Still Batman got a really good showing

Slade has been weakened due to being younger. He has 2 eyes instead of 1 which he stated previously threw him off his game. And as you mentioned Harley hit him from behind while Slade had Bruce against the wall.

I really don't get how this is a good showing for batman.....Yes Slade was being "outsmarted and outfought" through out the fight but he is hindered right now and batman needed a ton of context in this fight...And he still needed to be saved by Harley...

Imo this means nothing because in this title since he's been deaged he's still pulling off uber feats and beating people like Bronze Tiger. If he can take down Bronze Tiger with no gear but can't put down Batman its a good showing for Bruce.

He's been complaining about his new eye throwing him off for awhile now but its more along the lines of him not being used to having two eyes. Slade is weaker because he's been deaged? Don't make no sense to me in this very issue he picked up a huge slab of stone and hit Batman and then he survived the explosion.

Deathstroke mentioning his mind not functioning fast enough is Tony Daniel yet again failing to realize this new 52 Deathstroke isn't amped with 100% brain cognition. He even lampooned this fact in issue 1 IIRC

Batman did a lot better than you would have expected him to and Harley was throwing Slade off as well with her commentary(I believe she interfered in the fight as well with the hammer)

Still Batman got a really good showing

Batman Family or Batman and the Outsiders

I think DC will make a Justice League or Suicide Squad game to tie into the movies but other than that don't expect Rocksteady to do anymore superhero games after Arkham knight

Several writers integrate Batman into the larger DCU and make sure he takes advantage of being in such a large wide universe filled with so much magic and technology.

Lately Batman has been operating under the philosophy that he can handle any situation. fighting vampires no problem,boom tube the bat family out to apocolips to revive his dead son no problem, handle superman's new archenemy no problem, stop a rogue justice league no problem.

No fear, No doubt just into the fray.

DC seems to be hearkening back to those iconic words from the Nolan trilogy. Its interesting even the upcoming movie Batman v Superman promises a Batman more connected to the comics who won't be held back by realistic human constraints which implies he'll be closer to the current Batman can have no limits mindset setting in from the comics.

Batgod is one thing but being truly prepared and ready for everything is something else entirely.

He's either going to clone himself or become immortal like the Joker is now

Batman obviously allowing any type of prep is deadly

Well if logic is behind it there's nothing else that superman fans can bring up

Batman is the best martial artist in the DCU if he knows some type of super karate ala karate kid in the movie its all over

Wonder Woman hallucinating that she beat Batman is the only way she's getting a win against him now.

I support the premise of the article but the points used to prop it up are flawed better title would be "Batman didn't always win and that was okay"

Pre 52 Batman was clearly not the top dog of the DCU numerous martial artists were above him and he had a lengthy win loss record against them. Deathstroke beating Batman in post crisis continuity is fact but I'd like to point out as of the new 52 Batman is far and away the top dog and most people have every reason to believe he can do the things that fanboys have always said he was capable of.

He's beaten a much stronger Bane

He's beaten the entire Justice League(with little prep time)

He's flawlessly played darkseid like a fiddle and knock him on his ass

He's pretty much done everything a legit Batfanboy would every want him to do at this point.

No Batman doesn't always win but now its become the expected outcome and for good reason

You can tell they lowballed on the animation

probably a cost of hiring those big fancy celebrities to voice the characters
