1. Either BatMan or Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective. Sherlock lived in a time where forensic methods were very limited, and yet he still deduced the truth behind the most convoluted situations. BatMan, however, has accomplished very similar feats in conclusive capability and should be on par with him. As to who is superior between the two, I could not decide. I have read several Sherlock works by Doyle and several BatMan works from DC, and the difficulty in comparing the two is the resources available. That said, it would appear that Sherlock surpasses him, given the fact that he had fewer resources, but understanding the scales on which BatMan has solved crimes, he may have the advantage also. Difficult choice, in my opinion. 
2. BatMan.

I think this goes back to your first argument on whom is the better detective. Sherlock's era was limited in resources, and yet through observing and deduction alone, he was able to solve crimes that would stump todays best detectives. Batman, too, is a genius and brilliant in his own right. But Batman would be much less of a character without his gadgets. And also, Batman utilizes interrogation to find leads as well. Another method that differs and also sets him in a different group from Sherlock.

Sherlock did question suspects though. He just did not initiate brutal interrogations the way BatMan does. BatMan has proven though to work without large amounts of resources. He has managed to uncover the answers in cases without the use of various forensic equipment. So that point actually can be argued.

I wasn't saying it couldn't be argued. I was providing an argument. Either way, Batman or Sherlock takes the first "battle" in my opinion.

I think the difference between Sherlock and Batman is Batman's looking for the answers while Sherlock just want's the questions.

It does, doesn't it? 
 
I think what I was trying to say is Batman tries to solve the case (who,how and why) while Sherlock tries to find why it was done, cause he's already solved the who and how.

Rorschach, Batman, Sherlock, and Vic. That is the most logical Answer

1. If its without resources(meaning no high tech stuff), then its really a tie between Rorschach, Vic, Spirit and Sherlock, I feel as if Batman relies too heavily on his super computers and what not. If its with resources however, then Batman cause he can afford all this high tech stuff to help him whereas the other 4 can't. 
 
2. Being that they are the same person, though with very few differences. Gonna have to just go both Vic/Rorschach 
 
Also awesome picture.

Also that picture shows that suits look more boss then Batman's outfit. Sorry Bats, your outfit is cool and all, but those guys suits are just awesome not to mention they don't rely on fancy gadgets. In fact....*goes to make thread, stealing the picture*

Even though Batman is the World's Greatest Detective, Sherlock Holmes is on another level. The things he deduces from just pure observation is amazing.
