16 SWAMP THING (STRONGER)
Swamp Thing has a bit of a cult following in the DC comics universe. At one point being written by Alan Moore, Swamp Thing’s dark nature drew in many older fans looking for a little more edge.
It may not come as a surprise that Swamp Thing is a very powerful monster, but many were in disbelief when he took down Batman.
Swamp Thing #53 saw the larger-than-life swamp dweller make quick work of the Bat, though he did so in the name of love. Swamp Thing’s wife had been taken into custody by Gotham police, leading to some pretty intense panels.
15 SCARECROW (WEAKER)
Scarecrow has garnered a decent following among Batman fans. From his appearances in graphic novels like As the Crow Flies, on the small screen in Batman: The Animated Series, or in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins, the deranged former psychologist has a knack for using fear to get the best of his opposition.
Without his fear toxin, however, the Scarecrow doesn’t stand a chance against the Bat. In Batman Begins, we see that Batman not only found a way to work around the chemical attack, but he even turned the fear toxin back on the villain.
With a limited amount of control on his weaponry and no real backup plan, Scarecrow has his work cut out for him in the villain realm.
