Before anyone locks this thread, I promise that this one is different.
 
This battle has been made a lot over the course of comicvine history, with people often times shifting the setting in favour of one or the other. But I have recently finished reading Frank Millar's "Daredevil: The Man Without Fear" and his "Batman: Year One" books, and I got to wondering: which one would win from when they first started out? 
 
NOTE: Any feats from outside of these two story arcs are nul and void for this fight.
 
In this scenario both combatants are as they were when they first donned their respective masks. Bruce is armed with only the gear he had when he first started off, as well as his modest experience in real world situations. Matt is armed with Officer Liedowitz's Billy Club and is as he appeared when he was leaving to rescue Mickey from the Larks.
 
Batman is seeking to start making a name for himself in the criminal underworld, so he starts by targetting a dock where a trade is taking place between Russian drug runner's and the local mob boss's men. Several crooked cops are present to make sure that everything goes as planned. What no one knows, though, is that this is the same dock that the Kingpin is using as his base of operations for his child prostitution ring, and thus the same dock that Mickey is being held at and that Matt is making his move on.
 
After Matt sets explosives that he takes off of one of the thugs on the dock and the pier blows up the fireworks start and the rest of the criminal force comes spilling out of the warehouse right as Bruce is making his move. The two vigilantes see each other in the conflict and automatically assume that they are each others enemy, both believing the other is just hired muscle for the mob. After having taken down the underworld forces the two turn on each other.
 
Matt is willing to kill if it means saving Mickey's life. Bruce sees this and prepares himself to do the worst if he must.
 
Who wins?

I think Year 1 bats is even more ridiculous than Miller's DD.

With that whole kicking over a tree thing? Yeah, that was a bit crazy. But the thing to keep in mind is that Bruce was still getting used to the costume at this point, and he was still developing a crime-fighting style. Both of those facts almost let a common thug bring him down.
 
From the way they were depicted in the books, Batman looked physically superior, but Daredevil came off as a better fighter. (Not by much in either account, but enough to make a difference)
 
btw, I was hoping you would see this thread xD I also figured you would be the only one to post in it

How exactly? Because I disagree with the verdict? No, I liked both series and I wanted to know who would win between Frank Millar's renditions of them as they were when they started. People who argued on both sides in the original thread have different things to consider.
 
Now like I said, post an opinion on the fight or go troll somewhere else.

hahahahahah. This thread has really gone down the drain, huh?  
I feel bad... 
 
Ummm in my personal opinion i think that Batman would probly get the win. He has more training and dedacation. But you know thats up for debate.

He posted that comment 3 years ago and only 118-post-count. Unlikely he will respond. I personally think Batman beats Daredevil.

With his utility belt and high class skills I see Batman winning.

Hand to hand I would give it to Matt but I could see it going the other way as well. These two are very evenly matched.

It'd be a good fight but Bruce would take it in hand to hand. Bruce vs Iron Fist with no chi would be a better fight

Batman has created airborne shark repellent spray for use in a shark attack.sharks that live in water.you bet your maternal grandfather that he has prepared for blind guy in red unitard.

When you say "Batman is ready to do what he must" (Paraphrasing), I have to roll my eyes. Batman will not kill. Especially so early on in his career before his resolve has been tested. I have my doubts DareDevil would let it come to that either, so It's kind of irrelevant anyways.

As far as who would win, I honestly can't even guess with any real ammount of confidence. They are so evenly matched that it would have to come down to minute circumstances (battlefield advantages, flinching, etc.). And even then, it's still pretty much too close to call.

#29 Posted by CalebHara (2329 posts) - - Show Bio

I never thought that Batman vs Daredevil would be an amazing match. I always saw Batman coming out on top one way or the other. In this case i would have to say the same thing. Even when they are both inexperienced i still think that Bruce outclasses Matt.

Disagree with the majority, Daredevil wins. Not by much though, you see they are matched in pure skill and physical ability this is fact. So the way I see it, it's Batman vs Batman + a few powers, so it's Daredevil for the hard fought victory.

this is a great fight... daredevil and bruce would be awesome to watch... Bruce in the end is to strong for matt and would eventually take him but their skill is pretty close to each other...

Bruce's gear should probably net him a win.

@iheartzombies92: Batman also has gadgets however. This adds to his supremacy. Batman is essentially a modern day ninja-navy seal crossover.

Daredevil beat electro in his 2nd issue ever. He is a better fighter. And he's more street smart

anyway you look at it, any version, its always going to be bruce.

to me batman is just better, DD is legit but i think DD vs Nightwing is better.

#47 Posted by TheRedEclipse (47 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman wins. I don't even have to explain this.
