Especially when they try to tie it to camp Batman. As if he didnt wear it in the Burton Films.
Or the entirety of the 70's, 80's, and 90's...which weren't camp at all.
The worst when someone complains about Batman having a yellow circle, but its cool for him to have a bulky yellow belt
Not the entirety of the 80's or 90's. It was Frank Miller's groundbreaking works that decade that brought back the black bat look in addition to bringing back batman to relevance.
Batman had a black symbol in some of his depictions in the 90's as well (although the movies probably influenced things a lot there).
I actually always preferred this costume to the original TAS costume when they started the new series in the late 90's.
