“Dark Knight Returns” Batman vs “Kingdom Come” Superman

A new DC Entertainment “Versus” video puts the “Kingdom Come” Superman up against the Batman from the “Dark Knight Returns” world.

It’s a battle guaranteed to rock the Multiverse… Dark Knight Returns‘ Batman vs. Kingdom Come‘s Superman! They’re both older and wiser, but no less determined. Will Batman’s brilliant strategic thinking and planning for every contingency take the day? Or will the might of a Man of Steel who’s now immune to Kryptonite reign supreme?

Sick of this fight and damn sure sick of DKR.

This is the Superman no Batman could ever defeat. It is not a matter of power, even though he has become enough to be inmune even to kryptonite. This is an older, wiser one. Of course more powerful, but most of all one that has seen the best and worst of Bruce. One that wouldn’t confront Batman unprepared. And when Clark uses his brain there is nowere you can hide and nothing you can do. Not even Batman.

And yes, I’m tired of putting one against the other every month.

I agree, there’s no way Batman can defeat Superman. Superman is the best.

Oh damn it. I’m so tired of this crap. Batman beating Superman in TDKR worked, because it was a subversion. Now these spats have somehow become the norm in pop culture. It’s ridiculous. No Batman would ever beat any Superman. He wouldn’t even be able to hold his own. There are literally infinite ways in which Superman could kill Batman and a fair amount in which he’d simply beat him. The only way Batman can beat Superman is if he stabs him in the back when Superman doesn’t expect it. That’s it. Literally the only reason Batman has “a contingency… Read more »

Again this? One thing about Kingdom Come Superman, I never understood the grey hair in such a short period of time? Grey hair, which would not show until long-EONS-after the original members of the justice league have gone on. Now, if Superman had been absorbing all that solar radiation, his cells could/would have become super-saturated and essentially becoming like micro-mini suns themselves, if so, Superman’s life span could be tied in the main sequence star and that means billions of years before it exhausts its nuclear fuel the conversion process of hydrogen in helium stops and the star cools and… Read more »

This is ridiculous.

He didn’t even win against a weaker Superman, I don’t see how these dudes think he might actually win against a Superman that is IMMUNE to Kryptonite.

I’m getting tired of DC propagating this Superman vs Batman nonesense.

@NeoRanger “I like Batman. A lot. DC has to stop giving me reasons to dislike him.” Agreed. My ability to enjoy a character that was my second favorite superhero of all time has been severely compromised over and over through the years since I first discovered him. As an idea The Batman is still one of my favorite characters. As a character or even as an entity in popular culture his stock has diminished for me and the constant regurgitation of this conflict on the part of DC and fandom itself is a one part of the reason why. @jer… Read more »

I never liked the idea of one Superhero fighting another. It doesn’t make sense to me. Two heroes who fight injustice shouldn’t fight one another. Instead they should work together to bring justice.

Is it even a question? Superman, hands down. The only reason Batman got the upper hand(and I say upper hand because he did not beat him, he slowed Superman down enough for him to fake his own death before Superman took him out) was because Superman was weakened from the nuclear missile and the kryptonite arrow. This Superman shrugged off a nuke like it was nothing and is immune to kryptonite.

DC Comics learned in 1986, that three things sell.

1) Rebooting the DC Universe.

2) Dark and grit superhumans, who aren’t heroes in the slightest.

3) Batman and Superman fighting each other for no bloody good reason.

The trouble is, they haven’t learned much else since then. ;)

liheibao you and @MATTCOMICS bring up a some very salient points concerning;

Hero vs Hero – fighting each other for no good reason as I always cringe when I see this.

The Dark-grim anti-hero – (and the subsequent rise of) it certainly represents a fundamental shift in good portion of the population since I was a kid years ago.

The question here is why that shift and what was the trigger?
