Captain America spent several months in combat training, almost four years in combat as the government's top special operative in one of the largest wars in the history of the world, and has divided his time in the last ten or so years between coordinating atacks against giant monsters, alien dictators, and meglomaniacle terrorists with The Avengers and serving as one of the world's top special operatives against The Red Skull, Zemo, AIM, HYDRA, and other such threats with the U.S. government and S.H.E.I.L.D. Batman doesn't have an overwhelming advantage over Cap. Also, as I said, the number of styles you know doesn't make you a better fighter. It just means you're very anal retentive and like to waste training time.

Tactically and analytically, yes. As is Cap.

Gross exageration.

Batman isn't in League with Reed either. At least, not in Reed's feild. And Reed isn't in League with Bruce in his feild. Reed is a scientist. Physics, inventing, those are his areas of expertese. Bruce belongs in the realm of tactical and analytical thinking. They're not comperable. Cap and Batman, however, are, seeing as how they're both highly inteligent tactical and analytical thinkers.
