This contest is now closed. Thanks for all those who participated!
We've arrived at the final Dark Knight Showdown. Throughout the past three weeks, we’ve been pitting Batman against some of DC Comic's iconic superheroes and while we could continue to pit the Gotham Knight against other DC properties like The Flash, the various Watchmen and Shazam (don't think he'd win that one), we all know this has to end with a showdown between the other iconic member of the DC universe.
We're talking, of course, about the one they call Kal-El aka Clark Kent. You probably know him better as Superman and while Batman could probably take down the Man of Steel with a good chunk of Kryptonite, we have a feeling that's a lot easier said than done.
No need really to list off Superman's superpowers, but if you need a bit of a refresher, he possesses superhuman strength, breath, hearing, vision, smell and speed, immunity to almost all forms of harm and ailments, flight, heat vision and an eidetic memory allowing him to recall everything he has ever seen.
Ever the technician, one would expect Batman to somehow find a way to exploit Superman's weaknesses including Kryptonite and radiation from the Red Sun.
We'll leave it up to you from here on who you think would win this showdown. Comment below with who you think would win (one comment per entrant) and we'll randomly pick a winner who will score a $50 Dark Knight Rises collectible Fandango Bucks gift card. You must be 18 or older to participate and your comment must be posted by Wednesday, July 18 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters July 20.

Yes superman is nearly invincible, but no immortal. Everyone is forgetting that Batman has a kryptonite bullet on him at all times because in case superman turns his back on earth and goes out of control, batman needs to put him back down. In a fist fight batman stands no chance and in a fight of wits, Batman wins no doubt. Also emotionally Batman is the strongest while Superman has his regrets. Batman also has all the resources to put even superman down. Hands down Batman wins, Barely. so yes BATMAN WINS.
As much as I love batman...have to go with superman on this one. One really hard punch to batman and its lights out for bats...
im a huge batman fan and even i know superman would win. watch superman/batman apocolypse
I think Batman. Or maybe Superman. No I really think Batman will beat Superman. Unless Superman is in a bad mood, then Batman has no chance. It'll be a tie and there will be a throwdown between Alfred and Ma Kent for the honors.
Batman will always lose to Superman.
Batman already defeated Superman in The Dark Knight Returns. How is this even a debate?
Superman , definitely! Batman is ode but the tummy tickeling
When superman does his stunts it's like you're him, feeling the things he would like flying or jumping from skyscrapers! Better plot too. All around just more exciting!
Batman will do what it takes to defeat his foe and will win a fight with Superman.
As much as I love Batman, I have to go with Superman. Once Batman's all out of gadgets and gizmos, and this fight comes down to strength and stamina, Superman would take the whole thing.
Batman never loses!!!
This has already been played out time and time again in the comics and animated series, Batman does not trust ANYONE, he has files on how to destroy each member of the justice league and keeps Kryptonite on hand at all times in case something happens and he has to take Superman out. That being said every time they have faced off in any of the series Batman has won every time!
batman even superman called batman " the most dangerous man on the planet" read batman- the dark knight returns.
Superman, hands down! With all the super powers that Superman possesses, Batman could not get close enough to weaken Superman with kryptonite. Remember, Kal-El is a very smart cookie from Krypton. Jor-El was Superman's dad, a very smart individual who passed on all his knowledge to his son in the Fortress of Solitude. Superman all the way!
lets face it Batman is way sexier and he doesn't need no super powers to save the world, now that is kick ass!!!
This is a hard one. Superman will win with stamina and strength alone. If we are talking who we like more, I would go with Batman, his story is far more interesting. I'd rather see them work together that compete.
If I remember the comic books correctly, when they've fought Batman always won, usually due to some sort of Kryptonite weapon so I'll go with Batman.
Batman already beat superman in the story arc "The Dark Knight Returns". Superman is stronger and has more supernatural powers (heat vision, freezing breath, etc.), but Batman has more technological resources and more intelligence. Batman also has much more knowledge in hand to hand combat. Neither will kill the other but Batman is a much more brutal fighter than Superman is, Superman is more kind, even to some criminals, not to mention that he considers Batman as not only an ally, but as a friend. Batman also sees Superman as a friend, but he doesn't care for Superman as much as Superman cares for him. I'm just basing this relationship off of the graphic novels. If they were to fight again, Batman would win.
