Takes place in Tonys office with his Chess board, they both get an hour prep.

Tony Stark stomps him while playing chess with 5 other players.

#3 Posted by RainEffect (3240 posts) - - Show Bio

This is actually very interesting. They are both very hard to get a read on, as Stark is eccentric at best and Bruce is devoid of emotion.
 
I would actually give this to Stark. Bruce is more technical, but Stark can be unpredictable.

Stark is also /far/ less patient than Batman. I see Bruce winning this.

Did not seem to stop him from getting Reed in checkmate on 5 different boards that came as a complete surprise to Reed.

I thought it was 6 but I was just being safe since I could not remember. But since you thought it was only 2, I decided to look it up and show you. It is 6.

There might even be a 7 or 8th off panel game since the rings size would accommodate it.

@Erik: Reed is also a man not known for his patience. How many times has he let 'the thing that should not be!' (TM) loose because he's too busy doing SCIENCE! to slow down for good quality control?

You are right. A man that spends his days pouring over calculations cavemen like us could not even imagine is clearly an impatient man. Please, show me a reference where Reed has displayed what is clear impatience.

@Erik: I stand by my believe that when this happened Reed clearly didn't think it through, 'only way' my foot. I'm not arguing the man is smarter than I'll ever be, I'm just saying the smarts and patience are not always the same.

@Scarbearer:

That is in no way proof that Reed is lacking patience.

I give it to Tony. He's smarter, sorry to piss off all the Batman fanboys. (I'm a fan of Bats, but I try to be realistic)

#16 Posted by Carolina574 (178 posts) - - Show Bio

wayne all day. Tony is all book smarts, no strategy.

#17 Edited by Scarbearer (744 posts) - - Show Bio

@Erik: Perhaps not but, it was still a terrible idea and I've wanted and excuse to use that picture for a very long time :P

Anyway I'll stop getting off topic. While reed is a great scientist, I don't see how Tony beating him at chess is proof enough that he's going to beat Bruce, which is ultimately my (admittedly poorly made) point.

Now come up with some good examples of Tony being a very tactically dastardly mind (like from his time leading S.H.I.E.L.D.) and that might change my mind, but from what I've ready of both, I think smart money would be on batman.

Tony 7/10 games.

#20 Posted by Grim (2081 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman is a tactician. Thats the key factor here. Reed is just a really smart scientist. Stark is a genius inventor. But Batman is the one always thinking 8 moves ahead. Stark can probably upgrade all of batman's best tech. Reed could probably do it too actually. But this is the thing that makes batman such a bastard to deal with. His tactics are top notch. He can read you and figure out what your strategy is, then make yo think he is doing a strategy that is strong against your strategy so you change your strategy... and then when you check him he castles out and checkmates you and you have no idea how the hell that happened.

Bruce.

Hm, we've had an actual chess-feat posted for Tony. Are there any chess-feats for Bruce? Do any of these guys have an official chess ranking?

I could actually see Bruce being more of a Go player myself.

BATMAN hes not smarter just a better thinker

#26 Posted by ChaosBlazer (3930 posts) - - Show Bio

Tony. He could probably invent a machine to defeat Bruce instead, and sit back drinking a martini. But since this is Stark vs Wayne, I would go with Stark anyways.

#27 Posted by Floopay (8721 posts) - - Show Bio

Depends. If there's an open bar, Bruce takes this. If it's just head to head, then I think Tony might take it. It'd be close though.

Thanks for reading,

He thinks in super-computer levels. He'll multitasking 10 moves ahead of Bruce.

Still Stark. Unless I can see a chess feat from Batman that trumps Stark crushing arguably the smartest man on the planet in 6 - 8 simultaneous games of chess without said smartest man even being aware that he is losing, I maintain my position.

The only chess feat I have ever seen from Bruce is him figuring out how Mr. Terrific could play two games against two different opponents at the same time while blindfolded.

Justice League of America 008. Bruce recognized that Mr. Terrific was not actually playing chess at all. Rather, he was playing Hal and Black Canary against one another. I am fairly certain most regular chess players are aware of this type of game but I cannot remember the name for it.

Tony, I've seen a chess feat from him. Even if we take intelligence into play and make it a straight up fight for the smartest man, then Tony still beats Bruce.

#40 Posted by Grim (2081 posts) - - Show Bio

You guys are loosing the truth about Chess. Its not about intelligence. Its about strategy. You can be a complete idiot and still know your way around a chess board.

Tony Stark did not have a strategic bone in his body until right around Civil War. Now all of a sudden he's been a strategist since the Avengers started up? No. Just like in the movies, Stark is all impulse and intelligence. Marvel making him all tactics and leadership was just because they are running out of ideas for the character (which is also why they gave him powers). But thats not him, and even if it is, its only about 5 years of being a tactician.

Batman has been a strategist for decades. he has always been about Tactics. Almost every single battle he has ever won in comics and in the forums against strong opponents has been due to tactics and strategy. Its his entire character.

You put Batman agains Nick Fury or Doom, you got a match. Magneto. Cyclops. Those are strategists. Tony Stark has always been a smart guy living in the moment, not a real Thinker.

Stark would and could distract him. I think a better one would be:

Batman VS Joker (Chess)

...Batman has done amazing tactical things while under hallucinogenic toxins, hes done them against guys like the Joker, and he's done them while distracted by women he has had incredible love and/or lust for.

Nothing in Starks Mental armory is going to distract Batman. It sounds funny to even say that. Distract batman. Its like saying "fly the cheese" or " gnaw on the cloud-fire"...

Surely, this is a joke. Anyone that says Stark is just trying to be eccentric just like him. Wayne is a master tactician. The guy pulls out moves that you would least expect. Wayne would win this one with his eyes closed while taking a piss.
