5. Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
"“Young lady, I assure you. There’s no amount of greasy cheese bread that could surpass my abilities. – Alfred Pennyworth"
Recently, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been crossing over with everyone. They’ll be mixing it up with the Street Fighters and have a crossover with Stranger Things in separate comic books. Before that happened, the Ninja Turtles ended up in Gotham City and met Batman. While the Dark Knight wasn’t the first hero that the turtles met outside of their universe, this adventure was definitely the best.
When crossovers like this happen, it’s easy to mess things up. When the turtles met the Power Rangers in live-action show, it was bad. This, on the other hand, may have been even better than the comic and that says a lot.
Everything about Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was executed well, particularly the fight between Shredder and Batman. When this came out, it was easily the comic book movie fight of the year. The final battle in Avengers: Endgame was good, but this was better. These are some of the best fighters in comics and their encounter disappoint. The fun continued when the Turtles fought mutated versions of Gotham’s villains. The only disappointing part is we’ll likely never see a Jokerized Shredder in action.
