They are the World's Finest heroes - yet their rivalry has grown into one of the greatest conflicts in modern comics! On March 25th - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will bring the world's most iconic superhero pairing to the big screen in their first major crossover! It's the start of a new cinematic DC Universe, and a fresh escalation of tension between these storied combatants.

In this week's Old Comics Wednesday special, we're looking back at the Secret Wars on Infinite Earths tradition of Batman v Superman showdowns! From Frank Miller's seminal final chapter of Dark Knight Returns, to an issue of Superman/Batman simply called Who Would Win?: We've got a selection of superfights perfect for preparing for the movie main event of 2016!

Just as Dawn of Justice will introduce the beginnings of the Justice League, so too have past comic book clashes between Batman and Superman spilled over into the rest of their universe. By clicking the covers below, you'll see fights that also include: Wonder Woman, FlashGreen Arrow, Atom, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Kryptonite Man! Stay tuned this month for more Batman/Superman battles as well as more flashbacks inspired by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
