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.
