@queenbella9474.45062 Welcome to the family. Glad you’re here.
Welcome to the community @queenbella9474.45062! You’ve found the right place to discuss all things DC-related (and Batman-related, of course); wealth is certainly an interesting superpower.
Please let the moderator team know if you need anything!
My wealth is super bottomless.

Case closed, eh? Airtight reasoning.
The Jury has ruled that YES, Batman is a superhero… at least in our hearts
Granted I am a biased juror.
As long as it’s in the majority, I think we win!
This is my answer, that I pulled off of Websters dictionary,
: a fictional hero having extraordinary or superhuman powers also :
an exceptionally skillful or successful person
While part one would make it a big old NO, the second part of the definition clearly makes it a big OLD YES for ME.
Batman IS a hero. Batman is not bulletproof or has super speed or flight or any other cool powers that Superman, a nobody-doubts-it superhero does. However, he risks his life to save Gotham.
Let me explain:
A hero used to be someone who successfully made a name for themselves in a small town. A football or baseball or soccer star. A celebrity. Someone looked up to by the others for being good at something.
After 9/11, and especially with the COVID pandemic, the meaning of a “Hero” changed. A hero is not a football star anymore. Paramedics. Doctors. Nurses. Firefighters. Police officers. Teachers. They are all heroes. Even jobs that one use to think were not heroic like retail store workers, janitors, and fast-food workers are hailed as heroes during this pandemic. Frontline workers who risk their lives and go the extra mile for the greater good.
Thank you, I’m glad to be here I’m sorry it took soo long.
