Batman Day

Batman swoops down on an unsuspecting Gotham for the first time in Issue #27 of Detective Comics, 1939. No circus sidekicks, no movie Bat-nipples, just a rich man with a pair of tights, a can of whoop-ass and a dream.

Things have changed a bit since then, but whether you like your Caped Crusader light or dark, there’s plenty of Batman to choose from. Take a peek at the evolution of Batman in the above video, and see just how far he’s come since the 1930s.
