There’s no way Bruce Wayne could keep his secret identity a secret...NSA the National Security Agency would have found him out to be Batman a long time ago. You can’t build a secret fortress like that without them knowing about something fishy too.
I’m tired of Bullshit in storytelling.
Anyone else tired of Hollywood underestimating their viewers intelligence and IQ?
It's called "voluntary suspension of disbelief".
Superman wouldn't work either.
Most people return to reality after the movie ends - but fundies don't
after the service.
It has been implied in the DC Comics stories that govt black ops
types like Amanda Waller do know who the Batman is, or that with
the resources at their disposal, they could find out, but choose
not to blow his cover, because he's an asset.
You can suggest a vigilante take care of a problem, and the
govt has plausible deniability.
Bruce is rich. Bribes may have been taken.
In various versions of the continuity, the Batman is the best human
friend of a near-omnipotent alien resident of Earth. That's a
handy guy to have around if and when the alien needs to be brought
under control, or influenced.
JLAers have had access, in the comics at least, to Amazonian, Kryptonian,
Thanagarian, Rannian and, to an extent, Oan tech. There have been members
from New Genesis, specifically Scott (Mr Miracle) Free, who are fully
conversant with NGtech and that of Apokolips. If the Batman wanted
to hide something, in that continuity, he could hide it.
This is more a rec.arts.comics.dc.universe question than an alt.atheism
one, except that, in some versions, Bruce is a non-believer.
[Hey, his parents were shot before his eyes when he was, what, 8?
Would you believe in a "just ghod" if your life was like that?]
