Who wouldn’t want to be Batman? He’s a super hero that we feel we can almost relate to. Most of us aren’t from another planet. Most of us haven’t been exposed to massive amounts of polarized radiation. Many of us have been bitten by spiders, but it’s never amounted to much. But Batman’s background doesn’t have any of that either. Aside from having billions of dollars, knowing how to kick insane trash, having access to awesome gadgets and an inherited house built on a bat nest, he’s just like us.
There are people all over that have money, fighting skills, fun toys and nice landscapes, but that doesn’t make them Batman. So what is it that makes Batman Batman?
None of these things seem to be all that spectacular by themselves. Which leads me to believe that it is a combination of sorts. There must be some specific formula, because if you add them together incorrectly, it isn’t pretty.
