The Age Old Batman vs. Superman Debate

I know what you’re thinking: “This idiot is on his second blog post and he is going to try to tackle Batman vs. Superman?”  Well guess what…this idiot absolutely is.  I’m controversial by nature.  Let’s do this.

The question among many-a-nerd is this: Who would win in a fight? Batman or Superman?  People are so divided on this that I actually think we should get Christian Bale and Christopher Reeve together to settle the debate once and for all…Dig him up!!

Some people may say it should be a fight until the other person gives up, and that’s a bunch of crap.  Do you really think Batman or Superman would ever give up in a fight?  Look at these guys:



Can you imagine trying to break up that fight?  I don’t think so.

The truest test is a fight to the death.  That is the only real way to know who would win.  With that said, let’s take a look at our challengers.


Very very cool, both as Bruce Wayne and as Batman.  Batman is certainly the pick for the under 30 crowd.  The masculinity and awesomeness of George Clooney really won them over.  The mask is a smart move (you be careful. People in masks cannot be trusted (sweet PB quote (look it up))).  The helmet section protects his head and he has a sweet suit that is made out of some sort of kevlar material (I realize I’m out of my element here, but stick with me).

The belt!  This is the thing that all Batman proponents bring up.  The utility belt does come with some great features.  For a full description, click here.  I must warn you, I fell asleep from the nerdum I was reading.

Lastly, Batman is tough.  He’s gritty.  He is not a quitter.  He is also human and that may come back to bite him in this battle with ol’ Superman.


A giant nerd as Clark Kent (literally a giant.  How anyone in the DC Comics universe cannot see that Clark Kent is Superman is just baffling).  Superman seems to be the pick for the over 30 crowd.  I think it’s because they have seen more Superman movies and really know what Superman is capable of (these people have been around the block when it comes to Superman knowledge).

Let me rattle off a few Superman features for you:  lasers coming out of his eyes, a body that cannot be harmed in any way (except one, which we will get to in a second), he can fly, he is faster than a speeding bullet.  He basically has no earthly limitations to what he can do.

Now, let’s get this “super important” argument out of the way: kryptonite.  Yes, Superman’s one weakness.  This is the only argument that can be made in support of Batman.

It’s About to Get Real

Listen, I am not in the blogging business just to become rich and famous.  I do this to educate and to drop knowledge and, most importantly, keep it real.

Although Batman is awesome and probably cooler, you have to take Superman in a fight to the death.  Just take a deep breath and accept the truth.  

I know what you’re thinking, “But what about the kryptonite!!??” Let me answer your question with another question, who brings kryptonite to a fight?  The answer is obviously nobody.  Technically, Batman shouldn’t even be allowed to bring his fancy belt to the fight.  Superman could just bring a gun and blow Batman’s brains out.

You see, in a fair fight it needs to be man against man (or in this case, man against Kryptonian).  If that’s the case, you would be silly to choose Batman.  Superman is just too overwhelming.

Life Lesson

Bats may bite you and make you really strong, but you will still be no match for the invincible Kryptonian.  Write that down.
