Superhero vs. Vigilante

Is Batman a superhero, or a vigilante?

By definition, he's a vigilante. But, you won't convince a lot of people that he isn't really a superhero. Either way, he's my favorite whatever-he-is..

That's all part of Batman's appeal, he is a very human figure.

I say both. I love Batman. I especially like Alfred. Alfred is so great; humorous really.

he is a vigilante plain and simple in almost all of the books he has a very violent end all be all attitude without the actually killing part. but is probably one of the only normal humans that could take on a superhuman with a great possiblity of winning and that does include superman

batman is a spoiled rich-bitch that likes to dress in latex and play with gadgets that he bought from the sharper image catalog. he's like the michael jackson of superhero's; a rich middle aged man who hangs out with a small boy and plays with neat-o toys.

Those aren't super powers. they're just highly trained skills.

One of these movie making studios need to make a movie of Batman - Knightfall.

Well... in the comic books, he turned into the Dark Knight after Robin was killed. And in my opinion, that's when he turned from superhero to vigilante. Too bad they ruined the storyline.

i think that kinda heightened his vigelante status. after all, the whole reason he went into the business was to get revenge (although not killing revenge) upon the kind of people who killed his parents by bringing them to justice. and a person who takes the law into his own hands, for their own satisfaction, is kinda a vigelante. of course with most of them he sets them up to be caught by the law, which is kinda a wussy half assed vigilante.

to me a superhero is someone with superhuman abilities. of course some superheros (superman) are not human, but still, have abilities far superior to those of a normal person. the hero, is basically doing good. putting themselves on the line to help others. heroic acts, heroic doings etc. the superhero coming about because they are someone who does amazing heroic things, with their superior abilities.

batman is someone who does heroic things, and has heightened abilities. but not superhuman. he's just learned to use his human form and unlock more of its potential.

the question being, when does someone become a superhero? when are their abilities seen as superhuman?

but the reason for bruce wayne's actions, the cause of him going out and doing such things (catching criminals) comes from the rage inside him at his parents murder. he wants to bring justice to those who do such things.

he's just a man in a suit hiding behind an alter ego to punish bad men.

Vigilante. And a badass vigilante at that. And I just watched Batman as well (the 1966 movie w. Adam West & Burt Ward. Not a huge fan of the newer batmans.)

Batman has no superpowers, might I add.

Can't fly, no superhuman strength.

Vigilante to the max.

..is it just wishful thinking, or was the older portrayal of Joker uber-gay?

..watching the old television show On Demand right now..

..perhaps the old Joker was a pioneer for today's homosexual ilk..the hand gestures and dialogue would certainly add a bit o' credit to that..
