Which Batman design is your favorite?

#1 Posted by PlaystationFanboy (35 posts) - - Show Bio

The Golden Age with the pointy ears?

The Silver Age with the blue cape and cowl and yellow Bat symbol?

The Modern Age that looks similar to the Golden Age, but the ears are less pointy?

The Post-Crisis version that had the yellow symbol?

Or any others?

I noticed that, the Brotherhood of the Bat wasn't on this list, but i'm going with red son superman. Just because of the hat. Otherwise i do like the Yellow Bat symbol on his chest.

70's Batman ala Neal Adams. The blue and gray tights with the yellow emblem will always be my Batman.

Yeah, because I enjoy Iron Man, it also automatically means that I hate Batman. You might want to try pulling out that tampon, seeing as you're so butt hurt. You know? :D

No love for Long Halloween Batman? Wish I could find a better image, but this illustrates (ha) my point. One of the things I truly love about comics is that totally impractical things can be made to look awesome and beautiful in a way. The ridiculously long flowy cape and almost comically long ears from Long Halloween are among my favorite elements of the overall Batman design. The long ears help make him look more... demonic, I guess. Lends credence to the whole "terrify your enemy" idea. Short stubby ears just don't look right on ol' Bats to me, personally. May be due to my first exposure being the Tim Burton Batman and not seeing Adam West Batman until later. And I've always had a thing for huge capes ever since I watched the (ultimately terrible but visually interesting) Spawn movie. One of the reasons I do not like most Robin designs is the cape is knee length and just looks silly.

I will say, the Batman, Inc. design is pretty cool too, I dig the evolving look of the Nolan movies, Arkham Asylum/City look comes ridiculously close to my ideal Batman and I'll always have a soft spot for the Animated Series look, but Long Halloween remains my personal fave.

You might want to refrain from doing that again so that you can keep on posting. You know?

You are allowed to jest in a less offensive manner. Because, clearly, the joke was not particularly funny to most, considering you got flagged by several users and not just FadeToBlackBolt. And I personally found it of poor taste, too.
 
No, Vance has been on CV much longer than I have.

Anything black and grey before all else, and more without the yellow circle than with, though the Batman Inc. made it look cool.

Otherwise for alts I love the first Azbats suit (1), the 1 Million design (2), and the Thrillkiller Batman (3). I, Joker (4) of course but I don't know if anyone considers

that inclusive?
