CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

It’s been debated since the movie came out, but it turns out Superman versus Batman wouldn’t be a fair fight.

Well, duh!

Now a new seven year (yes, seven years!) University of Leicester study confirms Superman is the most equipped superhero.

Who would have thought that a guy who has super strength, super speed, and the ability to fly would be most equipped, right?

In other news, water is wet and the sky is blue.

The Man of Steel ranks ahead of Wolverine, Thor, Mystique and Flash.

Batman might be one of the most popular heroes in pop culture, but he’s also the most ill equipped to be a super hero.

Researchers say his total lack of super powers is a major down fall.
