Batman is not a superhero and never will be, he lacks the powers!!!
Trollacracy

Con

A. Superheroes don't need "super powers"

1. The Marriam-Webster dictionary is one of the most used, and trusted, dictionaries in America. The definition of superhero is as follows,

: a fictional hero having extraordinary or superhuman powers;also : an exceptionally skillful or successful person. {http://www.merriam-webster.com...}

2. It's true Batman doesn't have extraordinary or superhuman powers, but he is indeed exceptionally skillful and successful.

Bruce Wayne (Batman) has been calculated to be worth $6.9 billion, making him very successful.
{http://www.centives.net...}

Bruce Wayne was also trained in the League of Shadows becoming an incredibly skilled fighter, and he has numerous degrees in science and math. Batman is argueably the "perfect human."

Conclusion:
I hope that i have proved to you how batman is indeed a superhero, good luck in response.

Webster dictionary might say that a superhero is a person with skills, but with out his 6.9 billion he couldn't pay for all his toys, that keep him from geting killed in all his fights.

Althoght Batman might have skills, he is just a man with a lot of money.

If Jacky Chan had 6.9 billion dollars and devoted his life to fighting crime he would be better then Batman.

Con

1. You say that the only reason Batman doesn't get killed in his fights is because of the "toys" he buys with his money, this is false. In Batman's final fight with Bane he didn't use any said "toys" he just used his fists, and he just about killed Bane.

When Bruce Wayne (Batman) was in the prisons, he got in a ton of fights with prisoners, some of them up to 7 prisoners versus Bruce Wayne, and he still beat them up.

2. Then you contradicted yourself when you said

"Although Batman might have skills, he is just a man with a lot of money"

You are agreeing with me by saying he has skills, but then you say he is just an ordinary man.

3. You also aren't giving any facts, your just giving your biased opinion.

4. You say if Jackie Chan was as rich as Batman he would be better than him. This is false. Becuase Batman has WAY more muscle mass, and way more intelligence than Jackie Chan. So i disagree with you.

Good luck on your first debate. I advise defining what a real superhero is, and then work out counter points for all the times Batman has gained superpowers (ones in addition to being immune to the ill effects of being knocked out a few thousand times).

Reasons for voting decision: Sources tied as pro countered the point about money. Argument and conduct to con, due to pro dropping out... I do however believe in Jackie Chan.
