Nope, not joking at all.



When reading a Batman comic, you need to accept that a human being (something that exists in reality) is able to be as physically capable, skilled, knowledgeable and determined as Batman is all at once while still being in a nebulous 30-something age range. Adding the never-ending strangeness of even his most "realistic" enemies, the free range the law gives him, and the fact that he is able to be active for a number of years without eating a bullet strains the suspension of disbelief to a baffling degree.

When reading a Superman comic, you need to accept that there is a godlike alien that appears human but is pretty much invincible, has superhuman physical abilities, can fly and shoot lasers from his eyes. Adding even the most far out of his enemies, the free range the world's governments give him and the concept that his glasses can hide his identity from those closest to both his alter-egos won't strain your suspension of disbelief considering that you've already accepted Superman himself.
