Best Fighters: Batman vs. Captain America!

Jondee here at the Batcave,

It’s a Civil War between two of the best fighters (normal human)!

DC – Batman – Bruce Wayne, the Dark Night Detective first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (1939) created by Bob Kane, Bruce was a young boy when his parents were killed, he devoted himself to studying criminology for four years and training to fight crime in Gotham City, he was a part of the Justice League of America from it’s first appearance in Brave and Bold #28 (1960). Ben Affleck portrayed Batman in Suicide Squad (2016).

Marvel – Captain America – Steve Rogers, the incredible team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby created Cap in Captain America #1 (1941), 4F Steve Rogers was injected with the Super Soldier formula in WW2, the peak of human strength and a several lifetimes of fighting ability, he is frozen until discovered by the Avengers, and eventually becomes the leader of the Avengers. Cap has returned with Sam Wilson and Roberta Mendez also Captain America. Captain America is of course played by Chris Evans in Captain America: Civil War (2016).

The battle would be worthy of a bookshelf one-shot. Cap is at peak physical fitness, he does not have to work out because of the Super Soldier formula, but still does so to keep at optimal shape. Rogers also spars frequently with other opponents so his fighting skills are kept razor sharp. He has a lifetime of fighting, of course Thor and Wonder Woman would be superior in applying experience to combat. Batman would have to work out twelve hours a day to be at Cap’s level and then he would have to spar twelve hours a day for years, not just fight crime (I’ve never seen Batman spar, look at MMA fighters and boxers, they spar and exercise to prepare for their fights) to able to match Captain America. Marvel vs. DC #3 (1996) by Ron Marz, Dan Jurgens, and Claudio Castellini had the two fighting for hours until Cap misses throwing his shield(!?!) and Batman’s batarang hits his head(?!?). Sorry, again Cap is at the height of human prowess, Batman would have to be non-human to match him, a Thor or Superman. So he would not get tired and not miss, look at Captain America: Civil War, he is battered by Iron Man and exhausted says, “I can do this all day.” In Avengers/JLA #2 (2003) by Kurt Busiek and George Perez, Batman and Captain America start off a series of moves matched by each other. It is not a full fight (one page and a panel!) as they are assessing each other, but Batman says at the end, “It’s conceivable you could beat me, Avenger. But it would take you a very long time.” Captain America wins and his mother’s name is Sarah not Martha.
