I recently saw that saying used in a youtube match-up where the speaker compared two marvel characters. In my opinion Batman as more fight (in this sense of the word) in him than Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, etc. In recent times Aquaman has come close.

But using Batman as a baseline, him being with him being 100, where would you put other DC or Marvel characters?

For example,

Batman: 100

Aquaman: 95

Nightwing: 90
Wonder Woman: 90

Superman: 75
(I'd have Captain America near here too.)

Cyborg: 70

How about the Flash, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther, Spiderman, Hawkeye, X-Men, Fantastic Four, JSA, rest of JL, etc.?

This isn't who would win in a fight, or who has the most fighting skill, just who has most "fight" in them.

To me it isn't about going up against overwhelming odds...every superhero does that...but its about after you've taken a beating, and anyone else would be KO'd, unable to rise, etc. and you keep coming.

OR, its about being in the thick of combat and using the battlefield to your advantage.

I don't think Bats is the highest in this. Batman is good at removing himself from combat and prepping vs. a weakness, but without that plan, Killer Croc is really dangerous...
So, by that criteria, I put Cap ahead of Bats....some others to note...

The whole Champion vs. Thing boxing match highlighted Thing as the top of the heap there.

Superman's fight with Doomsday was a good example, and Thor has more than his fair share of these showings.

Actually, for about 4 years, I'd have put Green Arrow above Bats...when he was gritty and tough, but that was a short lived phenomenon.

For some reason, I see Wildcat above Bats in this regard as well.
