Another one of my battle tournaments! :D Yes, we're back. Now, this one is a bit different from my previous tournaments. Before, I would take 32 people from one company and have them battle out to become World champion (Silver Surfer from Marvel and Dr. Fate from DC), Women's Champion (Invisible Woman from Marvel, Power Girl from DC), and Tag Team (Hulk & Dr. Doom from Marvel, Wonder Girl & Zoom from DC). This time, there's too many Batmans running around! I take 32 different versions of Batman, and they battle it out to determine who the greatest one is.

Here is how the tournament works (for those who don't know):

  • I post two people to fight.
  • Viners come in and vote for who they think wins.
  • The first person to get 5 votes wins.
  • When I am not available, will be in charge since he knows the battles.

Now, here are the rules for EVERYONE in the tournament:

  • Morals off.
  • No prep time.
  • All battles take place on an abandoned Earth.

Remember, this is a battle tournament. NOT a popularity tournament.

Now, let's start:

Batman (Adam West)
Batman (Adam West)

VS

Batman (Nolanverse)
Batman (Nolanverse)

Now, I HATE to do this with how awesome The Dark Knight Rises was, but I vote Adam West Batman for the win.

It's not a popularity tournament. It's who would win in a fight.

I have to go with Adam West, he probably has an anti-Batman (Nolanverse) spray in his utility belt :P

Anyway, I'll vote for Nolan's Batman here. I don't really know that much about Adam West, but it seems to me that he has worse gear by the looks of him in that pic.

He actually has better gear. He has EVERYTHING in his utility belt for ANY situation. Even Shark Repellent Spray. But I'll coutn your Nolan vote.

4-2 Adam West, One more and he wins.

Adam has shown to have better prep in his belt. He always appears to have everything he could possibly need. He has also shown to fight as he has never lost a fight in unarmed combat. He had defeated, Joker, Ridder, King Tut, Egghead, and a host of other villains. He also seems to be calmer and tends to take battles with more positive attitude not allowing his anger to cloud his judgement.

Adam West Batman may not be the coolest fighter and be tongue and cheek but he has more feats of having more fights and having better gear with a lack of flying machine.

sure. That means Adam West wins. Next:

Batman (Post-Crisis)

VS

Batman (The Dark Knight Returns Animated)
Batman (The Dark Knight Returns Animated)

I vote Post-Crisis. He's in better shape, is active, and has better feats. So 1-0.

Post-Crisis wins. Next:

Owlman
Owlman

VS

Colonel Bruce Wayne (Amalgam Universe)
Colonel Bruce Wayne (Amalgam Universe)

For those of you who are unaware, the Amalgam Universe is where Marvel and DC characters were combined to create one character. Batman was combined twice, and this is one of them. Colonel Bruce Wayne, an Amalgamation of Nich Fury and Batman. Director of SHIELD.

I don't know much about Owlman, so I won't vote.

Really? Superfriends Batman is that bad a fighter? You'd figure there'd be a lot of PIS.

@JLDoom: It's fine. I was online, though kept getting tied up and every time I went to upload it, the pics wouldn't go and I'd get tied up again.

Batman in Flashpoint was pretty old, so I vote for The Batman 1-0
