Which is your favourite Batman?

#1 Edited by Jack_B_Nimble (1 posts) - - Show Bio

The title is pretty self-explanatory; which is your favourite Batman? I'm talking Adam West versus Christian Bale, not Bruce Wayne versus any other person who was ever "The Batman". Personally, the Batman I like the best is the animated series Batman because he's the one who kicked off my love of Batman. But what about you?

As far as live action goes Christian Bale captures better than any one else.

Now comics right now? DC or Batman

Hmm.... I'd have to say the Batman from Young Justice because that show really displays Batman's prowess as a fighter (even though he only fought in like two episodes). It also showed how smart and caring he was.

Other than that, I'd have to go with Batman from Under The Red Hood & Dark Knight Returns.

I also loved Batman: The Animated Series, he was great there, and in Justice League/Unlimited animated series too.

Animated Series all the way. Kevin Conroy will always be my Batman.

So very true. Top 3 for me are Kevin Conroy, Young Justice Batman, and then Bale.

TAS Batman is by far my favorite followed by Bale's Batman.

Conroy, Keaton, then young justice Batman (whoever the voice actor is)

Truth be told: Arkham Aslylum/City Batman is my favorite. He's a tank who went through Hell, used awesome detective skills, had bada$$ gadgetry, and near-precognition with martial arts ( :P ). He was smart, wry and wity, but also serious and intimidating. And all the while, he was in mortal danger and not unstoppable-unstoppable. Thats what my Batman is. Film: Christian Bale. Animated: Justice League/Unlimited.

@MrShway88: Bruce Greenwood I believe. He did it in Under the Red Hood, too

Adam West.

Morrisons batman

Kevin Conroy Batman overall, numero uno!

Then, Tim Sale Batman (for comics).

Live action would be Michael Keaton for me.

for me its kevin conroy bruce greenwood as a close second live action its keaton kilmer bale west.

Kevin Conroy by far. I always hear his voice when I read Batman.

As for live action I would definitely go with Keaton. While I love the Nolan Batman movies, Bale never really felt like Batman to me.

Batman the Animated Series's Batman is the best!

#22 Posted by havoc1201 (495 posts) - - Show Bio

Bale, UTRH

#23 Posted by PaperDemon (608 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicace3: To be honest, Batman from the games looks sorta weird to me. The new armor looks awesome though. But he still is cool nonetheless.
