I wanted to see why people think Batman is so cool. He is an icon, and the favorite character of many (he is one of my favorite characters, don't get me wrong), but what has Batman remained so cool over the years?
Why is Batman so cool?
" I once had this theory that the reason Batman made the first Robin wear the chain mail speedo and the pixie shoes just so he'd look cooler by comparison cause for what other possible reason would a crime fighter wear pixie shoes "Dick's said multiple times of his costume;
"Sure, everyone mocks me for the pixie boots and green underwear, but I have never been seriously wounded; because a crim thinks twice when he eyes a flying mess of colours coming at him" (Quote obviously paraphrased, but that's the gist)
It's becuz of everything he's been through, everything he's done, and everything he's capable of doing. He changes with the era and always becomes a becon of light or darkness, whatever you want to say. He doesn't kill but he finds a way to get the things done that need to be. The DC universe is a much better place for having him and even if it's not always Bruce under the mask, his legacy will live on forever.
"I think Batman is only cool because he is forced on people. There are plenty of other characters that have little to no powers, and there are other characters that get stuff done, but Batman gets the most exposure in TV and movies. "
Yeah and superman and spiderman are only so known cause they are forced on to people too.
