@silverrings:

I think Batman's invisibility gives him the edge.

Fair enough, but does he have the power and skill to actually take Ed down? And can he take his hits?

@silverrings:

I think he's got enough striking power to do the job. He's a trained martial artist plus the suit amps his physical stats by 10X.

i agree with godtriggerhulk. Ed might be strong, but not any stronger than a normal human. Sure, he has a metal arm, but i dont think it would affect much.

I think terry beats ed in most aspects (strength, speed, durability), so i think he can win.

Cool fight, though. i would love to see it done

........Terry McGinnis wins just by a aim to the face with a batarang

I feel like Ed is being underestimated somewhat. He's easily fast enough to dodge Batarangs, and his transmutation powers give him a huge edge here. Ed's fight with Greed shows how skilled, inventive and physically capable he is.

Not that Terry is a slouch, of course, he's a very skilful martial artist himself, but he hasn't been training for as long or a hard as Ed has. The suit gives Terry his main advantages, and a lot of them, but i think Ed is more than a challenge for him.

  1. Ed uses alchemy for long range attacks.
  2. Ed uses alchemy for defense.
  3. Terry touches Ed and bye bye suit. Decomposition anyone?

No suit, Terry gets killed.

Ed has to know what the suit is made out of in order to decompose it or this happens.

@tohoma: And he can do it quick just like his fight with greed. But not that it matters, since Terry ain't coming too close.

Terry goes in stealth and he wins.
