Ostensibly, no, Bruace Wayne/Batman was not conceived by his creator to be superhumn.|
That being said, there is some evidence in the Batman comics that he took on "superhuman powers" at times:
From Detective Comics # 275 (1960).
In this tale, Batman and Robin fought a villain called the Zebra-Man, who had magnetic powers thanks to a machine (just like a REAL zebra). But then Batman accidentally activated the same device and became the "Zebra Batman."
Along with a bizarre new appearance (amazing how these kinda of accidents also affect your clothing), Batman could now manipulate magnetic forces.
"THE BIZARRE BATMAN GENIE"
From Detective Comics #322 (1963). The title says it all.
Batman, Robin and Bat-Girl were doing what they do best, chasing criminals and what not. But then a strange turn of events and exposure to magical dust led the Dark Knight to being transformed into a mystical genie, turban and all. Worse yet, the lamp he was bonded to was in the hands of a group of hoods, and so Batman, that great champion of justice, was forced to perform magic spells in service to criminals.
