Is there any example of Batman explicitly following the Scientific Method? At the very least, on the level of "here's my (falsifiable) hypothesis, here's the test I'll run to confirm/deny it, here's me running the experiment, here's the result".
If not, he's not a scientist - no matter what DC artists/writers claim!
I don't care what the media is - e.g. comics/cartoons/movies - as long as it's something considered canon.
This is a yes/no question, therefore I'm only looking for one example, or for a canon/authoritative explanation why none of the examples exist (e.g. "Lucius Fox/Alfred is meant to be a scientist figure").
I seem to vaguely remember both Peter Parker and Reed Richards shown actually doing science experiments, so the idea doesn't seem all THAT implausible for a comic where the hero is officially labeled a genius and a scientist.
