Since May 1939, Batman has captured the attention and imagination of millions, arguably becoming the most popular superhero in the world. Batman's popularity is arguably rivaled only by Wolverine, and let's face it, ol' Logan doesn't have one of the most anticipated games or movies hitting the market between now and July.
Part of what makes Batman so endearing is that, unlike so many other superheroes, he lacks superpowers. He's a man who's trained and pushed himself past the limits of what the human body is capable of. As a metaphor, Batman exists as an example of what mankind can achieve through hard work and determination.

Batman has had so many different looks in the past 72 years, that his design is really open to interpretation. A few things remain vital: cape, cowl, utility belt, and bat symbol. These are important aspects of Batman's iconography, so rejection of any or all of these aspects will need to have sound justification.
