    Agreed. And in colour, too.

    I'd say the definitive Batman costume has to incorporate the darkness he feels inside, the fear he inspires and a practical nature.

    I'd say you need to take a mix of the more modern costumes to achieve this as they move more into a more military and practical nature in recent times. The new 52, both the one worn by Dick Grayson and Bruce Wayne, the two most recent batman film by Nolan, The son of Batman and the Arkham games (although way less bulky) all show this mix.

    Sorry to say but I feel the older more spandex type costumes have been grown out of by necessity and a return to the torment he feels and wants to inflict. I will admit I do not know all of his older ones as well as I am only in my mid twenties and didn't see them through the eyes of the times they were released in.

    Oh and also the new Justice League War movie and the new 52 re release of the justice league comics mix shows him well to.

    Just my thoughts

    Am I the only one who loves the 1939 first appearance Batman Bat-Suit?

    I really like the way it looked in the Bruce Timm Batman: Strange Days shot.

    I like it a lot, but I really couldn't call it definitive. It belongs squarely to that pre-war, first appearance context.

    '89, for me. I prefer the anatomical armour to the geometric type used for BR.

    I do too, but everything else on the BR suit I like more. I like the texture, the cowl, the color, and more than anything else, the Batsymbol. But I do prefer the muscle armor.

    I still think The Panther suit from BF got it the closest, for me.

    Of the Burton suits I like the 09 one the most.

    BTW What'd you guys think of the 2010 fan film "City of Scars" Bat-Suit?

    I'm not a big fan either. I think it's the chest emblem that ruins it for me. I think this might be my favorite fan film Bat-Suit.

    Isn't that from a porno, rather than from a fanfilm?

    Teh puffy.

    Seriously, though, BB's suit is five times better than TDK[R]'s. I just wish they had got the black/grey colour blocking right.

    I agree Reg. Also if Batman wore BB suit he would have avoided the shot from Dent in TDK. :o

    I never understood why people make Batman have boxer briefs when they do their model of TLH Batsuit? In the comic, it doesn't look like that, but in the game and 2 other figures, he has these long boxer briefs that make him look weird.
