Batman Has No Powers

When I was really young (probably in Lethbridge at the time, so probably 5 or 6) I was already fascinated by superheroes but I was still tryin to get a handle on them.  At first I thought all superheroes had powers. So when another kid showed me a batman doll I insisted that Batman had to have a power of some sort even as the kid kept (correctly of course) correcting me.  Finally the kid gave up trying to to correct me and humoured me that Batman did sometimes had a way of jumping that might seem like flying afterward. That satisfied me at the time. And of course I later figured out that quite a few superheroes didn’t really have powers.
