Describe this photo (Batman and Superman fighting)

Hint: you'll probably want to use either present tense to describe the action and future tense to predict who will win the fight.

Batman give an upper punch to Superman, eventually he he didnt hit him. So he quickly gave him back onother punch at his lower abbs. But Superman is very allert to avoid Batmans punches. He also tried to punch Batman, and hitting him by his power. And I think Superman will win.

Batman is trying to hit Superman with a hook but he didn't hit him. So Batman is quickly throwing another punch at Superman's lower abs. But Superman is very alert to avoid Batman's punches. He also tried to punch Batman with a powerful uppercut. And I think Superman will win.


Watch out for present progressive like in the first sentence - Batman give :arrow: Batman is giving (but "trying to hit" is the right phrase or you can say "throwing a punch").

Nowadays there are a lot of super heroes such as Batman and Superman. Both of these superheroes can fly. Batman is tough while Superman is not so tough. Also, Superman wears his underwear over his pants. Superman is not shy at all. :lol:


You can also use the comparison if you want: Batman is tough while Superman is not as tough as Batman.
