Last month the Penguin was pitted against the Joker. How about if two more iconic villains were to face off? I am talking about Scarecrow taking on the Riddler. Dr Crane vs E. Nigma. Both of these two are in my top 5 favourite Batman villains.

Scarecrow is a very resourceful villain using chemicals to take down his enemies, is handy in combat and is an intelligent individual (he’s not called doctor for nothing). The Riddler doesn’t like to get involved as much and uses henchmen and his brains to take down others.

If this were a power struggle in Gotham, Crane may make the first move. We know he isn’t afraid to take down anyone to reach his goals. He would poison a whole city to take down Nigma (similar to Batman Begins) and could intimidate the Riddler into submission. Would Scarecrow be able to find him though? The Riddler is very good at hiding and deceiving others so he could hide away until Scarecrow falls into is traps.

 

 

I feel that Nigma’s egoism would get the better of him. He doesn’t just have to beat his enemies, he has to humiliate them. Putting off killing Scarecrow would be a huge miscalculation. Crane doesn’t mess around and would inject Nigma with a toxin before he could react. You’d think that Crane would have to get close because the Riddler is smart enough to have contingency plans. A simple gas mask would stop any gas attacks against him, requiring the Scarecrow to have to get close. Riddler may not even face him one-on-one. He may underestimate the Scarecrow and any attempts to reason with Scarecroe would be ineffective.

There are are so many different scenarios possible but I believe Scarecrow would edge it. He is resourceful, intimidating, a good fighter, intelligent and can take someone down easily. For these reasons I think Scarecrow would take it, but the Riddler is still a very tough and formidable opponent.

Who do you think would win and why? I would love to hear your opinion which you can comment below.
