If one is a research worker, one mustn’t believe in anything too strongly; one must always be prepared that various beliefs one has had for a long time may be overthrown.

iconnu  asked:

Is DC going to use the 2017 crossover as a way to show once again how "evenly matched" Cap and Batman are? Last time I checked Cap has the super soldier serum, a hell of a lot longer to develop his fighting skills, and when it comes to Batman's gadgets - well if Cap can get through some of what Stark hit him with in Civil War I think he can deal with Bruce Wayne. Just saying is all. Also, if we get "movie Superman" who kills people isn't it a bust unless The Phoenix rolls into town?

well, for the record, after much research, here is the official list of all the  people that could easily beat up batman…
