Batman Vs Capt. America

By Bytesandbanter @bytesandbanter
After the sidekicks Winter Soldier and Nightwing faced off it is time for the masters to battle it out.
BatmanName: Bruce Wayne
Affiliation: Founding member of Justice League Of America
Background: Orphaned at the age of 14, Bruce Wane's life changed totally with the death of his parents. He vowed to take revenge on the criminal world. After completing his education in US, he went far-east to learn new fighting styles and criminal psychology. He initially fought as a plain-clothed vigilante but was so badly beaten up that he realised that he must wear a cowl to actually strike fear into the hearts of the villains. So he adorned his Batman armour and became the Dark Knight who protected Gotham.
Name: Steve Rogers
Capt AmericaAffiliation: Leader of the Avengers for some time
Background: Steve Rogers was a thin and weak Arts student who failed in passing the physical examination test for enrolling into the US Army. So he took part in Operation Rebirth and thus emerged as a super-soldier. Defeating the Nazis along with his side-kick Bucky Barnes made him a hero in the US. Unfortunately on one of his missions, he and Bucky were presumed to be dead after they diffused a bomb in mid-air which caused the plane to explode in mid-air and threw the two of them into the depths of the sea. He was later recovered by the US forces and came to be an important member of the Avengers Initiative.
Batman vs Capt. America
Skill :
Learning all types of martial arts on his tour of the East makes Batman a deadly force to be reckoned with in hand-hand combat. His stealth makes him really powerful at night when he is often seen take down hundreds of villains just by hiding in the shadows.
Batman's utility belt contains a deadly arsenal of
  • Batarangs
  • Grapnels and hooks
  • Razor sharp throwing blades
  • Smoke pellets
But Batman's main weakness is the ruthlessness he lacks, Batman never kills his foes whereas Capt. America makes no such promises.
Capt. America's skill too is greatly enhanced due to the Super-Soldier serum. His shield is made of vibranium and can even withstand a heavy blow from Thor's Mjollnir. Capt also throws his shield with great accuracy and speed.
Batman - 85/100
Capt. America - 80/100
Keeping in mind all these things it is a really close call but just like his sidekick Batman edges out Capt due to the stealth factor.
Intellect :
Well, the less i say about this topic the better for Capt America fans. Though Capt America is an able and shrewd leader, his intellect is nowhere near Batman who is the most intelligent character in DC Comics.
Batman - 80/100
Capt America - 65/100
No contest here... Batman all the way.
Armour :
BatmobileBatman wears a Flameweave / Kevlar composite armour which is fire-resistant and bulletproof to some extent. His cowl acts as a  prop to make his figure seem more terrifying while the cape often makes the enemies aim at the larger figure instead of aiming exactly at him.
He rides on his Batmobile which is High-Powered Car with built in weaponry.
Steve Rogers' bike Captain America had designed his own armour after the American flag, it is made of fire-retardant material and he wears a lightweight, bulletproof "duralumin" scale armour beneath his uniform for added protection.
He rides on a custom made motorcycle designed by S.H.I.E.L.D. and reimprovised by Wakanda Techs.
Batman - 70/100 Capt. America - 70/100
The round is tied as Batman has the better transport and Capt. America has better armour.
Special Powers :
Both are mortals and rely on their tech rather than any super human abilities.
Batman - 0/100 Capt. America - 0/100
Batman - 235/400 Capt. America - 215/400
Batman wins this match with his stealth tactics. Also his Batmobile just outclasses Captain's bike.
