At last week’s Comic-Con in San Diego, it was announced that director Zack Snyder would serve as referee for the biggest cinematic superhero battle of our time. On one side, the Man of Steel, who led his film of the same name to box-office glory last month. On the other, Batman, a mere mortal whose most recent incarnations — Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight movies — were both a critical and financial smash. The intended winners of Batman vs. Superman: us. (The real winner: Warner Bros.)

Superman and Batman can carry their own stories. These American icons have done so in comic books for 70 years and on the big screen for half that time. But it seems almost inevitable in our comic-book-consumed cinema that the two would eventually meet. They nearly did; Warner Bros. sounded a fanfare when it hired Troy director Wolfgang Petersen to helm a Batman vs. Superman in 2002, only to abandon the concept in favor of Nolan’s pitch. (Though the planned epic manifested itself as a now-infamous Easter egg in the 2007 film I Am Legend.) Now that Snyder is set to bring both heroes together in the same movie, we’ve taken a look back at their long history to figure out what story lines might influence the movie and, more important, to answer the question: How could Batman ever beat Superman? Isn’t that pretty much impossible? Read on.

New York World's Fair Comics (1940)
Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, became an instant classic when he debuted in Action Comics #1 on April 18, 1938. In hopes of replicating the freshly minted icon's success, artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger created Batman. The pulp-inspired crime fighter swooped into the pages of Detective Comics #27 on May 1939 and immediately matched Superman's popularity. Pairing the two titans was an inevitable business move for Action Comics publisher National Allied, who was in the process of merging with Detective Comics Inc. One year after his debut, Batman shared the spotlight with Superman on the cover of a 1940 New York World's Fair anthology comic. This format — Superman and Batman in the same issue, but with separate stories — would eventually be spun off into the World’s Finest title.
