In the world of comic book heroes, where death and revival go hand-in-hand, it’s no wonder that someone like Batman has had his fair share of dying, resurrections, and alternative versions. And when you add all the other media, like the movies, animation and games, you get even more Bat-men (?). During his entire 75 years, Bats has been seen wearing the wildest costumes imaginable, fighting countless street scum, super villains and god-level threats with his buddies from the Justice League.
People love Batman for one reason or another, and recently with all the Nolan movies getting the status of “iconic”, it became clear to me that the Dark Knight of Gotham is not going anywhere anytime soon, which is great. And I’m personally equally pumped for the upcoming Justice League movie, as well as his current shenanigans in the comics. Of course, if you think about it, the more things change, the more they stay the same, but things did change at some point, giving us these 10 badass iterations of Batman (in no particular order).
