  3. All due respect to Superman but Batman for me will go down in comic book history as the most famous and greatest superhero of all time. No character has had more success or made a huge impact in games, movies, comic books, TV shows and animation like he has and whenever a conversation about costumed heroes is brought up, Batman is usually one the first name that will always come up. Long live the dark knight!!!

  4. Love this ! Best version of the dark knight. If the studio people saw this you'd think they could make a good movie from it lol.

  5. This was moving and powerful I haven't seen Batman the animated series since the late 90s and I haven't seen Batman beyond since 2004. This was simply put…awesome
