Default Re: The Batsuit Thread

Which he always is, because he is extremely resourceful, honed to physical perfection, a master martial artist and has a bag of tricks in his utility belt.

The idea that the suit is there to cocoon him from harm sabotages the mythos. That's Robocop, or Ironman. Batman might have a micro-thin layer of kevlar between his skin and the cruel hard world, but it is his strength and wits that keep him alive.

Since when has he needed a special suit to fight Croc, anyway?
