Batman doesn't need superpowers to take down his opponents, however, the most skilled heroes in comics don't need powers to defeat him either.

Batman is Gotham City's Dark Knight, a superhero who made it cool to fight crime without superpowers. He made his debut in a time period when extraordinary and superhuman abilities defined superheroes. Without powers, Batman regularly saved the day using nothing but a superior intellect, clever deduction skills, and the best tech his money could buy.

Batman's consistent heroism without a single power helped make him a staple of comic book culture. He also paved the way for other superheroes without powers in the industry. However, there are a few powerless heroes who would beat Batman in a fight, even if the Caped Crusader had prep time.

Stark's biggest advantage when going up against someone like Batman are the powerful Iron Man armors in his closet.

While Batman has his own armored suit and a few heavier-duty models, Iron Man has a suit built for every occasion and any potential enemy he encounters. Both heroes excel with some prep time, but Batman won't have enough firepower in his utility belt to deal with Iron Man's latest war machine.
