Does Batman Always Win? Batman vs. Daredevil

The Man Without Fear takes on The Caped Crusader! Gregg speaks his mind on who would be left standing if these two iconic heroes duked it out.

Place your bets because it's time for the hero from Hell's Kitchen to throwdown with Gotham City's protector. We all know Bruce Wayne's resources and brilliant mind makes him a more than formidable character when throwing down against a character he knows, but what if he bumps into someone he has no knowledge of and what if he isn't in Gotham to utilize his resources? That's exactly the point of this monthly segment -- to analyze how The Dark Knight would fare in a random encounter against a character from a different universe. This month, we're having Batman bump into the Man Without Fear: Daredevil.

To make sure the segment is neutral, the matches will always be a random encounter (this means neither has knowledge on the other or prep time) and in a generic, unpopulated city setting at night (NOT Gotham). They'll start roughly 50 feet apart, have their standard gear and they will be in character. Naturally, they have the objective to defeat the other character. Just like over in the Battles Forums, the winner will be declared based on who I think will take the most victories in this scenario if it played out 10 times with these settings. Additionally, it's worth noting that this segment is treating all Pre-New 52 Batman feats as canon (New Earth, of course).

Will Daredevil's agility and reflexes lead him to victory... or will Batman take the win? Read on to find out what I think!

Fighting Skill

Both of these characters have the skill to humiliate a staggering amount of humans in real life. That said, one clearly has more knowledge than the other. Daredevil underwent intense training and has a unique style which draws from boxing, ninjitsu, judo and much more. It's an incredibly effective method, allowing him to hang with (to some degree) talented characters such as Iron Fist, Punisher, Captain America and Taskmaster. Additionally, he has an advanced knowledge on pressure points. This precise set of attacks has reduced Hammerhead to tears, and allowed him to take down powerhouses like Absorbing Man and Mr. Hyde. He might not be a master of every style, but decades of comics with his encounters have proven that his mesh of various styles absolutely works.

While Daredevil has gone toe-to-toe with some of the best Marvel has to offer, I personally do not believe he has what it takes to win a firm majority over some of the more fordmiable characters listed above. In this case, Daredevil is now going against one of the best from the DC universe. Now, Batman clearly isn't the best in hand-to-hand in his world, but the man is a master of 127 different forms and, just like Daredevil, has decades of encounters proving why he's one of the best. It's fair to say Batman knows pretty much everything Murdock does and then some. Batman has more knowledge in this regard, and while both have hugely impressive feats (Matt giving Danny a good fight, Bruce hanging with Lady Shiva), I'm giving Wayne the edge in this regard due to a wealthier amount of knowledge and moves at his disposal. That said, it's by no means a landslide in this regard -- not at all, in fact. I firmly believe Matt absolutely has what it takes to give Bruce an excellent hand-to-hand encounter, just not take the victory most of the time.

Edge: Batman

Equipment/Powers

This boils down to Batman's gear versus Daredevil's radar. As always discussed in this segment, Batman's gear is a ginormous factor. While smoke pellets and batarangs would prove ineffective here, just about everything else can be a game changer if it connects. Electric attacks, cyro pellets, gas... all of these can hinder Murdock and leave him open for a solid strike to the noggin. Although, what could spell particularly big trouble for Marvel's hero is if Batman decides to utilize a sonic device. As you likely know, that's a key weakness for Murdock and using that could drop Matt's defense and then it's game over, man! Game over!

Yes, Batman's cowl and belt is packing tons of tech, but Daredevil's radar is a key factor as well. Not only will it allow him to see through smoke or dance around batarangs with ease, it'll let him keep track of the Dark Knight -- and that's huge if Wayne tries to focus on stealth. As for why Murdock can evade batarangs with ease, it's because his radar has enhanced his senses and the guy has become a regular bullet timer. Not only can he dance around gunfire, he's also swatted away bullets on numerous occasions. His superb agility and reflexes compliment his fighting style very well, making him a tough combatant for almost any street leveler. However, the variety at Batman's disposal is something that cannot be overlooked, especially when one option can almost immediately shutdown the match.

Edge: Batman

Mentality

Look, I think we can be blunt with this one. Matt's certainly an intelligent dude and he's definitely done some out of the box tactics with his enemies (distracting Bullseye with a decoy in DD #181, for example), but he's simply not Bruce's equal when it comes to being a tactician or raw intellect. Batman's often considered the world's greatest detective for a reason, folks.

While I don't acknowledge most crossovers as canon (unless otherwise stated, of course), it is worth noting that after some observation, Batman was able to detect that Daredevil's other senses are heightened base on subtle head movements and his flaring nostrils. Now, I'm not saying that'll happen every time or even most of the time, but in the event the Detective can find that out, it's safe to say he'll test the theory out with a sonic to end their little bout. Both are absolutely smart fighters, but I can say without any reservation that Batman takes it here.

Edge: Batman

Physicals

People tend to underrate The Man Without Fear's physicals because he's outclassed by Captain America in this regard (who is enhanced human, as stated by Brubaker). However, the agile hero is no slouch in this regard. He's swung around a 400 lbs barbell like a bo-staff and even tipped over an occupied limo.

While Batman has superior strength feats (like temporarily holding up a 1,000 lbs wall) and even endurance feats (see 'Knightfall'), it is Daredevil's reflexes which make me inclined to give him the nod in this regard. As stated above in Equipment/Powers, Daredevil's radar means his reflexes are fast enough to block and even deflect bullets. He's done this on plenty of occasions and often at the very last second. This, in combination with his topnotch agility, means I'm cool with giving him a small nod here. Yes, Batman does indeed have him bested in raw strength and endurance (not to mention he has peak human agility/reflexes, too), but it is DD's reflexes that greatly benefit his combat capabilities, after all.

Edge: Daredevil

Verdict

If you've been reading along in the feature, then my answer should be pretty obvious by now. While Daredevil is undoubtedly skilled and could maybe take advantage with a solid ricochet billy club toss or two, I can say with complete confidence that Batman should take a majority in this scenario. It'll be a hand-to-hand brawl worth paying to see, but at the end of the day, Batman is more indeed skilled and has more weaponry at his disposal to turn the tide. In the end, I think Batman wins via knockout 8/10. The Dark Knight takes a heavy majority, but Daredevil definitely goes down swinging and makes it quite entertaining.

Want more Batman battles?

Daredevil was selected due to overwhelming demand to see the character used in this segment. Next month, though, I'm going to be selfish and use a character (or characters) I've wanted to include for quite some time. In the meantime, what do you think of this one? Do you agree or disagree with the outcome? Speak your mind below!

Batman beats Daredevil 8/10?

That's just silly, more like 6/10 would be accurate.

Well, I was gonna post a long and detailed comment how Daredevil MIGHT pull the win (I say "might") but it seems pointless, so many of you guys are bent on believing Batman never loses...so arguing my point is useless.

I will say this, you massively underrate DD's skills...

He beat Wolverine, and I do believe he defeated Iron Fist. As well as stalemated Black Panther...I don't see how Batman outclasses him in skill. If Batman does outclass him in skill, it's by a very tiny margin. That's all I'm saying...and it's not a wide enough margin to say he wins 8/10 I mean c'mon.

Anyways, not looking for a huge argument here. But you guys really underrate DD as far as skills...

Posted by JJ62

I'd say Bruce beats Matt 6/10...to be realistic.

@jj62: bat doesn't out class DD in any thin but wealth I already said as such so did a few others. just before you posted. the only chance bat's has is a sonic device. and pre knowledge to do that. other then I 'm sure those two would be a stale mate.

He one-shotted Wolverine in a fight written by Garth Ennis, a writer who hates Wolverine and regularly humiliates him to fulfill that hate. Apart from that, he's held his own against a brainwashed Wolverine in Enemy of the State. He didn't defeat Iron Fist, and they barely even fought beyond throwing a few friendly punches and complimenting each other's moves. Additionally, the Iron Fist of the 1970's is a radically different animal from the modern Iron Fist ---- who's actually been dismissive of Matt's skills in stories like Shadowland. Daredevil did, however, stalemate Black Panther (though if you ask me, he had the upper hand against T'Challa in that encounter).

K4tz acknowledged that Matt's style has been very effective against skilled fighters, but at the same time, there is virtually no way of arguing that Matt's technical knowledge and experience with respect to H2H combat is the equal of Bruce's. They're worlds apart in that regard. The 8/10 wasn't just because of Bruce's skill; it's also because he's carrying a small arsenal while Daredevil is sporting a pair of billy clubs, and because he's consistently a smarter fighter than Matt is.

I think 7/10 in favor of Batman is a perfectly fair assessment.

@jj62: bat doesn't out class DD in any thin but wealth I already said as such so did a few others. just before you posted. the only chance bat's has is a sonic device. and pre knowledge to do that. other then I 'm sure those two would be a stale mate.

Batman outclasses Daredevil in damn near everything besides agility, and that's not enough for Matt to make up for the other categories.

So because my opinion differs from yours it's "silly?" Interesting, especially since I've more than elaborated on why I think Batman takes a firm majority.

Garth Ennis is absolutely notorious for humiliating Wolverine and the other occasion was when Logan was brainwashed during Enemy of the State. Funny how no one recalls the time Logan put him in a full nelson, though. He gave IF a good fight in the classic era and more recently they had a short bout on a rooftop before realizing they're allies. If Iron Fist is in it to win it, he's going to take that fight eventually. As for Black Panther, he would also defeat Daredevil. We're talking about a character that Cap considers to be at least his equal, after all.

Because of the ratio I'm "underrating" Daredevil? Sure, I guess that's true if you disregard the numerous statements I have in the piece which praise his abilities and say he can indeed give Batman a good fight. Just because I don't think he wins (he's less skilled AND against an impressive arsenal) hardly means I'm downplaying him. Sorry, but there's so much more to this than the ratio. Just because Batman takes a big majority in my eyes doesn't mean he utterly humiliates Murdock in those matches.

but it seems pointless, so many of you guys are bent on believing Batman never loses...so arguing my point is useless.

As for the above, grow up, man. That's like me saying "well, you obviously hate Batman and think he always loses." Clearly false, yes? Just because there's a handful of narrow-minded fanboys out there doesn't mean everyone you chat with is like that.

This is the only part of this article I don't agree with. Punisher doesn't belong there. He isn't as good as the others and Matt regularly destroys him in hand to hand.

Other than that though, great read once again.

You misunderstand my implication there. It's not saying those characters are equals, it's merely saying they are indeed skilled and Daredevil has what it takes to hang with them. In Frank's case, he's flat out humiliated him sometimes, and that's a huge credit to his abilities.

@risingbean said:

@k4tzm4n: I read his retraction...after I quoted his initial thoughts on the matter. I just don't think the loss ratio is quite as lopsided as you make it out to be. I think that on the whole, you have a damned good grasp of these guys, but my gut says you sold Murdock a little short. I think it is in the 6-7 range for Wayne to take it. A minor nitpick but I think short of sonics the numbers are crunched a little wrong.

Good article though, as usual.

Thanks.

The narrative of this feature is becoming that Batman always wins when he has a lot more money or resources than the other guy. Maybe he should join the Green Team. A match against Tony Stark or Reed Richards could prove quite interesting.

Posted by Vance Astro

I feel like everyone is overestimating Daredevil based on the most inconsistent of his feats. Daredevil has alot of decent combat showings, why pick out the ones that give no validity to his actual skill level...I'm only waiting now for someone to bring up the time he beat the Avengers by himself. Also too whomever said DD stalemated Black Panther and beat Iron Fist..neither of those things ever happened. All of his fights with Black Panther are simply unfinished, he's never stalemated to Black Panther and he didn't beat Iron Fist, the one decent fight they had..DD & Iron Fist KO'd each other. THAT was a stalemate. This was also in an issue that came out before I was even born and Iron Fist has gotten way better skillwise and far more powerful than his classic version.

That may just be a product of Diggle's writing. Under mostly every other writer Iron Fist has always acknowledged how skilled Daredevil is.

How anyone says the opposite of this is beyond me. This isn't "who you like more?", it's who would win between Batman & Daredevil.

Must have not read that one. That's a surprising development. Sounds like a case of age before beauty.

Posted by novi_homines

I like the break downs I would just like to see one that doesn't involve Batman like Black Panther vs ? that would be cool.

This would actually make more sense due to Black Panther outclassing Batman in every aspect, which is why he won his matchup against Batman. But part of this is to put the "Batman always win with prep" crap that his fans always tries to say, to the test. Even though rational people know that this just isn't true.

In response to the first part of the topic I dont foresee Batman winning against superheroes like the Flash or Wonder Woman.

Posted by deaditegonzo

1) Wow, some peoples kids. The title that is offending so many people IS ITSELF an insult to the Batman Fanboys that really believe he always wins. Its Tongue in Cheek humor. My goodness.

2) This has always been a tough fight for me, but I acknowledge it is because of bias. DareDevil was one of the first Marvel characters I ever really liked. But seeing it laid out this way, it seems to be a really fair assessment and I agree with it. People seem to be upset in particular over the fighting skills section, however, they are showing their unfamiliarity with the two characters. Batman has always been portrayed as one the top, Elite Martial Arts combatants in the DCU, DD has never been shown to be such in his Universe. There is a significant difference in scale, and the people that dont recognize that arent familiar with Batman. It is the reason he is put up against Cap so much, even though Cap is significantly his physical superior.

3) I somewhat disagree with OP's "Physical" comparison section. I feel like, if anything, you were throwing the DareDevil fans a bone, to give him something. When in all reality, Batman is a bullet dodging, 1000+ Lbs lifting, perfect physical specimen. Basically, I think he is every bit as nimble as DD, and it has been shown by the fact that even Dick couldnt touch him when he was dodging.

Overall though, I think your 8/10 is fair. It leaves room for DD's lucky victories, which is what theyd be.

Also, anybody who is mentioning Characters above street level are missing the point, as the title IS a joke, the point is actually putting him up against people of his tier who could realistically beat him.

Posted by OrangeBat

Batman takes this. 7/10 is pretty generous towards Daredevil, I'd say.

In physical terms, Batman outclasses him. Bats is supposed to be something like peak human, Daredevil is, at most, Olympic athlete level. And no, Daredevil's super-senses do not give him super-human physical attributes. Being able to hear a heart-beat from several blocks away does not make one fast enough to whack a bullet away or dodge Doctor Octopus' tentacles (seriously, that fight was absolute PIS).

Combat skills? Again, Batman is supposed to have mastered something like 150+ martial arts, disciplines, techniques and so on. Daredevil, at most, has been trained by Stick in one discipline.

Intellect? Matt Murdock's smart and reasonably resourceful, but Batman easily outclasses him here.

Arsenal? Daredevil has his billy-clubs. Batman has a military battalion's worth of equipment stashed in his utility belt alone.

And does anyone seriously consider Daredevil defeating Wolverine and Black Panther as anything other than PIS? Both of those would destroy him in ten seconds flat, maybe even less, if written correctly.

Unless, of course, we are talking about the Daredevil that beat Ultron to death with his billy-clubs...

Edited by SoundnFury

Guess who's going to be stupid? This guy.

I would actually put a lot of money on Daredevil getting a few good rounds. That's not to say Batman wouldn't eventually win, but that's a given, they're on completely different stages.

Things working in Matt's favour include his ability to not be surprised. Batman's trained, while Matt's trained and powered. It took one of the world's best mercenary hit men shooting him from a helicopter outside the city to ensure he'd get hit with a sniper round, and even that was grazing (though I think it was deliberate).

But most of all, we have to look at Daredevil's secret weapon and weakness. He's frankly got the most tenuous grip on sanity among the serious heroes of Marvel. He doesn't just go white Templar or flip out and hit a few muggers, when he breaks he breaks hard, and there's little that Bruce can do to prepare for a man who doesn't so much get angry as become a single driving force of wrath and unstable mentality. He brutal, he's broken, and he tends to either be ungodly lily white or unbelievably dark, so eventually Batman would take him down (more constant, and Daredevil has like one trick which Batman could work around)

If any non-meta human or meta human has no special shield against noises, Batman can just use a sonic Batarang and knock out his opponent.

Probably a better tie up would be DD v Green Arrow.

..but Daredevil would give Batman a good fight and people writing off Daredevil as not being able to compete with Batman obviously haven't read much Daredevil. In recent years he has stalemated Cap, who fared well in his own "Batman always wins" blog.

. In the end though, I think Batman's arsenal of gadgets aided by his all round skill gives him the edge he needs to get a majority.

Although blind, the Daredevil's remaining four senses function with high levels of superhuman accuracy and sensitivity, giving him abilities far beyond the limits of a sighted person.

  • Radar Sense - Daredevil's heightened senses allow him to "see" what's around him. His radar sense is similar to echolocation.
  • Super Hearing - Daredevil's hearing functions so well he can hear a person's heartbeat at a distance of over twenty feet, or people whispering on the other side of a standard soundproofed wall.
  • Super Touch - Daredevil's sense of touch is so acute that his fingers can feel the ink on a page allowing him to read by touch. He can also feel minute temperature and pressure changes, including body heat from people standing nearby.
  • Super Smell - Daredevil's sense of smell is so precise that he can focus on a person's smell and follow it through a crowd of people at a distance of 50 feet or gunpowder from a sniper rifle almost 3 blocks away. He also has a great ability to remember smells, so he can identify people by smell alone.
  • Lie Detection - Daredevil can tell whether a person is lying by listening to changes in their heartbeat, or by smelling their sweat when they are under pressure.
  • Agility - Due to the fact that Daredevil's sensory organs have such a high level of development, his inner ear, which controls the equilibrium and motions of the body, is also highly developed, aiding him in acrobatic feats that may surpass even Olympic-level athletes.
  • Tracking - Daredevil's heightened senses make him particularly adept at tracking people. He uses his sense of smell to track their scent and his sense of hearing to discern vocal patterns, heartbeats and gait.

Taken from the Wiki Page.

DD has super-powers, people tend to forget that, which is why although he isn't stronger than peak human, he can give a good fight to stronger than peak human street-levers like Cap and wolverine. That's why I say Batman doesn't stomp.

Posted by RealityWarper

After I have read all arguments here I agree with the fact that Batman Wins against DD.

7 / 10 because DareDevil is used to fight against some ruthless killers and Batman has some morals.

Edited by 106me

Daredevil should win. Batman doesn't have any gear DD can't counter with his senses, and considering that his gear is what gets him by, I can't imagine Bruce overpowering Matt especially with his incredible reflexes and agility.

Sorry, but this is one match Bats won't be winning.
