(Batman Month) || Comic Misconceptions || NerdSync” Philippe Pujade says: July 26, 2018 at 10:18 am i think he is a anti-hero Reply Blinkz Awake says: July 29, 2018 at 5:08 pm One thing for sure hes got the most coolest outfit and no other hero can beat it 🔥 Reply Arnav Kamath says: August 1, 2018 at 8:22 pm 8:50You may be on this council, but we do not grant you the rank of master. Reply Fictional Or True says: August 6, 2018 at 1:20 am A hero is anyone who does what is right, even when it is hard. However, a superhero is someone who is a hero when no one else will be. Reply John Smith says: August 7, 2018 at 9:38 pm If Batman is a Superhero than so is JAMES BOND, RYU, SUPER MARIO, LINK, MASTER CHIEF, BRUCE LEE, LARA CROFT, SAMUS ARAN and so on. Reply The Walrus says: August 15, 2018 at 10:44 pm That lady you were in a call with clearly knew nothing about Batman. Like how his suit is bullet proof so he can take a punch. Or how he learned his fighting abilities from the League Of Shadows. Reply Jeremy Moore says: August 18, 2018 at 4:22 pm Deadpool is not a superhero he is just a a walking assassin cancer pile Reply Captain Humboldt says: August 22, 2018 at 8:10 pm neither… batman is a super detective Reply ChaosRayZero says: August 30, 2018 at 1:37 am Megaman.EXE has an obvious chest logo (8:07). He also has it printed on his ears, the headband of his human partner (sidekick?), the title card of the TV show, the cover of the manga, and the box of the video games.He fought against cyberterrorists back when it was still considered cyberpunk stuff that would never really happen (*shudders*).Does that make him a superhero? He does NOT have a secret identity, but he does have a complicated origin story (the short version being that he nearly died at infancy from a birth defect, so his daddy saved his life with technology by somehow uploading his soul and DNA into a digital body). As for powers, not only does he have the typical abilities of a NetNavi to travel through cyberspace and transform his arms into various weapons (including guns and swords), but he also has unique powers due to his shared DNA with his human brother (think more along the lines of "twin telepathy") and a few complicated-to-describe form-changing abilities (such as Double Soul, Cross System, and Beast System).As for the outfit, it's questionable if that armored-catsuit of his is a "costume" or just what his digital body actually looks like… Reply John B says: September 11, 2018 at 3:02 pm If you use the other version of "super" it would imply something is extra. Like being extra awesome could be super awesome. So to me a hero is someone who is willing to do what it takes to help. A superhero is the same thing, but 10 fold. It doesnt matter if they have capes or powers or anything. But if they are able to help and make the decision to help, and are able to do that significantly better than normal people, it makes them super. Super awesome. Super important, and a hero. But not a normal hero, those are police officers and firefighters. But instead one who can do more. If one firefighter pocessed the ability to quickly put out multiple fires and do them "super" efficiently, then he would be a "super" firefighter. So if they decide to dedicate their lifes to stopping crime and helping others, and could do this better than a police officer, firefighter, etc, then that person would be a superhero regardless of costume, symbol on chest, name, or origin. They can go above and beyond to help others and actively identify as one who fights for helping others, then they are superheros. Reply Delirious Coyote says: September 15, 2018 at 1:42 am a superhero is a person that has generosity of helping others and have a thought of helping others mostly by how stuff has happened to them and what's happened to them they mostly think about saving people so then the people will have their own life to go through because if people will die then they would not have a way to help and make them act like a hero Reply TheGothamEmpire says: September 16, 2018 at 3:50 pm Person: “What’s your superpower, Batman?”Batman: “I’m rich.” Reply Jay D says: September 30, 2018 at 2:54 pm Batman's not really too much of a hero though Reply Victor Hugo says: October 1, 2018 at 6:07 am For me a superhero has super powers in it self, green lantern is not super because his powers comes from the ring, who has the ring has the powers, anyone with enough money and will power can be batman or close just like the Robin's got close to his performance. Reply Anthony Hernandez says: October 2, 2018 at 4:38 pm I don't believe you need super powers to be a superhero. Batman has peak human physical abilities and mental abilities and I believe that anyone, if they trained hard enough could gain similar abilities, that are above average. Even technology is becoming more advanced everyday, where awesome inventions are being made in people's garages. So in short Batman isn't super human but his training and ideals, make him a superhero Reply Adrian The MRA says: October 4, 2018 at 4:33 am He isn't a Superhero he isn't a hero either. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.He is a symbol for an idea that is what truly gives him his power. It's not what he can do it's what people think you can do and thats what makes him Batman Reply Mootube says: October 6, 2018 at 2:23 pm Batman is pure fear Reply Assassin Sword says: October 8, 2018 at 1:32 am My comic book super hero i made (the watching, copy right by the watching comics-my company) has no super powers… besides alot of annoying eyes randomly on his body Reply Assassin Sword says: October 8, 2018 at 1:40 am Deadpool is an anti-heroThats a fact, but its close enough to super-hero Reply History Soup says: October 16, 2018 at 11:33 pm I find it hilarious in the extreme that Ludwig Wittgenstein came up in this. 🙂 Awesome. Reply John Smith says: October 17, 2018 at 5:06 am IF YOU GOOGLE THIS QUESTION THE ANSWER YOU GET IS THAT BATMAN IS NOT A SUPERHERO!!!!!! Reply Palm Beach says: October 17, 2018 at 5:37 pm READ THE WHOLE COMMENT Batman is a superhero like the Arrow.my definition of a superhero1)origin story*2)superpowers or skills3)secret identity and hidden base4)sidekick or a team in a world where people actually need a SPECIAL HERO-crime ridden Gotham or asteroid headed toward earth or has a superthreat5)an iconic villain like joker or an entire rogues gallery6)a costume with an iconic symbol or popular weapon-cape,cowl,shield,claws,power suit*7)a realm or a niche to dominate like gotham,aquaman's oceans or flash's speed force*Many can argue that this is not the blueprint for a superhero but you must have these traits otherwise the character is simply a superhuman like an orc from warcraft,vampires from twilight,wizards from Harry Potter,jedi from star wars,mutants in xmen franchise(yeah not all mutants are superheroes there are just too many of them like us humans there) .Even the other KRYPTONIANS(superman,supergirl even superdog but not Jor El),AMAZONS(Wonder woman not hippolyta ),ATLANTEANS(Aquaman not Queen Mera also aquaman is half human),WIZARDS from kamartaj MCEU (Dr Strange not Wong,Mordu or even the Ancient one)and METAHUMANS(cw)/MUTANTS(Marvel) are not considered superheroes(Wolverine,Rogue,Prof. X but not any random mutant).In other words superhero is a SUPER + HERO who has my 7 traits and WHO PEOPLE LOVE AND CALL FOR WHEN THEY ARE IN DANGER very much like Hercules(SUPERhuman) or the medieval knights(HERO)but they have my 7 traits . If not then he/she is just your average SUPERhuman or a regular HERO. Reply Palm Beach says: October 17, 2018 at 11:28 pm superhero genre also covers a lot of other sub genres like mythology(wonder woman,thor),sci-fi(cyborg,aliens),spy(SHIELD,HYDRA),Space fiction(Guardians of galaxy,Green lanterns)Magic(Doctor Strange),Horror(Constantine),War heroes(Captain America,Falcon),Vigilante(Batman,Green Arrow),Antiheroes(Punisher,Luke Cage)Immortality(Wolverine)Artifact(Mjolnir,Lantern ring),Kings(Aquaman,Black panther)and Dr Jekyl Mr Hide werewolf type Hulk.But only Superman is the real superhero. Reply RealCoolGuy says: October 19, 2018 at 9:15 pm Deadpool is a super-villain Reply Hyruleguy says: October 25, 2018 at 4:03 pm He's a detective. Reply Daniel Xpert says: November 3, 2018 at 2:46 am The real question is, IS IRONMAN A SUPERHERO, i mean, he makes mad titans bleed Reply Kobold Party says: November 11, 2018 at 1:31 am Batman's superpower is being Batman. Reply KajiRider1997 says: November 24, 2018 at 2:42 am 0:21 if Super powers is the only criteria for a hero to be super then I'm sad to say that Superman ins't the first because The Shadow had to power to cloud men's mind. that is a Super Power. And after that is Ogon Bat who had all Superman's powers. Come to think of it this video completely ignores the pulp era. Reply Reed Middendorf says: November 29, 2018 at 7:41 am A super hero is someone who fights against evil on their own accord who is referred to or called a superhero in their world. It works the same way when separating science fiction from fantasy. If the impossible and incredible act is regarded as science (as apposed to magic) in the story, then the story is science fiction. Reply phantom12321800 says: December 2, 2018 at 5:32 pm O_O we don't talk about the bat nipples Reply Scare The Locals ! says: December 5, 2018 at 11:48 am What makes one a superhero are the things that accomplish, what they overcome, the pain they endure (mental anguish too), and finally what they sacrifice to protect people. It's all of this that makes them superheroes not powers. Imagine what it takes to put that suit on night after night. A good example is the Lanterns- the ring only chooses superheroes and then gives them powers. Reply Christopher Sanchez says: December 5, 2018 at 4:55 pm But Batman is not the average human, he is a peak human Reply The Reptile Boi says: December 9, 2018 at 8:08 pm Money is BEST superpower Reply Itz Sh0ckerz says: December 20, 2018 at 1:34 am I guess Deadpool and Captain America aren't superheroes either Reply Mr. Dr0boT says: January 4, 2019 at 2:51 pm Batman has defeated gods my dude. He is definitely a fkn super hero. Reply James Nash says: January 8, 2019 at 6:07 pm My argument is always ‘he’s super compared to me’ Reply Matthew Conte says: January 15, 2019 at 8:04 pm If batman's not a superhero because he doesn't have powers relative to other humans, then superman's not a superhero because he doesn't have powers relative to other kryptonians (given the same sun exposure). Batman is a superhero. Reply Xavier Jimenez says: January 21, 2019 at 6:40 pm I think what makes a super hero is not that you have super powers or you just Dress up in a costume and you go fight crime is what you stand for a superhero stands for something super man Stands for hope Batman put the fear in his enemies and SpidermanWith great power comes great responsibility right See it’s not just fighting evil it’s doing it because you have a type of morals and guidelines to keep people safe And that’s why Batman’s a superhero not because he has no powers but because what he stands for and the fact that he’s doing things like that because he’s human and going against the odds makes him even more super I think like If superman had no superpowers then he’s just a man Batman takes off the costume he still Batman because even without the costume he could still fight crime Reply Nichos Ramos says: January 27, 2019 at 11:35 am He's Batman! Reply super nova says: February 7, 2019 at 2:07 pm He is a crime fighter. There is hardly any doubt about it! Reply Gustavo Ferreira says: February 7, 2019 at 3:52 pm What about Robocop? Reply Gustavo Ferreira says: February 7, 2019 at 3:55 pm I think it has more to do with the story, Batman will or will not going to be a superhero depending if he is or isn't in a superhero movie, making him a superhero and McGaiver not. Reply nerdyravenclaw says: February 16, 2019 at 6:58 pm A super hero to me.A super hero to me is some one who inspires hope.Someone who makes you wont to be better,to be like them So yes batman may be a hero to me because he makes me want to be like him but some may not want to be like him so he's not a super hero to them Harry potter may be a superhero to you but not to me. Reply Big Banana says: February 18, 2019 at 1:58 pm My definition for a superhero is a creature that is a bit more than a normal human physically or has tools that increase his ability and is using it for good things. Or marketed as a superhero. Reply Dumisa Nzama says: March 2, 2019 at 2:30 am Batman has super powers. He has super strength, agility and endurance. It is literally impossible for a human to be Batman's size, and be as strong and fast as he is. MMA fighters who have been training since they were children, could not take batman. Reply Echo Chambers says: March 24, 2019 at 10:24 am If you’re a Millennial you can’t answer this unless you ask your Parents Opinion first.Then have ur Mom constantly tell you you’re a Hero and she’ll make you lunch,so go back to Fortnite. Reply Andrew Dubya says: April 18, 2019 at 4:57 pm Hulk replaced with Sully Alternate Universe when? Reply Wolf NZ Outdoors says: April 20, 2019 at 8:26 pm I had almost completely expunged bat-nipples from my memory and you went and ruined it! Reply Mod Maker says: April 21, 2019 at 6:19 pm Batman/Bruce Wayne does have one Superpower: Intelligence Reply Jesse the Lawless says: May 12, 2019 at 11:28 am Superhero is a loose term now Reply Jesse the Lawless says: May 12, 2019 at 11:29 am Batman is consistent crime fighter if that not a super I don't know what is Reply Nodak81 says: May 26, 2019 at 12:49 am Considering that his only power is being filthy rich, I say he's not even a regular hero, he's just delusional. Real superheroes have bizarre powers that thrust them into the limelight whether they want it or not. Batman had to spend millions and purposely put himself in the limelight just to get attention to help temporarily alleviate his daddy issues. Not to mention that all Batman ever does 99% of the time is protect one city. Superheroes save planets and even the whole universe from time to time. Reply spyboy1964 says: June 2, 2019 at 7:25 am Are Hercules and Achilles superheroes? Reply Leaf Finite says: June 23, 2019 at 6:06 am I think its based on the way a character is written. Reply Caleb Williams says: June 27, 2019 at 4:02 pm Batman is a Superhero He doesn't need any Superpowers to be a Superhero Reply Lars Konzack says: July 27, 2019 at 5:47 am If Batman is a superhero then The Phantom is a superhero which means Superman is not the first superhero. Reply Guilty Legion says: July 31, 2019 at 2:21 pm NerdSync: is Batman superhero? Everyone: he is BATMAN! Reply Jonathan van der Zee says: August 2, 2019 at 4:17 pm just one criteria: the plural of jedi is still jedi Reply Virginia Urbina says: August 2, 2019 at 8:42 pm Hi Reply Vladimir Olivares says: August 4, 2019 at 9:05 pm Most people don't consider that the setting of a world may be a major factor in deciding what makes a superhero. You're only "super" in comparison to the people around you. Most superhero fiction is set in contemporary worlds with normal people walking around. Gandalf has lots of cool powers, but he's not that unique or any more heroic than other characters in Middle-Earth. He'd definitely be a superhero if he ran around New York. Reply TheDarkTicoKnight12 says: October 11, 2019 at 2:19 am He's just a hero who is among superpowered people thanks to his training and dedication. Reply franklin shi says: October 15, 2019 at 4:15 am batman's real power is the power of being rich Reply Rayes Alnasra says: October 15, 2019 at 9:41 pm no one fking cares Reply Roi Bar-Yosef says: October 16, 2019 at 8:50 pm I think the best definition for a Super-hero is:"Someone who possesses superpowers, or physical/mental abilities that are far beyond normal humans' abilities. He must have a super-hero identity which is a theme he goes by ,even if his real identity isn't secret, and must use his powers to try and protect people on a regular basis." Reply Q-Ba says: November 15, 2019 at 5:08 am Batman is a vigilante because what he does is highly illegal. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
