A debate against two closely matched characters was well done. Close match indeed, but nah, I still say Cyclops. Good job either way.
People underestimate Cyclops. When storm beat him, it was states he was distracted by his wife and newborn, plus latter it was stated that Madelyn was messing with his mind.
Yes, Cyclops is top H2H in the X-Men, he has beaten the team by himself before, plus fought well against Wolverine, and Captain America, which means he should hold his own against Batman.
The deciding factor would be optic blasts vs gadgets, so it will be close, but Cyclops should win 6/10 do to the ricochet shot, something Batman cannot predict.
I originally voted to close to call, but after going over my comics, I have to say Batman loses 6/10 times. A very close fight, but I believe Cyclops takes it. It comes down to the optic blasts.
They're both tactical geniuses, so that is too close to call. Cyclops has been in charge of the X-Men since he was a teen, and X-Factor for some time. Batman lead various variations of the Justice League. They both fight intellectually, so the argument of Batman being smarter doesn't stand that well since tactic smart and quantum physics smart are two different things (Beast is smarter than Cyclops, but can he lead a team to victory? Not the same).
Yes, Batman is one of, if not the, best fighters in DC, but Cykes is no joke either. He held his own against Wolverine, and Captain America. As @opticblast has shown, Cyclops can fight "blind," so anyone saying "all Batman needs to do is remove his visor," really didn't read up on Cyclops; and if you were refering to what Storm did, it was already stated that Madelyn Pryor was manipulating him in that fight (and before that Cyclops was detracted by his new born. I can assume that won't be a factor in this fight).
Cyclops also has spacial awarness, and as shown in various fights, has a ricochete shot. Since this is a random encounter, Batman would not know this, and would more than likely get hit. The blast are concussive, so I believe a blast that can knock out Wolverine, knock the skin off the Hulk (see WWH), and punch a hole in a mountain, can tackle Batman.
Ofcourse , Batman has his gadgets, various gas pellets, electric shocks, etc., which can sway the fight, but that could only account for a handful of victories. Again, very close fight, but I believe Cyclops wins by a hair.
I call bull plop, but its whatever. Ollie should have lost, though it would have been a good fight.
Seriously, I have no problem with Nightcrawler coming back, but afterwards, I hope Wolverine isn't on the team. The man is everywhere. This arc could have easily been in WATXM, seeing how the main cast is from his school, with the exception of Firestar.
This issue was on point. The story is developing at a nice pace without it feeling like its dragging, especially since this is only the second part. The way Supes ended the battle was cool, plus it showed the level of respect everyone has for him: he's Superman, of course he wasn't in his right mind, and everyone saw that.
I'm thinking that those are the teen titans dressed as their adult counterparts. It was mentioned that the teen titans fight back, maybe they figured since the league is "dead," it was their responsibility to carry on the names. Just a thought.
Black Widow would win. Yes, they both have years of experience, but what really swayed my opinion was the fact that Ollie couldn't beat a man who only trained one year in Nanda Parbat. If a man with only a year of non-stop combat training can beat a man who spent 5 non-stop years surviving on an island, than Black Widow has this. Not only is she a combat expert, but I'm pretty sure she has spent more than 5 years doing survival training. Ollie is outclassed in this.
