here, how does this sound...i just wrote it up a few hours ago

Batman

Real Name: Bruce Wayne
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 210lbs.
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown


Powers/Abilities:

Although Batman does not have any 'superpowers', he has elevated himslef to near superhuman status through years of rigorous training. Through these years of training, he has obtained peak human strength, agility and skills in acrobatics. On some occassions, Batman has been known to be able to perform humanly impossible feats such as punching through brick walls or kicking down trees. He is a master of 127 different forms of martial arts, thus making him a very unpredictable opponent to his enemies. Batman was also trained as a League of Shadow ninja assasin, becoming a master of stealth, and escape artistry, thus having the effect as being "invisible." Through years of deep study, he has become one of the world's greatest scientists, criminalologists, tacticians and detectives and a master of disguise as well. The Batman has the power of fear and can invoke it upon the hearts of criminals and grow as a wraith in their minds much like the wrath of God.

Gadgets/Weapons/Eqiupment:

Batman vowed to never take up firearms as a way to help him fight crime, because that's how his parents got murdered. So, among many of his gadgets include: Bulletproof and fire-resistant Nomex survival suit spray-painted black for stealth, bulletproof kevlar reinforced graphite cowl with an earphone able to hear up to 4,920 feet, "memory cloth" cape which gives him flight, Utility belt with batarangs(bat-shaped ninja shurikens which also act as a boomerang), grapple gun, mini-mines, explosive packets, gas capsules, acetylene torch, fingerprint kit, flexible periscope, single marble (used as a decoy for someone walking down stairs), pick locks, cell phone and a medikit. Batman's other gadgets include: sonic sounders(high frequency devices which irritate bats, thus attracting thousands of them for distraction), ninja spiked boots for scaling buildings, blade gauntlets and a lead shot in both gloves giving him an added punch. Batman also has 'The Tumbler' Batmobile with a 1500hp jet turbine engine making it go from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and exceed speeds of over 200 mph. It also has tank-like armor, dual machine gun turrets, and missle launchers, and a propane rocketfuel afterburner which shoots a flame out of the back making it clear large gaps, if needed.

not to be a d*ck, but u just wrote it up a few hours ago?
why do i feel like i've read it somewhere before?

i hope u were the one who edited it for Wikipedia because a lot of the lines were very similar...like the excerpt below:

he has elevated himself to near-superhuman status through years of rigorous training. Physically he is at the peak of human ability in dozens of areas, most notably martial arts, acrobatics, strength, and escape artistry. Intellectually he is just as peerless, being at once one of the world's greatest scientists, criminologists, and tacticians, as well as a master of disguise. Given his lack of superpowers, he often uses cunning and planning to outwit his foes, rather than simply out-fighting them.

good summary, nonetheless smile

yea i guess i took a few words from wikipedia to guide me then i just kinda customized it from there, including all the gadgets he used in Batman Begins and most of the gadgets in the Batman Training Manual wink

ManBat
cool. cool

Can I just p[oint out, if those stats are based oin BB, then lots of them arent canon. Yes, in BB they're corect but... he does not have a memory cloth cape. He was not trained by the League. And who says his height is 6"2?

SpyCspider
i think in one of those DC big book manuals on Batman, it states his height as being 6' 2''.

shrugs

Knightfall93
No, Im not arguing with that... i dunno b;ut I believe you, height isnt v. important... (EXCEPT IN JOKER!)

the thing with the marble for fooling people into thinking someone is walking down the stairs is a genius idea.

also marble is one of those words that the more you look at it and say it the weirder it gets.

Spam? What are you talking about you absolute goon???

It was a simple statement that when compared to some of the guff posted on these boards was pretty much Shakespearean in comparison.

His hair isn't really brown, is it?

nate100
Im pretty sure it's meant to be jet black, in the comics at least.

In BB thou Chritian Bales hair is brown & i guess there isn't really much you can do about that. Apart from clouring it obviously.

Knightfall93
