    1. It's not,
    2. Because it was originally designed by English masons on opium, exacerbated by absinthe-fiend local architects.
    3. It's not.

    We need some kind of test. You can catch...

    Hit Girl gone bad vrs Batman.

    That's what is like to see.
  7. Batman meets Dredd and they get to compare helmets

    Tony Stark is intellectually superior.
    But Bruce Wayne has amazing fighting skills, so in a bar brawl without their suits/ tech - Wayne wins.

    Yeah Iron Man would beat the utter crap out of Batman.

    ...until Superman or Silver Surfer comes along.
  9. The Octagon

    The Octagon Stop......Hammertime

    I thought the rule was that if Batman is given time to prepare he beats everyone?

    Avengers movie is due out in 2012, first they're releasing Thor (directed by Kenneth Branagh!) and Captain America, then we get to see how Joss Whedon does when given a proper train set :D

    I'm sure I used to have a Superman vs Batman graphic novel where Batman was wearing a kryptonite suit or something and won.
  11. The Octagon

    The Octagon Stop......Hammertime

    I believe he got The Green Arrow to shoot Supes with a Kryptonite arrow, then wandered down and beat the shit out of him.

  12. The Dark Knight Returns?

    Yes, that was it. Frank Miller.

    andy2002 To the Bat-poles!

    It's in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

    I'm not sure that can be proven.

    Its a given that Tony is a engineering genius but thats the end of his genius.

    Brucie boy is an engineer of lesser but not inconsiderable talent but also has criminal psychology, chemistry, forensic science, toxicology and a slew of other talents to his intelectual bow.

    Batman has a no-killing rule. Iron Man merrily slaughters Taliban in the first film, so I assume he would just launch some sort of Bat-homing missile at the Caped Crusader and turn him into a steaming pile of Bat-offal.
  17. 100% masahiko

    I think you're right here.
    Even on the business side, Wayne Enterprises crosses into more areas like biocides, chemicals, aerospace, technology - Brucie's thinking is certainly more cross-functional.
    Stark Industries is solely in defence and the military.

    And given Brucie's background, eg - seeing his parent's and childhood sweetie's death, he has that psychological edge.

    But Stark still holds the greater advantage...his suit.
    And he has patent/ ownership to that invention.
    If Wayne Enterprises were to copy, he will be sued billions for sure and the running of his Batcave/ Batman will be no more.
    Unless Gotham City decides to commission his exploits - and unemployment/ crime in this disrtict is at a stretch as it is...

    Skeletor would kick the shit out of all of them.
  20. Gromit

    Gromit International Man of Misery

    The latest series of films has Batman down as strongly against killing through either action or inaction.

    They made a big moral point out of it in Dark Knight when he doesn't let the joker fall to his death.

    A great story line but undermined by the death of his ninja mentor Liam Neeson in the first film where the point there was that he had resolved that the death of a nemesis could be allowed for the greater good. I.e. removal of a long term threat to his city.

    i heard somewhere, cant remember where that killer croc may well be in it

    I vaguely remember hearing something of the sort too, but I really don't understand how Killer Croc would fit in with Nolan's previous interpretations - surely far too fantastical?

    Can we not just have Clint Eastwood in the Dark Knight Returns?

    Or Kurt Russell.

    Wonder Woman, not Wonder Girl.

    Hence Ms Hendricks perfectness for the role.
