's MO. He faces down a real threat, gets his ass handed to him, recovers, then returns to fight again and win....b/c whoever he's up against keeps fighting like they did before. Batman changes his tactics...that's how he wins.

Different chemical composition in the DCU.


Oh okay, then I guess I can say without a doubt that Batman is lethally allergic it adamantium. If he is within 500 miles of any, then he will sneeze so hard that his anus will fly out of his nose and he will die.


Allergic? Where, I ask you, is the fun in that?

How about adamantium being a potent hallucinogenic?

What if Batman gayass move is to ask Wolvie out? We're assuming they'd get into a fistfight, but what if this was the inter-company crossover version of Brokeback?

Ooooh, better question. Who wins in a slap fight? 10-yr-old, nancy boy, James "Wolverine" Howlett (sporting his sleeping gown costume) VS 10-yr-old, prissy boy, Bruce "Batman" Wayne (complete with his cute, widdle tuxedo)....

Place your bets!

My two cents, Batman wins due to the fact that Wolverine has been an overwritten character for years. Sure he can heal quick, fight, and has claws that can cut through anything but he's a brawler, undisciplined, and easily drawn into close quarters. As good a healing factor as Wolvie has I don't think death can be overcome and the fact that driving anything through an eye into one's brain pan can kill most instantly, then stop trying to say, "he'd heal from that and just keep going." Any comic book writer who allowed crap like that to fly is a total moron. Just shoot Wolvie in the eye, shred the brain, and be done with it. Geeze. And yes, I am a Bats fan.


LOL!
