He is DC’s greatest superhero. But there are indeed X-Men heroes who would make for a better Batman replacement in the Justice League.
Wolverine, like Batman, is a martial arts legends. Many are deceived by his grumpy attitude and gruff exterior but Logan knows literally every martials arts techniques in existence. That superhuman longevity of his allowed him to travel far and wide, learning the intricacies of close combat from every corner of the world. Some claim he even knows some extra-terrestrial fighting etchniques he picked up from the Shi’Ar Empire.
Warpath is of Native American background. He is a mutant with superhuman physical attributes. Other than that Warpath also uses a pair of vibranium coated bowie knives. He uses them with lethal efficiency in battle. A team player and leader, Warpath would make for a great Justice League member.
At first glance, Cypher looks like a weak individual with a rather useless ability. His mutant ability allows him to decipher anything. But it is an incredibly versatile ability. Cypher has used it to read body language and predict opponent’s moves mid battle. He could even use it to find out structural weaknesses, fight multiple enemies at once, learn any language, break any code, and even predict the future.
Like Batman, Warren Worthington III inherits a huge fortune from his parents. His mutant ability gives him a pair of wings and peak human physical conditions. After becoming Archangel. Warren’s powers also include a pair of metal wings that could throw its feathers in the form of sharp projectiles. And to be honest, he would make for a much better night time silhouette than the Batman.
His feline physiology already makes him a formidable fighter. In addition to his close combat proficiency, Beast is also a genius in the field of genetics and biochemistry. Hank McCoy is also the owner to a small fortune. This makes him a rather attractive replacement for Batman.
Throw anything at Deadpool and he would come back undefeated. Sure the guy’s psychotic and deranged. But we are comparing him to a guy who wears a bat themed costume and runs around beating criminals in the night. Bane might break his back. The Joker might spray Joker Venom on his face. Ra’s Al Ghul may slice him to pieces. Deadpool will never back down.
David Alleyne has psychomimetic mutant abilities. He could absorb the knowledge and skills of any person in close proximity. H studied extensively under Professor X, later losing his powers after M-Day. He currently possesses the knowledge of almost the entire mutant population. Imagine, a being with the combined knowledge in science and strategy of Professor X, Beast, Wolverine, Cyclops, Forge, and Magneto. Prodigy is basically Batman on adrenaline.
Thanks to his teleportation abilities, Nightcrawler has been an incredible asset to the X-Men. he has helped bail them out of dangerous situations and infiltrated deadly organizations on the X-Men’s behalf. His physiology allows him to cling to steep surfaces and provides him with extreme agility, a prerequisite for a fighter that sticks to the shadows.
Sage, just like Batman, relies not on firepower or superpowers to get the job done. That big beautiful brain of hers is enough. Sage’s mutant ability gives her a brain faster than a super computer. She is also an information maverick and computer genius. Her skills in close combat are also not to be taken lightly.
Last but not the least, we have Laura Kinney aka X-23. Just like her ‘father’, Laura Kinney is blessed with a Godlike healing factor. But she is said to be faster, stronger, quicker, and an overall better version of Wolverine. If she replaces Batman in Justice League, it is basically game over for all criminal scum.
