Why is Batman called crazy for fighting crime in a costume but other superheroes like Spider-Man aren't?

Why is Batman called crazy for fighting crime in a costume but other superheroes like Spider-Man aren't? Every discussion of Batman on or off Cinemaphile will have people say “oh he’s INSANE, he fights crime dressed like a BAT” but with other characters people just take that stuff for granted. I’ve never heard somebody say “Daredevil is insane. He fights dressed as a devil.” “Wolverine is insane, he named himself after an animal!” Only Batman gets this shit.

    Probably cause he doesn't have bat like abilities, he could simply have a ninja theme.

      So Batman in the iterations where he doesn’t have a Robin, like the Nolan movies, is sane?

    Spiderman is actually really overpowered for a street level superhero, with his powerset he really can dunk on bank robbers and gang members & such with no great risk.

    Most unpowered capes just seem to go with some sort of comic book logic that says wearing a costume makes you able to defeat criminals because

    Batman doesn't have any superpowers that made it easy for him to super like daredevil or petey have, he just suddenly chose to do this ridiculously impossible thing because of a traumatising incident in his youth.
    He also acts really crazy day to day. He chose to become Batman because a Bat flew through his window while he was talking to his dead dad in his head out loud, and he took this as a sign his dead dad is commanding him to become a bat-person.
    This isn't a one-off incident either, Bruce frequently does shit like talk to "the batman" inside his head and junk, Miller's Batman takes this to the point he has DID.
    Many stories like Serious House and Ego have Bruce astral project and start vividly hallucinating in times of stress. Especially Serious House, where he reacts viscerally to anything that reminds him of his childhood, even Rorschach tests. If your guy can't look at a black blob of ink without screaming in fear and cutting himself with a glass shard to stop the memories because it looks like his Mom's vegana, he's probably a little crazy.

      Come on, Anon. Let's not pretend that "I'm blind, but not really" is such a boon to crime fighting that it inherently makes Matt more fit for super hero. It's a help, sure. But 95% of what makes Matt Murdock into Daredevil isn't his radar sense and other senses heightened. It's the same thing that makes Batman able to fight crime. Some gadgetry, years of grueling training, and the motivation of vengeance against criminality due to parental murder born from greed.

        Anon, Daredevil is superhuman and trained by explicitly supernatural superninjas in many continuities. The radar and heightened senses give him an absurd advantage over regular humans to the degree of combat precognition, and he is just stronger, faster and more resilient then them and this is explicitly acknowledged in-story. When he dodges bullets and ricochets them back into their owners, swings himself from rooftops using a stick and a wire or survives a grenade to the chest it's not being "peak human" or trained really well it's a genuine superhuman ability.

    Grant Morrison explained well why that whole idea is moronic. It seems to have become even more prevalent since that awful new Batman movie where he was portrayed as some whiny emo peeping Tom recluse.

        Gotham before Batman isn't explored that much, but it's usually depicted as a corrupt city completely in the thralls of organized crime. Batman was mostly able to put an end to the mafia and clean up the police, so he was very successful.

          The mafia was put an end to and taken over by Two-Face in Long Halloween and the sharp rise of lunatics, and violent-crime has skyrocketed in Gotham to unprecedented levels ever since.

    Same reason people do why he doesnt kill the joker threads, pure moronation, is about b***hing about batman being more popular than their favorite character, is not about actual arguments.

    Literally every batman story has a theme about mental illness or some shit. You don't see stories about daredevil talking about his psyche about how hes gonna go crazy if he kills a guy

      No, not literally that would be moronic to suggest.

    Because the writers DC hires have spent the last 30 years writing him as crazy.
    Before that, people either called Batman campy or took him seriously as a sane crime fighter.

      To be fair, Batman made the right call to hit Jason in that scene. He was correct that the Joker is insane, he is correct that the Joker needs help, he is correct that Jason does not have the right to execute the Joker, and most importantly he made the right (Ethical/Moral/Heroic) choice to hit Jason to save the Joker's life. Because no matter what the Joker does, Batman does not have the right to cut him down unless he absolutely has to (Joker has a gun on a child) that is in the hands of the public and court who keep finding him insane and think his punishment should be in a mental asylum. Also no killing is a principle to strive for for Batman, but if he h as to do it to save others it's fine.

      Batman is a hero.
