These are the two cards in question. My opponent was down to 1 Life, I was attacking with Batman (Lv 2) and Hal Jordan (Lv 1). He blocks both, using Beast to block Hal. Beasts ability tries to spin down Hal, which KO's him.

Does Batman's Retaliaton happen before Beast's life gain?

Attacking player decides.

No.

Beast's ability is (paraphrased): Spin down, if you can't, knock out and gain life [if burst]

You need to resolve an ability in it's entirety before starting another one. So, when Hal is blocked, Beast's entire ability must resolve:

Hal is knocked out, and your opponent gains 2 life.

Now you can trigger retaliation.

The way you are trying to do it is you start Beast's ability: You knock out Hal, then you want to stop Beast's ability for a moment, to trigger your own, but you can't resolve part of it. You resolve the whole thing.
