Batman is a fictional character, a comic book superhero, who unlike most superheroes nowadays, is a human and doesn't possess superpowers such as incredible strength and x-ray vison, etc. When, Bruce Wayne, the man behind the mask, was little his parents were killed. Bruce inherited his father's company and became an overnight bachelor. This was the perfect cover up because who would believe a bachelor like Bruce spends his nights beating bad guys to a pulp with his bare hands and a few gadgets. Bruce doesn't become Batman until he reaches his prime or his late 20's. The Dark Knight faces countless obstacles such as very well-known villains such as The Joker, Two-Face, Bane, The Penguin, etc. He also has a couple flings or short-termed romances with bizarre women such as Catwoman and Talia al Ghul. Batman is the greatest comic book hero of all time, in my opinion, because he is just as human as everyone else except, he fights to make the world a better place.
