I wanted to know which justice league member has the best hand to hand combat skills. Batman? Wonder Woman? Aqua Man?

Batman, by a field.

If old DC is included, Connor Hawke was up there too.

Batman. Wonder Woman would be a close second.

Batman, naturally. I have heard some claims that Diana might be better (Amazon training and all), though I'd still bank on Bats.

Batman's raw skills get emphasized more because he lacks Superpowers. Wonder Women's Amazon training is based on Roman Gladiator training which is less flashy, doesn't use cool kicks and backhands, but the moves she does use are highlighted more because she uses her super powers so the skill is ignored as the moves are not flashy by themselves.

It is funny, if batman punched someone through a window, People would be like "OH SH--!, awesome", if Superman did it people are like "Ha, nice!", if Wonder did it, it is like "oh"!

Without superpowers? Batman clearly. Wonder Woman would only be second. I don't see how Diana mastering one form of martial arts compares to Bruce's 100s of martial arts techniques.

I'd say Wonder Woman then Aquaman I'm not that sure on how much he was trained though, but that's just out of the original team.

Did anyone read the question properly they said no powers and a straight up fight Black Canary Would dominate even the mighty Batman
