While he doesn't have any superpowers, Batman has no issues holding his own. His punches are like being hit with a brick, and a new video examines just how powerful the Dark Knight is.
In the newest addition to his "How Strong" series, Comic Books vs The World puts the spotlight on the DCEU Batman. Using formulas and WB's own "Anatomy of a Punch" featurette to establish the force of Batman's punches, the number arrived at is 220.11 Newtons. That translates to being hit with 49 pounds of force from just one punch. His lifting power is also impressive, as he's seen throwing guys around the room in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and going off of the average body weight of 194.7 lbs, that's a hefty feat.
He's also seen breaking a neck with relative ease, something that takes a force of up to 337 pounds of force to accomplish. His training montage reveals even more, including the fact that he can pull a tractor tire across the ground that weighs around 600 pounds. Once he puts on the armor he becomes even more powerful, or as the stats point to here, 28 times more powerful.
You can view the entire video above, and the synopsis for Justice League below.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K.
