If Bruce had a large amount of prep time could he defeat the world's mightiest mortal

#2 Posted by MysteriousUsername (1210 posts) - - Show Bio

It would take an insane amount of prep time and more than a little cheating (getting help or finding some magic bull malarkey)

@kgb725: I don't know, haven't read any Shazam so I'm kinda going based off what I know of Captain Marvel. *Shrug*

The only way Bruce can stand a chance against Shazam, is the only way he has ever stood a chance against the heavy weight characters. PIS

The fact that Billy is so inexperienced makes him vulnerable. Bruce could possibly outsmart him because of that.

Batman couldn't beat Shazam.

I thought you meant Bruce Banner at first.

The Hulk couldn't beat Shazam either. :p

During Teen Titans, while Freddy was in his CM3 form, someone, I can't recall, may have been future Tim Drake. He had a voice system of Freddy Shouting Captain Marvel reverting him back to his normal state. I'm sure Bruce has some contingency plan or it.

ALL BATS NEEDS IS TO RECORD SHAZAM'S VOICE SAYING SHAZAM

Easy win!

@ccraft: Not how that works. The word has to be said by Captain Marvel (recordings don't cut it) and with the conviction of wanting to change. That being said, yeah, I think Batman could take Captain Marvel with the appropriate prep time. I base this on the fact that Batman can take Superman with the appropriate amount of prep time (not here to debate that), so it shouldn't be too much of a problem to deal with one of his counterparts.

EDIT: Maybe saying it 'shouldn't be too much of a problem' is misrepresenting the situation. I don't mean to say that taking down Captain Marvel would be easy for Batman. That would never be the case under any circumstances. I mean that he will have taken down a super of comparable power levels before, so it wouldn't be an impossible feat. It would still be a long, grueling fight.

I would die laughing if Batman did that, and the lightning bolt struck him instead of Shazam!

@end_boss: he doesn't have a weakness that is easy to use against him

#32 Edited by End_Boss (738 posts) - - Show Bio

@kgb725: Every hero has weaknesses. Just because they're not easily used against them doesn't mean that Batman wouldn't be able to take advantage of them with sufficient preparation time. I mean, there's no reason to go into a theoretical play-by-play, but Billy Batson is a kid, and that naivete is both part of his charm and a weakness. Also, there are people Billy Batson, if not his marvelous (HAH) counterpart, care about... if there's one thing the world's greatest detective ought to be able to do, it's find and exploit them.

EDIT: I'm not trying to diss Captain Marvel, by the way. I'm actually a fan. I just think that giving Batman an indeterminate amount of preparation time against a known opponent in his universe is like telling Tony Stark the name and specifications of any given super in the Marvel universe and letting him have his time to tailor a new suit, as it were. You're really stacking the deck against their opponents.

A voice recording of Billy saying Shazam. One shot.
