Dark Knight Showdown: Batman vs. Wonder Woman – Tell Us Who Wins and You Could Win $50 Fandango Bucks!

By: Derrick Deane on June 25, 2012 at 3:58PM Comments (115)

After beating the Green Lantern in his week one showdown, let's crank things up a bit. This week's showdown is a man vs. Amazonian Goddess battle of the sexes.

Possessing beauty, brains and brawn (and we're not talking about Mr. Wayne), Wonder Woman is Princess Diana of the immortal Amazons from Greek mythology. She possesses superhuman strength and speed as well as the trademark bulletproof bracelets and the iconic Golden Lasso of Truth, essentially a really shiny lie detector. The lasso is so strong, not even Hercules can break it, but it has been broken a few times, when truth itself was challenged.

Other Wonder Woman powers include enhanced endurance and healing, flight, divine wisdom granted to her by Athena, as well as being a master in a variety of martial arts and armed combat. Speaking of armed combat, some of her other weapons in addition to the bracelets and lasso include her royal tiara which can be used as a magical, razor sharp boomerang, magical sword and the invisible plane. And of course, there's that unofficially confirmed theory that she's immortal. Yikes, Mr. Wayne!

So can The Dark Knight take down Wonder Woman? Sound off below with who you think would win and why. One comment per entrant and you must be over 18 to win the $50 collectible Dark Knight Rises Fandango Bucks gift card. This showdown runs until Sunday, July 1 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

    Wonder Woman is a tough opponent for Batman, just because she is extremely overpowered. Her sole weakness is to tie her two bracelets together, thus leaving her entirely powerless. Here is how I imagine it happening. Batman stealthily stalks Wonder Woman, sticking to the shadows until he can launch an ambush. He would have to use flash bangs or gas to disorient her. Then use a roped batarang to swiftly catch her wrists and bring them together and tie them together. Once the two bracelets make contact, Wonder woman is helpless and powerless. Chalk up another win for batman. He needs only speed, shadows, and a strategy.

    Of the people, hero or villain, one of the few individuals that could defeat Superman, the god of superheroes is Batman. The only difference in power between Wonder Woman and Superman are Superman's heat vision, his freeze breath, then Wonder Woman has here bullet deflecting bracelets and lasso of truth. Sure Wonder Woman can fly, hit hard, and trap you in a piece of twine. The reason her bracelets exist are due to the fact that she is human. Not too mention the fact that not only would the Lasso of Truth be useless, except for the fact that it cannot be broken, Wonder Woman is disarmed in nearly every major fight. Batman would disarm Wonder Woman and trap her in her lasso, because he does not harm his allies, even when they fight.

    Batman would take down Wonder Woman because he has worked out how to defeat the other superheroes.

    Batman Hands down. He may not have any superpowers but his morality is all over the place(he won't kill anyone but he makes criminals wish that he had) which is enough to break that lasso of truth. And he only uses his gadgets to disarm or navigate. All his combat is hand to hand. Try blocking that Wonder Woman.

    Batman does kill when he deems it ultimately necessary or if they are non-humans. Also, breaking free from the lasso would cripple him. He would be better off fighting while bound.

    Wonder Woman. She is immortal and could easily take the mortal batman. she has superhuman strength, a powerful lasso that could cut off batman's curculation, and, lets face it, batman is just a high tech version of Mark Zuckerberg. So wonder woman wins, hands down. (I'm not 18 but i like this topic so i decided to comment!) ;)

    It would NOT be an easy fight but I feel Wonder Woman would win. She would be battered, bruised and probably barely conscious but victorious.

    Probably Wonder Woman. There has been so many movies about Batman without Harley Quinn so its getting over rated. I'm excited to see what Wonder Woman has in store for us!

    Wonder Women because she is more powerful and could use the lasso of truth to make Batman helpless.
