View Full Version : Bruce Wayne asks James Bond to temporarily take over as Batman

A run-down Batman is getting perilously close to a repeat of Knightfall. Knowing he has to slow down and get back into shape, he decides to take a one month leave of absence. He cannot leave Gotham unguarded, however.

Nightwing, Robin, and all other usual candidates for temporary fill in are not available (they're all off in another galaxy fighting some cosmic menace). The only person available to help Bruce is James Bond, Agent 007, an old acquaintance of his temporarily on leave from duty with MI6. For reasons unknown to us, Bond is privy to Bruce's secrets, so there's nothing for Bruce to hide.

Bruce turns over all his resources (the costume, cave, vehicles, utility belt, and other gadgets) to Bond and asks him to fill in for a month. Is Bond up to it? Does he have what it takes to fill in for Batman for a month?

Note: this Bond is either the Sean Connery version or the Daniel Craig version.

Should we assume he insisted on the "no killing" part?
Because James Bond kills criminals more often than Frank Castle.

I think Bond would be pretty much lost if he had to operate under Batman rules. All he really knows how to do is kill people.

Bond will call in Superman and the League to deal with male criminals while he sleeps with all the females ones.

Well, Bond is legally allowed to kill them. He is, essentially, a government assassin. "Double-Zero" status means that one essentially has a level of diplomatic immunity, and if you kill in the line of duty, then you have the full protection fo the British government and legal affairs at your back.

So yes, Bond will be able to kill them and get away with it. He's a pretty damned good investigator, much less without MI6's computer network to back him up and all of Bruce's contacts.

Bond will finally rid Bruce of Joker by sleeping with Harley Quinn. Joker will then spray Bond in the face with acid and Quinn will hit Joker in the back of the head with a mallet... a spiked mallet... a poisonous, spiked mallet that shoots Africanized bees.

What's being wanked there? The part where Bond beds women or the part where Joker and Quinn are crazy people who kill? Either way... t'was a joke.

I don't know how he'd do,but I do know there's going to be a major scandal in the superheo community when Poison Ivy,Talia Al Ghul,Nocturna,Harley Quinn,and even Orca claim "Batman" is the father of their child,not that matters,doesn't matter he'll probably die of over a billion differnt STD's(I mean,god, I'm suprised Bond hasn't been on the Maury show with over1,00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000000000000

All the jokes aside, Bond is a womanizer that goes through women like candy and brooks no amount of mental attachment to any of them. He's quite good at sleeping with women to get them to do something for him or get them to go turncoat. He's an unemotional bastard. He can legally kill, and is quite apt to. He also knows a fair bit about torture and interrogation.

With Batman + MI6 Toys, I see him doing fairly well in Gotham. First order of business is sneak into Arkham and blow the brains out of everyone incarcerated there. Then, just a matter of staking out the remaining Rogues and finishing them.

Except for the "OHMSS" where He did get married. I did influence the Opening Gambit of Diamonds are Forever why Bond was on a War path for Blofeld.

I can See Bond using Batman's Weapons and Not killing....Well okay He would still have his gun, but he could only aim for kneecaps, and hands.

He maybe wouldnt do so hot against the real Metahumans, but the sideshow Freaks and Evil smart Guys like, Killer Croc, Joker, Ra's Al Ghul, Riddler, and Pengiun are really only a hop skip and a jump away from what he normally fights.

So all in All Bond does an decent Job of Defending Gotham.

To be fair, Bond has doone pretty well against some blatantly metahuman opponents in fights. He's very good at improvising and using his environment to his advantage, and has pretty insane damage soak.

Jaws, Oddjob, anyone?

Wouldn't Croc be to far above Bond's weight class? IIRC Croc's skin is bulletproof.

He's also got some level of super-strength. And is tough enough to give Bane (on Venom!) a decent fight (re: Knightfall).

He never beat Jaws, he just *survived* to live another day. In the end they became "friends" when Bond got Goldfinger to say Jaws' girfriend would have to die because she wasn't good enough for his "Master Race".

Oddjob died via electrocution. If Bond hadn't been able to improvise in that scenario he would have died.

Btw, when I said "Goldfinger" I meant the character, not the movie. But you're right it was Blofeld not him.

And if he survives, there's Clayface, Mr. Freeze, Scarcrow, Fire Fly, (etc...).
Or gets killed while having sex with Catwoman. Either way.

I don't think he will do that good at al. He is skilled, but no even close to batman inteligence, speed, or strength. As for Joker, if its The Batman version, he will not win that fight at all. That joker can go toe to toe with bats himself. Same with Mr. Freeze. Accually, most of the bad guys in The Batman seem stronger than their other versions.

Bond actually has some advantages over Batman:

-Bond will do things Batman won't to get the job done, killing being the most
obvious one. Within the first week, a few Bat-villains find themselves sniped, car bombed and their hideouts booby-trapped.

-Bond has insane luck and improvisation skills, which Batman abandoned long ago in favor of prep. Bond is an anti-prep God.

-Bond is a pimp. Harley will turn on Joker and free Bond from his trap. Bond nails the other female rogues, thus sealing their fate soon after.

As someone pointed out on another thread, Composite James Bond rapes them.

Between the video games, 20+ movies, James Bond Junior, the FPS's..

Bond can casually go through armies of dozens of genetically engineered supersoldiers with a frigging Walther that ha sa Silencer. He can sneak through a frigging Embassy guarded by SAS soldiers and incapacitate them one by one without setting off an alarm. his stamina is insane.

In my opinion, yes, that's pretty much a given, especially now that the film series has been rebooted with Casino Royale. I would also add that book-version Bond also needs to be broken down between those novels written by Ian Fleming and the later stuff (which I think of as fanfction) penned by other authors such as John Gardner.

And ther ei smovie Bond.

Of course it seems that the newest Bond, is trying to be faithful to the book series.

And in alll hoensty I can see this happening.

"How did you do it?

It's a bit complicated...

First of all, Casino Royale is a reboot of the series, so that is standalone so far.

Although there's some debate, Sean Connery to Roger Moore is definitely suppose to be the same guy. The whole SPECTER angle, Bond getting married, and then Blofeld killing Teresa Bond almost immediately (in Her Majesty's Secret Mission played by George Lazenby), in For Your Eye Only, "Blofeld" was killed via Spider-Man Clone Saga style. The rights to SPECTER was tied up, so they couldn't use Blofeld's name, but it's obviously him.

It's a bit more muddy between Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan, since there wasn't a direct link for anything. The Felix Leiter angle is the only thing that connects Timothy Dalton with older movies (Leiter is crippled in License to Kill, and his wife was raped and murdered). There's certainly homages from Pierce Brosnan's final film Die Another Day. Remember when Bond is in the underground hideout, he finds the new Q (John Cleese taking over for Desmond Llewelyn, as the latter was getting up there in years), he finds homages from all the previous 19 movies. And his remarks about the new watch ("The 20th, I believe").

The timeline for the character is similar to comics. Comics usually have a huge upgrade every few years or for major arcs (like Civil War or Infinite Crisis) where real-life modern tech is introduced. Cell phones, pagers, DVDs, etc.. Comics uses a condensed time, but Bond is definitely more of a surreal world where things happen for the sake of the entertainment.

It's also worth noting that in the 60s Casino Royale movie, and elderly James Bond gets on to M for giving his name and number to a brash young man (and basically describes Connery) and later in the film six or seven other agents are assigned the name and number "James Bond 007."

All in all, it's best not to think too much about it.

Goldeneye also acknowledges the placement of a new M (Judi Dench).

Excepting the 2006 Casino Royale, I consider all the Bonds to be the same continuity, merely with "updates" as you mentioned.

The old Casino Royale was a spoof movie, and not part of canon. Also, Never Say Never Again, the Thunderball remake in 1983 starring an older Sean Connery is not part of canon either.
