Welcome back to the greatest feature on any website on the internet! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are talking about Batman Vs., our series where we pit the Caped Crusader against a gauntlet of opponents, and see how he uses his wits and fists to get out of the situation.
And when you think about a man who is resourceful, cunning and thinks on his feet, no one really embodies that better than Officer John McClane from the Die Hard series.
The man always seems to end up at the wrong place but at the right time. He has shown he is capable of using any and everything nearby to do what he has to do. So how does this law enforcement stack up against our Brooding Brawler?
For starters, how would this confrontation come about? Batman only haunts those who do wrong, and McClane seems to only spring into action when the situation calls for it. Since we make up the rules here, and we really do want to see these two battle at their prime. Let’s suppose that Batman responded to one of the distress calls sent out by McClane during the first Die Hard movie at Nakatomi Plaza.
Without much information, Batman is forced to enter the building and can not tell friend from foe in terms of armed men in the building. He meets McClane on the 34th floor while he is armed. Batman being the quick and agile warrior that he is disarms McClane, and knocks him off his feet before he has time to respond.
Batman will keep him awake long enough to gather some information. McClane will plea that he is one of the good guys, but Batman won’t buy it. Before delivering one final blow to knock him out.
Another round goes to The Batman!
