The Red Death has a genius level intellect, he is an incredible acrobat and one of the best hand-to-hand fighters in the world.
Speed Force Conduit: After driving himself and the Flash into the Speed Force using his Batmobile and the schematics of the Cosmic Treadmill, Bruce absorbed Barry and his powers, granting him a corrupted connection to the Speed Force. The conduit gives him super human speed, agility, endurance and durability. He can generate bat-like Speed Force energy constructs that emit dangerous effects if they come into contact with others. His bat constructs cause the timeframe in others to accelerate, Causing rapid aging. Those effected by it wither away painfully, as if worn down by hundreds to thousands of years passing in an instant. With his enhanced intellect, The Red Death learned to generate more complex speed force constructs. Such as command activated nanotech powered and fuelled by the speed energy he gives off.
On his world, Batman used to be the hero of Gotham City who fought crime with his Robins. However, the city took its toll on the Bat and claimed the lives of all his sidekicks, forcing Bruce to seek more extreme ways to prevent the crimes he felt he wasn't fast enough to stop. Batman set his sights on his world's Flash, determining that he could use the Speed Force better than the speedster himself could. Batman took out all of the Flash's Rogues and confiscated their weapons to use against the Flash in a fight for his powers. After Bruce bested Barry, Batman drove the two of them into the Speed Force using his Batmobile merged with the Cosmic Treadmill - absorbing the Flash and his powers. When Batman returned from the Speed Force, he donned a new costume and became "Batman: The Red Death" and began murdering members of his own rogues gallery in Gotham.
