Of course it's possible to be one or maybe two of those things. But it is physically impossible to be that strong, that agile and that fast all in one package. Then a Einstein level genius and Sherlock Holmes like detective? And a master of dozens of different martial arts? Come on man lol.
Being Batman is like a teenagers fantasy. Well, any mans fantasy. That's exactly what he is; fantasy.
It isn't. It makes it hyper realistic. What makes it unrealistic is that he's everything at once. But the things he masters in can all be accomplished. A few of those things can even be accomplished at the same time. It's not anywhere near as fantastical as an alien from some planet who can fly and do the things he does.
Even if you say it's a fantasy. Fine. But it's a much more relatable fantasy than Superman that's for damn sure. He's human. Clark is an alien. End of story.
