10 Comic Book Characters Who Broke Batman

It's one thing to break Batman in two, but what happens when a villain gets inside his head?

DC Comics

Batman is one of the celebrated superheroes despite possessing no superpowers. It's not just because of his gadgets or fighting skills but his willpower. Batman's inner strength is so astounding, he is one of the only people who can resist the Scarecrow's Fear Gas and Poison Ivy's pheromone control. On top of that, he is highly resistant to psychic attacks.

Batman's phenomenal self-discipline is due to training mentally for years. This practice allows him to stay calm and logical in the direst situations while other superheroes would panic and fall apart.

No matter how many times he gets knocked down, he get back on his feet, insisting that he will never give up. However, there are a few times where Batman seemed truly beaten.

At the end of the day, Batman is only human, meaning that he has a breaking point just like everybody else. All you have to do is strike him where it hurts. His family. His friends. His principles. A very select few have managed to break Batman by saying the wrong thing, hurting his loved ones, or by beating the crap out of him.

He may be a hero, a member of the Justice League, and Gotham's protector, but Batman is far from invincible.
