Setting: The Death Star

Why? Batman teleports onto the Death Star in a JLA teleporter malfunction. Darth Vader senses something is amiss and heads towards Batman’s location. And a friend of mine asked how would a fight between these two would go, this makes a fair, balanced and true showdown in my personal opinion.

Batman crouches near an access port trying to hack into the alien yet familiar computer system. The “wall” behind him slides open and Darth Vader strides through. Batman instinctively hurls three mini-batarangs at the intruder. Darth merely raises his hand and blocks the strange objects

“Interesting” Darth hissed

Telekinetic thought Batman as he ran the numbers and variables through his head

“You are fool to come here assassin” snarled Vader unclipping his light sabre

“I’m not an assassin. I’m Batman. I’m not here to fight”

“Perhaps I can find ways to motivate you” the snap-hiss of the red lightsaber ignited

Plasma blade wielded by a telekinetic, Batman sized up his opponent, what’s with the breathing?

“You should not of come here”

“I know” Batman threw a handful of smoke pellets onto the ground filling the room with smoke to cover his actions

Vader raised his hand and threw Batman with the Force against the wall, clearing the smoke

“Parlour tricks are nothing compared to the Dark Side of The Force”

Batman drew his grappling gun and fired it at the Sith Lord. Vader blocked it with the Force and yanked it away from the Dark Knight grasping it in his hand

“You are a fool!” laughed Vader

“Andy Franklin” stated Batman as the gun exploded in Vader’s hand causing him to flinch

“You will die” growled Vader

“Eventually but not today” Batman retorted as he drew two batarangs and assumed a stance

Vader strode forward and swung his weapon trying to decapitate Batman. Batman ducked but was surprised by his speed as the tips of his Bat cowl were sliced off. Batman jammed the batarang into Vader’s knee. Surprisingly sparks and circuitry were revealed by the wound

Telekinetic cybernetic plasma wiel...

Batman’s thoughts were interrupted by another strike trying to cleave him in half. The batarangs fizzled and popped and the lightsaber grazed him down his right forearm. Batman back flipped away to take stock of the situation

“Impressive, but futile” mocked Vader pressing forward swinging his weapon

Batman weaved backwards as the humming blade nearly decapitated him and smashed his fist into Vader’s side, to almost no effect. Vader shoved Batman into the wall with the Force

“What are you?” snarled Batman

“I am Darth Vader! I am the Dark Lord of the Sith! I am the Dark Side of the Force!”

“You talk too much” stated Batman throwing some smoke pellets into Darth’s face

Vader gasped as the smoke permeated into his helmet and into his lungs. Batman smashed his foot into Vader’s chest sending him backwards then set upon him trying to disarm him. Vader gasped, wheezed and stumbled as Batman tried to break the vice like grip. Batman smashed his elbow into Vader’s face cracking his eye socket.

“Get off!” Vader roared in anger throwing Batman off with another Force shove but he used its momentum to roll with the blow.

Vader’s respirator worked over time trying to pump the impurities out of his system. This man could be a great asset if turned to the Dark Side, but he’s far too dangerous he thought

Darth Vader stared at his opponent and advanced swinging his lightsaber. Batman narrowly dodged as the blade sheared off part of his cape and responded with a low sweep kick which barely moved due to Darth’s bionic leg. Another swipe with lightsaber grazed Batman’s cowl melting through the Teflon and lead layerings down to his hair. Batman thrust an uppercut palm strike knocking Darth’s head backwards and snatched the lightsaber out of his grip

“How do you like it?” snapped Batman as he raised the lightsaber and brought it down towards Darth’s hand. Vader linked up with the Force and held Batman’s strike. The two struggled against each other in a battle of wills

“How are you able to resist me!” snarled Vader

“Misspent youth” growled Batman

Vader lashed out and grabbed Batman by the throat and lifted him skyward. Batman jammed the lightsaber through Vader’s arm, but the grip continued

“You are a worthy opponent” seethed Darth Vader “But you are no match for the Dark Side of the Force!”

“You...ain’t seen...nothing” Batman hoisted his knees up and doubled kicked Vader square in the chest. Vader’s fingers left deep grazes in Batman’s throat as he escaped the vice-like grip. Vader slid the lightsaber from his arm

Batman unclipped his thermite grenade from his belt and held it up

“A thermal detonator” stated Vader

He thinks it’s something else “I go, you’re coming with me”

“My connection to the Force will protect me”

Batman and Darth Vader stared menacingly at each other. Seconds felt like hours as they each planned their next move

“Batman?” Oracle’s voice cut through the tension

“Little busy”

“We have a lock on your location”

“Any time”

“Calling reinforcements” mused Vader “Two can play that game”

“If I ever see you again” stated Batman “I’ll end you!” Batman threw the grenade at Vader’s feet as he pixelated green and vanished. Vader flattened the grenade with the Force and lashed out futilely as Batman faded away

“I will find Batman” shouted Darth Vader telepathically “And you will die by my hand”

The words echoed in Batman’s head as he returned the thought

“Get in line!”

Nice fight between these two. Vader would win but this is still a great way to play out the fight.

#33 Posted by Bane_of_sith (2796 posts) - - Show Bio

Cool concept but I must point out that with out the force to protect bats,Vader could crush his heart inside of his chest where he stood with out even a fight. The force is too powerful for many comic characters and without it they cannot protect themselves from its deadly effects It was well written and the pacing was good though. Keep up the good work.

#34 Posted by batkevin74 (11040 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lvenger: Thanks. I tried to keep it balanced. Because they are both at the top of their own respective food chains. Thanks for reading

#35 Posted by tomdickharry1984 (837 posts) - - Show Bio

MEGA Bump coz you asked so nicely batkevin :)

#36 Posted by batkevin74 (11040 posts) - - Show Bio

@Bane_of_sith: Thanks man. But with what you've said, why doesn't Vader do that all the time? He'd just end people like Boba Fett, Han Solo when they fought but he doesn't, which is why Batman is a good match, whilst not a Jedi he's had mystical martial training which could help him. I'm glad you read, commented and liked my effort. Thanks :)

By the way woo hoo to me 1100 views! WOW!!

(Re: Vader and the force) Perhaps Batman had a shower just before and washed the midichlorians off him or maybe just used a can of Lysol to clean up that pesky force ;) Awesome story Kev (now if I could only entice you to an M&M; game)

@Prankster: Thanks, Batman takes down the Dark Lord of the Sith with some Glen 20 and antiseptic :) Soon for M&M when my schedule clears up
