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?

He's the most inhuman of all the heroes, yet he has no powers.

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)

@joshmightbe: Basically, yeh. You see Batman lunging at you, your reaction is "holy ****" and you shoot your gun. You see some little weirdo in pixie boots your first reaction is to go "what the hell?". Then he kicks you in the face.

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.

Because he doesn't need powers to be a hero and he fights crime, because he wants to. He's pretty got everything he needs to kick ass.

honestly i only like batman in his solo shows/movies. couldnt care less about him when u start involving him with the rest of the DC universe.

 

but to me what makes him so cool is the fact that his arch nemesis is a psychotic clown...

This may sound redundant, but I'd say he is so cool because he is always written as cool and in control. Always. In every situation against any enemy and any number of odds. 
I agree he IS cool, but at the same time I don't think of him as an engaging character. Is that weird?

Because no other superhero is like Batman. He has some of the best villains , lovers , equipment , allies , and costumes. His Batarangs are also very popular. He is a man amoungst gods but sometimes he makes the gods look like men.
