Ready? Batman vs Deathstroke, let’s go!

Batman vs Deathstroke:  Powers and Weaknesses

When it comes to fighting skills, gadgets, and brains, The Dark Knight and Deathstroke are essentially at the top of the food chain. While neither of them has actual ‘superpowers’, they both held their own against many superpowered foes whose abilities far surpass their own. Heck, they each beat up the Justice League! However, despite obvious similarities between them, the rivalry between them has spanned decades. In the end, Deathstroke is a murderer with a disregard for human life, and when it comes to killers Batman operates by his black-and-white standards! Deathstroke, on his part, never understood Batman’s opposing view on the issue of assassination. Or as Deathstroke puts it in Arkham Origins video game: “Is it self-righteousness or squeamishness that stops you from killing?” So, we might consider Batman’s unwillingness to kill as one of his major weaknesses. Also, because Bruce Wayne’s parents have been killed with a firearm, Batman doesn’t just kill, but he also doesn’t use guns under any circumstances. Deathstroke, by contrast, isn’t afraid to pull out a gun or two as needed. However, it’s not like Deathstroke, aka Slade Wilson, is free of weaknesses. He recognizes his own Achilles heel in Faces of Evil: Deathstroke, saying that the only fights he’s ever lost are those where his tactical genius was drowned out by his emotions. Meaning, Slade is sometimes so overcome with emotion that it overrides his logic, causing him to lose the battle. I don’t see how either of them can exploit these weaknesses in a regular battle.

Batman vs Deathstroke:  The Battle

Physically speaking, Deathstroke is superior to Batman. That’s because he was injected with a super soldier serum similar to that of Captain America. Although Batman has pulled off some extreme feats that require immense strength, he is still only in peak human condition, while Slade Wilson is what DC Comics refers to as a “meta-human”. However, Deathstroke has acknowledged that Batman “hits harder than most beings with superhuman strength.” That said, I believe that Batman is still no match for Slade at least physically. Deathstroke also comes to the fight equipped with just as many toys and gadgets as Batman does. Furthermore, his advanced special ops training makes him just as good a hand-to-hand fighter as Wayne. There’s not much to say about this fight: Deathstroke was practically created to be Batman’s superior in every conceivable way. He’s Batman on steroids.

Batman vs Deathstroke: Who wins? Deathstroke!

We all know that Batman is the better man in every way… just not physically. Deathstroke is virtually a Captain America and Deadpool combined. He is stronger, faster, has a healing factor, and will kill if necessary. He will eventually BEAT Batman in a fight. And DC agrees! Deathstroke is one of the few villains with a track record of embarrassing Batman hand-to-hand. Now, if given some serious prep time, Batman might be able to find a way to come up on top. With the advantage of being a billionaire and probably the better planner, he can use his piles of money to build suits and weapons and defeat Deathstroke. Also, Batman has stronger allies than Deathstroke. His allies are the Justice League, the Bat-family, and other heroes, who are far more powerful than Deathstroke’s allies. If this was a war then Batman would win. But in a one-on-one battle, with standard equipment and no preparation time, Slade would beat Bruce.
