    After seeing Batman Begins I felt that with the right training and modern equipment you could produce a real life Batman. Is this still a thing of fantasy or can there be a Batman in the real world today? What do you think?

    Its not out of the realm of possibilites, the only real downside would be the fact that crimes arent as easy to spot and find as they are in the Batworld - no Supervillians.

    I think it could. It'd be like urban gureilla warfare.

    The guy would have to have ton of stamina, and be as rich as Wayne....since NO powers= major disadvantage.....so he would need tons of equipment to make up for it.

    And yes,.......without an armored suit he'd be dead in 5 minutes.

    No. But they did exist in feudal times.

    NO! I don't think it would work. If you don't get arrested by cops first, you'd probabley be killed somehow.

    Nope. The chance of there ever being a real life Batman is as much as seeing Zorro & Dick Tracy be real. :p

    Yes, it possible.



    But he would only last one night.

    (If he was really good and had the financial resources he could probably last a week before the FBI would find out his identity and lock him up.

    No.

    In Bat-World criminals may be a ‘superstitious and cowardly lot’, but in the real world only the truly deranged would mistake the ‘Bat-Man’ for anything other than some a-hole in a costume. The thing is—even if you were to accept the physical implausibility of such a character being able to function in the real world—a nocturnal vigilante dressed in a bat suit and strapped to some sort of glider is not and never will be an effective way of solving a crime or apprehending a criminal... not even remotely.

    We had this convers. a couple of times here.
    It always leads to this answer.

    That is the reason why someone attempting this would only last one night.

    Its not like there we have never had Vigilantes. Just no one who dressed up as a Bat to do it. Also taking a pledge to not kill would doom this type of undertaking.

    I dunno.......if your smart about it, the dude could make it.

    Plus.....remember, Gotham is a corrupt city.....the cops NEED Batman. So, think about that.

    Well, don't you think that in the old times...there COULD have been a revolutionary vigilante like Zorro?? Not far fetched man.

    Tracy.......meh........that's more SIN CITY-ish, isn't it?

    Yeah....the FBI does a great job of ALWAYS getting they're man.............

    I dunno, I think this is where the whole "Urban myth" thing would come into play.

    Don't worry....I doubt anyone here is going to take this thread as an excuse to try it.

    But......watch BEGINS.......the guy is flying around, hiding in the shadows. When people are scared.....they'll probably buy the creature myth.

    People are pretty easy to scare if you do it the right way.......and I think we're looking at this topic in the "WHAT IF THERE WAS NO BATMAN CHARACTER" as well.

    I just think nobody's had right "stuff" for it........Batman is a unique character. Money, means, opportunity, motive, abilities, genes, intelligence........it'd be like the jackpot of the human race doing something as utterly insane.

    I'm not worried about that, I'm worried that someone will take this thread as an excuse to drag the discussion onto a second page ;)
