He's not all of the above.

The guy dressed as a bat and who still wears underwear over his tights wins. I stand corrected. Sorry.

He's kinda the real deal in being the desired man. Plus he's the alpha hero in a room of heroic beings with 70% of them being goddamn afraid of him despite being literally planet busters.

Bump, I suppose it's because he's the ultimate man fantasy that's perceived as a ideal in the real world and not a context involving imaginary wish fufillment. Don't get me wrong not saying Batman isn't one big ol wish fufillment like the other big hero names, he's is, but he's more a wish fufillment centered around adulthood in the real world than in a typical kiddy fashion or some American theme and principle regarding hand fed morals.

Superman and Captain America is an example of a prideful belief in American ideals and moral codes, but they ain't got any humanity in being superhuman, they're escapism candy with born or given powers to do justice, with the generic Jesus temperaments to act a simple act of heroism. Bruce is a self made ultimate life form that approaches a godly standard compared to us, he represents pure hard work and peak human ability to work in the actual superhuman community in performing heroics, that is why Batman is alpha and the women desire him, he is a our own concept of being a super human hero in our terms.

As for attitude, looks, charm, and sex appeal. Bruce is basically James Bond in with a vampire cape, Sherlock as a master ninja, and Zorro as a rich goth. He's just a guy who does everything we can do better(the personification of human achievement and order), as a metaphor for being a superpower with near perfect behavior, than any superhero like Spider-man who has powers and no manhood Iron man who's rich but immature pervert. Bruce is the desire to be in control and provide and protect anyone who needs him, like a alpha wolf. Women view a extremely confident protector and natural progression in being powerful the ultimate sex instinct. Bats knows what he wants and what he'll do to get it, Characters like Peter and Barry(the flash) are always selfishly impulsive in being unfocused when they act for others for others and can't hold much confidence in when they do focus on the bigger picture due to their emotional baggage, insecurity and indecisiveness. It's a miracle they have female companion to begin with, meanwhile Bruce is determined and unflappable to the point of obsession in keeping his composure in order to self improve his hidden flaws and focus on the main scope of importance, women love a guy who conquers his own demons in order to be better and more productive in her eyes, to protect her, provide and possibly show fatherly love in future parent hood.

Plus he's Batman, he's rich and nuts.

This question itself its projecting a lot from a self-centered standpoint, no offense. And it’s kind of immature to generalize the sort of "ideal men" that women like.

Why not ask yourself, why do you like Batman? And not even among fanboys, there is "one" absolute answer for that. I think girls and women can like and love superheroes the same way boys do. It’s all about exposition and Batman is the most popular and marketable character that there is.

Just because Batman it’s an exaggerated man in a fantasy world it doesn't necessarily mean that girls that are fans of him feel sexually attracted or fantasize to date or be wooed by someone like him. That's absurd and not even realistic. Sometimes fans are just that, fans. And fans may love a certain character, perhaps because they relate to the world, the personality, the struggle or simply, they just find that character interesting. The gender of those fans has nothing to do with that.

My young niece loves Batman very much, in fact, she likes him more than Wonder Woman. But that doesn't mean that it is because she finds Batman " a hot dude" just because she is a girl. None of us is restricted to love a character because of our gender. A boy can love Wonder Woman as much and not being interested in male superheroes.

However, being a fantasy character, it allows the freedom for people to say things like, yeah, he is hot or something like that. Just like skimpy Catwoman it said to be the fantasy wet dream for boys.

I like the Joker, so... I don't really have an answer for you.

Maybe we women just like the strong smart types?
