    lol at batman beating goku or superman. Both those kats move faster than a human brain even triggers them to move. But im supposed to believe batman can beat both of em...please

    I wouldn't really argue with Batman fans. He has lost to Superman every time in the main universes, yet Batman fans believe he can beat Clark.

    Shit...

    It's a possessed Batman, not like much would of changed. It just shows that a full body krytonite suit isn't enough to take down Superman. As you can see he still has his power around Batman

    I'm surprised no one has deaded this yet.

    The Goku vs Batman/Superman debate is off base for two reasons.

    1. The writing in Dragon Ball is notoriously bad and inconsistent. DC on the other hand is much more consistent, but there's also a multiverse in which not everything that happens applies to the main continuity of a character.

    2. More importantly, it's a fucking death battle. Which means each character is trying to kill the other regardless of their personality traits. Goku, Bats, and Supes all try not to kill people in general although sometimes it happens, most likely by mistake or they have no other choice. But in both of the Goku vs Supes videos, they tried to incorporate the noblesides of both characters when they're still trying to kill each other which is stupid because... It's a fight to the death. It's called bloodlust aka "morals off".

    With that being said, if both characters are on bloodlust, Batman loses within seconds. You can't prep for an opponent who can instantly transmit his fist through your chest. Supes might have more of a chance though and if he can withstand Goku's ridiculously convenient special moves, then he could definitely win.

    I don't know if I would call giving a character a bunch of feats that don't make any logical sense "good writing." For example, Superman once heard a gunshot from the other side of a city and managed to fly across the city and intercept the bullet before it hit the target. The problem is that the bullet would have most likely hit the person before the sound even reached Superman, so the feat is literally impossible. Superman does a lot of that kinda stuff. That's bad writing.

    I also wouldn't say the writing is more consistent. Superman can effortlessly dodge things coming at him at light speed in some instances and then gets hit by a big slow tank in another. That's not consistent writing. Say what you want about DBZ, but Goku is not going to beat Freiza one day and then struggle sparring against Krillin the next day.

    On top of that, a lot of the "bad writing" attributed to DBZ isn't actually bad writing. They are bad translations in an attempt to Americanize DBZ.

    The BatGod's prep is probably the biggest running joke on the IC. People were actually attempting to come up with an argument that Bruce with enough prep time could take out Galactus.

    Fucking Galactus. I was done with the prep after that.

    The fact that different writers come up with different feats have to be taken into account with DC. Not making excuses for it, but at least that stuff gets reconned.

    But Dragon Ball? Are we really to believe that a super saiyan could beat the supposed most powerful in the universe in Freiza, only to come back to Earth and have problems with earth bound androids? And by "problems", I mean anything besides beating them outright and with ease.
