Everyone knows Batman doesn't have real superpowers, but this doesn't stop him from kicking more collective ass than any other comic book hero ever.

Batman has often been ridiculed by other DC characters for his insistence on taking the boy scout motto to extremes. He can also apparently break the laws of physics and store matter within other matter in that nifty belt of his. And if you think he's anal about organization judging by his belt, wait till you see his desk.
