Of all the characters in the DC or Marvel universe, Batman is the one who most consistently punches above his weight. Its something that his fans love and his detractors hate! What we love about Batman is that despite being "only human" he doesn't shy away from anyone or anything. Anyway, I thought I would start an appreciation thread showing examples of some of his battles with more powerful opponents. Please add yours.

Yep, he's mixed it with the best and with surprising results sometimes!!

In the new 52 he was capable of holding the weight of like 2 full grown men with 1 arm.

All his victories against Superman are due to kryptonite, that's not a feat that's poisoning a dude.

Pre-Flashpoint Batman one-shotted Wonder Woman with a blow to the stomach during the early days of the League.

Just like Superman fighting Batman is like going against a handicapped guy.

@rustyroy: Pretty much, yes. Though if we're going with a true scale power difference its like Mike Tyson fighting a handicapped house cat.

Yes and that's why using kryptonite should be not considered as poisoning or cheating.

@rustyroy: I didn't say it was cheating but it actually is poisoning, that's not an opinion that is a factual statement because kryptonite works by giving Superman instant radiation poisoning. But it still isn't really a feat because anyone can do it if they have access to kryptonite.

Definitely bad writing. Probably happens all the time. People punch Wolverine when they should be breaking their hand.

You made it sound like it was unfair, and maybe anyone can do it but a few have one of which is Batman.

A thread like this is useful. People try to downplay Batman saying other characters reguarly beat ppl who are stronger than them, when Batman does this every second issue.

Nice to have it all in one place.

This isn't a celebration, this is a halfhearted pat on the back. I was expecting scan dumps and butthurt, I'm disappointed.

Excellent one I just found were Batman literally threatens the Spectre and that is enough for the spirit of vengeance to leave Gotham.

..I think its funny I started this OP some time ago, when recently I have been arguing with a Batman fan on another thread and some of his strength feats are PIS! Has anyone got any scans from TDKR coz that whole book is about him punching above his weight..

Doesn't matter how you get the job done, a win is a win! Without super-powers how else can he take down DC's most powerful hero?

@bezza: JLA Classified, Starro took over most of the powered JL members because he thought they were the only threat. Batman knowing that his enemies would come at him with super speed messed with the ventilation in the room to drop the temperature. Possessed Wally got in the room only a few second later realizing that he could no longer mover as fast and Batman punched until he regained his senses. Read the dialogue it's actually pretty awesome, one of my favorite Batman moments.
