The official Mutants & Masterminds boards
The Batman rolled the higher initiative, so he gets the first strike.
Bats nails the Ascendant Master a good one on the first blow, but the Master's Force Field absorbed the shot. Bruce, however, took the second shot poorly, and got Bruised. Bruce also gets a Hero Point for the Master knowing his Secret (Identity), so he's at 3.
The Master saves once more thanks to his Force Field, but he's taking a bit more of a risk now, pumping his damage back up at the cost of his Force Field. Batman takes another rank of Bruised, saving his hero points to finish the fight instead of keep himself alive.
Bruce saves on his disbelief of the Joker-illusion, but the fire's a little too much for him. Still, Batsy tried a good tactic - the gas would bring any human down. But Bruce isn't dealing with a human.
Bruce burns a hero point to come up with a Master Plan on the fly, another hero point to save on his Acrobatics check, using his foe as a vault, and then blows another to vanish into the shadows like the Batman he is, after leaving the Master a little surprise. The Master fails his notice check, and thus, can't see Batsy.
Bats does a huge load of damage to the Master, but fails his will save for disbelieving the illusion of the street...
The Batman critically fails his Toughness save, and he's all out of hero points, having burned them earlier to save himself...the Master, on the other hand, saved against Bruce's bomb (by sheer luck - a natural 20. Anything less would've left him stunned and open prey, since he put his whole array into his illusions). Bats got very unlucky...you can bet there'll be a rematch.
