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.

IN POWER LEVEL

THE HULKBUSTER ARMOR IS DESIGNED TO TAKE ON HULK

Iron Man Armor Model 13.

The Hulkbuster Armor was built by Iron Man in case he had to take on the Hulk. There have been multiple variations of the Armor. Let’s look at them.

IRON MAN ARMOR MODEL 13

Iron Man Armor Model 13.

The armor was a modular component system, instead of a suit. In fact, it was an exo-suit, that assembled around Iron Man’s armor. The Hulkbuster exo-suit was used when Hulk confronted Iron Man over his production of gamma bombs at Stane International. They met at a Stark plant.

ARMOR CAPABILITIES

  • Full Spectrum Scanalyzer with Adamantium-Tipped probe. [2]
  • Magnetic Railgun Launcher with explosive shells. [3]
  • Semi-Fluid Polymer Compound [4]: energy-absorbent compound that shot out and covered its target
  • EM Field Generator [5]: attracted a lightning bolt to short out Ultimo.
  • Gravimetric Field Generator [6]: canceled out the pull of the Earth’s gravity on whatever it was attached to.
  • Polybond Adhesive Compound [7]
  • Cryogenic Compact Module [8]
  • Magnetic Compact Module [9]: used magnetic field to polarize the target. Multiple modules could be used to polarize the target with mutually opposing states making the atoms of the target repel one another.
  • Hypodermic injector [10]
  • Microsurgery Equipment [11]
  • Shoulder Mounted Weapons [12]
  • Hulkbuster, it integrated a magno-hydraulic pseudo-musculature which provided greatly enhanced strength rated at 175 tons. Sensors were adapted to focus on detecting gamma radiation. It had impact-resistant carbon composite plating and an anchoring system.

One of the five armors that was activated by remote trigger when the son of Ho Yinsen was killed by S.H.I.E.L.D. The armor attacked Times Square. The Avengers attempted to take the armor down but could not succeed. Realizing it was triggered by his consciousness, Iron Man blasted himself with repulsors to take it down.

IRON MAN ARMOR MODEL 36

Iron Man used this armor to battle the Hulk which was a very brutal fight. It was heavily damaged by the collapse of Stark Tower; its remains were briefly possessed by the extradimensional demon named Zom. It was subsequently deactivated and was presumably salvaged by Stark Industries or S.H.I.E.L.D. later.

When Tony Stark undertook his reformed company Stark Resilient, a model of this armor was dismantled and melted.

“Iron Man Armor Model 36,” Marvel Database

ARMOR CAPABILITIES

  • Rockets to boost armor’s punches.
  • Injector loaded with anti-gamma radiation nanites.

“Iron Man Armor Model 36,” Marvel Database

IRON MAN ARMOR MODEL 44 (HEAVY DUTY)

When the Extremis virus was re-created by A.I.M. and sold around the world, Iron Man decided to hunt it down and destroy all the samples by any means.

Iron Man located one of the sample to a French catacomb where 13 superhumans were being created. Iron Man created the Heavy Duty armor in order to take down the superpowered individuals at the same time.

Later, Iron Man faced Hulk with the Heavy Duty Hulkbuster armor. Though Iron Man used all his arsenal, he was not successful and Hulk turned it into scrap.

IRON MAN ARMOR MODEL 52 (HULKBUSTER ARMOR)

The Hulkbuster Armor was next used by Iron Man when Captain Marvel rallied the Avengers to capture Bruce Banner. Due to his possession by the One Below All, the Hulk managed to easily overpower the team. The Hulkbuster’s repulsor beams had little effect on the Hulk, and the armor suffered critical manage with a single blow. After the Hulk tore off the armor’s arms, the suit suffered a cascading failure. Tony had to use the armor’s manual release to activate its ejection system. As soon as Tony ejected out of the armor using its detached helmet for propulsion, the armor exploded.

“Iron Man Armor Model 52,” Marvel Database

ARMOR CAPABILITIES

  • The armor appears as a flying car. It can be turned into a fully-functional Iron Man Armor at the push of a button.
  • Repulsor weaponry.
  • The ability to turn hands into a snare or a repulsor cannon.
  • Ability to self-repair.
  • Ejection system to detach helmet from body. Manual option available.
