Pre 52 Batman has one week prep.

Namor is fully hydrated.

Namor

Batman wins.

Batman, especially when granted prep. If Captain America can down Namor twice without preparation (and a Namor clone once), I'm pretty sure Bats can when granted time to study his prey.

Batman via prep. Otherwise he stands no chance.

Even with prep he's still not downing Namor. He one shots Bruce in defense of his ego.

Iron Man once used a sewage waste pump to pollute Namor and knock him out....

Namor was once one-shotted by a single shield throw from Cap.

He has a weakness to pollution and can be dehydrated. Things which people have done mid battle. To say he has no weakness to exploit is untrue.

Cap shouldn't be able to KO Namor in a single hit. I know he's had some previous fights with Namor, but there were context around them for the most part. Namor would kill Cap if he very well pleased and has had more than enough showings to suggest Cap couldn't hurt him if he tried unless severely dehydrated.

@god_spawn: never knew about the weakness to pollution and i thought when the op said namor was fully hydrated they meant for the entire fight.

@veshark: i doubt they will be near a sewage waste pump.

either namor was extremely dehydrated during that fight or thats just bad writing. namor has been more consistently shown to be able to fight with hulk, herc and thing and have a good showing during those fights.

Too much prep for Bats
not fair for namor

@god_spawn It was a surprise throw of the shield, so I believe it was either a lucky hit or it struck a pressure point of some sort. Whatever the case, I didn't mean that was how Batman would take Namor down - I was merely pointing out that the assumption that Namor has no weaknesses is ridiculous, as past Namor showings have depicted.

@norrinboltagonprime21 You forget that Batman is given prep. Prep entails having prior intel on your opponent, so it's not that much of a stretch that Batman can figure out some way to use Namor's weaknesses to his benefit - it doesn't necessarily have to have a 'sewage pump' involved.

And Namor wasn't dehydrated, and neither was that bad writing - it was just that his usual arrogance gave Stark a small enough window to outthink him. The key word there is outthink - not outfight, unlike the battles you've mentioned.

I don't known why anyone is backing Namor....I guess you all missed the 7 days of prep that batman has...guess it all just flew over the head...anyway, Batman has a variety of gadgets, suits, vehicles and no restrictions or limitations on the methods of which he can win.....his options are endless. Batman stomps.

Batman due to prep.
