Batman is often known as The World's Greatest Detective, a moniker he earns by beating up mentally ill supervillains in the streets of Gotham City while dressed in a bat costume. The Flash, on the other hand, actually works in a crime lab, so you can see why he may want to lay claim to the mantle instead.
In next week's Flash #64, continuing the crossover between Batman and The Flash, these two heroes share their own private thoughts on the matter via caption box. For Barry Allen, it's no question: Batman is the best.
But for Batman, well, he's still gotta think about it.
Of course, later on, Barry reverses course, deciding Batman is the Watson to his Sherlock.
Though the reason why might be a little different than expected…
So the matter is still up for the debate then. Who's the greatest detective of all? What do you think?
The Flash #64 hits stores tomorrow.
