    Apparently the writers didn't feel the need to stop at just one.  As the Insider Suit had Batgirl comparing him to Amazo. 
     
    As far as the readers are concerned, even a completely subtle and passive "non-power" like probability manipulation, enhanced intelligence, etc. would make Batman much less interesting.

    I dont know if any of you read manga but in Rosario vampire there is this power(jugen hou) that allows the user to delay theyre existance. it gives them intangability, and a some-what teleport.

    NICE! 
     
    In all seriousness, probabl teleporting. Sometimes it seems he already has it, as long as no one is looking. Like Michael Myers. You never see Myers run, but you drive miles away from him and turn a corner then BANG there he is.

    Ok well most will agree that half of batmans appeal is that he doesn't have a super power. But if I HAD to give him one for some very strange reason it would be Intuitive engineering akin to Forge of the marvel universe. This would just trick him out with a cooler cat plane etc and all in all it would just give his standard genius a helping hand.

    I would make him unable to be attacked by viruses, bacteria or poisons. So basically up his immune system to invulnerable.

    Giving Batman a superpower violates the very being of Batman. He is not supposed to have powers. I can't imagine him with any. If I must address the question, however, I would say flight, because he is a bat. However, he manages to fly pretty well without it.

    Batman is just too epic for superpowers, but if he got one, I can see him with an ability to create mirages, or transforming himself into a swarm of bats to get around.

    Batman can already own any comicbook character ever! This man lost his parents when he was 10, had his back broken over Bane's knee, friggin DIED and did it all in spandex. NO POWERS NECESSARY.

     He might be getting powers if the latest Brightest Day is any indication, the ending has Deadman and Dove looking for the bearer/guardian of the white ring and then the bat signal appears in the sky and then he states that the ring was waiting for Batman all this time.

    Didn't they give him a white ring? As if he didn't already have the best technology now he gets it from space. If I could give him a super power it would be healing factor. Not as strong as Wolverines but enough. He'd really freak out his enemies then.

    Batman with superpowers sucks.  His appeal lies in the fact that he's a man who's trained and studied to achieve what he has and that, conceivably, we could as well.
