Here’s another list I created for Topless Robot. Any hardcore comic fan who says he doesn’t like Batman is a liar. Every extreme comic fan is required to at least like Batman a little, as well as two or three D level Avengers and Justice League members that they have singled out to make them feel more special for being one of that character’s few fans (for the record, my D List loves are Wonder Man, Plastic Man and She Hulk. And Wonder Man, I promise that one day, I will make you as awesome and funny as I know you are.).
A lot of people talk about flexible Batman is as a character. And this list certainly has a lot of examples of radically different Batman interpretations. I think the thing that is always there is the righteous fury that drives Batman. It’s not enough that Batman is smarter and stronger and richer than anyone else. It’s that, as far as Batman is concerned, his morals are absolutely unimpeachable (your personal mileage may vary).
