Being a billionaire, Bruce Wayne could have lived a lavish life. But he CHOSE to be a hero. He CHOSE to fight for justice. He CHOSE to avenge his parents. And he doesn’t even have any superpowers for crying out loud. Batman is a self-sacrificing human being who gave up everything he has to restore justice in Gotham city.
Life lessons from Batman:
#1 Transform your failure into your strengths
Witnessing the murder of his parents, Bruce became emotionally traumatized. But instead of cowering in fear and relying on his father’s wealth, he became Batman and began a war on crime. His dedication and passion to being Batman is unshakable.
#2 You don’t need superpowers to become a hero
Bruce Wayne does not possess any kind of superpowers at all. He has molded himself into Batman through his sheer determination and hard work. To say he is an expert martial artist would be an understatement. He relies solely on his skills and intellect to fight crime.
#3 Never lower your standards
Driven by guilt and vengeance, Batman stops at nothing when it comes to fighting crime. But he never stoops down to their level. He has NEVER killed anyone despite how twisted that criminal is (read Joker). He prevents himself from becoming one of the murderers by maintaining his morality & a clear conscience.
“If you kill a killer the number of killers in the world remains the same.”
2. Iron Man (Tony Stark)
It’s not about how much we lost, it’s about how much we have left. We’re the Avengers. We gotta finish this. – Iron Man
Who is Iron Man?
After being kidnapped, billionaire, scientist, playboy and genius Tony Stark suffered a serious chest injury. He escaped his captors by inventing a mechanized suit that not only allowed him to destroy the abductors base but it also saved his life. Eventually Tony developed an advanced suit of armor with technological devices and weapons through his own organization Stark Industries. And thus he became Iron Man, the armored Avenger, played by the truly inspiring Robert Downey Jr. in the MCU movies. The high-flying hero not only stops the bad guys but also helps the people across the world.
Life lessons from Iron Man:
#1 Learn what you don’t know
Even though he is a globally renowned scientist and a genius, Tony is keen on learning what he doesn’t know. Always focused on upgrading his Iron Man suit, Tony is always open to experimentation and doing his homework to be the best at what he does. Failure has taught him more than success and trial & error has saved his life.
#2 Admit your mistakes
Tony Stark is an arrogant, stubborn and hard headed person who has frequently been called an egomaniac. He is far from perfect and has made a lot of bad decisions. And all of this has landed him in a lot of trouble. However, he knows when he has screwed up and he doesn’t shy away from admitting his mistakes. He also makes sure to right his wrongs and move forward with more strength.
#3 Stand for a cause
Tony Stark could have easily enjoyed his life as a genius and a billionaire, but he chose to stand up for something that is much bigger than him. When he realized that his creations could either destroy or save mankind, he chose to become Iron Man. In the latest MCU movie Avengers: Endgame, Iron Man willingly sacrificed his life for what he believed in. When you live for something that’s bigger than yourself, you will find a higher purpose in life that will inspire you to live with a renewed sense of motivation.
3. Superman (Clark Kent/Kal-El)
“You’re much stronger than you think you are, trust me.” – Superman
Who is Superman?
Superman a.k.a Kal-El is the last son of the planet Krypton. Sent to Earth from his dying planet Krypton, Kal-El was found and raised by a farmer couple and was named Clark Kent. His parents inspired him to stand up for truth and justice after discovering his superpowers. And thus he became Superman, named by his co-worker and love interest Lois Lane.
