The one from 1993 looks like the space station Deep Space Nine. Just saying.

Um, my favorite one would have to be....1998, the Batman Chronicles, and 2003, Batman Gothic Knights.

Gotham Knights and Nolan.

I must say though that graphic annoys me because it includes the other Nolan films and Arkham games as if the symbol itself is different.

Most of these aren't symbols, but logos.

So, in terms of the oval symbol, I'll have:

Whoever made the chart put the wrong symbol there. That's definitely not the symbol on the Begins suit.

The chart is largely filled with mistakes, considering it's got far more logos than symbols:

The first row has two symbols with a picture of Batman's face. Batman has never worn a symbol with his own face on it. It was the logo of a book.

The Arkham games didn't have symbols with "Batman" written inside them. That's their franchise logo.

The Batman & Robin suit didn't have a symbol that displayed both a bat and a robin. That was the film logo.

The same is applicable to The Dark Knight Rises, the symbol on the suit wasn't all cracked.

So on, and so forth....

I know that, and that doesn't change the fact that the symbol posted under 'Batman Begins' has absolutely nothing to do with the movie logo/suit symbol used in Batman Begins.

1995 (Batman Forever may be mediocre, but that is a great symbol)
1992 (nostalgia)
1989 (likewise)
2009 (Arkham Asylum)
2005 (BB)
2008 (TDK)

My picks.
