At times yes and often depending on the writing. I love Batman but for awhile in the Justice League comics, with all these people and great warriors and planners, they always and I mean always turned to Batman for a plan. I think that writers go to him as an easy plot mover. But over all he is simply the Bat God.

@FadeToBlackBolt: I've loved him since I was a kid, and he's always been in my top 5.

@Sexy Merc: You have good taste. What Kyle is to you, Bruce is to me :) 
#14 Posted by Sexy Merc (42071 posts) - - Show Bio
@FadeToBlackBolt: Nice, though to be honest, Kyle, Wally, Bruce and Clark have always been on the same level for me.
#15 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23334 posts) - - Show Bio
@Sexy Merc: Well, they are (in my opinion) along with Diana and Peter Parker, the best characters in comicdom. =)
#16 Posted by Sexy Merc (42071 posts) - - Show Bio
@FadeToBlackBolt: I'd add in Steve and Matt.

I admit Batman was never my favorite although I recognize his value. Batman:TAS was one of my favorites when I was a kid. And no he isn't overrated.

@Sexy Merc: Yeah, fair call, I forgot about them.

if Bats wasn't awesome, he couldn't do this:

@FadeToBlackBolt: I guess that's cool, but I always liked Bruce's character when he was single. I don't like the idea of him having relationships/sex to be honest, as weird as it sounds.

@Sexy Merc: It's just proving that women cross companies to get a piece of the Bat  ;)
 
As for Bruce being single, I like his and Selina's relationship, where they're back and forth, but never really together.

@FadeToBlackBolt: Haha, fair enough.
 
I like that too.

The smug look on his face makes me think its Dick not Bruce, heh. But yes always been my top character, for reasons that I choose not too list here as I have other things to do today.

I don't think he's overrated, but he like other characters, does get a good deal of hate because he has such a wide appeal. I've been a fan ever since I was very young and saw the Tim Burton Batman movie. I just can't get enough of the character and like most if not all of the other characters associated with him.
