    Sorry but Batman's intellect and detective skills far surpass any human being and is on a super-powered level. The guy with no "super powers" per se went toe to toe with Superman and won. Albeit with an atomic powered suit and knuckles made of kryptonite but still, he DOES deserve to be a Super Friend. I would like to see a fight between Batman and Capt. America.

    That is my geek rant of the day.

    Batman does not have powers that people may typically refer to as 'supernatural.' Batman (Bruce Wayne) was born a normal human male and has not undergone any special transformation to become the superhero Batman. Bruce Wayne is a wealthy male who has virtually unlimited financial resources. Because of this, he is able to acquire (and have built when neccessary) the latest technology. Bruce uses the latest technology as Batman to fight crime. In the comic books and tv show Batman has a high IQ, photographic memory, and things like that, but nothing that seperates him and puts him on the level of having a 'super' power. I much prefer the rendition that Christopher Nolan has in the most recent Batman movies of Batman, where there is no mention of a high IQ or photographic memory capability. In the comic books Bruce went to school and majored in criminology and has a deep understanding of the underbelly of society, forensic evidence.... However, in the most recent movies Batman is just a regular guy - a product of circumstance. A much more believable character in my opinion, and this is what elevates Batman to the level of Superhero.
