    Batman isn't really a superhero, per se. I couldn't really pinpoint my favorite, because they all have unique qualities that interact differently with different situations. I really like Batman, I started watching the DCAU back in 1992 the day Batman: The Animated Series premiered. But, as I said, he really isn't a superhero, but he is pretty awesome, nonetheless.

    Then it begs the question does one need to posses super powers to be a superhero .

    You don't need superpowers to be a superhero. Actually that makes him more of a superhero than anyone else, so batman for me as well.

    Agreed that it's subjective. There are way too many factors to weigh


    - Accomplishments: short term (saving people from muggers, saving people from fires, etc)


    - Accomplishments: long term (paradigm changes, inspiring other people/heroes, etc)


    - Has their mere presence caused problems long-term


    - The effort required


    - Morality


    - Personality - does the hero relate to the public? Is he friendly to them?


    - Have they ever fallen? (figuratively or literally)


    - Did they have to work hard at coming back from a fall?


    - Probably dozens more characteristics



    Everyone will weigh these things differently, some will ignore entire characteristics, and some will have opposing views on whether an increase or decrease in a characteristic makes the hero better or worse.



    Maybe 5 years ago there was a Superman/Batman comic. Batman said something like


    You're an architect Clark. You're building a future. I'm a fireman. I put out fires as best I can, and then move on to the next one



    In the grand scheme of things, Clark might be doing more. But which is more impressive? That's up for individual opinions
