Sure, Superman may be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, Spider-Man can stick to any surface imaginable, and Wolverine has those indestructible claws, but there is no cooler gimmick in the comic book industry than Batman's collection of gadgets. Since the character's creation in 1939, the Caped Crusader has introduced the world to some of the sharpest tech innovations in all of pop-culture, and he has even managed to evolve with the technological advancements in the real world over the decades.
It seems like for every situation Batman finds himself in, he has a gadget ready to deal with it. And that is exactly why this character has endured for over 70 years. He wasn't born with super powers, and he wasn't bitten by a radioactive bat; instead he uses his tech resources to help him win his war on crime.
