Ogami Itto: Hrrng!
WRONG! Your logic is based on a flawed premise. Ogami Itto is not Japanese 19th Century Batman, he's LONE WOLF. He's SIMILAR to Batman, but he's not Batman. Easily shown via this simple logical conundrum:Batman vs. Batman from THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS:
Who wins out of Ogami Itto and Batman? Answer: DINNA DINNA DINNA DINNA DINNA DINNA DINNA DINNA BATMAN!
Ogami Itto is Batman's great great great great great grandfather, according to V Super-Continuity:
"To avenge you, my wife... I shall become.... a wolf"
"Ninjas are a cowardly and superstitious lot... "
Old Batman also has his own private army, and prepubescent totty to distract Young Batman: 'Quick, Robin! Flash him your knickers! Good soldier."Now I want to know how Batman from THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS would be able to defeat Akira.
