^dude, thats not real, they rig those concrete bricks in a way so u can break them...and the boards, you hit them at a certain angle to where they break.....j's right, batman's pretty bad, but hes no superman or spiderman
Batman in regard to the Marvel universe is significantly stronger than Daredevil, as seen in Marvel vs. DC where he knocked out Bullseye in one punch. Secondly he is marginally stronger than Captain America.
Also in the real world people have been know to do incredible feats of strengths under pressure, like lifting a car for several hours straight so it wouldn't crush a woman to death, and stuff like that so relating that to the comic books, maybe Batman could have held 1000pounds... but he should have broken his legs in the process :P
I'm not sure about the next bit I'll say, but during 1996 didn't Captain America still have Super Strength? if thats true then Batman is pretty freaking strong for your usual dude.
My Marvel isn't so great, but I don't think Cap ever had "super" strength. The super-serum just allowed him to reach full human potential, as I recall: so he's about strong as a non-superpowered man can be.
Well, like I said my Marvel isn't that great. That's how I understand it, but, like you said, that doesn't mean he can't do things in a comic book we would consider superhuman. That might be the source of the misconception as people could figure the super-serum made him superhuman to explain it. Or I could just be wrong. I'm a Batman man myself: never read much of the boyscouts.
There is one thing I have a problem with is that Batman is supposed to be 6'2" 210lbs being that strong and the way he looks in the comics there is no way he's only 210 im thinkin 230-240 he's not the only one with weight errors there's no way Nightwing is only 5'10" 175lbs (maybe 190 at least and realisticly more like 210)
there's a slight difference between weights of the US and UK, as one american mate came over and we went to a gym, get a good workout, i was benching 200 pounds, and he said he did the same, when he went to do it, he managed half a rep, lol, i was in stiches, he went and asked the manager the weights must be too heavy than what's on the side, the manger explained that weight is measured different in UK, so 200 pounds here is around 175pounds in US, strange eh, so in comics he really does about 850 pounds above his head and that. still strong as buggery tho
lol also every superhero in the comics look like bodybuilders, big arms, legs, huge back muscles, and shoulders, and the women all look like them beauty body builders, that dance on stage, must be what is seen as perfect for a superhero
When you consider how he kicked through that tree, its pretty weird, but what's really stupid is that that was Year One! he had much less strength and skill then so it DOES NOT make sense! But, yeah, Bats is pretty freakin' strong and, hey, its a comic guy, he can do whatever the writer says he can do. Though I gotta say Frank Miller's turned Batman into an abusive paedophile with Allstar so maybe we should ignore that tree thing As "Miller Madness"!
Thanks to Badwolf for the great sig!
