Default Re: Is anyone else hoping they don't fight?

I would think that the idea of weight classes and such determining opponents and how they would fare against one another in a martial arts tournament is wholly irrelevant in this situation. Competitors are expecting their opponent to attempt to attack them in one way or another and can react appropriately. My point is that Superman was wholly unprepared in this situation, he did not expect Batman to make a move against him. I'm not saying Batman would beat the crap outta Supes, but he would able to get at least the one toss in. There's no Bat-god here, just one human with large cojones and excellent martial skills, and an alien relying on his reputation about his super powers to intimidate the unintimidatable. Any competent warrior will tell you the best attack is a surprise attack, even against a superior foe.
