Batman vs Pennywise: Here's Who Would Win

Batman fighting a clown isn’t something new or unheard of, but a shapeshifting demon clown? Now that might be a little different from his green-haired arch-nemesis. Will he be able to take down Pennywise the clown, or will his fate end like the children Pennywise feeds off of?


Batman Powers And Abilities

Ready or not, Batman always rises to the challenge.

When Gotham is threatened, the city’s citizens can always rely on Batman to save them. Fighting a crazed clown, solving an impossible puzzle, or bringing a giant zombie to his knees, the Dark Knight won’t let his city down.

When he’s not watching over the city from his favorite gargoyle, he’s Bruce Wayne, the billionaire orphan in charge of Wayne Enterprise, his father’s old company. Using his extensive wealth, peak physical body, and genius mind, he’s made not only Gotham but the whole world a much better place. 

He’s funded teams like the Justice League and the Teen Titans, and he’s used his company Wayne Enterprise to research and develop incredible solutions to the world’s problems. There’s very little this mortal man can’t do.

Pennywise Powers And Abilities

The Clown Prince of Derry!

A cosmic spirit of consumption born in the void known as the Macroverse, Pennywise also know simply as IT has terrorized humanity for eternity, feeding off of their darkest fears. Appearing every 27 years to feed off of the children of Derry, this shapeshifting demon usually takes the form of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Feeding off of fear, IT enjoys toying with its victims before killing them. IT is not mortal, in fact, IT isn’t even in this universe, IT’s outside it. The clown’s physical form is merely a projection of IT’s being which is still outside of the universe. The only known being to be able to destroy IT is the Turtle, the creator of Steven King’s Universe.

How the Battle Would Go Down

A battle no mere mortal could survive, but can Batman? IT feeds off of the fear of others, and I highly doubt he could ever scare the likes of Batman. Bruce has undergone years of emotional training to allow him to control his mind and emotions perfectly. Making Batman scared would not be an easy task, even for a higher being like Pennywise the Clown.

IT doesn’t need to scare Batman to kill him, however, he has plenty of power without Bruce being scared of any form he could come up with. Even with his trained mind, Batman still has his work cut out for him.

While IT couldn’t mind control Batman due to his unbreakable will, he can still physically harm him, especially if they were to fight in hand to hand combat. Pennywise has superhuman speed and strength which would render Batman’s 127 martial arts he mastered practically useless. 

Even if they weren’t to fight in hand to hand, IT can control the world around him. Bringing an army of weak-willed civilians to aid him in this battle, which Batman would struggle to fight without harming any of them, or he could even create horrible weather to drown or blow Batman away. Bruce is practically up against a god.

Pennywise has even declared himself that he sees humans as lesser beings and only the creator of the Universe, the Turtle is his equal. Batman may be a genius with peak-human endurance, speed, and strength, but we have to remember the keyword “peak-human”.


And The Winner Is...

Pennywise. If IT wills it, Batman will die in an instant. He simply couldn’t take on such a being with omnipotent powers.
