Is Batman a dark DC superhero? Hell yes. Because of this, and because I think Batman is as awesome as he is badass, I wanted to ask any and all of you Batman fans out there the following question. If there were to be a dark hero or heroine from Marvel Comics who was to team up with Batman and help him take down the criminal scum he constantly faces on the mean streets of Gotham City, who would, in your opinion, be the best choice? Marc Spector AKA Moon Knight? James Howlett/Logan AKA Wolverine? Elektra Natchios? T'Challa AKA Black Panther? Frank Castle AKA Punisher? Natasha Romanov AKA Black Widow? Eddie Brock AKA Venom(he longs to protect the innocent, so I see him as a warped hero, not a villain)? Maria Callasantos AKA Feral(as a mutant powered living being and dark heroine, not depowered or as a corpse, ghost or villainess, of course)? Eric Brooks AKA Blade? Johnny Blaze AKA Ghost Rider? Carl Lucas AKA Luke Cage? Laura Kinney AKA X-23? Melissa Joan Gold AKA Songbird? Or is there another dark hero or heroine from the Marvel Universe you think would be the best one to fight alongside Batman as his partner? Please state your opinions and thoughts, all!

Black Widow is a good choice...as is Elektra.

I would say Black Panther though I think he would beat Batman in a good fight (in my opinion) Moon Knight and I think Daredevil would be a really good team up, though I have always thought Daredevil/Nightwing is an awesome team up.

Daredevil is the only one I can see him getting along with.

Agreed, most of those are a little too bloodthirsty for Bruce.

Though not Panther. And I could see that working.

@jhazzroucher: Punisher, Wolverine, Daredevil, Moon Knight, Electra guys like that they mostly come out at night use stealth are less powerful don't have as much public sanction and are much closer to crossing "the line" aka killing they have a less positive tone and generally have more grimy books like how the current arc of Detective comics centers around cutting peoples faces off.

Storm is to positive powerful and generally to far away from the darker concepts of comics to really apply

Then I'll go for Bloodstorm instead.

@jhazzroucher: I'd go with Storm as well. Just like Bruce, she vowed never to kill, and she has good leadership, hand to hand skills, and with her claustrophobia, dealings with the X-Men, harsh childhood on the streets, I believe she'd understand the psychology enough for Bruce to feel comfortable with her at his side.
