The Justice League is made up of some of the most powerful individuals in the DC Universe. Between those who can travel to other universes at speed alone, or those who have the power to fight alien armies single-handedly, the team doesn’t exactly want power. But of the members of the Justice League, it’s Superman who usually takes the crown as the team’s number one powerhouse. Since he first burst onto the superhero scene, the feats he’s capable of have only gotten more impressive. There’s no denying that there is real talent on the team, but few who can match Superman in raw power.

Batman Dark Knight Returns Armor Black Adam DC Comics

Comic fans will recognize Batmans everywhere Dark Knight returns Armor. It appeared in the dramatic showdown between Batman and Superman and helped give the aging Bruce a chance against Clark. While Frank Miller’s classic Batsuit wasn’t originally a canon suit, it has appeared in the Prime Earth DC universe as something Batman only ever brings out against a high-level threat. So when Batman unwraps that particular armor against Black Adam, it’s a pretty solid endorsement of just how powerful the anti-hero really is.

It’s hard to really measure something as unquantifiable as a hero’s true power level. To tell a compelling story, Superman or any other hero is as strong as they need to be. But the armor that Batman wore The dark knight returns is something he only uses against something far more powerful than himself. So if he’s willing to wear a variation of this to confront Black Adam, it shows how much he sees the man as a threat. He might not accept superman himself, but the antihero gets a decent endorsement thanks to him Batman in Black Adam #6 available everywhere.
