Thug: Where are you?!
Batman: Here.
~ Batman to a panicking thug before taking him out

From this moment on, none of you are safe...
~ Batman

No, not "may be", I am. When the mugger or the thief stops to think twice, that is fear. That is what I am. That is why they hired assassins - because I am the reason the criminals breathe easier when the sun rises. So no, Alfred, I am not in over my head. Tonight will not be my end... but it will be theirs!
~ Batman

I am vengeance! I am the night! I AM BATMAN!
~ Batman

Bruce Wayne AKA Batman is a famous vigilante & superhero from DC Comics. He appeared in the 23rd episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Batman VS Spider-Man, where he fought Marvel's most popular hero, Spider-Man. He returned in episode 36, Batman VS Captain America, where this time he fought against a different Marvel icon, Captain America.


Bruce Wayne was the son of billionaire couple Thomas and Martha Wayne, and was forever changed after his parents were killed in an alleyway right in front of his eyes. After this traumatizing experience, he dedicated his life to wage war on the criminal empire, and spent the next decade physically and mentally improving himself to peak human perfection. Determined to strike fear into the hearts of criminals, he is inspired by a bat flying into the window and becomes the vigilante known as Batman, the defender of Gotham City.

  • Batman made the most appearances in ScrewAttack fighting shows out of any other combatants with 8, having appeared as a combatant in two Death Battles, in two One Minute Melees and having had a cameo in four other Death Battles. The second place goes to Akuma with 7, who appeared once in Death Battle, three times in One Minute Melee as a fighter, once in DBX as a fighter and in two cameos in two other One Minute Melee's.
