Default Guilliman Is BATMAN!

And thus wins everything EVER!

Don't believe me? Then compare the following. Behold the cover/poster from the upcoming novel "Know no Fear" by that fine upstanding gentleman Mr Abnett.

To this legendary piece of awesome.

Am I right? Huh? Am I?

How would Guilliman know he can't breathe in space? Has he tried?

I'm pretty sure it's Alpharius who wins at everything and makes his brothers look stupid

ol' Roboute has his fair share of failures unlike Alpharius

I don't see Alpharius breathing in space without a helmet. Do you?

ALL space marines can breathe in space without a helmet for short periods of time, hate to break it to you

All Space Marines can survive in space using their Sus-Ans Membrane and going into a sort of suspended animation. But they certainly don't go around punching the heads off Word Bearers while they do it.

I think Guilliman is what you get when you take Batman's DNA and suck all the angst out of it.

depends on the version of batman we talk about. some batmans were just Friggin Terrible (see the first tv series, ok for its time but damn was that some terrible acting), and the new ones are decent, but some of the old movies were excellent, and certain aspects of the comics are amazing.

Point being: the good versions of batman > Gulliman > bad versions of batman
