It has nothing to do with being "edgy" and everything to do with common sense. There are indeed plenty of times when a heavier suit would be a hindrance, especially as you say when he's detecting and skulking about. But he'd have to be pretty dumb to not be prepared for certain occasions and if anyone's shtick is being prepared, it's Bats.

Batman in armor kind of defeats the purpose of Batman.

Also, there's no armor anyone could wear that would protect them from Superman. None whatsoever.

Superman would rip that **** off then say: "Shall we go a few rounds without the suit?".

I never liked blue and grey especially blue but I wouldn't mind a dark blue too.

I don't mind him having some sort of power suit for special occasions but he's a fool if he thinks he can fight Superman toe to toe at Superman's level.

I think Batman should have power suits though for special occasions but not wear them all the time. He should be similar to Iron Man in that he invents his own stuff but not like Iron Man if that makes sense.

So he's not Batman if he has some physical protection? That seems really arbitrary. What about underwear? If he switches from boxers to briefs is he still Batman?

Alfred: "I decided Wheaties were better for your diet, Master Wayne."

Oh, come on, that's exactly what it is. What common sense are you talking' about? He doesn't have to get into every type of situation that's outside of his field of operation. If something is above his powers, then that's ok with me. Why alter his character traits and turn him into a demi god? Just keep it simple, there are other heroes that can encounter super powered beings and fly into space like going for a walk into the park.

Armoured suits have been regurgitated too many times. Another one would be like swallowing a cup of cold sick, for me.

Batman being invincible in "invincible" armor takes away from what makes him so great in the first place - that he isn't invulnerable and can be killed but is out doing awesome stuff anyway and that his greatest weapon is his mind and physical body, he's like a ninja. He can have some protection on his suit, it can be made out of material that's bullet proof and flame and shock proof to a degree, but anything further than that takes away from what is Batman and part of what makes him appealing as a character.

Actually Superman would not be bent, least of all by Batman, he's the Man of Steel in case you hadn't heard which means he's super hard.

And I was talking about Superman since this IS supposed to be a Superman sequel, despite all evidence to the contrary, and the tentative title for the film is "Batman VS Superman" or "Superman VS Batman"....so uh yeah...that's where talk if Superman comes from.

I hope Goyer and Snyder sat down and marathon watched Batman TAS, Mask of the Phantasm and JL New Frontier. Those give you all the characterization background you need to write Batman. Love the live action movies but none of them have got it right yet. Back to basics. Build off of that. But my fear is he's going to be reverse engineered to suit their needs. Aesthetics and all.

As cool as the Origins Batsuit is, it is overdone. I'd like the colors from the Origins costume with the texture of the Arkham City one.

I think it's kinda funny how a lot of people want to armor up Wonder Woman, who doesn't necessarily need it, but then the mention of doing the same with Batman, people complain. Both have done it in the comics so it's not exactly a new concept.

No, there is a difference between making a costume look believable and not ridiculous and adding on armor. The changes people have done in adapting WW's costume is not simply adding armor.

^ I'd want him to have SPECIAL armor for fighting Superman. Yeah, I know it wouldn't help him much..

But then again, by the logic of "it's useless", he'd be fighting Superman in his Batbriefs.

Armor would be good at "selling" the idea of Batman being some type of threat to Superman.

And it would look cool. And it would allow for a nice, CG oriented fight..

And if the suit is gently pulled apart by Superman, then we can finally see the Batsuit in all its glory.

I think it would be neat. Kind of TDKR gone backwards.

What if the armor sprays a gas that is the chemical composition of krypton a atmosphere? It wouldn't completely depower Supes cos it's not a sealed environment but the presence of the atmospheric composition should effect him perhaps enough for a man in an exoskeleton armored suit to have a small small chance.

But that's not what you said. You said "Batman in armor defeats the purpose of Batman" which is nonsense. If you're going to argue something at least try and stay consistent about it. Constantly moving the goalposts doesn't help matters. And if you want to diddle around about with how awesome you think Superman is then go right ahead, but his relevance to what I was talking about is zero.
