    The "Chinese Samurai" from Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story would own them both.

    And also incredibly ridiculous and absurd at the same time ;)

    Of course, that movie was such a bastardization of Bruce Lee's life that it was a comedy to me.

    Marvel’s Shang-chi (master of kung fu) was really in fact Bruce lee
    So next time please compare a fictional character such as the batman with another fictional character

    Because I hate it when you guys compare real people such as Bruce lee to fictional characters such as Spiderman or the batman
    When you do that it makes you seem like you guys are ******ed or something.

    Anyway in respect for the “real people” I think that Bruce lee would have kick batman's butt to seven heavens the same way Muhammad Ali once kick Superman's

    Well you're right considering this was supposed to be a bio of Bruce Lee's life, not Iron Monkey or Kung Fu Hustle.

    Just saying the words "Chinese Samurai" makes me want to punch something.

    Don't get me started on the inaccuracies of Dragon, I will not stop for a week.

    Yeah, you have a good point. How about Batman vs. Bruce Lee's character from Enter the Dragon?(whatever his name was)

    I’ve read some book about Bruce lee and it seems to reveal that Bruce lee wasn't nearly as strong as those characters he played in his movies.

    Some of the article I’ve read stated that is was ridiculous for people to assume that Bruce lee could've beaten a real athlete such as Muhammad Ali.

    You guys must understand it was the 60’s and the debut of the70’s. People were easier to fool back then.
    If Sylvester Stallone played the Rambo back then.
    Lots of people would have believed that he could really do all the things he did in those Rambo movies (which means taking on an entire army all by himself.)
    LOL
    And they would have also believed him to be the greatest boxer ever, and not even Muhammad Ali could’ve stood a chance against him.
    It would have been the same for Arnold Schwarzenegger too. People would have perceived as being this bad Mother ****er invincible Superman that he usually portrayed in his movies.

    Bruce lee had to live to the expectation of the people who believed in him and those overtraining session with a couple of marijuana cake muffin lead to his demise.


    Did you guys knows that Chuck Norris had once beaten Bruce lee in a real Martial art competition
    But to those Bruce lee fans out there it doesn’t really count because they always believed that Bruce Lee was too tired at the time he fought Chuck Norris in that competition.

    In a wonderfully innovative screenwriting decision, Bruce Lee's character in Enter the Dragon was named, simply, "Lee".

    :o

    Norris never beat Bruce Lee in a martial arts competition. Lee never competed officially. Norris was a student of Bruce Lee's during the late 60's.

    As to your comments about Sijo Lee going up against a "Real athlete." I was unaware that Bruce Lee WASN'T a real athlete. He trained fanatically seven days a week. He injured his back weight-lifting, not at some underground pride fight (which never happened, by the way). He was as much of an athlete as Ali, Foreman, or any professional athlete today.

    I agree that as time passes, things get overblown and "legendary". This is true for anything you read about Bruce Lee. There are more contradictory accounts of his life, training, and philosophy than any famous figure I have encountered save Christ himself. It's ridiculous.

    Bruce Lee admitted himself he could not beat Ali, he used to train to tapes of Ali but was never able to match Ali's hand speed

    I think Batman knows more different forms of combat than Lee.

    In a ring with rules-absolutly.On the street, Lee would have slaughtered Ali.

    He did in fact train to tapes of Ali to study his techniques.As far as speed,Lee was faster than Ali.

    Well said Matches.Was Lee as good as good as he has been hyped to be?It's hard to say-he never competed.However, the fact that the top 3 martial art champions of the 60's(Joe Lewis,Mike Stone and Chuck Norris) came to him for training( before his movie fame) says a hell of a lot.Especially with guys like Joe Lewis and Mike Stone who walk the walk and were known as the premiere bad boys of the sport.Their attitude was "don't tell me,show me".

    It's also wrth noting that Lee himself considered 99% of martial arts to be bull**** when it comes to real fighting.He worked his ass off to create a science(which he named Jeet Kune Do) that would cut to the heart of the matter and end a fight quickly.Did he succeed?No.Was he the real deal?For sure.

    If you look at Batman and Daredevils fighting "styles"-they are representations of what Lee was creating himself to be in the late 60's.The idea is not to accumulate as manyfighting techniques as possible,but to see the common denominater in these techniques and use that to your full potential.At the end of the day ,fighting is fighting-and yes while there is a science to it- that science lies in timing,elusiveness and speed.

    Ali was a perfect example-not the strongest or hardest or even biggest fighter, but he had the timing and brains to defeat much more powerful and meaner guys.

    ^ Very well said. One of my instructor's favorite lines goes like this: "Why do you think 99% of all martial arts has the same kick? The same punch? The human body is the same for everybody on the planet. 2 arms, 2 legs. There's a finite way of moving those limbs effectively."

    ****! You dumbass, are you high? Of course he isn't real. But what is the point of even reading comics if you are grounded in reality like that? Suspension of disbelief dude, you know what that means?:batman:

    Well I've only seen Enter the Dragon (but like four times now)
    But I do know that Bruce Lee was Hong Kong's Cha Cha Dance Champion in 1958 (totally serious)
    Because of that I vote Lee.

    Indeed he was Flashbug ;)

    Also,i consider Lee to be the foreunner/originator of modern day aerobics- he was incorporating musical rhythms into his training and using it familiarize himself with aspects of fluidity and broken rhytm in combat.
