Batman Cycle Test Week

Batman v. Superman may have been a box office flop in the theaters, but battles between "The World's Finest" (a nickname given to Batman and Superman when they team up to fight a common bad guy) has happened several times in the comics, usually with Batman "winning" or at least the person who is able to slap Superman out of whatever mind-control he is under. However, the concept of a Man vs a God (or someone with god-like powers) is a common theme throughout much of the stories in mankind's history... Other similar stories include David and Goliath, Odysseus vs the Cyclops, Jack and the Beanstalk, Average Joe's vs Globo Gym... Since I was lucky enough to watch Speal vs Chan on this very same workout at my Level 2 Seminar several years ago, we've named it after them since it represents this Batman vs Superman type of matchup. Anybody want to guess who won that workout about 3 years ago?
