If Batman was dropped into the Warhammer World could he find a way to subdue Chaos?

The most logical scenario I can think of would be for Batman to secretly plot and bring down Karl Franz in order for himself to become Emperor of Man and install an Empire wide Police State where he controls all media, propaganda and essentially brainwashes the population into being so scared of repercussions of degenerate or malicious acts that Chaos ceases to have a hold on them.

You know for a fact Batman would be able to find and expunge all of the hidden Chaos cults around the Empire and given the fact The Empire have just about hit the Industrial revolution, I have a feeling it wouldn't be too long before Batman has drones and legions of bat bombers circling the sky's on patrol, among other advanced inventions.

Would SIgmar embrace him as a son?

Who knows maybe he would fall to Chaos himself and make the place worse.

    Hahahahahah Batman lost against a human with no powers like The Joker.
    What makes you think that he would be able to defeat characters from this world, with the same ability (or more) to play with minds but also magic powers like Morathi?

    Without access to any of his gadgets or technologies, Batman is just a traumatised boy with a bat suit, had it's not like he can plan in advance for something like Tzeentch, and you can only get so far punching Deamons.

    I don't think most versions of Batman would overthrow Karl Franz. Batman has faced countless threads in the comics, from more grounded mass murderers to multiversal threats some of which could make even 40k chaos gods seem tame in comparison. I don't think he chooses to become mayor of Gotham or the president of the US because of that, save for maybe one or two times I might not be aware of. I also think Batman is too hesitant to show the cruelty necessary to deal with the people who have been seduced by chaos, considering he won't even kill the Joker, he's a deeply compassionate individual in most of his iterations so this would likely have to be a parallel version, like Owlman.

    Logically speaking, Batman wouldn't succeed considering he would be lacking most of his technology, and the best ways to completely erase chaos' hold on the world involve stuff like mass brainwash or killing the entire world, which are stuff most versions of his character wouldn't do. But I'm sure some writer could still find a way to make it happen.

    He's at least got the absurd levels of willpower necessary to resist the chaos gods.

    Batman’s obsession makes him vulnerable to slannesh, though. Driven to fight crime and punish the guilty at the expense of any identity beyond Batman, to the point that Wayne is the mask, is a sign of a compulsion that chaos could hook into, take advantage of.

    Basically Konrad Kurze but without power armor.

    The only Batman who'd go for this would be Millerbats who I don't consider to be representative of Batman at all.

    So no.

    At most he'd just follow in Dietrich Kastner's footsteps and become Archaon II.

    ah yes, a traumatized boy with a huge knowledge about science and technology.

    Usually only Lex Luthor is considered smarter, all things considered. (on earth)

    And batman is actually failry acquainted with magic and such.

    And for the people of culture: we know the mind of batman is not a nice place.

    till water is gone,

    I think that without his tech, he'd be about as impactful and capable as Deathmaster Sknitch

    Don't get me wrong, I love Batman. I have 100% of the achievements for the Batman games (except Origins, stupid multiplayer), but he's very, very tech reliant.

    He'd have some awesome sync kills on stuff like Crypt Horrors and Kroxigors though hahaha

    That’s something to ponder, without plot armour who would win between those 2..

    Go back to the transformer forums, an utter pit of depravity. The power of decent forums every where compels you.

    That said, no. Batman has failed in his own universe to ever stop his own version of hell and other hell like diminsions from spilling forth and killing constantly. And often has to go out and rely on magical allies to deal with this. Be it teaming up with Zatana, Dr. Fate, or any other number of magical individuals.

    Probably Deathmaster if Batman doesn't have his sensory gadgets and such, unless he can get his hands on some artefact to even the odds.

    Because Supermen held back. That's even canon as of TDK: The Master Race. Sigmar will just bash his head in and that's that.

    You've basically just described the Imperium of Man from 40K and uh... No. That path does nothing but empower Chaos by making everyone's lives so miserable they'll seek out anything for some kind of release no matter how sketchy it seems.

    Also. Batman is just one man. He can't patrol an entire country all by his lonesome. He can barely patrol a single city like Gotham. I also don't see him being able to jump from steam engines to computer chips and circuitry to create an army of bat-drones either, and even if he could the closer we get to 40K tech the closer we get to daemons finding new metal bodies to play in.

    All Batman needs to do is Join the Engineering College remember how a Bolt Action Rifles work, and develop cartridges. That alone will safeguard humanity for generations to come.

    Humans and humanoids, in the DC universe batman doesnt kill aliens neither and so in warhammer he wouldnt kill orcs, beastmen etc etc.
