I think most of us can agree that Wolverine and Batman have tons of bullshit wins under their belt. Both go around growling about how tough they are and have taken out some serious contenders, but nothing makes me more happy than seeing either of them get beat down. Lets list a few examples of unexpected beatdowns taken by Wolverine and Batman. *I know Wolverine gets whooped all the time, that's his M.O. because of his healing factor so lets list other heroes beating him down... 1. I loved the recent Namor KO of Wolverine. Namor gets stabbed and shruggs it off then knocks Wolverine the fuck out. 2. Way back in Infinity War, Wonderman beat Wolverine to a pulp. Knocked him all over the fucking place, there was at least 8 panels dedicated to Wolerine getting pwned. 3. Cap telling Wolverine to STFU and KOing him in Enemy of the State was nice. Wolvie didn't have a chance because he'd been fighting for days but it was still pretty sweet. I don't read too much Batman but the example on the 'superman is a d1ck' thread is nice.

Spider Woman punking Wolverine was total bullshit though. The only reason that happened is because Bendis couldn't come up with a better way to introduce how tough Spiderwoman is. I thought that one was pretty lame. Spiderman flicking Wolverine away like a gnat in Secret Wars was pretty funny though.

Wolverines avenged the majority of his losses twice over.He's a great character imo he just gets writers who hate him screwing him over.

i agree with red on this, wolverine really gets thrown to the dogs with the writers that hate him, he is a good character, just over used and over exposed. but as a life long fan of wolverine i will agree the stupid win he has is over lobo, but that was due to the fans

Yeah,alot of people hate on Wolverine when he is one of the greatest characters ever created. Wolverine doesn't write Wolverine's storyline,writers do.

matt murdock-".....1. I loved the recent Namor KO of Wolverine. Namor gets stabbed and shruggs it off then knocks Wolverine the fuck out."------------------------------------------Actually Namor gets stabbed and he down (as in out of the picture). Wolverine then has to contend w/ Namor's goons. Namor then recovers and hits Wolverine from behind while Wolverine is bust w/ others. Not saying that Namor couldn't pull off a win, but this one isn't a clean win. Needing help and still having to resort to a sucker punch (after getting stabbed and tossed aside like a bitch) is nothing to be proud of. The writer of Wonder Man was trying his hardest to make Wonderman popular and relevent...Easiest way to do this ? Write him beating up on someone more badass and popular. Wolverine has gone several rounds w/ the Hulk (Wonderman never could), has beaten the Thing and wendigo. I don't think he's worried about Wonderman. As for Captain America....He's one of my favorites, but Wolverine had just finished taking on a mess of heroes and taken major damage (not to mention the fact he aided in his own defeat by trying to fight off the Hand's influence). He was already sign , sealed, and delivered by the time Cap got to him. Jarvis the butler could have done the same. Cap has NEVER had a clean decisive victory over Wolverine. Meanwhile Wolverine has beaten cap in his own book, beaten most recently in Wolverine:Origins, and fought him to a draw on at least 2 other occasions. Wolverine is not unbeatable, but these are weak examples.

"spider woman trashed wolverine in the new avengers. punisher punked wolverine repeatedly in his marvel knights series. shot his face off, shot his balls off, blew all of his lower torso away... "-----------------------------------------Bendis flat out admitted in an interview that he did that soley to make SpiderWoman look cool. He figured the best way to introduce a cool character is to have him/her beat up the coolest character on the team. His words. Wolverine got his revenge on Punisher a few months later in his own book. aside from beating his ass he outted punisher as a homosexual (found his stash of gay porn).He's also owned punisher on a few occasions prior.

"Spiderman flicking Wolverine away like a gnat in Secret Wars was pretty funny though."------Ridiculous fight where Spidey beats Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, Rogue, Collossus, and Proff. X........Just silly. Proff. X alone would beat him w/ a thought. Meanwhile Wolverine has at least 2 other wins over Spidey.

Agreed that Wolverine is a greay character victimized by HORRIBLE writers. It all started w/ Larry Hama .

Characters grow into there abilities thats all. Supermans way worse than Wolvie for that stuff.

but daredevil you would have to say that all characters, for the most part, grow into their ability over time. His healing factor has become quite the story line hole filler but at the same time I think some writers use it to try to turn something intangible like toughness into something tangible, so they use his healing factor to do so.

Hal Jordan knocked Batman down, but not out. Bats returned the favor shortly thereafter.

Superman may be the worst (American) for power inflation, BUT he has remained very stable during the time that I have been reading comics.

Deathstroke has beat Batman's ass a couple of times, in straight up hand to hand combat. Grendel outsmarted Batman and beat him up, and could have killed him several times in their crossover. Evenw when BAtman used his lame smoke bombs and ambushed Grendel, he couldn't beat him.

Grendel outsmarted Batman and beat him up IIRC, that was Grendel Prime. Batman gave Hunter Rose all Rose could handle and even unmasked him....and both times were under Wagner's pen, weren't they?
