Batman vs Wolverine: Here's Who Would Win

In the wild, a wolverine would definitely defeat a bat, but can the same be said for Wolverine and Batman? James Howlett, the seemingly indestructible Wolverine pitted against Bruce Wayne, the genius superhero, Batman. Can Batman take on such an opponent, or will he end up minced meat at the claws of Wolverine?


Batman Powers And Abilities

The Dark Knight winding up a mighty punch!

The Dark Knight is always lurking in the streets of Gotham City, waiting for the next criminal to try something. Since the death of his parents, Bruce Wayne trained rigorously until he eventually put on the cowl and became Batman. Whether he’s stopping the Joker’s evil plot to stir chaos or solving one of the Riddler’s impossible puzzles, he’s always saving the day.

When evil beyond Gotham threatens the safety of the world, he works alongside his superpowered friends in the Justice League. This is not the only group Batman is affiliated with. Also, a member of the Bat-Family and founder of the Justice League Dark, his skills as a tactician and combatant are utilized across the DC Universe.

A genius mind in a peak human body, Batman is one of the strongest, fastest, and smartest superheroes without real powers. He trains intensely to be Batman, and one of his most prominent powers is how well he functions with little sleep. Criminals quake at the sound of his name, and will always think twice before committing a crime in Gotham, fearing Batman is just around the corner to foil their plans.


List of Powers and Abilities

  • Peak Human Strength: capable of lifting over 1000 pounds
  • Peak Human Agility: running faster than the fastest Olympic runner
  • Peak Human Endurance: able to fight over 24 hours
  • Ingenuity: easily coming up with creative solutions fast
  • Genius-Level Intellect: capable of solving the hardest puzzles and inventing incredible tech
  • Martial Arts Master: mastering 127 different forms
  • Master of Stealth: vanishing from plain sight with ease
  • Master Tactician: strategizing and planning for every possible scenario
  • Master Detective: solving the most unsolvable cases


Wolverine Powers And Abilities

The Wolverine in all his glory.

Born in the 19th century as an illegitimate child to Thomas Logan, James “Logan” Howlett was adopted by John and Elizabeth Howlett, two wealthy farmers. He’s had his powers since he was a child, although at times they’ve seemed like a curse to him. He’s lived through several wars, even fighting alongside Captain America in WW2. Wolverine has been used as a weapon for others such as the Weapon X program until he finally became a hero in the X-Men. 

Experience in battle is something Wolverine doesn’t lack, being hundreds of years old. He is however a bit reckless as Logan relies on his healing factor to win the majority of his battles. Capable of taking fatal gunshots and healing in a moment’s notice tends to make Logan a bit cocky.

Using his adamantium-bone claws, Wolverine slices through his opponents and saves the day alongside the X-Men.


List of Powers and Abilities

  • Adamantium Claws: three claws made of Wolverine’s indestructible adamantium bones
  • Super Human Strength: capable of lifting at least 800 lbs
  • Super Human Speed & Reflexes: capable of running up to 30 mph
  • Super Healing: able to regrow body including his nervous system, quickly
  • Heightened Senses: has animal-like senses that help detect danger in silent and dark settings


How the Battle Would Go Down 

Looking at this from a strictly physical standpoint, it’d be no question that Wolverine wins. There is simply nothing Batman could do to stop Wolverine, but this fight is actually much harder to win than simply slicing Batman in two and calling it a night.

Batman is stronger and far more cautious than Wolverine. Logan would not take someone like Batman seriously and would put himself out there in harm’s way, believing Bruce is an easy kill.

Batman would be far more careful, and would try to keep any advantage he could take, utilizing his gear, and physical and mental attributes to survive and ultimately defeat Wolverine, while James would just run in and take the beating just to try and pull off one fatal blow to Bruce.

Batman may not be as experienced as Wolverine in combat, but he is definitely more disciplined and knows 127 different martial arts. He’s also very fast and strong for a human. Batman would be able to keep up with Wolverine, even if for just a little bit.

Wolverine would definitely take a few hits, maybe even go down once or twice until he started taking Batman seriously, and that’s when things would get ugly. Batman could physically “kill” Wolverine time and time again but it wouldn’t stop his healing factor from reviving him. Wolverine plays a game of attrition and his healing factor makes him very good at that.


And The Winner Is...

Wolverine. Batman and Wolverine would have a very hard fight against each other, but Batman simply has nothing to combat Wolverine’s indestructible adamantium skeleton, nor his incredibly fast healing factor. Wolverine can take a seemingly endless beating while all it would take is one good slash to end Batman.
