There is nothing like unprepared batman

This post is for batman's fans.

I have been a fan of batman long before Nolan's triology came and everyone was swept in the tide of awesomeness.

In India, comic culture is not as prominent as oversees and the only easily accessible comics are locals like Chacha Chaudhary, Champak etc.

So my initial introduction to the batman was through cartoon network.

Later on, after internet was accessible, I got access to the batman comics and animated movies.

At the same time, came along the Dark Knight trilogy and everything and everyone went berserk. I was among those people who was caught in the massive tide of awesomeness.
There is no denying the fact that the trilogy is awesome. Hands down.
However due to limitation of time and context, the movies could cover only a tiny portion of Batman's world.
At the heart of batman's universe is the fact that batman is always prepared.
See below comic cover for reference:

Comic: JLA tower of babel 
In Tower of Babel (or the corresponding animated movie Doom)  Batman has a contingency plan for every member of the Justice League, in case any one of them goes rogue.
Batman can take on the entire Justice League and still win. Being the only human member of the elite corps, that's quite an addition to your CV. 

With Batman, it's all about training, dedication, discipline, and always being prepared for the worst, no matter how improbable it seems.

After all, Batman is just a human. Bullets can hurt him. Bombs can destroy him. Knives can cut him. He can definitely be killed.

You ask me who can kill Batman?

Well. Superman can kill an unprepared Batman. Wonder woman can kill an unprepared Batman. Flash can kill an unprepared Batman. Iron Man can kill an unprepared Batman. In fact, almost every superhero ever created can kill an unprepared Batman.

Unfortunate for them, there's no such thing as an unprepared Batman..
