    Whatcha eatin'?

    Super Heros or Just Heros?

    Well, I know what you mean, and my answer to the question is "no". But to get all philosophical on it, I would say that while Batman doesn't have supernatural powers, he does have superior powers, in that his combination of natural genius, physical and mental training, drive and honor (and...
