Batman vs Black Panther: Here's Who Would Win

Batman vs Black Panther
The battle that spans the multiverse!

Batman vs Black Panther

DC’s Batman pitted against Marvel’s Black Panther. The genius inventors, tacticians, and master martial artists of their own universes. How well would they fare if they’d have to fight each other?


Batman Powers And Abilities

The Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, the Superhero with no superpowers, he is the Batman. Billionaire playboy during the day, and crime-fighting vigilante by night, Bruce Wayne took his childhood trauma and turned it into every criminals’ worst nightmare.

One of the founders of the Justice League, and head of the Bat-Family, he plays an important role in the DC Universe. With contingency plans upon contingency plans, there’s nothing he isn’t prepared for. Just take a look at his safe full of kryptonite.

What Batman lacks in superpowers, he makes up for in his inhuman intelligence and drive to ensure justice is always served. There’s not a thug in Gotham who wouldn’t hesitate to commit a crime when they fear the Bat is just around the corner, waiting to leap into action.

Black Panther Powers And Abilities

The Wakandan King, Defender of his Tribe, Black Panther is a title earned through hard work and dedication. T’Challa has protected his people from a young age, fending off Ulysses Klaw after he murdered his father, T’Chaka. 

He’s conquered the champions of the Wakandan tribes, amassed a fortune, and armed himself with incredible technology. Working alongside the Fantastic Four and the Avengers, Black Panther has saved the day multiple times, defeating foes such as Man-Ape and the second Sons of the Serpent, while even taking up Daredevil’s mantle as the defender of Hell’s Kitchen.

With his powers granted to him by the Panther God, T’Challa will protect his lands from any invaders without a second thought. With the warriors of Wakanda backing their King, Black Panther is not someone you’d want to make an enemy of.

How the Battle Would Go Down

When thinking about how the fight would play out, you have to take some things into consideration. Has either one of them had time to plan beforehand? Would they be fighting in a place familiar to one of them? There’s a lot of factors when deciding who would win in the fight. 

To keep the battle fair and based purely on their abilities and not who could prepare the best, we’re going to say they both were dropped into an empty area neither had seen before.  They must fight each other without ever meeting or knowing of their opponent’s existence.

While Batman may be a master of stealth, able to hide in the shadows, Black Panther has heightened sense. His sense of smell is impeccable, allowing him to smell faint hints of Batman before he could even pounce from the darkness.

However, Black Panther’s heightened senses are both a gift and a curse, as they can also be one of his weaknesses. Due to Batman being a genius tactician, he would pick up on this quickly. He could easily determine that Black Panther has heightened senses. This would make it very easy to disorient him, which Batman definitely has some gadget in his belt, such as a flashbang grenade to disorient Black Panther, and easily get a few hits in.

This is a nice trick, but unfortunately, I don’t believe it would be enough alone to stop T’Challa. While Batman has peak-human abilities, Black Panther has superhuman abilities. No matter how much Batman trained, Black Panther will physically one-up the Caped Crusader every single time. The King will always be able to run faster, hit harder, and take way more abuse than the Bat ever could.


And the Winner is…

After careful determination, Black Panther would win. While Batman would put up a fight, rivaling his opponent, in the end, it wouldn’t be enough. The Wakandan King would sink his claws into the flesh of his enemy, defeating Bruce Wayne, and making him the winner of this matchup.
