Reason #1

No Superpowers.

Having no super powers, but still being called one of the best "super heroes" is totally awesome.

Seriously. Who else can claim that? Iron Man, you say? Well guess what. Iron Man is just a suit. Batman is a man. Take Tony Stark out of his suit, and he is no longer Iron Man. He's just some skirt chasing alcoholic with a weak heart that'll kill him if he gets too stressed out. Take off Batman's suit? He's still the goddamn Batman.

Heroes who are lucky enough to have powers are only doing what comes natural to them.

"I mean, is it showing off if somebody's doing the things he's capable of doing? Is a bird showing off when it flies?
- Clark Kent in Superman (1978)

Hell no, Clark. And thats the point. Bruce Wayne didn't become Batman by an accident. He wasn't bitten by a radioactive bat, or born with any special abilities. He is simply a man who through sheer force of will, rose up from tragedy to become the highest possible example of human potential. With or without a costume. How is that not awesome?
