Batman already happened in New York. Here is the article...

An obsessed crimefighter is roaming the streets of New York City at night beating up burglars, muggers and drug dealers — while wearing a costume just like the movie superhero Batman!

“This fellow is a one-man vigilante team,” a police insider said. “Last week he broke into a crack house and beat the hell out of a couple of well-known drug dealers.

“We have a dozen witnesses who have seen the fellow in the last two weeks and they all say the same thing: The guy’s a bodybuilder, he’s dressed up in a black outfit with a cape and wears a mask just like Batman wore in the movies.”

The mysterious figure’s most highly publicized act of heroism came last week when he broke up an armed robbery at a fast-food restaurant, knocking out two would-be robbers in the process. “When our officers arrived on the scene one of the thieves was unconscious and the other was so groggy that he didn’t know where he was,” the police source said. “This Batman fellow had worked them over pretty good.”

Officials are unsure how to deal with the crimefighter, who has gained a devoted cult following in some New York neighborhoods. “Our problem is that this guy is breaking the law, but if we throw him in jail we’ll look like the bad guys,” the anonymous policeman said.

“But we can’t allow him to go around making his own laws. And the fact that he wears a superhero costume shows that he is probably mentally unstable.”

Police psychologists say the real-life Batman fits the profile of an angry crime victim who is fighting back.

“You see this a lot when someone has been victimized. But this guy is obviously obsessed in a twisted, almost frightening kind of way. It appears he truly believes he is Batman.”

Witnesses say the Batman is highly skilled in the martial arts and has no trouble overpowering the criminals he attacks. “One couple said they were being mugged when the Batman jumped out from behind a tree, kicked the gun from the mugger’s hand, put him into a headlock and rammed him into a tree.”

“But in that case, as always, by the time the police got there the Batman was gone.”

The cops would probably catch him pretty quick. You don't just dress up in a suit and go around beating the shit out of people and get away with it, even if the people are crooks. The first time he used the batmobile would be his last, the police choppers and cars would be all over him. He'd be wanted for numerous counts of assualt and battery.

Not only that, but if you spend enough time kicking people in the face, eventually you'd end up killing one of them...then our Batman would be wanted for murder. In the end though, even if he miraculously managed to avoid the police, he wouldn't be able to take on more than one or two fairly in shape guys at once...that's just how it works in comics and movies. Three or more thugs get the drop on him and he'd be dead.


Perhaps a group of Batmen, working like ninjas, would be possible for a short while. But again, it's just a matter of time before one of them chews a bullet, no matter how good they are. And in real life, leaving bodies lying around is much more of a problem then it is in comicbook world.

No, you would be the joke of the town.

Headlines:
"Nerd running around town thinking he is batman"

Become your own superhero.

Oh and just a word of advice: if you are surrounded by thugs, keep in mind they don't take turns attacking so you can make a cool move like in the movies, they come at you at once making cheap shots, and the next thing you know you are lying on the grown in your homemade batsuit groaning just in time for some reporter with a camera to catch you and go "What a Scoop!"

next day headlines:

"local batman, or nerd if you will, is a p*ssy"

Oh and for some reason I have a hard time beleiving people with money would really care to do such a thing. "I kind of feel like becoming batman, but screw it, lets go buy jet skis."

Oh and BatDude, find a copy of that article that isn't attached to a message board or some lame website. It sound more like one of those joke newspapers like, THE ONION.

I don't care how great a shape a person is in, the immense amount of physical power required and the feats involved--as typically depicted--would wear down the toughest person relatively fast. That's what was so cool about, Kingdom Come was it? With an older Bruce depicted as nearly crippled by all the years of being Bat. Anyway, research any great athlete, and you will find a host of injuries along the way to greatness, which is itself typically short-lived, a few years tops.
As for his motivation: that can be as much a liability as an asset. It can push you or drain you. Yeah, I think Batman is possible, but not as a career.

Batman could be a one time thing, like revenge on a murderer, revenge on robber of most loved object, etc.

The chances of some rich man becoming Batman are pretty even. However, if he were to choose to become Batman then it would be just another example of life immitating art. Meaning that the rich guy would base his personality on the premise of the Comic Book Character Batman. Other characters that could become real are the following:

Hush
Scarecrow
Ra's al Ghul
Catwoman
Robin
Batgirl (Not Barbara Gordon)
Lady Shiva
Harvey Bullock
Harley Quinn
Lucius Fox

Characters less likely to become real would be:

Bane
The Joker
Poison Ivy
The Penguin
Black Mask
Killer Croc
James Gordon
Mr Freeze
Clayface

From fiction to real life...drastic changes would happen. But the chances of some actor becoming a clay menace are very slim and next to impossible....maybe somewhere in the future...maybe.

It's from The Weekly World News, like I said. Occassionally a story escapes from it's natural WWN habitat and makes it into normal headlines, scaring everyone with it's presence.

The "smart cloth" that forms his cape actually exists for base-jumpers and other assorted things...it could be used to glide from rooftops. Lightweight bullet-proof Kevlar armor also exists. Some reasonable replacements for batarangs and such could be made easily. Other non-bat-gadgets could complete the arsenal (random grenades and stuff).

Given the money and the will to do it, Batman as we saw him in the movie could actually exist. It would be much harder to accomplish than the movie portrays, but it's well within the realm of possibility....at least I think so.

Thought? Musings? Confessions of "I am Batman" or "Damn, you ruined my plan Digi..."?? Discuss...

-DM
Not impossible, but you'd need a better mask that covers your entire face(see Nighthawk from Supreme Power). It'd also be very difficult and dangerous. You'd probably end up in jail or dead. Most likely one and then the other
