Who wouldn’t want to be the Batman of their dreams? Everyone would, if we’re being honest. But how does one go about making that dream a reality? With hard work and dedication, for one. You’ve probably seen the actor, Robert Pattinson, around the big screen. With roles in “The Twilight Saga” and “Eclipse”, it’s safe to say that he has made a name for himself. And now, he’s gracing us with his presence in the comics, with “The Batman” no less. In the following, we’ll discuss how you can replicate that magic in your own life.
Read The Complete Works
The first step to becoming the Batman of your dreams is obvious. You have to read as much as you can about him. Fortunately, with the incredible rise of the internet, it’s easier than ever to research and learn all there is to know about your favorite comic book character. With countless resources online, there’s no reason to not be completely well-versed on the subject.
Even if you possess all the knowledge in the world, it won’t do you any good if you don’t have the courage to act on it. Robert Pattinson has stated in interviews that he gets nervous before acting gigs because he’s afraid of screwing up. It’s easy for a superstar like him to say something like that, but it’s a completely different story when you’re actually in the scene. The fact is, we’re all afraid of screwing up. And that’s completely normal. But you have to learn to overcome that fear. You’re a superhero (or a Batman, in this case) because you’re strong enough to fight your fears and work through problems. So don’t be afraid to show the world your true colors.
Take Care Of Your Health
It’s no secret that superheroes are very athletic individuals, constantly in peak physical condition. However, that doesn’t mean you have to follow their lead and become an Olympian. Being in good health is essential to being the Batman of your dreams. Like most other celebrities, Robert Pattinson isn’t exactly hiding his addiction to expensive habits and glamorous lifestyle choices. And that’s something you shouldn’t be afraid of. It’s not unhealthy to be admired and loved by millions of people. But your health is what’s important. You only get one body, and you’re risking your life every time you go on screen or hit the stage. So be smart about what you put in it and take care of yourself. Regular exercise and an organic diet (when possible) will keep your body in good condition, making you appear younger and fitter than you really are.
Know Your Limits
In order to be a good superhero (or Batman), you have to know when to stop. You can’t save everyone, even if you really want to. There are just a few select individuals whose lives you can alter for the better. And you definitely can’t control other people’s opinions of you. Being arrogant and trying to save everyone will seriously damage your own reputation as a superhero (or Batman). You have to be realistic about what you can and cannot achieve. The Joker is a great example of a comic book villain who, for most of the story, believes that he can save the world. Unfortunately, this also leads him to trick Batman into thinking that he has the support of the people around him. This creates a dangerous dynamic when the villain starts gaining power and believing that he’s always right. Ultimately, this leads to Batman defeating him in a fight because he doesn’t want to become like him. The lesson here is: even though you want to help everyone, you can’t. Sometimes, you have to let people down easy. It’s not that you’re a bad person; it’s just that you’re a limited person.
Don’t Forget The Small Things
Speaking of being like the Joker, it’s important to remember that even he was considered a hero among his peers. He was a brilliant scientist who just so happened to dress in clown attire. It was never really his costume that was the problem, but rather, his maniacal laugh that got him into trouble with the law. He constantly tormented Bruce Wayne/Batman because he knew that the billionaire had a dark and troubled past which he used to punish himself. He knew that Wayne would come back and hunt him down because he was unable to let go of his grief and guilt. This is a prime example of how little a superhero’s appearance really has to do with it. The costume isn’t important, it’s what’s inside that counts. You have to make sure that you’re always kind and caring. It’s easy to portray someone who is anti-social and has a bad temper, but it takes a skilled actor to show compassion and understand the needs of others. If you want to be considered a hero, it’s not about how you look, it’s about what you can do. You have to start by being honest and straightforward with those around you. It’s not always easy, but you’ll be much happier in the long run if you can show the world how caring and generous you are. Just keep in mind that you’re a superhero, so don’t forget about your looks. Make sure that your costume is comfortable and fits you well. And if you do happen to get cold in the winter, make sure that your cape is long enough to cover your whole body.
Follow The Rules
There are many comic book characters who don’t seem to follow the rules. They skirt around the edges of the law, often getting themselves in trouble without really trying. This is something that you shouldn’t be doing. You are The Batman, it’s important that you live up to that title and act like it. Even though you can be smart and sneaky sometimes, you must always obey the rules. There are lots of ways that we’re smart and sneaky, but still abide by the rules. For example, Bruce Wayne/Batman is a brilliant intellect who uses his genius to outsmart villains and protect those who can’t protect themselves. However, he still wears a mask because that’s what the law deems necessary. You can also relate to this as it’s something you struggle with. It’s not that you’re ashamed of being smart or clever, it’s that you want to follow the rules so that you don’t get punished. In a nutshell, this is how you act like the Batman.
What makes the Batman so special is that he’s been around for a very long time. He was first introduced to us in comic books back in the 30s, and has been a part of popular culture ever since. So it would be remiss of us not to study the history of the Dark Knight. Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane with a brief recap of his most notable exploits.
The very first appearance of Batman was in a comic book published by DC Comics in 1939. The character was created by school teachers who were inspired by the work of Jack London and also decided to put their own spin on the genre. With an urban legend-like origin story, the Dark Knight was a noir detective who rode the wave of a pandora’s box of comic book characters, including The Shadow, The Wizard, and The Penguin, who was inspired by the success of Gene Kelly’s “Shane” movie which was released in 1939.
During the height of the comic book boom in the 1960s, Batman became one of the most popular characters, appearing in almost every major title. And it wasn’t just because of the character’s dark and brooding image. The stories in many cases were considered by many to be some of the best in the history of comics. Whether it was the campy 60s TV show or the current day Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan, it’s safe to say that Robert Pattinson’s portrayal of the character hasn’t aged a day.
These days, Batman rarely makes headlines anymore. But when he does, it’s usually about some type of legal trouble. Since many of the early stories were set in an urban environment rife with crime and corruption, it’s little wonder that Batman has been portrayed as a crusader for justice ever since. That crusade has mostly been aimed at the rich and powerful who could easily hire the services of a brilliant criminal lawyer should they get arrested.
But it’s not all bad. Since the early 2000s, Batman has actually been depicted as a symbol for peace and reconciliation, especially since many of his incarnations have been designed with an Asian influence. He’s appeared in countless films and television shows over the years, consistently ranked among the most popular superheroes. With his unique blend of brains and brawn, as well as his popularity among both young and old audiences, there’s no question that Robert Pattinson will continue to be associated with Batman for quite some time.
