Open area, reasonably well lit (a busy harbour keeps working 24/7). Bats has some advantages, with cover and height, but Ollie can take him out with one hit, and this isn't crowded enough for Bats to avoid his aim.

 

Green Arrow for the win.

I think Batman is over-rated as well (I like the character well enough, but some things are just too out there) and as a character I actually prefer Green Arrow but c'mon ... the original can't lose to an homage.  It's just bad form. "Like Batman, with a bow!" was basically the pitch.

 

If bullet slinging adversaries like Deadshot and Deathstroke haven't beaten the Bat then why would someone with an inferior ranged weapon?

And believe it or not, GA was not an homage to Batman. He was simply another in the long line of Mystery MenĀ® that were all the rage at that time. He eventually glommed on to a lot of the same shtick as Batman, but that was something that came later.

I'm not familiar with the earliest incarnations of the character (wikipedia seems to have my back, but actual knowledge is better) so if they actually retooled the character after he'd been around for a while to get in on the Batman action (sidekick, special car, billionaire, hidden cave lair, etc) then I misspoke with 'homage'...

 

I should have said 'copycat'.

 

Either way while it's not a surprising final round I do wish it had been more interesting.  Let the whims of fate decide the outcome - I'll happily grant that ignoring the fourth wall stuff they're evenly matched enough that random chance SHOULD be the decider in a true fight between them.

I have his first appearances if you would like to read them. Be warned they are...not good. Comics from 1942 leave something to be desired.

No doubt. There's more than one writer on the Cracked website that banks on that and they're some of my favorite articles. 

 

I'll pass and be glad that they took the character in a different, different direction from said days - as I said, I do genuinely like the modern interpretation of the character (especially as portrayed in the DC animated universe) and have long considered him proof that regardless of original intent (or 'reworked' intent) a good writer can make the character their own entity (for good or for bad - see Deadpool vs Deathstroke).
