Batman is the crime fighting alter-ego of millionaire Bruce Wayne. Wayne inherited a fortune as a boy after his parents were killed by robbers; when Wayne grew up he dedicated himself to fighting crime and chose the guise of a bat in order to strike fear into the hearts of criminals. Unlike Superman and Spider-Man, Batman is a human with no supernatural powers.

Batman lives in Gotham City and operates out of his secret crime laboratory, the Bat Cave. He battles exotic super villains including The Joker, Two-Face, Catwoman and the Penguin, and is often aided by a sidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder. Batman has appeared in many types of media over the years and with various levels of seriousness.

Batman's fighting game debut in Justice League was dull - like the entire game, so we don't need to talk about that. Batman's big return in the crossover nobody asked for, MK Vs. DC, wasn't terrible (but again, not great). Thankfully... Batman's appearance in Injustice finally gave the design the justice it long-deserved in the fighting game genre. It sure took long enough. lol.

I liked Batman when I was a kid in the 80's... but I guess I grew up. In my teen/young adult years in the 90's, I became much more inspired and intrigued by Marvel characters (particularly X-Men). After all those live-action 90's Batman movies, Batman became more of a "joke" than anything else. I always found it funny how he couldn't turn his neck very far in those 90's movies (without turning the rest of his upper body with it. lol). Moving on, I did come to appreciate some of the darker / "adult" artwork in some of the later comics & artbooks... and I actually loved The Dark Knight (mostly thanks to Heath Ledger). I especially appreciated the part when Christian Bale said he wanted a new suit so he could "turn his head." ^o^ Fan service. At the end of the day, Batman is a timelessly enjoyable superhero and has a vibrant history, personality, and story behind him (when done right). Although... I have to admit I've always enjoyed the villains of the series more. We all know Batman is a true superhero icon... but... you'll never win any "originality" points being a huge fan of Batman. There's more to life than Gotham city, y'know.
