Batman vs Iron Man – Bruce Wayne

Batman’s secret identity is Bruce Wayne. He is the son of Martha and Thomas Wayne, who were brutally murdered in an alley robbery. Several years later, Batman would later find out that his parent’s deaths were not an accident and were, in fact, a set up from Gotham’s secret society named the court of owls.

Martha and Thomas Wayne were beautiful souls, and they had a dream to change the world. From Gotham, their impacts could be felt around the whole city, which did not go well with the elites that run Gotham. Saddened by this loss, Bruce is forced to recede to himself. He was never alone as he always had the help of his family butler, Alfred Pennyworth.  Alfred is later said to have raised him and made sure he grows up into an amazing.

He becomes Bruce Wayne, the Dark Knight we know. Bruce had to face his fear of bats as a child. He then decides that he can bring peace to Gotham if he can use this fear as a symbol. He begins his long and rigorous journey of fighting crime and bringing peace to Gotham. Also, he is an embodiment of his parent’s dreams that one day, Gotham can be better. He aims to make those dreams a reality. Bruce has a Batcave where he runs all his operations.

He would eventually gain a family—a batfamily who would do anything for him. Batman has many utilities that range from smoke bombs, batarangs, bat jet, night vision goggles that enable him to see and fight at night. He is a billionaire genius but masquerades as a playboy to divert attention from his alter ego as the Batman.

He has a son named Damian, whose mother is Talia ‘al Ghul. She is the daughter of Razz ‘al Ghul, a man who utilizes the powers of a mysterious resurrection spring called the Lazarus pit. He is hundreds of years old and leads the League of Shadows. An elite ninja clan that works in the shadows of Gotham. Talia drugged Batman and slept with him to conceive Damian. He seemed like he had good genes, and she wanted to exploit that.

Bruce survives based on his intellect and is regarded as the Leader of one of the Justice League. He is said to have outrun even Darkseid’s omega beams and has saved the world more times than we can count.

Batman vs Iron Man – Tony Stark

Tony stark, also known as Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark, is a billionaire philanthropist. He is a billionaire, a playboy, and a tech genius. He runs Stark Industries. 

When Tony suffers a chest injury during a kidnapping, his kidnappers wanted him to build a mass destruction weapon. In captivity, he builds a mechanized iron man suit and escapes from their clutches. He later builds the suit properly, using Stark Industries technology to make it. He weaponizes it and adds state-of-the-art defense technology into it. 

Iron Man was originally an idea of the late Stan Lee created to explore cold war themes. Much like how DC also created alternate versions of Superman and other heroes, as seen in Red Son: Superman. A Nazi superman. Iron man was originally that but evolved into something more than that. Tony Stark is an inventor, a founding member of the Avengers.

He is a hero and a former playboy who is also the CEO of Stark Industries. He started as the chief manufacturer of weapons for the US military. Eventually, he has a change of heart. This is why he builds the suit and decides to defend those who can not defend themselves against forces beyond them. He is a hero and a genius in his own right.

He is a son to Howard & Maria Stark and He marries Miss Pepper Potts and gives birth to Morgan Stark.

Batman vs Iron Man – Who Would Win?

Several fans have compared the abilities of these two even though they’re from different Universes. The main reason for this is they are the leaders of their teams with almost the same back story and driving force behind their actions. You don’t get the avengers without Iron Man, and you don’t get the Justice League without Batman.

Batman is an avid thinker, a genius that is always several steps ahead. Every action taken is due to a carefully concocted plan that ends up getting him on top every time. Iron Man also does this but is not as meticulous as Batman.

Batman makes sure that he covers all his bases and understands the threat they face to better prepare for it. Although the threats Batman and the Justice League have faced are every bit as dangerous as the ones the AVENGERS have, Batman vs Iron Man as two individuals would have Iron Man come out on top.

Iron Man also possesses an upgraded suit he created to battle a maniac Hulk he calls the Hulkbuster. Batman also has a mech suit he calls Iron Bat. He created this to battle Superman in Dawn of Justice. Only when these two mech suits are matched in battle might there be a tie in their abilities.

Iron Man would win because he would dominate in 4/7 categories, but it would be a close fight all the way through. There is no doubt that Iron Man has access to more tech and a stronger company in Stark Industries when it comes to resources.

Batman would win on intelligence with his detective abilities. He knows how to think in advance and cover his tracks, but Tony Stark is no dummy. When it comes to connections, it’s hard to say for sure, but we think the Avengers are deeper and win against the Justice League. Superman is the wild card as we are not sure if the avengers would have an answer for him without Kryptonite.

Batman wins on strength and toughness. He does not protect Gotham City in a suit that is made of Steel. He takes real hits and pain and has to get up and keep going. And he has no super healing or anything else. His strength and toughness are through the roof.

Iron Man wins on suits and gadgets because that is his specialty. Over time he kept improving his tech, whereas Batman has more or less stayed the same. His vehicles don’t improve by much, nor do his suits or gadgets.

That would give Iron Man the slight upper hand over Batman. But it would not be by much and you can expect Batman to fight to the death on this one without a doubt.
