Re: Batman-"the most realistic" superhero?
^^ The reason Batman can do what he does sans any superpower, while so few others are also capable of such, is as simple as looking out at the world.
We have people in this world who are unique; who are capable of things next to no one else is. Stan Lee's show on the History channel is all about such.
In the comics, it seems a vast fortune combined with tragedy are required. Oliver Queen, Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark.
And in total 100% truth, the modern Iron Man movies would likely be the most realistic superhero films.
But Batman is the 2nd most well known comic book character. He's right up next to Superman. And he's up there, above all of Marvel and the rest of DC and so on, in part because of his realistic-ness.
