Batman is Better than Iron Man
Debate Rounds (4)
1. Batman can defeat Superman with ONE punch with Kryptonite Ring.
2. Batman has only ONE enemy who knows his real identity.
3. Batman is very sneaky in the dark.
4. He doesn't need 50 suits of armor for a fight.
5. Finally, he doesn't need a special group of security to tell him something is wrong in a city.
If anybody actually thinks Iron Man is better, prepare for a fight
2; Except that's stupid, since it's really obvious who Batman is. Sides, Tony has only one enemy with the nerve to attack him at his home.
3; Iron Man 3 showed Tony can be sneaky in light and dark.
4; Batman needs his utility belt to fight properly. As well as the Batmobile and the Batwing and two sidekicks, one of which he keeps losing.
5; Everyone knows Gotham's a crime ridden city. In the films, it's almost been destroyed thrice. In the games, the entire population seems to be goons. (arkham origins) Not sure about the comics crime density, but
a; It's really apparent anyway
b; Batman isn't lowering the crime rate, and the bigger names are attracted by his presence, who cause more damage
Angst-driven characters aren't better, they just try to look cooler. Same reason Spiderman is better than wolverine. If you threaten a fight, even a metaphorical one, when a fictional arsebiscuit is ridiculed online, you're forming a bit too much of an attachment there.
Glue Globles and so on. But, Iron Man has 42 suits. Most of them for just because. But some of the suits he has:
Under Water Suit
Saturn Armor, and so on. So 28 compared to 42 and stills kick butt, I'd say Batman is better.
Wrong. Batman makes his equipment in The Cave. Also, there mostly physcopaths.
Batman's strength. His strength is from training since his youth. He went to China for extreme training of martial arts. Batman's known martial arts are currently debated in what they are. But one of them, known as, Kazy, it is a bentiful martial art, and a lethal one at that. However, Iron Man knows none. But some people say he can make a weapon out of anything, if that was the case for in combat, he would need time. So, what if you took away Batman's utilities? He could still fight crime, he knows many other fighting technicians. Like Kazy. Or other martial arts. I have Batman Arkham Origins and I only use Batman's utilities if I'm low on health, which only happens if there's a lot of goons or a hard boss. If we took away Iron Man;s suit, he could maybe punch, kick, or slap somebody. But that's not enough for a single man, not knowing any martial arts, against a lot of goons or a boss opponent.
To be wholly honest, I'm not entirely sure how a debate can be based around a subjectivity. Which colour is better, Red or Blue? I get it if you think one has "ripped off" the other, but the characters have plenty of degrees of separation.
Take away Batmans suit and belt, and give him a titanium alloy super suit. He's like Iron Man. But, he'd be better because he knows the skills to pull of some pretty wicked tricks from that suit. He'd be unstoppable. Do the same thing to Tony, now what? It's not the skill that hero posesess, but what the human inside can accomplish by himself. No suits. No belt. Just them.
Round 2; Batman isn't easy to figure out. Why'd you think he's easy the pick out? Bane is the only person who attacked the Batcave. So there equal there.
Round 3; Batman could still beat Iron Man with suits on. He has a gadget called a Disrupter. It disrupts a gun, a machine, a suit, anything with electronically used powers.
Tony and Bruce both design their equipment and make it. Tony makes better things, he's an inventor not a martial artist. To say that it's not the skill of the hero that determines their value but the "human" inside doesn't make much sense either. Tony's suits are not an inherited power. He was not taught how to make them by a shadowy league. They are an extension of his character and are as much a part of him as fists are t Bruce. The Arc reactor in Tony's chest links him to his suits in such a way that if his suits were stripped from him, he's make an equivalent gadget to replace them on the fly.
2; Are you joking? Who else in Gotham has the money to to create such vast arrays of equipment and also has a motive to hate criminals to the point of fighting them at night? In the film people figure it out, Ra's al Ghul knows his identity, Bane knows it, Dr. Strange knows it too, as does the Joker. It's not hard, people just aren't able to come forward about it.
3; Firstly, if this is the disruptor from Arkham City you're talking about, remember that it has a very short range, a short duration of disabling its target and cannot be activated more than three times in quick succession. Against someone who can break the sound barrier, the disruptor poses little threat. Anyway, why do you think superiority has to come down to a fight? In terms of fighting, one fights human enemies and the other fights cosmic enemies. As I said before, you wouldn't expect Batman to win against Lobo, and the argument that if you took away all of Lobo's powers doesn't work because it's only ever a hypothetical.
Having said that, this was a debate I enjoyed, and I hope we'll get to debate again in future.
