Batman is a very special superhero—he's the only one that doesn’t have official superpowers and hasn’t been into some kind of radioactive incident. His strength comes mainly from the gadgets and weapons he carries with him. On the other hand, some of his enemies, like Poison Ivy, do have superpowers… When it comes to Batman Costumes, Poison Ivy is a fan favourite.
