Has there ever been a legitimate Batman vs Superman story arc in the main comics?

Dark Knight Returns is the only thing I can think of.

i think the OP is talking about an actual story line focused on the two fighting. I was kinda hoping the trinity war would be kinda a civil war with batman, wonder woman, and superman on different sides and different heroes on each side (still hoping for that).

I would just really like to see Bats vs Sups story in a few issues of either book.

Stormbox posted a blog post that contains most of the fights Superman and Batman have had over the years in post-Crisis content (both canon and non-canon)

There's no story completely devoted to a fight between them ass far as i know... except for Superman/Batman 78, I've been told. But neither wins in that story

No, and hopefully DC doesnt have a story arc for it. They need to focus on developing Clark and Bruce's relationship in a positive direction. Im sick of all the Batman vs Superman nonsense.

@Eternal19: Couldn't agree more. I love the moody Batman characterization but i think it's time he truly accepted his friendship with Clark.  Would have saved a hell of a lot of hassle in the past. Best moment was when they are both beaten by Metallo and going through the sewers helping each other in (i think) Public Enemies. More of this please!

Hush when Superman was under Poison Ivy's spell.

A mini confrontation in Justice League 1-6

And TDKR.

Batman always wins.
