Batman's technology...

#1 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

ok, i thought i'd bring this issue up as it seems not many people know about it...

Batman has access to healing technology from Kandor, sold to him by Kara Zor-El that is capable of healing him from anything.

it was explained as 'rewriting his dna on the fly', effectively rendering Batman completely immortal in a combat scenario...

now, here's the big question... do we actually could this technology as being 'in use' in a battle scenario?

I think we should wait and see if Batman ever uses it.

Wait it re-writes his DNA , why not just use it to turn his full DNA?

The guy has the smarts to do it!

I suppose we have to, I mean if he has it and as you said knows how to use it, then It has to be taken into consideration.

Green Lantern has never used half of the true capabilities of his ring... we still use them in a battle scenario because he 'could' use them...

bit of a problem isn't it lol

so now for Battles, Batman has a healing factor that puts Wolverine's to shame?

I say if a character has done it, it should be considered. If a character has never done it, I don't think we should use a 'could do' because then we start stretching what Marvel, DC, or whomever feel is realistic, at this time. The problem with 'could do' is that the character never has done it and we should not assume he or she would. These battles are supposed to reflect some level of accuracy and continuity. I mean, if Fan A has a bigger imagination for Character A than Fan B does, then we start having issues. Or, am I alone in this area of thought?

I Do not think that Batman would use the healing technology for the mere fact that he is too proud to use it. not only that, but he does well enough with his normal technology, and would only use it as a last "life-or-death situation" resort.

when do all this occur? I find it kinda of odd to think that batman (the one true human superhero with no powers at all who hase never needed powers) now has a superpower! it just seems to go against all batman is. I mean for one thing would could easly say that Bruce could create a power suit on the level of ironman. But he doesnt use one. I agree with Dark Hawk I doubt batman would use this unless its to save a life like ......a Robin or such I wonder if he would use it on himself?

I would not count it in yet until he has been shown to use it more than twice or even repeatidly. Until that point it should not be considered as he has not been shown to use in the normal course of his activities. In effect, it has not become part of his common arsenal.

The same goes for any character who develops a new ability or access to new equipment. Until we can see the scope/extent of the power/equipment, we cannot ascertain it's potential and thus make an informed judgement on it.

I'm sticking with my opinion that it's basically just additional technology he has access to, but doesn't have on him. That would mean that he wouldn't have it for normal battles, but if there was one that specified prep time, he could use it because it's in his cave. Still though, I don't think it should be used at all really until he actually uses it so we can see exactly how it works.
