I mean look I respect Batman's character and his stories and yes with prep he can best some opponents who he'd otherwise would lose to, but recently every thread Batman wins with prep WTH using the tower of babel argument (I read the comic and love batman but him beating Wonder woman or the Green lantern or hell Martian manhunter is pis). Reasons writers did this comic was to illustrate even a human when necessary can overcome obstacles greater than themselves to further attest to batman legend as the greatest detective. The claim batman beats superman is pure pis Metallo himself gets the drop on superman using kryptonite like Batman but the difference is Metallo strength is on a different league than Batman but he still get dealt with by Superman but somehow he can't handle Batman and that frank Miller comic is a perfect example of what I mean pis,either Superman was holding back greatly cause that armor is no where strong enough to handle the likes of Superman. Don't bring how Batman humiliating Darkseid because he trashes even Superman but Batman causes him trouble. My point being yeah he's great at dealing with foes with prep and knowledge but everyone is killing the overestimated prep he can beat anybody, no honestly when some said with prep he can beat Thanos and Apocalypse and that's when it has to stop. Batman get bested by Bane and Joker not saying their not good at planning as Batman but Batman beating everyone is overwhelming greatly. I'm actually surprised no one said he can beat the one above all yet and with 10 years prep or something.

"Recently"?

Anyways I think each founder should have a edge somewhere Batman's is prep, which I don't mind I just wish it was shown in a way that came off as reasonable rather then kryptonite in his pocket that he'd have to take out whereas Superman can move faster then he can respond. Or a yellow lantern ring. I could live with Batman winning it just has to have a plausible reason for it.

Batman is overrated. If Batman got into a battle with any superhuman he would be mopped up quickly and efficiently. His stupidity is now a norm. And everyone believes with prep he's untochable. He's not untouchable. He is a walking contridiction of the very reason he doned the cape. Hell................. GOTHAM IS WORST THAN EVER!

And I guarantee someone reading this will say

But don't get me wrong, I still respect batman.

Because he's batman!

Batman's peak of "overrated" has long since passed. He's now no more overrated than pretty much any comic character that's been in a movie.

This really is quite a shame... Is Batman my favorite hero? Yes. Can he stand up to SOME superhuman challenges, given enough "prep"? Yes. The shameful thing is how the fanboys portray him. The reason I like the character is because I connect with his morals and his challenges on a personal level. But even as my favorite I would not go around saying he could beat Superman or Martian Manhunter willy nilly. As fans of the world's greatest detective sometimes I wish some of my fellow bat fans would use their heads.

I like The Punisher a lot more than Batman. Specifically 'PUNISHER MAX'. It shows a lot more consequences of a person's actions.

I have trouble seeing Batman as overrated when every time I get on comicvine almost all I see are topics named Batman is Overrated, Am I the Only One who finds Batman overrated?, Batman is ridiculously overrated, etc.

Batman is always written to be better and smarter than everyone else. I'm glad that Johns knocked him down a few pegs.

I think you mean people overrate Batman's abilities instead of Batman being overrated.

Why is so hard for people to make this distinction?

@justthatkid: most times superman isnt going hard or trying to fight, or batman is already set up and ready when he arrives. If superman goes all out he would likely win

Abilities wise, no more then any other street level kinda guy.

Character wise, well that up's to most people. trends are trends. And the Batman has been in style since the late eighties *the edgy character boom* and since he's ..well the Batverse is like 1/3 of N52. It sure can seem that way.

@jayc1324: I wouldn't mind Batman legitly winning but having a full fledged plan would be cool, like maybe getting the sun to transmit red solar radiation as great of a story as Tower of Babel and The Dark Knoght Returns is I don't see them as stories which handled a encounter with "Imah take you down" mooded Superman.

It's a trend I've noticed that most of the threads about Batman hating tend to be made by people who:

A) Are new users

B) Have little sentence structure

C) Think this thread hasn't been done a million times

Only two types of people believe Batman can beat anyone.

1. People who don't read comics

2. Batman haters who like to hate on Batman because he can "beat anyone".

I meant people who makes these kinds of threads. Seriously, I've seen multiple versions of this thread all following that basic formula. I'm not saying all people who dislike Batman are like that, but it's something I've picked up on.

Also, you can type how you want, but not having a huge paragraph in all lowercase letters would be appreciated.

@thekillerofgods: Yeah, this isn't really anything new. Like @darling_luna said, this has been going on ever since the late 80s.

It's understandable, though. Bats in DC's top selling character. So in order for him to be able to play a major part in a universe populated with characters like Superman he has to be able to compete with the powerhouses. That's the main reason why I usually prefer the stories that pit Batman against other street-levelers.

Welcome to Comic Vine, anyway.

Wow "Batman is overrated" has officially jumped the shark. It has now surpassed "Aquaman is lame" and "Superman is overpowered" as the most overused superhero criticisms of all-time. I like how people who start threads like these think they're so original. Like no one else in the history of the internet has ever said they think Batman's overrated, yep there aren't multiple threads and posts a day talking about how overrated he is. Hey OP why not make a thread about how much Justin Bieber or Twilight suck it'd be more original than this one. There was a Batman vs Punisher thread and most people were saying Batman won. Of course that enrages people so the everyone who said Batman would win were called fanboys. Because thinking Batman can beat a street level character who he has the edge over in every significant category makes you a fanboy. I guess no matter who he's fighting everyone should just say Batman loses:

Batman vs a kitten? LOLKIttenStomps.

Batman vs Aunt May? Goodbye Batman!

Batman vs a Superman in Stephen Hawkings body? Superman MURDER STOMPS!!11!

And anytime Batman is made to look good he's now BatGod. Dr. Doom could solo the universe and he's so cool and awesome! Batman holds his own against Superman? Clearly PIS the writer is a Batman fanboy who needs to be fired ASAP. This site really is pathetic sometimes, Batman and Captain America are pretty much written the same but the one who's vastly more popular gets vastly more hate. If Batman was a B-Lister he'd be an internet darling like Doom who gets fanwanked PIS writing but gets a pass because casuals don't give a crap about him meaning nerds can't bash him.
