The following is part of a series pitting the merits and abilities of similar characters against each other. We open with a disclosure of the personal bias of the author then outline some ground rules and end with an example of how a fight between the two might unfold.

Ground rules: Each fighter is equipped with normal gadgetry, but no vehicles. The Batman depicted is that of the comics. The arena is a futuristic version of Gotham at dusk, a blend of each character’s home field.

Personal bias: I never really understood why Boba Fett was such a praised character considering his short time on screen along with the fact that Han Solo dispatched him by so easily it was by accident. In my mind, he is the only original character to benefit from the prequels. His father’s battle with Obi-One was pretty sweet and I’ll assume those traits and weapons were inherited by Boba.

So Boba is cool, but Batman is Batman. Bruce Wayne is one of my top five favorite characters of all time. ‘The Dark Knight,’ the comic book ‘The Killing Joke’ and most episodes of ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ is solid gold.

Fight! Batman blends in amongst the gargoyles above the city as he scans the horizon with his bat-noculars. He notices a slight glow from a rooftop about a block westward. Batman suspects the glow is not an oversight of his opponent and takes it as a lure into a trap.
Boba Fett scans the cityscape with the scope of his sniper laser, paying special attention to the low-light flare he placed on the neighboring building. Fett is set up in the window of a dark room overlooking the flare. The opposite window and door of the room are fitted with trip wires. He watches in silence as night approaches when he hears a quiet thud.

Fett curses himself for missing it. Was that the sound of Batman landing on the roof? Then he sees a figure descend upon the flare. Fett takes his shot, and then another. His target rams into an antenna tower and collapses onto the flare. With a burst from his rocket pack, Fett leaps from his nest and towards the rooftop to confirm the kill.

On his way down he has a clearer view of the happenings. There is a cable hooked onto the antenna tower which could account for the thud when it connected. Batman must have rode the cable down from another building. Fett lands directly onto his prey and feels no substance. It is only his cape, no man!

Seemingly out of nowhere Batman is on Fett. Fett reaches for his blaster, Batman kicks it away. The two brawlers wrestle each other to the ground with Batman retaining the advantage. Fett engages his rocket pack to avoid being pinned, and to his surprise, Batman takes a cue to discontinue the brawl and roll for cover. The rockets ignite the severed fuel lines. Fett notices the nitro-soaked Batarang too late. Ka-boom!

Result: Batman wins with only a burnt cape and cowl.
