I read a story in the news written about this book: Becoming Batman (http://www.becomingbatman.com/):zicon_bat
And I thought people here would find it interesting. Also, I was curious what MA's would batman have to master.

I guess the answer wouldn't be all that different than most people, which means he'd be a very good striker and a very good grappler.

I couldn't find this with the search function, so I figured I'd post it.

You can't become Batman until after your parents are killed....and they have to be rich so you don't have to work and pay bills. This way you can concentrate completly on learning from the mountain ninjas who can teach you the deadly.

For anyone who's interested, it's a fun read. The author does a good job explaining what would be possible and how, and what you'd need to do it, and his science is good. It's not going to change anyone's life, but it's a lot of fun, and a good way to get a look at the science behind a lot of concepts (physical development, body hardening, injury and recovery, etc.) while having fun.

Why become the Batman, if you can just do the pencil magic?

You'll need Morgan Freeman's help first.

Is this like Being John Malkovich?

Olympic level fitness you will also need. Plus an inappropriate relationship with a small child.

The overwhelming drive of perfection focused laser-style on bringing justice to the world, a psychotic egomania trip making you believe you are responsible for everyone's safety, and that you have the best idea of what justice is. The ability to let every little thing not involved in perfected your justice delivery become unimportant and trivial. The ability to maintain a facade lifestyle without letting any of it become real. The greatest deductive mind combined with the hardest determination in the universe.

And an ex-British Special Forces butler with hacking, spying, medicianl, surgical, etiquette, and uhm...butlering skills that loves you more than a father would in order to actually RUN everything while you go flying around in tights.

That should just about cover it for becoming the Ubermensch. The cult following of impressionable youths and dubious relationship with authority gained from the will of the people will come naturally afterwards.
