You’re right, the Superhero Showdowns arena does rob Batman of his stealth/preparation advantages, but while those advantages do turn him into a whole new animal, it still only gets him so far.
especially considering if you give Batman prep time, his opponent must have an equal amount of prep time.
Because breaking into someone’s house and shooting them in their sleep isn’t exactly a display of skill.
It certainly isn’t something to brag to the Justice League about.
Hell, I could do that.
But you’re also assuming that Superman sleeps in the first place, which he doesn’t, that he wouldn’t hear Batman approaching, which he would, that he couldn’t dodge the bullet after detecting a change in air pressure, which he could, and that a kryptonite bullet would do anything more than piss him off, which it wouldn’t. i’m not even going to acknowledge the “immediate dismemberment”. c’mon son.
it is unfortunate that Batman constantly draws the short stick in these Showdowns, but that’s not what makes Batman Batman; It’s his human factor and limitations that make him such a compelling character.
also, you just reminded me that ages ago i said i’d do an official be-all-end-all showdown between Superman and Batman. Hopefully i’ll do that this weekend
Being stronger, faster, and more durable, Warpath is absolutely a threat to Wolverine. He obviously wouldn’t win every time, but he’s more than a match.
As for Nightcrawler, he may not have enhanced strength, but his agility and reflexes are superhuman. not enhanced human, but bullet-dodging agility on par with Spider-man and Beast. (not to mention the smoke from his teleportation is enough to disorient Wolverine)
It’s not a matter of whether or not he could tag Logan, but whether or not he could kill him by doing so.
Considering he could A) teleport his sword into Wolverine B) teleport Wolverine into an object C) teleport Wolverine 2 miles into the sky(as you stated) or D) teleport away with Wolverine’s head, Kurt seems more than lethal enough.
