Who is the better strategist?

#2 Posted by KnightRise (4811 posts) - - Show Bio

People forget Superman has a super-brilliant brain. Batman has better showing, planning-wise. The obvious answer is Batman.

The Batman.

#4 Posted by spidermonkey2099 (634 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman is the better strategist. He makes contingency plans for every scenario as shown in stories such as The Tower of Babel and to a lesser extent The Dark Knight Returns. Superman's no idiot, so he would prove a challenging opponent, but I think Batman would win in the end.

Hrm...I give it to Supes, he can run multiple scenarios in a second if he's really trying.

The Batman would win against Superman in a chess game. He is brilliant and smarter.

#8 Posted by thelastlife0726 (60 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman, no doubt. He's just an all around better strategist. Superman would, however, have an advantege in the multi-platform chess (from Big Bang Theory), because he would be able to use a combination of X-Ray vision and super-fast thinking to view all floors at once to scope out a strategy.

It doesn't matter if Supes is faster, its a chess game, they have all the time in the world.

Batman has proven to be a better strategist, and a brilliant planner. After a long game, Batman would win.

Superman would win, he would have more time to think of a correct plan instead of batman, 60 seconds for superman would be an hour for him.

Batman easily. Being smart in calculating mathematical equations != to strategic planning.

Clark has been shown to be clueless when gauging for certain quirks that people have. Batman on the other hand always notices and exploits these quirks. Strategic planning is about knowing what someone else will do. Not everything can or needs to be calculated.

Superman has shown time and time again he is resistant to the bat-glare, thus nullifying Batman's trump card. With his endurance, Supes can win the staring contest.

Going with Superman since he has a super brain, or whatever. Batman is a better tactician, but in chess it pays to be able to see a lot of moves ahead of time like a computer. So unless Batman is holding some Kryptonite under the table, I see Superman out-thinking him.

Stalemate. Supes breaks the board in half thus destroying the chance for a winner

#29 Posted by FMStyyx (749 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman would win this hands down.. superman batman stories show that batman is the better brain while supes is the brawn.. supes likes to pound things rather than figure out ways to beat them.. (its not until when ever he realizes it that hed start to use his head.. and even then its not that great compared to bats..

can you look urself in the mirror and believe superman who has bats as a partner constantly despite having Zero powers.. has something he doesnt to bring to the table.. bats could take down the whole justice league.. supes would simply pound them.. thats not using his head.. fighting doomsday.. thats hot using ur head until after you die and realize oh maybe i need to think harder.. bats has a better mind

Having a better mind /= being able to win a game on Chess.

The human mind is far more powerful than any super computer in the world, and yet if you downloaded a program onto any modern day home desktop it would be able to perform leagues better than any human chess player in history.

bats has a better mind than superman.. despite his alien increases..

bats brings the brains

supes brings the brawn

in every superman showing hes showed little intellect that compares to bats.. otherwise supes would have perpared for all the justice leaguues with more than if they went evil ill stop them..

bats is a better strategist.. its like playing chess against the joker and hes allowed to hid his pieces. from you and you cant see them.. superman wouldnt beable to figure it out.. and supes' arch enemy is lex.. how does supes beat him everytime.. pounding him.. lex plays chess with supes and supes is allowed to use all rookis and knights.. while lex can only use pawns. and bishops..

I agree with you, I was just putting an argument there to have people think. Superman is stated to have an amazing mind, however all his showings are from raw power. Batman wouldn't have anything to bring to the table without his mind.

Superman's nemesis being Lex is one of the reasons I dislike Superman. It's like telling kids "You don't have to be really intelligent, being able to fly is better". It's like in Harry Potter when they say that Magic > Intellect. What kind of a message is that?

i agree with this message.. lex is a super genius and hates the fact superman is an alien and he protects the people better than any human can (in supermans city of course) and yet he only loses bc superman can pound.. if lex wasnt stupid he could help the world better than trying to kill superman.. im sure bats could kill superman if he had too.. my opinion idk how superman would fight if he and bats were trying to kill eachother..
