I would argue that if Wolverine and Batman were to get into a fight with no prior knowledge of the other and with no preparation that wolverine would win hands down


Batman is too strong and too fast and he could grapple onto something and throw batarangs or something at him them come down and beat the crap out of him.
Debate Round No. 1


"As a result of Wolverine's constant cellular regeneration and the additional weight and tensile strength of his skeleton he has some degree of superhuman strength enabling him to press somewhere in excess of 800 lbs but not more than 2 tons and he is able to place this strength in his strikes. The latest official handbook entry says that Wolverine is capable of lifting in excess of 800 lbs for brief periods due to his adamantium skeleton.[55]"

Master Martial Artist: Due to his extensive training as a soldier, a CIA operative, a samurai and a member of the X-Men, Logan is an exceptional martial artist, with expertise in Japanese martial arts, and has mastered 15 forms of martial arts. His extraordinary hand-to-hand combat ability makes him one of the finest combatants on Earth. He was able to keep up with both the Black Panther and the Iron Fist,[54] both expert martial artists. He has also defeated various hand-to-hand experts without using his claws.
a26;Superhumanly Acute Senses: Wolverine possesses superhumanly acute senses that are comparable to those of certain animals. He can see at far greater distances, with perfect clarity, than an ordinary human. He retains this same level of clarity even in near total darkness. His hearing is enhanced in a similar manner, allowing him to detect sounds ordinary humans couldn't hear at a greater distances, enough to hear a teardrop in another room that have thick walls with enough focus. He is able to recognize people and objects by scent, even if they are well hidden. He can track a target by scent, even if the scent has been greatly eroded by time and weather factors, with an extraordinary degree of success. Wolverine can also use his keen sense of smell to detect lies due to chemical changes within a person's scent. These senses stem from, at least partially, his constant cellular regeneration, as are his enhanced physical capabilities.
a26;Superhuman Strength: His natural strength is augmented by the demand placed on his musculature due to the presence of over 50kg/100 pounds of Adamantium bonded to his skeleton, which also removes the natural limitations of the human skeletal structure by allowing him to lift weights that would damage a human skeleton."

this is all taken from

now lets compare to batman on the official dc website

exceptional martial artist, combat strategy, inexhaustible wealth, brilliant deductive skill, advanced technology

in short how could a person (Batman) who is slower weaker and with less skill going to fight against a person (wolverine) who is considered to have super human strength, a indestructible bone structure, razor sharp nearly indestructible swords of death that come out of his arms, healing factors that have allowed him to survive a nuclear explosion and vastly superior senses. there is no possible way for the simple fact that wolverine is faster, stronger, a better fighter, heals from all wounds that batman can inflict nearly instantly, and many other things, wolverine will always win.


But Batman is smarter. One of Wolverines weaknesses is magnets. So Batman could rip him apart with strategically placed magnets. His joints aren't adamantium so they could cut or ripped off. His head could be cut off and dragged away from his body for a while and he would die. He is not fireproof if all his flesh is burned off. Vibranium is anti-metal so if Batman put even a little bit on him it would destroy him from the inside out . He could also be drowned. He doesn't have the attack range that Batman does. Batman has things to beat Wolverine from a range and he could stay out of his way. Batman has the technology to have the senses that Wolverine does.
Debate Round No. 2


yes batman is smarter, but that wont really mean much in a strait up fight with no preparation (which this is). and while yes wolverine is weak to magnets you would need one incredibly huge magnet to do anything to actually make a difference to him (think larger than a minivan) and while batman has some cool stuff on his utility belt he does not carry around car sized magnets and even if he did he would have no way of knowing that it would have an effect on wolverine. my opponent insinuates that batman could simply pull apart wolverines joints or cut his head off, this is something that not even the hulk could do and if the hulk cannot there is no possible way a slightly stronger than normal human will be able to. my opponent also argues that wolverine is not fireproof if all of his flesh is burned off, many times in wolverines life has everything been burned away but his skeleton and he is still able to heal from it and it does not affect him at all. And not only does vibranium not exist in batman's world giving him no way to get a hold of it, but vibranium would do nothing to wolverine if it was placed inside of him and his healing factor will push it right back out anyways. wolverine could be drowned but he can survive for a very long time underwater (30 min+) and he is still able to swim. while wolverine doesn't have the attack range that batman does he is much much faster and would be able to close the distance rapidly, not only does batman have nothing in his arsenal to kill the average human but he has nothing that would even remotely slow down wolverine. Batman may have the technology to at some point achieve the senses that wolverine has but once again this gives no time for preparation so poor batman will still just have faster than regular senses while wolverine is able to see in the dark see about 3 times further than the most far seeing human, he is able to track people whose tracks are weeks old, he would be able to smell batman through thick walls, wolverine can hear a water drop from through 4 foot thick concrete walls and there is no way that batman could sneak up on him.

lets look at some of the weaknesses of batman now that I have refuted my opponents points
Batman could die from drowning, falling, old age, the plague, a cut arteries, loss of blood, a heart attack, stab wounds, spontaneous combustion, burning to death, getting torn apart (which wolverine could ACTUALY do to his opponent), lack of food, a punch to the face, heart conditions, cancer, and many many more. Wolverine has absolutely none of these weaknesses except for the fact that he can drown but he would still survive underwater much longer than batman.

since my opponent never refuted any of my claims from the earlier round they all pass and are as follows, Wolverine is stronger, wolverine is much faster, Wolverine has the ability to heal from any wound batman can inflict nearly instantly, Wolverine has much better senses, wolverine has superior fighting skills, wolverine has superior weapons. these would easily defeat a higher iq (2oo compared to 130) in a strait up fight.

here's some different ways that this fight could go, batman sees wolverine and attempts to fight wolverine hand to hand, gets stabbed and dies, batman attempts to sneak up on wolverine butt gets easily caught and killed, Batman attempts to kill wolverine from a distance (but not really since he cant kill) misses every time, is unable to flee and dies, there are countless other ways that wolverine will win because no matter what Batman is able to do wolverine will just heal and since his skeleton is indestructible to batman there is nothing for batman to do except for except defeat.
Wolverine will always win easily for the following reasons: heals instantly, nearly indestructible, razor sharp blades of death he has in his hands, superior senses, superior speed, superior fighting abilities, and many other reasons that are getting to lengthy to go into.
thanks for the fun debate

Killing your opponent does not mean winning. Injuring them more than the other is however. With batman's superior agility, speed and gadgets Wolverine wouldn't even be able to touch him, rendering batman the winner, since he can throw stuff at wolverine without being in close enough contact in order for wolverine to harm him.
