Batmath: Why Batman is the Best Superhero Infographic

Batman

Bathmath Infographic. ‘This is Why Batman is the Best Superhero’ diagram is simple and to the point. Its flaw is that there are many superheroes like Batman that have high martial arts skill that do not rely on a superpower, armor, money, magic, etc. Thor is an example of this. He has high physical strength and combat skills that are completely separate from Mjolnir. Elektra and Shadowhawk are two other examples though Batman would out-fight and out-smart the latter and the formers.

On Batman:

Batman is a fictional character, a comic book superhero appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939). Originally referred to as “the Bat-Man” and still referred to at times as “the Batman”, the character is additionally known as “the Caped Crusader”, “the Dark Knight”, and “the World’s Greatest Detective”, among other titles.

Batman is the secret identity of Bruce Wayne, an American billionaire, industrialist, and philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on criminals, an oath tempered with the greater ideal of justice. Wayne trains himself both physically and intellectually and dons a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime.[6] Batman operates in the fictional Gotham City, assisted by various supporting characters including his crime-fighting partner, Robin, his butler Alfred Pennyworth, the police commissioner Jim Gordon, and occasionally the heroine Batgirl. He fights an assortment of villains, often referred to as the “rogues gallery”, which includes the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, Ra’s al Ghul, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman, among many others. Unlike most superheroes, he does not possess any superpowers; he makes use of intellect, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, physical prowess, martial arts skills, an indomitable will, fear, and intimidation in his continuous war on crime.

Batman became a very popular character soon after his introduction and gained his own comic book title, Batman, in 1940. As the decades wore on, differing interpretations of the character emerged. The late 1960s Batman television series used a camp aesthetic which continued to be associated with the character for years after the show ended. Various creators worked to return the character to his dark roots, with varying results. The comic books of this dark stage culminated in the acclaimed 1986 miniseries The Dark Knight Returns, by Frank Miller, as well as Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth by Grant Morrison, among others. The overall success of Warner Bros.’ live-action Batman feature films have also helped maintain public interest in the character.

An American cultural icon, Batman has been licensed and adapted into a variety of media, from radio to television and film, and appears on a variety of merchandise sold all over the world such as toys and video games. The character has also intrigued psychiatrists with many trying to understand the character’s psyche and his true ego in society. In May 2011, Batman placed second on IGN’s Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All Time, after Superman. Empire magazine also listed him second in their 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters of All Time.

    This is just one of those “because I’m Batman” jokes; not a serious argument.

    Agreed

    Very silly diagram, sure batman COULD have a chance at beating those two and many others, but both of those two and many others would have just as big a chance at beating Bats

    The real reason Batman gets so much credit comes from hanging with the Justice League. It is a very powers heavy crew; so you gotta be some kinda tough to both hang with (and hold something over) all those supers. Street level Marvel heroes, like Elektra and Punisher are every bit in Batman’s league; but don’t have his resources, his control complex, or that many opportunities to show up supers like Hulk or the FF (although Punisher did go toe to toe with Wolverine, and Hawkeye once took out She-Hulk).
    The most comparable Marvel character would be Black Panther; but even he never got to hog the spotlight like Batman has, so the control freak aspect does count for a lot.
