Today I am going to tell you Why Batman is favorite and what makes him so special. If you are a fan of Batman than you must read it as it will make you happier than ever and although if you don?t like it then also you should read it. It may change your opinion about him. I will tell you the fact about this character (Batman) which most of you didn?t know and some of you might know.
We all have some idol in our life & when we talk about them we got excited, sometimes we don?t even have words to explain the beauty or specialty of that character. As you are reading this article I am assuming you?re a fan of Batman like me but when sometimes I try to explain why he?s so special to me I didn?t get right points to approve my opinion many of you also have the same problem but don?t worry from today onwards you won?t get this problem that?s my promise. So let?s get started.
First of all, Batman is a superhero, but he didn?t have any superpowers. Yes, you heard correctly Batman is considered as superhero in-spite of the fact that he didn?t have any Super-natural power, Bruce Wayne the Batman is purely an ordinary human like us with no accident in the past which could create changes in him in any aspect. So it?s clear that it?s not always the powers which make anyone superhero. He didn?t have any superpower, but he?s still most favorite Hero of all time.
Morally Deprived past
Bruce Wayne lost his parents when he was seven years old. They were shot in front of him.Y es, seven years old boy sees his parents were shot in front of him which gives his character the most tragic past of every hero. This tragedy in his life resulted in the creation of Batman. That night Bruce was powerless, lacking in strength, have fear to fightback those criminals which shot him in front of him. That?s why he became Batman ?The guardian of Gotham.?He was afraid of bats. He chooses bats as his symbol as he overcomes his fear.
He has guilt that he had feared that night due to which it costs his parents their life. He became a nightmare; he sacrificed his comfort so that what happened to him in childhood doesn?t happen with any other in his city. Bruce Wayne belonged to the very rich family he could have been made anything he wants, but he chooses to become something which made him a lot more than what he was earlier( earlier means billionaire). First, he was called a vigilante who fights with the criminal of the city then he was called protector of his city(Guardian of Gotham) and after which now he protects peoples whom power are more than we could think of(Justice league) which makes him the most iconic hero of all time.
Bruce Wayne Batman is super intelligent. He is genius his IQ is 192 that trumps out Albert Einstein having IQ (160?180) he is termed as greatest detective of all time. He has a sort of memory which is even greater than photographic memory. Anything he sees doesn?t pass over his mind not even a single detail, and he is master of strategies he always has N no. Of plans in backup, he is always ten steps ahead of his enemies. His plans never fail. It is his smartness results in his victory irrespective of what kind of superiority his enemies have then whosoever is standing in front of him it makes Batman unstoppable against any enemy.
Another reason for which Batman is known for is his justice .?When you are on Batman side, then you didn?t have to fear whether you are standing on the right side or not? this line was in the injustice of gods among us when it was not clear who is on right way the narrator of comic itself stated that statement. Whatever tragedy happens with him his judgment could never be cloudy, unlike other heroes he has full control over his mind and body. Batman is the man of principles till he is alive he never lets anything go injustice in front of him he chooses his symbol of a bat because it was his fear but he overcame his fear and that what makes it much more interesting he makes his fear into every criminal?s nightmare. There is nothing on this green earth which could scare him.
Batman is master of martial arts he knows more than 100 martial arts. His physique is incredible he can fight in any no. of styles. He is given the title of peak human He?s is the only one among all humans and even in superheroes who have got respect from god. H e?s master of stealth he is superior to every human in the world.He ha s taken his training from ?Ra?s al Ghul? Arabic head of demons and finally beats him in the end too that means he becomes superior to him too from his own master. Batman has got this skill of learning very well he can learn anything and then can outlast his master too.
Batman is a man of principle he beliefs that everyone in this universe can be changed, and they all deserve chance he didn?t kill anyone it was his most basic moral codes that?s makes him different from criminals see he breaks laws too then how is he different from street thugs .he didn?t kill anyone, so everyone?s gets a chance to change them self. Batman is the only person who wears his mask, i.e., like Barry Allen wears a mask of flash, Clark Kent wears mask of Superman but Bruce Wayne, he wears his mask he created that by his own, i.e., Batman is not a person he is a nightmare who will always in the heart of people that they knows what would come after them if they do something wrong.
it is not only Batman skills or smartness or his humanity which makes him special, but the main thing which makes him so special is his choice of enemies.
Batman enemies are no ordinary enemies or street thugs they all have some characteristic which makes them special in their ways they are not just ordinary villains each of them tests a different set of skills.
Bane ? Bane is a big freak he has got real strength in batman dark knight rises batman was nowhere near strength of bane we shouldn?t forget that he is human too he has limits too but unlikely other he keeps on pushing himself so hard and surpass his limits when he fights with bane he losses for the first time very badly bane breaks his spine but he stretches himself and at the end resulting in sweet victory.
Riddler ? Riddler challenges Intellect of Batman actual intelligence.
Poison ivy – poison ivy challenges and tests the temptation of batman.
Scarecrow- challenges fears of Batman.
Joker- In all the enemies mentioned above Joker has got the most special place, but why after all he?s a villain too what makes him special the answer is because of he beliefs in Anarchy and Chaos. Joker beliefs in anarchy and chaos which are directly just opposite to the very fundamental values they directly hit upon batman?s very basic moral codes and his beliefs. In Batman the dark knight, Heath ledger shows the Joker which we couldn?t ever think of his role was insane his character is the main reason why joker is so popular. Joker question?s the most basic values of Batman that?s what makes him above all others. Joker is an only enemy who didn?t want to kill Batman. He says that he is incomplete without him. He didn?t have any aim or want anything else from the world he didn?t fear of death too he has darkness inside him he just wants world too just burn.
but question remains intact how all these characters makes Batman popular after all they are villains The answer to that is ?Characters flaws are more interesting then there perfections? to explain this just take an example if Sherlock homes was against some normal street thug then it won?t be a competition but when it comes to Moriarty he?s the only person who can out think him, and that?s where things go interesting, same thing for Batman in-spite of being perfect human he portraits an perfect real life when his enemies are far ahead of him he stretches his boundaries and at the end outlast them with a fruity victory.
So who is the strongest person ?
The one who fights for others without any self profit , sacrifices his life filled with millions of comforts for those unknown strangers who always says that he is criminal and is not required for the sake of this city , the one who fights without any powers ,who sacrifices his whole life to just a single goal justice , a person not with infinite power but with infinite never-ending will power, the one who could be anything else and can get anything from the universe could be a playboy, billionaire but what he chooses makes him a lot more than anything in the universe he might have chosen . Who stops those without killing them who always wanted him dead than anything else.T he one who is most closest to reality who portraits the real life and problems,the one who have full control over his body and mind,the one who always stretches himself whenever faces something too far from his level,the one who can teach us millions of lessons of life , the one who always stops the smallest problem even a smallest crime and fight for even a single person ,saves their life and in return what he got?s from universe is hatred he is always hated for what he does & that is his existence that is ?.that is The Batman?!!!
In real life becoming Batman is quite difficult but it is not impossible he is a common man who uses his technology, combat skills & intellect to fight crime
Batman teaches us many lessons of life too , the things that one should inculcate from him are Will power to reach to any extent to do what has to be done,to reach stretch one?s limits when it is necessary , never let?s judgement cloudy due to any kind of tragedy, to get control over whole body, mind, strength & fear and many more?
These facts and the main reason that he is so close to the real life we try to find something similar in him and us we amaze our self that how anyone could be so perfect with no flaws in himself. The man who lives like a millionaire, playboy on one side is opposite in another part of his life; his life portrays the reality of life which makes him so much iconic the man who is 100% perfect the man who has changed the definition of word ?limit.? The man who perfectly knows that what are the lines and exactly when to cross them. That is Batman!!!
That is why most of the heroes even having powers and far more strong than him still are not as much as popular, thing is that powers or strength are not the factors which determine who is more worthy of the title hero.
That is why Batman is best. He?s not a hero he is an idea that anyone could be and one can take many lessons of life.
