Why Women Love Batman

I turned my blog over to men back in February. I asked three different guys who they liked more... Batman, Superman or Spider-Man. Not one of them picked Batman. As a matter of fact, they made fun of him. The posts were filled with comments from women professing their love for the Caped Crusader. I'm Team Batman myself. Duh! I don't claim to know every little comic book detail, but I'm definitely no super hero dummy. Here are just a few of the reasons why women prefer Batman.

1. The Costume
He made it in the image of a bat to frighten criminals. His costume is winning because... Bats are indeed scary. Also, he's handy with a needle and thread.

There's a bat emblem on the chest. This draws our eyes to his well-defined pecs.

In early depictions, the costume is blue and grey. In recent years, the costume is black and form-fitting. Since it's 2011, we'll assume the costume is black. Black is hot. Not to mention the way it hugs his toned physique and highlights his derrière.

He wears a cape. A cape isn't altogether sexy, but it is dramatic. And the ladies love drama! Capes also make swishy noises, and swishy noises are cool.

A black cowl mask covers most of his face. Tall, dark and mysterious? You can all form a line behind me. I was here first.

He also wears a utility belt. There's nothing sexier than a man with tools at the ready in case something needs to be fixed. Like my vagina a flat tire...

2. He's rich.

3. He lives in a mansion.

4. He has a secret hiding place called The Batcave.
The Batcave consists of a series of subterranean caves beneath the mansion. As if the mansion weren't enough, there's a hidden, underground lair to run around in. Sure, caves are cold and damp, but it's all for a good cause, right? For the sake of humanity, I'd hide out in the Batcave anytime Batman asked me too.

5. He has a car called the Batmobile.
You don't even need to know anything about it with a name like this. Simply put, it's bad ass.

6-9. He also owns a Batwing, Batboat, Bat-Sub, and Batcycle.
Batman travels in style.

10. Unlike most superheroes, Batman doesn't have any super powers.
After witnessing the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on crime. He trained himself both mentally and physically to become Batman. He uses his mind, detective skills, science, technology, wealth, physical strength, intimidation, and martial arts skills to fight crime. This is why Batman wins with the ladies every time. With sheer will and determination, this regular guy morphed himself into a bad ass.

11. Batman is more than just a pretty face.
He's also an industrialist and a philanthropist.

12. Batman isn't afraid to share the limelight with others.
There's his crime-fighting partner Robin, his butler Alfred Pennyworth, the police commissioner Jim Gordon, and Batgirl.

13. Even though he doesn't possess a single super power, Batman can fly!
How? Well, it's that fancy, super spankin' hot suit and cape he made with his bare hands.

14. And, last but not least, hotter guys have played Batman.

Why do you love Batman?

If you don't, lie and pretend you do.

Anyway, though, Bale is what makes my Batman meter go off the scale.
And also Bale.
Then there's also the fact that Bale plays him.
And his Batcave is cool.
And. Did I mention Christian Bale?

The costume definitely has something to do with it...and I do like the fact that he doesn't have any real powers, but rather uses his superior intellect to solve crimes...and his butt looks tight in that costume!


Meghan said...

I am not sure if I really love Batman, or Bruce Wayne...hmm.

Nikosmommy said...

Could NOT agree with this more! Batman wins every-time, hands Down! He is:
-No "super-powers" but who are we kidding, no one really has those!?

You pretty much nailed this one. :)

Shelley said...

I thoroughly enjoyed this post! I never thought I liked him more than Spiderman or Superman but now...I'm going to have to rethink some things!

Christina said...

I love this! "Like my vagina..." Hahaha! Batman has always been my favorite. I haven't see Green Lantern yet though...

♥ Braja said...

Still laughing at the "na na na na na na me!" pic :))

Batman's just hotter. Period.

Christine said...

Um... yes, Christian Bale please!

Date Girl said...

lol, my vagina. I've always been a HUGE Batman fan. I like that he is dark and brooding. It doesn't hurt that his alter ego is a millionaire playboy. He has definitely been played by way hotter guys than other Superhero movies. Spidey, I'm looking at you awkward pants.
Christian freaking make me drool Bale yesssssssss.
PS We should go see the next Batman movie together. Just sayin. ;-)

Karen Peterson said...

O, Batman! How do I love thee! Let me count the ways!

I pretty much agree with everything you said here, especially the part about him not having to resort to super powers that he got by accident. He turned HIMSELF into a superhero. And that's hot.
