This achievement unlocks upon successfully clearing all 20 Battle Mode challenges in "Battles" Mode. Battle Mode can be accessed from the main menu by going to Single Player > Battles. In Battles Mode there are 20 different kind of battle mode challenges with different conditions, some of which must be unlocked first. Most challenges require you to defeat a randomized lineup of 10 opponents and you must defeat all 10 of them with specific conditions for each fight such as: being poisoned the entire fight, playing as a random character, fight with only 25% health, mystery buffs, and more. Except for Classic Battle, every Battle Mode has its own set difficulty, and usually the difficulty level is connected to each opponent you face varying from Very Easy to Hard. Usually the first few opponents are very easy to defeat but the opponents will become more resilient and difficult to beat as you progress.

Unlocking Battle Mode Challenges
When first starting the game, only 5 Battle Modes will be available; the other 15 must be unlocked. To unlock them you need to use acquired Access Cards and unlock them in the Archives located under Bonus Features. You'll naturally get them when going for the "Hoarder" achievement. Access Cards are acquired whenever you level up and you should have enough cards to unlock the other 15 Battle Modes by the time you reach Level 20. In short, you should have plenty of cards for this while going for "The Hero We Deserve" achievement. Breakdown
Clearing all 20 of these Battle Modes should not be too difficult at first. For 15 of the 20 Battles you can continue and select "Retry" if you are ever defeated. This allows you to have a rematch against the opponent who beat you so that you can continue where you last left off. You get as many tries as you need to complete the challenge. The ONLY
Modes you will have to clear without using a retry are: Survivor, Speed Run, Unstoppable, The Max, and Impossible.
You can see if you have already completed a Battle by highlighting the selection and pressing the
-button to see the Leaderboards on that battle. Your GT will be displayed at the bottom of the leaderboard. If there is a 0 next to your name that means you have not cleared it yet.

A quick guide to most of the Battles listed above can be found in the link below. The focus of this solution will mainly be on The Max and Impossible!http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=48...Battle Mode Strategy
Using the character you're most comfortable with and hitting the CPU with your longest, most damaging BnB combos is a possible way to clear these Battles. For the #9 Combo Heaven
mission, be sure to use Aquaman
and use his Trident Rush move and the meter Burn version to clear it easily, it's done by pressing Down, Toward + X then RT. When doing this move press Toward your opponent to stay in range, you can move away or toward while performing Trident Rush to get more hits. Testyourmight.com has a number of listed combos you could follow if needed. However, if you struggle with completing any of these modes then a highly effective character to use for this would be Doomsday
1. Angle jump at your opponent and press Down + A for a Body Splash crossup.
2. Then combo into this chain as you land: X, Y, A,
3. Link that into a Venom Tackle (Down, Toward + A) then Meter Burn(RT) once it connects for extra damage.
This is literally the only move and combo you need in order to clear 18 of the 20 Battles and it can also be used for Survivor, Unstoppable, and Impossible! Feel free to make use of Doomsdays other weapons such as his unblockable Supernova, Iron Skin ability(B-button) and his Super Move if needed.
Below in the video is the combo being executed as well as a successful run through Survivor Mode. Credit goes to Obie83 and dalleval for the combo upload and RA1NKING for the Survivor run."The Max"
In this Battle challenge you have to defeat all 10 randomized opponents who are set to Very Hard difficulty without using a Retry. Many people find this to be the hardest Battle Mode challenge of the 20 to complete. The CPU has fast reflexes, will read any move you throw at them, and exploit an opening to combo you into oblivion. At times it feels like the CPU knows exactly how to counter you and when. Opponents such as Aquaman and Green Lantern are even able to defeat you in just a few combos. Luckily, there is a character you can use to make this more bearable.
By selecting Hawkgirl
you can simply spam her Mace Charge by pressing Away, Toward + Y to chip away at the CPU's health until they open themselves up to a hit for good damage. The move comes out quickly, inflicts good chip damage, and gets your Super meter up fast. Just be sure to properly zone some opponents by jumping back first before doing it and use your Super Move whenever you see the CPU is about to attack to gain the upper hand. Your Super Move is a definite X-Factor to your success. Play smart and stay out of corners because the CPU will thrash you when your back is against the wall. RA1NKING has posted a video of this method done so pay special attention to how he deals with certain opponents. Credit for the video upload and methods goes to RA1NKING, Dark Rocky X, PRSNightfire and themuffinboyy.
Using this move, you will still want to avoid certain opponents whenever attempting The Max. Because the 10 opponents you receive are always random, you can simply start up The Max, and if you get specific characters who give Hawk Girl problems, just press start scroll over to Battles, then exit. Repeatedly start up The Max until you get an easier lineup of opponents that suit you. Do your best to avoid facing any of these 7 bad match-up characters:
° Green Lantern
° Lex Luthor
° Wonder Woman
If you happen to encounter any of the above mentioned characters, try to delay your Mace Charge as they get off the ground for better results- don't just mindlessly spam it. Connect with it, then dash up to them. Wait for them to nearly get fully up from the ground then quickly input it again. These characters can easily punish the Mace Charge on start-up with their special moves. They don't fall for the Mace Charge that easily and may be too aggressive for this method to work entirely. Although they're not unbeatable, it will make your Hawk Girl runs go much smoother without having to face any of them.
Projectile users such as Ares, Green Arrow, Killer Frost, Sinestro, and Cyborg, you'll also want to perform the Mace Charge on up close. Once it connects, quickly dash toward them up close as they wake up then input Mace Charge again. Repeat, and the CPU should fall for it every time. An ideal line-up of characters you'll want to face in The Max using this method are:
° The Joker
° Solomon Grundy
° Black Adam
° Green Arrow
° The Flash
It's really all about match-ups and hitting enough Mace Charges and Super Moves for each fight. It can be slightly luck based if the CPU doesn't behave properly. Be patient with this method, it does in fact work, but it will take some practice albeit maybe even a few losses to get it just right. You can even Practice against The Max opponents. If you go to Single Player > Single Fight. You can Practice against "The Max" opponents by first selecting Hawkgirl then your opponent in Single Fight. After choosing the opponent you wish to practice this tactic on, select the Very Hard difficulty option. During the match, the CPU will fight exactly the same way as they do in "The Max". It's how I practiced against Aquaman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern using the Hawgirl method just in case I ran into them in Battle Mode. Those specific characters are very tricky to beat with Mace Charge alone and may require a more refined strategy with Hawkgirl when using the Mace Charge. For a full Hawkgirl Versus guide to all 24 opponents in The Max, see the links below. http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=57...http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showpost.php?p=5791...Note:
If you're not comfortable using Hawkgirl, the Doomsday method may also work here as some people have had luck clearing it with him as well."Impossible!"
For this mode you must defeat all 24 characters from the game in a row with your health bar and Super meter carrying over each match. If you lose you will be taken back to the main menu, no retries allowed. The difficulty setting for the opponents vary from Very Easy to Hard in this mode. You do in fact get 25% or more of your health replenished after each fight depending on how well you fought. An extra 10% of health will be awarded to you for each bonus objective you complete. After each match you win, the game will tell you your bonuses during your win pose. Try to complete some of the following objectives to get as many Health bonuses as you can:
° Win the match: 25%
° Perform a 30% Combo: 10%
° Use an Interactive object: 10%
° Win a Clash: 10%
° Complete a Transition: 10%
This means you can leave a fight with as much as a 65% Health bonus if you fight properly. Impossible! isn't too difficult, but you'll have to play smart and careful with your health meter. Use the above mentioned Doomsday method
for this, since Hawk Girl has too many bad match ups and will take too long to win fights spamming Mace Charge. The first 10 opponents or so are usually very easy to defeat, but somewhere half-way through you'l face opponents who won't fall for your combo so easily. Try crouch blocking against them if they are aggressive and use the pause button until they open them self up then punish. Personally, I found the crouching heavy attack(Down +A) to work well up close.
You want to be smart with your Health and Super Meter because both of these carry over to the next match. Never blow your Super meter on a Super Move, your combo is good enough. Only use meter for Meter Burn with your Venom Tackle or to win clashes, that's it. More than likely while on their 2nd Health Bar(red health), the CPU will try to Clash you when you land a combo on them, so more meter increases your chances of winning or tying those clashes to prevent health loss. Remember, that using single hit heavy attacks(A-button) help prevent the CPU from clashing against you. But be warned as then you'll have to worry the CPU attempting their Super Move on you. Also use interact-able objects whenever you can, and keep sticking to the combo. Only start pausing against the more resilient CPU and scout for openings. Focus on keeping your health as high as you can and you'll get through all 24 foes. Just make sure you have at least a little over a red health bar going into fights. For me, I had just a sliver of white health going into most fights and I was still able to finish strong. Buckles Supreme has a video of this being done below.
Hopefully these methods prove effective for you. Please comment if anything needs to be added or changed.
