Batman does not have a superpower, therefore he is not a superhero

As my opponent has not laid out any framework for rounds and this is a three round debate, I will use this round for my case, the second round for my rebuttal to my opponents case and third round for closing arguments.

Before i get into my case, i will lay out a few definitions.
Definition 1: Superhero; according to merriamwebster dictionary, a superhero is a ficitional hero having extraordinary or superhuman powers: also; an exceptionally skillful or successful person.

2. Superhuman; According to merriramwebster dictionary and dictionary.reference.com, superhuman is anything that is above or beyond what is human.

Now on to my case.

1. Batman fits the criteria for a superhero.
a. Batman is an idea, making him/it superhuman. As stated in the recent movies, batman is in fact an idea. If you look at the quote "You can kill a man but you can never kill an idea"-Medgar Evans, you can see that since batman is an idea, batman is immortal which is a superhuman attribute (as it exceeds human achievement) making batman a superhero.
