IN POWER LEVEL

INTRO

Over his long storied history, Batman has been incarnated in various media: comic, live-action series and movies, video games, radio and more. Importantly, what has seized the fans’ imagination seems to have been the Dark Knight’s tortured but disciplined humanity. Though Batman may have demons, he always seems to come out on top. And he always comes to a battle prepared with ten moves ahead.

Let’s delve into why Batman’s Strength Class is properly speaking a Metahuman.

The TV Regent

SCRATCH THAT ORIGIN STORY

Batman Begins. WB.

What truly makes Batman special is the fact he really is a human. Through sheer determination and fanatic discipline, he conquers seemingly unsurmountable obstacles. Such as assassins, mad scientists, alien powerhouses, gods and magical beings. Yet, if he is undeniably human, his strength level indicates he belongs with the metahumans. What does this mean?

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

RESPONSES FROM TWITTER USERS

Properly speaking, the Twitter audience is correct. In terms of speed and durability Batman is undeniably a Peak Human-Level.

However, how does he defeat metahumans and teams of metahumans, with or without preparation? Let’s explain!

CHECK OUT THE STORY: Why Doctor Doom Is Marvel’s Greatest Villain

BAT-GOD OR BAT-NINJA?

First, one ability that Bruce Wayne possesses is his Genius-Level intellect. With his expertises in criminology, psychology, chemistry, biology, forensics and computer engineering Batman is able to devise scientific solutions to problems from small to larger scales. For this reason, he has often been called Bat-god. At the same time, Batman is a master strategist.

With preparedness, he is able to dismantle an organization and defeat a metahuman, god or demon. In many respects, this is a function of the Dark Knight’s mastery of all martial arts disciplines on Earth, his expertise with mysticism, magic and the supernatural. For this reason, he has often been called Bat-ninja. Properly speaking, read below why the Caped Crusader is actually a Bat-ninja.

THAT FAMOUS BAT-KICK

In Feat: Batman, ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ #1, we rated Batman’s notorious Bat-kick in the DC/Marvel crossover from the 1980s.

Given Hulk’s tough skin and “oversized lungs”, no one outside of at least a Metahuman Level in Strength Class could have caused Hulk’s reflex.1 Evidently, Batman kicked Hulk at a pressure point, the solar plexus.

In terms of Strength Level, Hulk’s oversized lungs would have necessitated approximately a Planetary Level of Super Strength in order to gasp for air.

For this reason, in order to save appearances, we can state that the Bat-kick likely required Bat-ninja Fighting Skills with chi manipulation. Or blame it on Deus Ex Machina.

Feat: Batman, ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ #1

In 'Batman vs The Incredible Hulk' Batman performs a super strength feat. During the battle, Batman kicks Hulk at the solar plexus, depriving him of air and making the monster susceptible to sleeping gas.

BATMAN (BRUCE WAYNE)
EARTH-ONE

In ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ (1995) #1, titled “The Monster and The Madman”, Batman performs a fighting skills feat. Hired by the Shaper of Worlds, Joker has robed one of Bruce Wayne’s labs and turned Hulk against Batman. During the battle, Batman kicks Hulk at the solar plexus, depriving him of air and making the monster susceptible to sleeping gas.

How much fighting skill does it take for Batman to kick Hulk at the solar plexus, depriving him of air?

Batman is cornered by the Hulk and has nowhere to go. In order to even the odds, he triggers sleeping gas. However, Hulk, displaying some measure of intelligence, holds his breath. Batman states that “Hulk can hold his breath from now till next Christmas.”1

We will use this statement to estimate Hulk’s vital capacity. This will help us determine the strength of Batman’s kick at Hulk’s solar plexus.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

The Hulk possesses an organ that allows him to breathe underwater. At the same time, his lung capacity allows him to hold his breath for an indefinite amount of time. Vital capacity is a measure of how much air our lungs can retain, when holding our breath.In this feat, Hulk holding his breath is actually a function of his vital capacity.

It must be noted, that though Hulk is Bruce Banner’s transformation into a monster, we can still assume that he is an oversized human to simplify our calculations. In Investigation: What Factors Affect Lung Capacity we use a graph in order to estimate lung capacity (L) from the change in diameter (cm) after exhaling into a balloon.

Below is the graph.

Batman, ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ #1

Using a program, I obtained the equation of the best-fit parabola:

Equation of parabola = 19.9124x^2 − 212.429x + 448.505.

According to Batman, Hulk can hold his breath for six months. Let’s obtain the ratio of breath holding for a human, which is between 30s and 90s.

Ratio of Breath Holding = (6 months*30 days*24 hours*3600 seconds)/(90 seconds) = 172800.

Next, we use the fact a human can retain 6 Liters of air to compute the diameter at 22.8 cm. To find Hulk’s ballon diameter, we multiply by our ratio.

Balloon Diameter = (172800*22.8) = 3939840 cm.

Now we can find Hulk’s vital capacity.

Vital Capacity = (19.9124*3939840*3939840 – 212.429*3939840 + 448.505) = 3.0908619*10^14 Liters.

The metabolism of breathing is burning about 5000 calories. We can use this to find the energy in Joules used by Hulk’s vital capacity.

Energy in Joules = (5000 calories*3.0908619*10^14 Liters*4184 J)/(1 calorie) = 6.4660831*10^21 Joules.

Let’s calculate the calories burned by Batman during a 10 minute martial arts activity.

Batman, ‘Batman vs The Incredible Hulk’ #1

If we divide the super strength of Batman’s kick by the metabolic expenditure in 10 minutes, we get the following: = (6.4660831*10^21 J*1 cal)/(166250 cal*4184 J) = 9.2958253*10^12.

FIGHTING SKILLS

In order to deprive Hulk of air, Batman had to generate a kick of 6.4660831*10^21 Joules of energy. That is a mammoth amount of energy. In comparison, the Earth receives 430*10^18 Joules/hr of energy from the sun.

Batman had to generate a Planetary Level of Super Strength in his kick. This is not humanly feasible and shows that Batman likely used martial arts and chi to kick Hulk at a pressure point, namely the solar plexus.

According to Battle Ranker: The Competition, since Batman generated a Planetary Level kick, he can defeat 500000001-10E13 men in combat. Therefore, Batman generated a Warrior Madness Level of Fighting Skills with his pressure point kick.
