I've read all of these. You seem to have this very weird idea that a win means Bats is down or dead by Supes' hands. No. Just... no.

    That was Batman's choice, not Superman's. The only "victory" is Batman's since he robbed Superman the chance to finish him by committing suicide. Not a win for Superman. Read the comic.

He robbed Superman of nothing, because Superman was the reason he suicided. Bats made that choice, why? Because he was defeated. Win for Superman.

    How so? When the fight ends, both opponents are still standing. In fact, I read the comic and the scene cuts away to Lex Luthor. So the last thing we see is Batman and Superman having a stare down. Batman wasn't even down on the ground. He was simply staring at Superman by the end of that fight. Batman didn't even look battered and bruised. That's like claiming Mike Tyson won a fight by pounding on the guy, the other dude tries fighting back and then the bell rings with both opponents still standing having a stare down. No offense, but that's ridiculous. No one wins a fight by having a stare down when both opponents are still standing. No one. It's not a win. Read the comic.

IOW, it ends with Batman basically admitting defeat. Superman wins.

    Read the comic. Batman did no such thing. The inner dialogue of the comic makes it clear Batman wanted to talk, Superman didn't. Batman fought only because he was forced to. Not a win.

Batman states factually that they cannot win. That is throwing in the towel. The idea that it's not a win for Superman is absurd.
