I hate batman so much... he's not even a real super hero. There's nothing super about him. He's just a hero. He's basically a smart ninja... are ninjas super heroes? No. Batman should not be part of the justice league. He's a ******* glorified detective. He has no super powers. He's not super human. He's a regular ninja. Call him a hero, but not a SUPER hero.

1/10 copy pasta. Batman exceeds the basic skills and abilities of all humans therefore he is super. Superhero

Why are you giving me a grade? I'm not trolling... and it being posted a lot doesn't make it any less true.
Superhero - any of various comic-strip characters with superhuman abilities or magical powers, wearing a distinctive costume, and fighting against evil.
Now let's look up what it means to be superhuman.
Superhuman - above or beyond what is human

No matter how much Batman trains, he will always be human. He is above average, but still human.

Let's just break down what you just said.

Superhero - any of various comic-strip characters with superhuman abilities or magical powers, wearing a distinctive costume, and fighting against evil.
Superhuman - above or beyond what is human
He is above average [human]

So he has superhuman abilities, he wears a distinctive costumes, and fights against evil. Looks like he checks out as a superhero. Also, he is not just above the average human in his ability, but is the best human in those abilities. Saying "but still human" makes 0 sense, because tons of humans are superheros (the flash, green lantern).

No he is not above human, he is above average. He is still and always will be human. He can work out all he wants, he can not break through that barrier though. There's nothing he can do. He does not have superhuman abilities. The flash, perfect example actually. He has SUPERHUMAN speed. No matter how much Jusain Bolt for example trains he can not surpass the Flash. The Flash has superhuman abilities, Batman does not.

Batman earned his position as a superhero by being extremely intelligent(unlike you're argument), and an expert at hand-to-hand combat. He even recognized Superman could one day become out of control and took measures right away to have the upper hand on him. Every skill batsy has he worked hard to earn. Superheroes don't have to be mutated or genetically different, they just have to have a desire to use their abilities(whatever they are) to do good. The point of Batman's character was to show even a regular man can do amazing things. If you feel that way about Batman, what about green arrow? Or even villains, like Joker and Harley Quinn? Two-face? Val? Cassandra Cain? Dick Grayson? Tim Drake?

But didn't Dick Grayson become Nightwing?

You can't insult my intelligence and then misuse your... but i'm not a grammar nazi so I wont make a big deal out of it. But the thing is you're wrong, that's not what a superhero is.
Superhero - any of various comic-strip characters with superhuman abilities or magical powers, wearing a distinctive costume, and fighting against evil.
And those people you listed aren't super either, but we're talking about Batman here so try to stay on topic please.

You are saying Batman can't be a superhero because of him only being human, but I'm merely pointing out, you can't have one without the other. Green Arrow is considered a superhero yet only human, but it seems unfair you are only calling out Batman for his "flaw" of being human. Superhero typically means yes they have to have SUPER powers, but it can also mean any exceptionally skillful or successful person. And as you said they also have to be wearing a costume fighting crime. I would consider Batman an exceptionally skillful and successful, considering in more than one comic line he bested Superman. If Batman is in question so are the other names is what I am saying because they are just humans like Batman, yet in the comics. Furthermore I wasn't insulting you're intelligence as a whole, only the argument you started with.
#77 to #68 - anon (07/12/2013) [-]
I do not consider green arrow a superhero either. I'm calling out Batman right now because this post is about Batman, if it was about Green arrow i'd say the same thing. No it can not, what you described is a hero and I completely agree, Batman is a hero. Don't even get me started on those ******** Batman vs Superman fights... They are extremely stacked in Batman's favor every ******* time. In a fair 1 v 1 fight, no gimmicks, fair fight, Superman wins 10x out of 10.

I kind of agree. In the justice league they dumb down every super hero to their basic elements. Wonder woman, Superman, and the flash aren't smart or intuitive. They can't think on their feet, they are just strong and fast and arguably a lot weaker for some reason. Batman is just the smart one who shows up whenever there is a science problem or they can't find someone. And he seems over-glorified because because he is over-glorified as the human element. Despite all the other heros in the league except two were raised on Earth. Doesn't make a lot of sense, but hey that's comic books for ya.
#57 to #30 - anon (07/12/2013) [-]
Superman is actually smarter than Batman. He can read entire libraries in a manner of minutes. Anything Batman knows Superman can learn in seconds. And about the science thing, superman is still superior. He has Krytonian technology and knowledge which is far more advanced than any of batman's gadgets. In one issue he even used his x-ray vision and looked at one of batman's gadgets and said "I can see many ways to improve this" but he didn't want to say anything to batman in fear of hurting his feelings or offending him.
#72 to #57 - ladygrantham (07/12/2013) [-]
Yeah, superman is infinitely smarter than batman. Too bad it's rare that they capitalize on that.
#79 to #72 - anon (07/12/2013) [-]
Exactly. Thank you, at least someone knows about comics and aren't just stupid Batman fan boys shouting "HE'S THE GODDAMN BATMANNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!"

That makes him better than these other heros if u think about it, there is more risk to him. That is why I don't think Superman is a true hero, he has no risk. Even though he has a weakness, kryptonite isn't something everybody had, so he had no risk.
#61 to #26 - anon (07/12/2013) [-]
No it doesn't. That makes him much weaker because he's so vulnerable. He's a hero though, no one is saying he isn't, there's no denying that, he's just not a SUPER hero.
#31 to #26 - hylebus (07/12/2013) [-]
Not really, he's vulnerable to magic. And sufficiently powerful beings can just punch him till he dies, like Doomsday.
User avatar #35 to #31 - manwithmanynames (07/12/2013) [-]
I've never heard of that, I've always read that his only weakness is kryptonite.
User avatar #41 to #35 - kwanzalord (07/12/2013) [-]
Well, obviously you don't know much about the DC world.
magic is another weakness of superman.
You should look into fights between black Adam and super man,
User avatar #43 to #41 - manwithmanynames (07/12/2013) [-]
Okay, I'm sorry. Forget what I said
User avatar #24 to #16 - nadastress (07/12/2013) [-]
I think you miss the point of Batman. He's human, no superpowers, he's supposed to be like anyone of us can be him. Actually that makes him even more of a superhero.
Being human and can hang or even outdo the members of the justice league. That's ******* awesome in my book.

No it doesn't.
Superhero - any of various comic-strip characters with superhuman abilities or magical powers, wearing a distinctive costume, and fighting against evil.
Hero - a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.

Batman is a hero, there is no denying that, but he is not a SUPER hero.

User avatar #42 to #19 - kwanzalord (07/12/2013) [-]
okay, no one here said Iron man sucks.
In fact, I like him second to Black Panther of the Avengers. Both having no super powers.
When did Iron man come into this discussion?
#22 to #19 - anon (07/12/2013) [-]
... and? This post is about Batman, not Ironman, stay of topic please. We're talkign about Batman. I don't really like Iron man either but that's not what we're talking about. I don't hate him as much as Batman though. I despise Batman.
