bales batman could NOT do that. cmon. and ppl say he's so close to the comics . for one thing, ITS A COMIC BOOK. and if the hero's gotta be human, they'll make him the "strongest human ever" type. but 1000 pounds??? pfft, cmon, bruce would have to look like arnold (when he first got big) or something, and boy would THAT give away his "scecret identity", lol.
sorry for ranting, but i just thought of that. i really dont care how much he "presses" as long as he kicks butt good
well batman can put himself into a ninja trance that increases his adrenaline and strength while negating his pain receptors and such... he can only do it for a limited amount of time 5-8 minutes... but he can do it.... and you don't have to look like arnold to be strong... I was one of the smallest guys in my lifting class and I lifted twice as much as some ofthe guys that were 3 times my size... it's all about how you train..and we all know batman knows how to do that.

Yes I remember that. He heald up a cieling . On that deadlift thing he was trying to save a girl. He tore a ligament in his shoulder. He was so pissed he couldn't save the girl. He took steroids. Got addicted to them asked Alfred to lock him in the Batcave for 30 days and not let him out it was an interesting issue. I think it was more like a leverage thing not a strength issue though.
THose were issue from back in the day. You are dating yourself. was .

As I understand it, Batman is at peak Human level. He weighs about--what? 225? The strongest weightlifters in that class can lift about twice that over head--and that's their specialty! Batman is more like a decathalon champ, not so specialized, so I'd be surprised if he could military press more than 400-500 lbs. Supporting a weight is another story, especially if you are relying on your back and legs. I believe that Guiness lists Sri Chimnoy as the human who has lifted the most weight ever (by about one inch, using basically his legs): about 7000 pounds. So, I guess we have a lot of room to play here. BTW, I read somewhere years ago, that the average man can military press about 100 pounds for a 1 rep max (wt of average man about 150 pounds). That would make Batman minimally 4 times stronger than the average joe. Hmm. I wonder if his utility belt doubles as a lifter's belt...
Shinier than a speeding bullet.
According to comic book physics, 1,000 pounds would be the peak human limit. Batman could lift a 1,000 object over his head. Now, I am sure his Ninja training helps him to overcome his human limitations.
yea^ probably not 1000...thats a little over peak human...like mainstream said he can prolly bench 500-600 lbs....cuz ive played football and worked out and i know how much people can bench....and it is highly unlikely for ur biggest, heftiest, fattest strongest lineman in highschool football to lift over 500...and batman's not fat at ne means at all....and the strongest people in the NFL can lift around 700, and theyre all fatass linemen.....
and anyways also, like jinzin says, he can prolly get into a ninja trance state of mind n do some crazy shyt like kick down trees or punch through walls.....ionno just my opinion after seein what yall've said and what ive seen in movies
You can't punch or kick down a tree, even in a ninja trance, the body, unless superhuman durability and density would crumble like bread crumbs.
Even though batman is a comic book peakhuman, he still can't kick down a tree of that size, especially not in one kick.
His leg would've shattered to pieces on the inside and the tree wouldn't have did more than shake one time.
That is bullshit,dude.
You can only do so much, even if you master mind over matter/combat ki/iron body/iron body shaolin/ or even self hypnosis.
The body can only sustain so much. Batman is no exeption, his body isn't superhuman only peakhuman, if thats the case those lazziass slack writers/creators need to change his profile bio stat ffom peakhuman to low-level superhuman, ita damn misleading and not fair to the comic book fans.
You have someone who shouldn't be able to do this and that,according to their bio and physicall makeup, then, he is somehow able to do things that are way way way way way way out of his physical league, its ridiculous.
If they make that exeption for batman, then they need to just draw alfred up lifting a building or maybe marvel should have spiderman lifting 150 billion ton mountain.
That shit sickens me.
Stick to the character bio stats if you're gonna have him do insane level shit at least give a good reason/give him an upgrade/ or something.
Don't just have him doing it cause "ummmm he's batman".
