To begin with, Beowulf was set centuries in the past, whereas Batman is set in either present or near future. 

Beowulf used only common weapons; Batman uses technologically advanced weapons, by virtue of the fact that he is also multi-millionaire Bruce Wayne. 

Batman has a secret identity, Bruce Wayne; Beowulf doesn't have a secret identity. 

Batman has a sidekick called Robin (sometimes); Beowulf doesn't have a partner. 

Beowulf died fighting an unbeatable foe; Batman still lives, and will likely be portrayed as dying of natural causes.
