That would be silly and sort of ruin the "Everyman" appeal of Bruce Wayne, along the lines of how I feel about the Extremis with Tony Stark. It turned him from simply a brilliant "every man" to someone with a degree of "super"-human ability.
"Brilliant everyman" is kind of an oxymoron, don't you think?
