    The have been a LOT of Batman movies and with those come many different versions of the character. From Tim Burton's cringy armor to the Justice League's Batfleck, we've run the gamut on the caped crusader. Today though, we are going to find out which of these "Batmen" are the strongest Batman of all. To do that we are going to need to compare our top contenders - Lego Batman and the good old Dark Knight himself, Batman from the Christopher Nolan movies. Why these two? Who will be crowned the best Batman in town? Let's find out!

    “So we need to measure each of them in their respective universes”. I thought you were going to bring the LEGO Batman out of the fictionally-based real world and into the reality-based fictional world. No? Then why did you say that you were? Did you forget your script? I think not!

    LEGO Batman can beat DC Batman because HE IS A LEGO, Batman will try to step on him but.. oof.

    They didn't explain it in the movie but Fox built some kind of mechanical leg brace that gave him that power. Watch the scene and listen to the sound effects sounding like a servo motor...but that's just a theory

    Your maths is wrong, Lego Batmans Strength to weight ratio is x 7.2, DC is 3.22 You have miss converted the forces when converting kg to lbs.

    Do one comparing all the mainstream Batmans - West, Keaton, Nolan, Affleck, Animated Series, and Arkham. That'd be awesome. Who's strongest?

    Just think tho.. LEGO Batman kicked a person his weight across a room by striking him at the chin. You’re telling me that the dude who kicked a brick is stronger?

    The lego batman film is a cartoon that breaks many laws of physics in the film. Compared so a somewhat realistic film like the dark knight. Obviously the cartoon would win

    You can’t say that the LEGO Batman was airborne for strictly 17 frames, because alfred was stopped by the piano. And Alfred still had an upward velocity at that time. You probably should have used a formula that took the distance and time into account. So LEGO Batman potentially could have had a much stronger kick.


    Let's be honest here MatPat, people don't care about hackers. They'll use the VPN to watch illegal porn.

    right, no, in that lego kick, lego batman kicks 35.5x his own weight, you forgot to change the distance units to be relative to nolan batman also
    and plus, nolan's wearing armor when he gets the spine oof on him

  • Andre' Warner
    Andre' Warner 11 days ago +3

    So we all gonna ignore that alfred not only survived that kick and hit a piano but got back up just fine, so the real question is who really is the strongest here I vote alfred

    I do not know if this has been done before. Pokémon, when going through their info(pokemon), it classifies them as rat, bird, or dog, and so on. Even though we know these animals do not exist in their universe. Just a thought.

    Do you call it deceleration just because he's going down?
    His speed is increasing up to that moment even if his velocity and acceleration are considered negative.
    Deceleration has it's origins as a railroad term to describe the reduction in speed. His speed is not being reduced, therefore he is not decelerating.
    It's a confusing word in general. You can be decelerating up to the point your speed reaches 0, but once you start going in the opposite direction you're accelerating in a negative direction and no longer decelerating.
    At least that's how it works to my knowledge.
