Batman VS Superman by CharlesLogan Batman VS Superman by CharlesLogan
The Dark Knight versus The Man Of Steel.

As you might have noticed they are in their respective live action Nolan / Snyder outfits. I thought it'd be a nice take to see.

This piece was pretty much inspired by Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel and its animation adaption (which is done very beautifully, mind you). Hence why Batman's armor looks more metallic than rubbery.

The pose reference is from Jim Lee's Hush.

The Characters of Batman and Superman belong to DC Comics.

P.S. Also this marks my comeback after a hiatus, what's up guize!

you have done an amazing job on this piece. the detail is so great! It's also awesome how you used the latest costumes from the movie that will come out next year. Awesome job once again!

Really nice job on this. Can't wait for the movie.

I think it was kind of weird to let Superman's heat vision actually hit unless you want to say goodbye to Batman's legs.
Lol-Pretzel Featured By Owner May 7, 2014
Knowing Batman, he will have made himself armour that's heat-vision proof just for the occasion. Also a can of superman-repellent on his utility belt.

Not funny >_>

What's funny is taht you made this two months before it was announced that these are finally going to be in the same movie together!

A fantastic illustration depicting the World's Finest... as they're up against one another. I liked how you referenced Hush, which I hope DC will make an adaptation of in the future (perhaps in two parts like they did with The Dark Knight Returns Parts 1 and 2). And like adamisajoker5 mentioned, I believe you forgot the spikes on Batman's gauntlet(s). Other than that, your picture is a great piece regardless.

You forgot the spikes on Batman's gauntlets.

I just want to say: This is an awesome picture I love all the detailing on it ('specially since I can't do backgrounds ^^; )
and to the onlookers, Bruce Wayne is just a little less rich than Tony Stark, I'm sure he could afford to get his hands on a bit of Kryptonite... just my thoughts
TheNeonSalmon Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013
Great work and you have real talent!
But considering the fact that kryptonite is said to be an extremely rare element or whatever,a fight between Batman (a human with gadgets) and Superman (a muthafucka who can lift buildings) should last about 2 seconds. Just saying. I love both characters a ton but the idea that Batman would always have some sort of great fight with Superman is kinda silly. But just nit picking.
Agreed. Under most circumstances, it would end up like in the Graphic novel SACRIFICE, where Superman under the control of Maxwell Lord very nearly kills Batman.

And here we see Superman performing some impromptu laser knee surgery for the ailing Nolan-Batman! :lol:

Nice. This may be the only you'll see the movie version of Batman and Superman together.

I love this!~

Batman is my long-time favorite superhero, but as Superman was created to be invincible, there's not much a human (a badass human mind you) can really do against someone who, if they get a planet dropped on them, would still survive.

Wonderful piece!~

Batman with Kryptonite + Prep = Batman wins.

Batman without Kryptonite - Prep = Superman wins.

Good job.
kacript Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014
Kryptonite hasn't been introduced yet, if it ever will be that is.
qtprecure Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2014
Batman with kryptonite + Prep + Superman holding back=Barely surviving.

Fixed that for you.

Thank you. :)

Unless Batman has kryptonite, he doesn't stand a chance.

beautiful as always
This picture has more hair on its chest than Chuck Norris.

Batman stands no chance of winning, but fantastic art none the less!

Keep it up!
Rickmer Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
I agree. Short of dropping a nuke on Superman, there's not much that a human like Bruce can do.
tp9829 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013
even then superman is a powerhouse, who would shrug off a nuke like you or i would a chilly breeze!
also kryptonite requires time to work as it drains his powers, superman could just increase his powers (fly into the sun) and volla superman cannot be beat.

r u going to see the man of steel? This is epic
BadEnoughDude Featured By Owner May 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great work! I especially dig the scale texture of Superman's outfit.
