    I still don't think Batman is aimed at kids anymore, just some parts of him, but you do you.

    I can't believe you are making me do this:
    Definition of SUPERHERO
    Super powers are not required to be a superhero, it is in the ****ing dictionary. Debate over.

    Any mass media release involving Batman is almost always "family friendly". We can argue over what that means, but I think most would agree, that means kids can engage. I feel like you take that as "solely" aimed at kids, but then kid's content is literally just stuff like Paw Patrol.

    Well then Batman is not a kid's character, he's a character for all ages, which is the point I've been telling you since the freaking beginning. He's as much for adults as he is for kids. He is an adult character, he is a kids character, you can make media geared towards both of those and neither of those feel off.

    A character for all ages, is a kid's character. Because they have to be suitable for kids. Which I've been trying to explain to you. But then you start getting into anecdotal evidence about how you thought Batman was so adult growing up.

    It's just more and more evidence. We don't have to stop at one thing.

    And a character aimed at all ages would also be an adult's character, because they'd have to be interesting for adults in a way that a character that's exclusively for kids like Peppa Pig or Paw Patrol aren't.
    Character for all ages= character for kids and adults.
    Its self-explanatory.
    God what a pointless semantic discussion.

    I think different adaptions of Batman are more subtial for kids while other are more subtial for adults.

    Like is Batman 1989 Batman Returns Batman Begins The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Rises Joker 2019 Batman V Superman Dawn Of Justice really subtial for kids ?

    It literally says in the dictionary that a person with super powers is a superhero. Then the exception is dumb AF because that would mean that James Bond, John McClain or just about any cop with a skill set should be considered a super hero. "Successful person"? Lmao what? So we giving out SUPERHERO labels to everyone now like Oprah. Alright. The only way that definition you sent me makes sense is if it means "a superpowered being who ALSO has exceptional skills". And that is not Batman.

    Shauner would you mind telling us what you mean when you say Batman isn't a superhero ?

    You said friends with a superhero makes you one too. I can quote each post.

    Batman has a superpower though.

    It's his mind.

    It's what makes him Batman.

    You know what was meant. Don’t be intellectually dishonest with us.

    I think Shauner is just laying bait, but the medium where he comes from makes him a superhero. He’s part of the first wave of superhero comics.

    Guys, at this point I think the debate on whether Batman is a superhero or not has run its course. If people want to live in a fantasy world where they love the super adult, not at all a children's icon that sells toys, and is definitely not a superhero to make themselves feel more adult or something, let them. At this point the arguments are circular and going nowhere. Don't keep feeding the insanity

    I don't think that's what Shauner is impling.

    I think he's saying he's not a traditional superhero due not having any external powers.

    He's as much of a children's icon that sells toys, as he is an adult's icon with stories that are of the interest of adults.He is both and that's what makes him timeless. I think that's a fair way to put it but I agree this argument has become redundant.
