"Karate Kid is a master of every known martial art in the 31st century"

"He is classified as a Class 15 fighter (Batman is only Class 12)"

what do you think?

Im pretty sure Karate Kid won over Superboy, but im not 100 % sure on that, and how much of that fight was PIS.

Anyway, Karate Kid stomps Batman, thats a fact.

may be bats would lose in a straight on fist fight but anything else he would kick his ass also i do not think batman would ever let a battle with him reach a point where he himself is about to be defeated he would cheat if need be because he is the Batman and he does whatever it takes to win.

Ohoho. No.

Don't think Batman could be JLA Trinity material if he couldn't beat Karate Kid.

@MasterDetective: This has been done. Pre-crisis Karate Kid was capable of restraining SA Superboy. In a fair fight that isn't full of PIS, Val hands Bruce his butt.

Karate Kid already handed Batman his a**

Batman stalled twice against Karate Kid, but KK is a higher level than any fighter in the DCU. Batman can beat him with cunning, as it has done, or can use some gadgets, but in a h2h without weapons lose.

KK is very powerful, no DC/Marvel character is like KK.

So Batman can beat Bane, Ras' al ghoul and Deathsroke but not a child from the future?

interesting...

You do not understand. KK is not a normal boy of the future. In addition to knowing every existing form of combat, including the martial arts of the future, KK has the super-karate, which allows punches very powerful, able to hit hard even Kryptonians or destroy diamonds and robots.

Batman gave Karate Kid a good fight...twice, this shows conclusively how incredible the skill of Batman in combat. No other fighter in the DCU, has proved to be good enough to block blows and strike KK. Batman did. Not enough?

Regardless, he is a super lame character.

KK is officially recognized as the best fighter in the DCU. Not counting KK, the Encyclopedia of DC does credit to Batman the title of (probably) the best fighter on earth.

Why PIS? The super-karate gave a KK the power.

Karate Kid calls his form of combat "super-karate", so as to fight against Superboy. Even for me, KK is the most absurd and nonsense character there is. Its physical level is not even comparable to that of a peak human.

Which means he has super-powers?

Yes, with the super-karate, KK is able to enhance his punches and his kicks to levels that are beyond the human. To me this makes little sense, but we talk about comics, so ...

When KK fought Batman, KK was able to break easily mask Batman and his suit, which was made of a double layer of kevlar.
