Who can Batman NOT Beat with Prep Time?
The thread is flawed... Batman with Prep time could take down anyone. Because of the existance of artifacts like the cosmic cube, infinity gems, power batteries...etc. Don't think for a second that if Earth was about to be ate by Big G-man, and Batman knew way ahead of time... then if Reed can do it. Batman can. As for Doomsday, Batman borrows the Mother Box, and a Boom Tube and sends Doomsday into a black hole. Again.. with endless resources, and determination, Batman wins!!
No one, it's the meaning of prep-time. And it's not because it's a God or some immaterial being that it's undefeatable. Prep-time also means finding the right alies and fighting team. I've seen Batman join forces with foes (like the Joker for instance) or use his Bruce Wayne identity to infiltrate or desguise himself or use Kryptonite or a fighting armor or become a Lantern or ... Batman is capable of everything. He even has a contingency plan against all his allies in case. But I think that this as already been sayd.
Technically Batman with
Real time can beat anybody if he has enough prep. He could even beat Trigon if he had the right resources. I can see him learning magic if he knew it was the only way to defeat Trigon.
But he refuse to believe in anything spiritual especially magic.
A lot of people apparently, considering they almost always escape and cause more havoc before/if they ever get caught again. Because he doesn't kill.
Also, Batman, because if batman beats batman than batman couldn't beat batman no matter how much prep he has because batman loses. *Sly smirk*
Emperor Joker--Joker once stole the powers of Mr. Mxyzptlk and became a nearly all-powerful demi-god and used his powers to torture and kill Batman multiple times until Superman finally stopped him.
A lovesick Harley Quinn--in Mad Love, Batman had to trick the Joker into rescuing him from a sticky situation involving some piranha, a tank, and Joker's lovesick girlfriend.
An angry Poison Ivy--had Bruce Wayne at her beckon call with a poison kiss and a sneak attack.
Bane--broke Batman's back, poisoned Batman and the Joker, and forced them to team up to find a cure.
Man of Miracles
Darkseid and Highfather
The Spectre / Eclipso
Mongul (doen't have a weakness like Superman does)
Any other being like Mongul or Superman that does not have an easely exploitable weakness like kryptonite
Any cosmic demon (like Trigun or Neron or Nekron) (Either Constantine or their children beat them)
Any other cosmic being I have forgotten to mention that does not have an easely exploitable weakness (only Constantine can beat them)
So yes Superman is out, lure him into a Red Sun Room of surround him with Kryptonite and you basically win.
Besides all powerfull beings? Reed Richards, Thanos, and Dr. Doom with equal prep time might manage to beat him. Maybe Orphan too, she's got more skills on combat, but we'll have to see where that character goes.
BTW I'd like to see what those people saying Manhattan could beat Batman have to say later this year when he and Flash kick his ass.
Many laugh at the notion of prep time, but it actually holds a lot of merit. Batman has demonstrated that he has the intelligence, skills, and resourcefulness to beat most opponents. Batman has defeated some of the most powerful beings on the planet, many of whom people say Batman would never stand a chance against. If you have a weakness, Batman will find it and use it. He even weakened Darkseid so that his friends could kill him, and when Darkseid tried to kill him, he just got sent back in time and made his way back to the present:
With enough prep time he could beat characters like Beyonder and Mr. Mxyzptlk by finding objects (like infiit stones) that are capable of defeating them. Really, only characters he could never defeat are truly unbeatble, such as: Lucifer, Fulcrum, The Presence and TOAA.
