Yes, I’ve done this before, but with Punisher and Deadpool.
So we already know that if he snapped, Bruce Wayne could take down every hero and villain in the DC Universe, but HOW? WHY?
That’s what I want to discuss here, while also running through it.
So let’s get ready to see…
BATMAN KILL THE DC UNIVERSE!!!
This is what Dark Knights Metal was
In this case, I mean Batman with no power advantages. The Dark Knights each have different powers: Red Death has super-speed on par with the Flash, the Drowned can breath underwater and poison the Earth’s main resource with a touch, the Dawnbreaker has the best of the Green Lanterns and the Yellow Lanterns, the Merciless has the full power of Ares, the Devastator is Batman with the full strength of Doomsday, the Murder Machine can control all tech, and the Batman Who Laughs has the pure insanity of Joker mixed with Batman’s commitment and will.
Here, I’m not giving Batman any advantages except everything he already has. Also, worth mentioning that Batman managed to beat the Batman Who Laughs, Superman, Wonder Woman, and DARKSEID without any special abilities.
In fact, the creator/writer of True Detective said that with enough time to plan, Batman could credibly defeat GOD. As in Father of Christ God.
You’ve just described the origin of The Batman Who Laughs
Well he’s got that no-kill code. So, for him to go full rogue, something fundamental about him would have to change. Really curious to hear more thoughts on this!
Nope. The BWL has advantages in the form of the ability to traverse the Multiverse whenever he wants and the insanity of Joker.
My idea is some big thing results in the ENTIRE Bat-Family dying, so Batman decides to kill every hero and villain. It’s my justification for this whole thing.
I can definitely see how that would send Bruce down a dark path. Intriguing idea! Would be intense to see play out.
That’s why I specified the origin. Before he ever got in touch with Barbatos, The Batman Who Laughs killed all the heroes in his own universe.
All those Batmen started with no powers. I figure it would kind of be like that.
Batman would excel in Preacher if that is that case.
The show/comics Preacher?
Yeah. I read it for the first time in full on this app. Comics are better than the show I’ll say
I think if someone killed all his children his family he would snap like a twig
and to protect the children that remain the only thing he could think to do is take it over
for awhile he would convenes other heroes to take his side but then he would kill them to can’t have someone with power turning bad after all
He’s already one tragedy away after all. No sane person dresses like a Bat and fights crime.
well in his world they do
True. And in another, putting on Red and Blue spandex with webbing and kicking criminals in the face is also considered sane
I would not. I would honor their dying wishes (The Lazarus Pit messed with Jason).
oh you could handle one ’ two maybe even three but not all of them
every man has a weakness everyone thinks that its that batman can be killed but there wrong its loss
