Batman vs James Bond

In a forum not-so-long ago Mex pitted Batman up against James Bond in a thread, the old bastard may have been meaning movies but I am just deranged enough to find a better use for the two jocks. The intriguing idea of these two cunning heroes battling for fan loyalty has me itching to see who wins. For once I'll have to go with my sentimental favorite and cast my vote early. James Bond +1 because Batman would find himself eating a rain drenched curb of grit.

James Bond: +10 martinis

Batman: +10 papa spanks!

Robin/Owlman: -3

Moon Knight (Independent?) +1

Robocop (Peace & Freedom Party) +1

Neil Patrick Harris wins.

Is there really any question? While James Bond is macking on every attractive lady that corsses his path, Batman sits and broods in his cave with a teenage boy.

Given enough prep time, Batman can beat anyone.

My vote is for Mr. Wayne

Quit feeding this monster.

Don't be evasive, who's your pick?

Are we talking about this Batman?

I am going to have to go with Bond on this one Licence to kill > Endlessly locking the Joker in Arkum

Batman. Always! It's not even a fair fight.

Hm. After much thought, I think I'm going to have to say..

fixed.

Oh very tough call. Funny how both of them have had excellent movie franchise restarts recently.

In the end though I feel like I have to go with Bond though. There have just been so many disappointing renditions of Batman over the years.

Batman would win. Handily.

Batman makes his own gadgets, has fear on his side and a secret identity. Go Batman.

Batman beat up Superman. So he wins.

Bond is still "cooler" of the 2

When Bond finally came to Gotham to find Batman, Wayne would already know Bond's real identity, any previous injuries he could attack, and where he's coming into town from.

Batman all the way.

It really depends. If we're talking Moore/Dalton/Brosnan, then Batman wins easy, regardless of era. If we're going current incarnations, I don't know. I think the the Daniel Craig Bond has that "You can kick my ass, but I'm still gonna make you eat your balls" thing going. But Christian Bale Batman has a way cooler car. I do think however that Bond has no qualms whatsoever about killing people in cold blood, which would probably put him in the win spot. So current Bond +1.

Close call, but Christian Bale Batman wins by a hair.

Come now, if we speak of Bond, we cannot forget the worst of them all:

George Lazenby.

Therefore, Batman wins.

They would both figure out they were being duped by whoever set them on each other's trails and would team up and utterly DECIMATE that guy.

They gang up on Superman!

James Bond bitches!!!

Now if we are talking bad actors I believe George is better than Kilmer!

Not even a contest.

Batman is a ninja therefore I am biased to the Gotham Knight. However Bond would sleep with more women in a 2 hour time frame than Batman.

Hmmmmm, Bond had to be saved from a one-eyed asthmatic banker who was beating his testes into pulp then had all of his poker winnings stolen by a suicidal teenybopper. I'm not sure I can put my money on a guy like that.

Batman gets menaced by blind men and trapped inside a plastic bag.

Batman: +6 boomarangs

Ahem, those are batarangs! Though I think it should be measured in Batmobiles.

I say Bond.

Q > Alfred
Several of the later bond girls > Robin
Sean Connery > All Else

Besides, Bond is a _COLD_ mofo. And, his solutions to supervillans is more... permanent.

I give you thirty reasons why Bond > Batman.
