So, in the comic nerd world it’s a longstanding debate: Could Batman really ever beat Superman.  The answer is often: “Yes, with proper planning and preparation.”  It’s how DC itself has answered the question in everything from Mark Waid’s JLA run through Frank Miller’s Dark Knight graphic novel, satirized above.

This appears to be Garth Ennis’ take on the question, which is that even a moderately powered Supe could beat the snot out of Batman because Bats isn’t the only dude who can plan and prepare.  And if there’s one character in Ennis’ ouvre who is all about the planning and prep, it’s Butcher.
