    I am WAAAY out of touch -- Is Batman really ninja, or trained as a ninja?

    I saw "Batman Begins" trailer on the season finale of Smallville last night. 80% of the exclusive WB11 trailer was about Bruce's training with what looked like an elite ninja group. Did Batman really do ninja training or was this just an add-on for the movie?

    Whatever it is I think "Batman Begins" is going to be a major hit although I'm not sure how it's going to fare with the original "Batman" (which was the best of them all) or Spider Man 2, which to me is the best superhero comic turned movie to date. XMen 2 of course is up there but Spidey 2 just did everything right.

    I'd argue that anyone who could answer this question is probably out of touch.

    Maybe that's just me though. :teeth:

    I asked this of my roommate, who is a comic mastermind, and he replied with the following:

    1. Bruce trained heavily in the martial arts, though it was unclear if he was really being trained as a ninja, per se.

    2. Bruce was trained heavily in sleight of hand and escape artistry.

    So, I guess if you combine the two, that does make him a ninja of sorts – though not an “official†ninja.

    No, he wasn't. I'm fairly certain that he wasn't in the old comics, I haven't read any new Batman comics :p

    I didn't bother to watch it, the Smallville to be continued thing pissed me off.
    I dunno why, it's a good way to keep people watching their show, but I wanted things explained :)

    I think he's two ninjas taped together to make one giant ninja.

    I believe he is trained in a bit of everything, I recall him wrestling someone once.

    don't forget chemistry too....think he even trained as an fbi agent....didn't they call him the greatest detective? well until the male menopause thing kicked in and he just started beating the answers outta the bad guys

    He's gotta be pretty ninja-esque to appear and disappear the way he does.
