This is Nolan's Batman vs CW Arrow. Bruce is as shown in the picture, Arrow is wearing his standard green outfit. This is strictly a swordfight, therefore both are equipped with a sword as their only weapon (Bruce also has his gauntlets). The fight takes place on the ice where Ra's trained Bruce in Batman Begins and they start 15 feet apart from each other. Win via death or incapacitation. Both are in-character (Arrow is in his season 1 mindset so he is willing to kill). Who wins and why?

Oliver never learned to mind his surroundings.

I don't know why people think that CW Arrow is a better fighter than Nolan Batman..... but they are terribly wrong...

Holy sh!t, Nolan Batman actually wins here for once, and against a CW character no less! A certain user would be creaming their pants right now.

I fail to see how Batman wins against someone who actually beat Ra's Al Ghul in a sword fight. Katana probably beats Nolan Batman as she is, Ra's Al Ghul would just wreck him.

At least one of them didn't die in a sword fight

Not to name names, but honestly I think arrow is good, but bats has shown to be able to keep up In that area

Environment + Gauntlets favor Nolan B here.

@thehunter: Batman beat Ra's in a straight up sword fight. Ra's just used the environment against him. If they weren't on ice Batman could have killed/beat him. But they aren't even the same Ra's so...

Obviously Batman. Ra's Al Ghul trained him to watch his surroundings. Batman would not make the same mistake twice, so Oliver couldn't break the ice underneath him. In fact, Bruce would probably just do that same thing to Arrow. Bruce almost beat Ra's, had it not have been for that trick he would have. SPOILER: Oliver loses to Ra's in a swordfight in one of the later Arrow seasons, I can't remember which. Good match though.

Nolan B did not beat Ra's on ice. He was getting owned the first few times, and then he won the last attempt (if we're forgoing the trick).

On land Sword-Against-Sword Ra's still would have won, but it would have been in a closer bout methinks.

After doing well against Ra's and then stomping Merlyn, I'll go with Oliver.

who cares about nolan batman barely beating a sparring nolan ra's? nolan ra's was in control of the situation and he knew it. and in their rematch batman relied on the suit.

oliver straight up killed a much older, tougher, immortal ra's, and underwent his training initially in swordsmanship under slade.

Oliver has much better feats. Nolan Bats had a pretty difficult time against even Joker.

Batman. He was trained by the League of Shadows. Their primary weapon was the sword. Oliver was stranded on an island for several years but mainly learned how to use a bow and arrow. Batman was trained by Ra's Al Ghul, who has centuries of experience. (He's immortal) If not centuries, decades.

"The Austrian madman is intoxicated with his successes in North Africa and thus he agreed with our suggestion that he invade Russia. It will be folly, and he will fail as the Frenchman before him failed. The war will end soon. Not this year, certainly, nor the next, but soon, and when it does, Hitler will suffer defeat...

...Last night, the woman who is my current consort gave birth to a female. I am a methodical man and I keep records. Thus, I know that I have now sired four hundred and fourteen children, all of them except two female."

Nolan Ra's is confirmed as immortal.

Probably Bruce, Oliver was still getting dominated for most of the fight when he beat Ra's. Hard to tell though.
