Over-rated no. Un-beatable, no...I mean Bane proved this (...and he was just a man on Venom). Powerful in his own rite: Yes.
I would say that there are ALOT of Metahumans that he could defeat with prep time. Hell, as well equipped as he is, I'd say there are a lot of Metahumans he could defeat in an "on the fly" confrontation. Superman is a character way out of Batman's league in personal power level, but Batman has subdued him when required. Hell Superman has entrusted Bruce/Batman to "put him down" when and if anything ever happens that may/might require his defeat and or death. This clearly says that Superman/Clark, thinks that Bruce/Batman possesses the ability to see it done.
Bottom line, like him or not....the Batman is a bad@$$.
Well, let me say this, gents; some people really seem to have a lot of fun trying to prove someone's opinion wrong. I saw ths pictures. They're great, I LOVE them! Thanks for posting them. Someone said that I was getting pretty heated for a person who stated that others are getting heated, and that we need to not do that or something like that. I haven't been getting heated. If anyone disagrees with me on that, I am more than willing to hear your replies. I welcome anyone who wants to disagree with me on that. I asked people to prove me wrong, because so many people were saying that he's lost fights before. Well that doesn't really help me, now does it? I'm looking for dates, times, and issue titles and numbers. And for the record, I have never once said that Batman is completely undefeated. I've asked when, where, and by whom he's been defeated, but I've never said that no one has beaten him. I've been trying to find out if he's been beaten. Personally after some slams against me on here, I think some people really look up to the wrong people. I mean if someone who's 19, has been on here for barely 7 months, has posted almost 5000 times, and talks down to me, probably doesn't have many skills that many people in the real world would consider valuable. I mean if he happened to be, say, a student, I wonder how much time he (or she) would spend studying or in class. Kinda made me wonder a little bit, that's all. Anyone care to comment on anything I've posted here?
If you were really just asking questions instead of making a claim, you wouldn't say "prove me wrong" because you don't prove questions wrong, you prove statements wrong. And again, if you were really asking questions, why fight so hard when answers are given? You can hide your accusations behind "I was just asking" if you want to, it really doesn't matter, but let me respond to what's aimed specifically at me. I don't know why my life is any concern of yours, but don't worry, I'm a big boy, I can budget my time wisely and handle my real life, so relax, I'll be fine. If you feel the need to try to insult me because I spend time here, then that's your problem. I do wonder why you repeatedly try to call me out though, when I'm not the only person supplying proof that disagrees with what you're saying.
I really hate when somebody attacks the number of posts somebody has and how much time they spend on the vine. Its a cool site with lots of cool people (and some not) and lots of things to do, if your a comicbook fan I'd say its thee premium place to be. If I was Buck I'd be a little creeped out that you pay so much attention to how I spend my time. I thought you were a self proclaimed Jesus freak, so next time you get owned in a debate just ask yourself, what would Jesus do?
My turn to weigh in I think, because I can. We all agree that you can hate Batman if you want, but much like the Superman threads, you shouldn't be be making baseless claims about the character and not expect them to be challenged. You said that you do not like him because he is never beaten.
The Time Keeper says:
" My problem, as I've stated in several threads, dozens of times, is that DC makes Batman out to be virtually invincible. That's a boring and stupid storyline, to me."
The Time Keeper says:
" When has Batman been truly and completely beaten other than when he fought Bane? (which to me doesn't really count because he'd gone for like a week without sleep)
Others in this thread have posted examples of Batman being beaten both in terms of fights and personally. Flick back, you'll see them. If you still don't like him, fine, but just admit that it's not for that reason. There are characters I don't like, but I don't go harping on about them. Looking back at this thread, it does look like you target Buckshot most of the time. He's not the only one who disagreed with you.
The Time Keeper says:
" For us adults who make our own living, we can do what we want on here.
So, all the kids and teenagers are what? Playing in our sandbox? Are any of us paying for this? We'd better make sure they all know and are appreciate that everytime time they post, they're using our space. I missed that part in the new users FAQ. Maybe we should PM the Cap, tell him to put it in.

At least I can form a sentence and spell all the words in it. That and I only comment about people that are still posting on the vine. Now calm down, from the way you're stressing out in your post it looks like you need to relax a little before you have a mental break down.
Prodigious Man says:
"This whole thread has become a disappointment to me for myriad reasons. I hope it gets better, and hope it has a good ending."
We should come up with a couple of endings and get people to vote for their favourite. That'll be good for ratings.

Very nice Cosmic. That's a great idea but I almost have to see what Time Keeper has to say now. His personal attacks are truly pointless and I wonder what he has to say in his defence. Though I could have definitely done without the whole blowup this afternoon.

I am also interested in hearing what else he has to say.

I see TK and Zee giving us one last, defiant, "screw you guys" post. Then hopping in their '66 Tbird, giving each other one long, charged, glance before cheering maniacally and driving off over a cliff in a blaze of glory as the rest of the vine stares on.
