I know that technically they are not Batman if they kill, but I'd love to debate who would have a better effect on the city? Both have League training, both spent years under Bruce's wing and both are willing to do whatever it takes. 
 
Naturally, I'm talking adult versions of both characters. Who would be better for Gotham and why?

Technically Jason.

jason, but Damian would be more interesting. i always imagined frank miller's "All-Star Batman and Robin" to be what Damian would be like if he were batman.

I agree Jason probably has more experience with the whole crime fighting angle, but I know Damian's assassin training would definitely suit a more brutal Batman.

Jason Todd. The villains in Gotham are sadistic, insane, and psychotic. Todd is more skilled than Damian and I believe there was already a comic about Damian being Batman in the future and he said himself he wasn't as good as the other Batman's, so he had to resort to planting traps all around Gotham.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, what???

Jason Todd kills as well. Heck, I'm pretty sure he kills more than Damian.

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek: Oh yeah, definitely! However, I think Damian has the edge over Jason in killing. Not in numbers, but in style. I mean, Damian, from the very first day of his birth, was bred as the 'perfect' killer.

Jason,He's more "Sophisticated".

I really don't like Damian at all, so Jason's the natural choice for me.

I like Jason much, much better than Damien... but I have to say, I feel Damien would be a more effective Batman.

Jason would cleanse Gotham of crime, while Damien would just go on a killing spree.

Jason Todd would be a terrible Batman, IMO. Jason is just not meant for the cowl. Oddly, he seems to have finally accepted that and yet now is when he slaps a bat on his chest.

With Damian, I feel like his becoming Batman is inevitable. Damian and Terry are the future.

Damian,he's meant for the cowl.If the question was"who'd be a better vigilante" then maybe Jason but not here and the OP explicitly stated adult versions.By the time Damian gets to that age he'll be more skilled and adult Damian stated that he was'nt better than Bruce and Dick who last time I checked are better than Jason.Also that statement can be interpreted in different ways,Damian said that he made a vow to never kill and yet he had no problem killing thus not being as good as Bruce & Dick.

Damian. He is the legit heir. The reasoning that Jason has more experienced is ridiculous since the OP was asking about the adult versions. Give Damian another 8 - 10 years and no one would be able to match that experience.

Better for Gotham? I dunno? I feel both characters would cleanse the city, but have most ordinary citizens too afraid to even think about committing a crime.

I like Jason more by far, but Damien's Batman outfit, healing factor, and prep all force me to pick him.

I really liked this one shot with Damian as a future Batman, so I'll be rooting for him.

Out of the two I have to say Damian. I mean, we've seen an adult version of him. He made a deal with the freaking devil so that he'd always be able to defend Gotham. And that was a rough version of the character. After being trained by both Dick and Bruce I think current Damian in a few years will make a fine, but brutal Batman.
