Batman could beat Wolverine
Debate Rounds (3)
I struggle to see how Batman prevails in any way possible.
I believe that Batman's intellect and ability to adapt to his environment and opponent will be a primary reason for his victory. Batman is undeniably one of the greatest tacticians of all time. He has defeated many opponents who I would argue as being much more powerful than Wolverine. These foes include Superman, Bane, and Darkseid. He also defeated Slade Wilson, A.K.A. Deathstoke, who possesses very similar regenerative abilities to Wolverine.
Batman doesn't kill, at least not in recent renditions, so he doesn't need to kill his opponent in order to beat them. Batman has pushed the limit of the human body, so he I would argue that he is physically stronger than Wolverine. This in mind, Batman could find a way to restrain Wolverine.
Batman's other great ally is his stealth. Batman wouldn't find himself in a situation he can't get out of. If he started losing the upper hand, I believe in his capabilities to evade Wolverine and recuperate. Batman's arsenal of gadgets would also play a major hand in his victory. While stun batarangs and other weapons would have a reduced effect on Wolverine, they would still work to slow his attacks.
I believe that Wolverines regenerative and healing abilities will be the main deciding factor through out this battle, on top of the fact that his close-combat fighting skills and adamantium claws would be quite a bit for an unprepared Batman. Wolverine has beaten the likes of The Hulk and The Phoenix Force after suffering near-death beatings.
Wolverine has no problem with killing so, whilst Batman would be restricted to certain tactics in the fight, the Wolverine would have a limitless free will to impose all of the damage required.
The Wolverine has super-human animal like senses that include smell. I think this would cancel out Batman's stealth feature. The Wolverine is a savage so as soon as Batman falls weak or he smells blood, survival would almost be out of the question. There's only so much a wounded Batman can do. Though it is obvious Batman has skills, how does the Batman restrain the Wolverine in a battle like this?
I don't know that it would be entirely fair to bring the Batmobile into the equation, but it is perfectly reasonable to assume Batman would have it at the ready if he was caught unprepared. Having a virtual tank at his back would give him a massive advantage over Wolverine. In Batman #655, Bruce Wayne is seen benching well over 1000 pounds. This is a bit ridiculous, but it is in a canon comic so Batman would likely be able to hold his own in a grapple with Wolverine. Wolvverine is known as a berserker. Batman has fought many 'berserker' type enemies before and overcome foes like Clayface, who has super strength and is nearly indestructible.
