Batman Is Not A Superhero
I know what you have been told for decades. Don't feel bad I believed it too.
We were told that Batman was a Superhero. In fact he was included with other Superheroes like Spiderman, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil and even Superman but I'm sorry to tell you he doesn't belong.
The simple reason: he has no super powers.
All the above mentioned characters and many others have some type of extraordinary power(s).
Superman has x-ray vision, super strength, can fly, has heat vision, etc. Spiderman can climb walls, has spider strength, has spider sense and acrobatic agility.
What can Batman do?
Oh, he has a utility belt. That's not a super power that's essentially a tool belt.....like what a construction worker wears.
I'm sorry but that does not qualify you as a SUPERhero.
He can take things out of it like smoke bombs and what not but that is not a super power.
Batman drives a car. He does not fly, climb walls or bound down the street like the Hulk he jumps in his "whip" and cruises to the scene of the crime......like the police do.
That might make him a hero but a Superhero he is not. I wonder how the Green Lantern and the rest of the crew feel about his inclusion.
They've probably been told to be politically correct and not say anything.
I on the other hand, didn't get that memo.
