5 days prep
win by submission or ko
This topic is locked from further discussion.
there is literally nothing batman can do to take down SHAZAM. Billy's powers are magic based, so tech doesn't work (other then an atom bomb) and batman can`t harness the magic it would take to de-power Billy(which is of the highest order in the dcu). and now accidentally saying shazam doesn't work anymore. other then sneaking up on Billy before a fight (which is what he would do) batman cant beat shazam. he can beat Billy, but not shazam.
Wut? Unless Bruce is allowed outside help in this case, he has literally nothing in his arsenal to even stand up to someone on Billy's level. His best pieces of armour were barely enough to fight back the Talons and his arsenal was beyond useless against Superman in his early days. Shazam has shown to be hang tough with Clark at this point so Bruce stands little to no chance whatsoever here.
Shazam. I highly doubt it that even the batman can find a way to beat magic in just 5 days and without any help, new 52 batman isnt the batgod who took out the whole jla by himself remember? reboot's taken away quite a big chunk of his plot shield as well, so Shazam stomps
Batman's still Batman, and Shazam's still a ten year old kid on the inside. If this was an ideal "who's stronger" contest, Shazam would win, but then again, he wouldn't have gotten beaten so easily by Superman in that case, either.That's just not how these guys' fights tend to work. Billy wouldn't go straight for blood, and Bruce would outsmart him. Even something as simple as briefly tricking Billy into transforming back would work. Bruce knows that he can't take Billy in a straight fight, so he wouldn't waste his time preparing for a straight fight. He'd spend the 5 days perfecting a plan to outsmart the kid, which he could definitely do.
I think Shazam well win Magic is one thing that Bruce can not really over come without out side help also the new-52 Shazam seem to able to use magic as in shoot lighting, transform other people into magic begin as well and steal money from ATMs ( yea not joking on that part) but at the same time Shazam is a noob in using magic so much of a noob where Black Adam fought even said Shazam does not even know what he doing with his spells. But in the end my money is on Shazam cause I do not see Batman doing any thing that can beat off Shazam unless it while in his Billy form.
New 52 Shazam can control when he want to transform or not transform when he says Shazam if I can I well gladly post scans of the once I learn how but if you want just read Shazam vol. 1 and it explain most of it. And Shazam can use magic now.
Either way, I don't think this is a stomp for either combatant. Especially considering Batman has 5 days of prep. and Billy's morals are on, so his ADD is going to kick in.
It depends on how much plot is going to help Bruce -- if Bruce can somehow outsmart Billy like he did to Doctor Sivanna in Brave & the Bold:
or otherwise through BFR which Batman is very capable of, I'll give it to Bruce.
@aquaman01: This, except Shazam also has no weakness to Kryptonite. Poor Batman, with him it's typically either a curbstomp in his favor or against it.
I know, and the usual trope on how to beat Shazam doesn't work anymore. :)
@aquaman01: A kid with the wisdom of Solomon, despite not exactly demonstrating, half way through the post I then understand where you get that from.
Yeah, while he is a kid, he should be shown to be much more smarter because of the wisdom thing. Example: YJ Marvel was shown as being playful and kid-like, but he was able to get Aqualad control of his team by giving him wisdom. That is what Shazam should be like. Hopefully when we see more of him we can delve more into things like the wisdom and even the speed (I like it where he was as fast as the Flash because his speed is from the God, too bad it was non-cannon I think).
@papinacho: or he could just trick him into changing back to normal and then shazam's done
Bats can't do that. They are fighting, why would Billy deliberately turn himself back into a kid?
