However, if we were to pick just one issue, it would be the strikingly nostalgic final story, "Batman '66" 30's "Main Title" by Lee Allred and Mike Allred.
The story is nominally about Batman's villains all celebrating a crime convention, where they show off all their latest death traps and the like. When they refused to invite the Riddler, he tipped Batman and Robin off about the gathering and the heroes went to go break it up. However, when we said "nominally," we meant that it is really a set-up by the Allreds just so that they could find a way to re-create the main title credits of the "Batman" TV series, while having it actually make sense in the story!
How amazingly bizarre is that? The whole issue is packed to the brim with wonderfully obscure references. It's a nostalgia overload, and it is incredible! In this storyline, which had tie-ins with all of the books in the expanded Batman universe but mainly took place in "Batman" by Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion , the Joker had returned to Gotham City.
The Joker then captured them all and seemingly removed their own faces; but in the end, it was all part of a sick plot by the Joker, who had grown angry at Batman for what he saw as becoming overly reliant on other people. Batman was now trapped in the past and forced to find a way to fight his way back to his own present. However, since this is Batman we're talking about here, Darkseid knew very well that Batman would eventually make his way back.
Meanwhile, Batman's superhero friends were traveling through time trying to find him, as well. Each issue in the series had a different artist and saw Batman visiting a different point in history, inevitably getting caught up in fighting for justice in that time period Naturally, he found a way to outwit Darkseid and complete his return. Drawn by Frazer Irving, it was a twisty, mind-bending story told out of sequence that concluded this phase of Grant Morrison's Batman mega-storyline.
The main villain was Doctor Hurt, of the Black Glove, who was using Professor Pyg to drug the masses of Gotham City to turn the town into the capital of crime. Hurt then publicly proclaimed himself to be Thomas Wayne. In the end, the whole thing turned out to be a ruse by Dick and Damian that tied directly in with the end of "The Return of Bruce Wayne. The story worked as an origin for Batman, but one that managed to avoid simply duplicating the work of Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli in their classic "Year One.
The main villain of the arc which is split into three smaller stories was the Riddler, who effectively took over the entire city of Gotham, knocking everything back to square zero. Bruce has to not only save his city, but find out what kind of man it will take to become the Batman that Gotham City needs. Capullo and Miki are given the opportunity to astonish readers with some astonishingly over-the-top sequences in Snyder's innovative story, which is destined to be remembered fondly as one of Batman's greatest.
Scott Snyder's first extended Batman work took place in this long intertwined arc through "Detective Comics" These stories came out during the point in time when Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson were both acting as Batman, with Dick concentrating on Gotham City while Bruce operated Batman Incorporated, a world-wide operation of Bat-themed agents. Snyder tells the story of both Dick Grayson and Commissioner James Gordon dealing with problems from their past.
For his part, Dick deals with the daughter of the gangster who killed his parents. Their reunion is bittersweet when Dick realizes that she is not quite as pure as she claims to be. Gordon, meanwhile, is dealing with the return of his son into his life. James Gordon Jr.

The Grayson stories were drawn by Jock while the Gordon stories were drawn by Francesco Francavilla originally the Gordon stories were back-ups, but then became part of the narrative on their own when "Detective Comics" ceased to have back-up stories mid-way through the story. Snyder does a wonderful job showing how easy it is for people to see what they want to see in the people that they love.
When Batman returned from the "dead" in "The Return of Bruce Wayne," he foresaw a powerful enemy that he had to pull out all of the stops to defeat. That enemy was known as Leviathan, and it inspired Batman to form the international group called Batman Incorporated, so he could take on his new global enemy. Along the way, Batman also got involved with the spy organization, Spyral, which controlled the original Batwoman, Kathy Kane, who Morrison brought back in this series.
Yanick Paquette was the initial artist on the series, but Chris Burnham became the main artist eventually. As it turned out, the head of Leviathan was none other than Talia Al Ghul. She would stop at nothing to take down Bruce Wayne, even if it meant sacrificing their son.
This was an epic tale that also managed to deliver intimate one-shots on a routine basis, like a great story featuring Stephanie Brown before the New 52 erased her time as Batgirl and the aforementioned Batwoman arc.
As it turned out, there was a mysterious organization working in Gotham City for hundreds of years. They had secretly been pre-selecting members to join them as they helped direct the future of the city. Batman threw quite a bit of a wrench into their plans to control the city and they finally decided that it was time for them to reveal themselves to him.
When Batman proved to be made out of sterner stuff than they expected, they unleashed their full army of Talons, their long-living assassins. This led to an epic crossover event where all of the various Bat-titles had to help prevent a wave of assassinations from taking place by the Talons. In the end, it turned out that Lincoln March, a candidate for Mayor of Gotham and a member of the Owls decided to double-cross the Court after they intended to have him killed as part of their plot against Bruce Wayne.
In a final battle, he revealed a dramatic secret connection he believed he had with Bruce. This opening arc, with fantastically dynamic artwork by Capullo, set the stage for Scott Snyder's historic run on "Batman" in style.

Although both the comics and TV show were successful for a time, the camp approach eventually wore thin and the show was canceled in In the aftermath, the Batman comics themselves lost popularity once again. As Julius Schwartz noted, "When the television show was a success, I was asked to be campy, and of course when the show faded, so did the comic books.
I went to the DC library and read some of the early stories. I tried to get a sense of what Kane and Finger were after.
Few stories were true collaborations between O'Neil, Adams, Schwartz, and inker Dick Giordano , and in actuality these men were mixed and matched with various other creators during the s; nevertheless the influence of their work was "tremendous". The comic book, which tells the story of a year-old Batman coming out of retirement in a possible future, reinvigorated interest in the character. The Dark Knight Returns was a financial success and has since become one of the medium's most noted touchstones.
O'Neil operated under the assumption that he was hired to revamp the character and as a result tried to instill a different tone in the books than had gone before. Writer Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland continued this dark trend with 's page one-shot Batman: The Killing Joke , in which the Joker, attempting to drive Commissioner Gordon insane, cripples Gordon's daughter Barbara , and then kidnaps and tortures the commissioner, physically and psychologically.
The Batman comics garnered major attention in when DC Comics created a number for readers to call to vote on whether Jason Todd , the second Robin, lived or died. Voters decided in favor of Jason's death by a narrow margin of 28 votes see Batman: A Death in the Family. Writers Doug Moench , Chuck Dixon , and Alan Grant worked on the Batman titles during "Knightfall", and would also contribute to other Batman crossovers throughout the s.
Along with longtime collaborator Tim Sale, they wrote two miniseries The Long Halloween and Dark Victory that pit an early in his career version of Batman against his entire rogues gallery including Two-Face , whose origin was re-envisioned by Loeb while dealing with various mysteries involving serial killers Holiday and the Hangman. The 12—issue storyline has Batman and Catwoman teaming up against Batman's entire rogues gallery, including an apparently resurrected Jason Todd , while seeking to find the identity of the mysterious supervillain Hush.
The series became 1 on the Diamond Comic Distributors sales chart for the first time since Batman Oct. Written by Frank Miller and drawn by Jim Lee, the series was a commercial success for DC Comics,   although it was widely panned by critics for its writing and strong depictions of violence.
Most notably of these elements were the science fiction themed storylines of the s Batman comics, which Morrison revised as hallucinations Batman suffered under the influence of various mind-bending gases and extensive sensory deprivation training.
Morrison's run climaxed with "Batman R.
Although he reclaimed the mantle of Batman, he also allowed Grayson to continue being Batman as well. Bruce decided to take his crime-fighting cause globally, which is the central focus of Batman Incorporated.

Dick Grayson returns to the mantle of Nightwing and appears in his own ongoing series. While many characters have their histories significantly altered to attract new readers, Batman's history remains mostly intact.
Batman Incorporated was relaunched in — to complete the "Leviathan" storyline. With the beginning of the New 52, Scott Snyder was the writer of the Batman title. His first major story arc was " Night of the Owls ", where Batman confronts the Court of Owls , a secret society that has controlled Gotham for centuries. The second story arc was " Death of the Family ", where the Joker returns to Gotham and simultaneously attacks each member of the Batman family.
It followed Batman 0, published in June , which explored the character's early years. The final storyline before the " Convergence " storyline was " Endgame ", depicting the supposed final battle between Batman and the Joker when he unleashes the deadly Endgame virus onto Gotham City.
The storyline ends with Batman and the Joker's supposed deaths. Starting with Batman vol. However, Bruce Wayne is soon revealed to be alive, albeit now suffering almost total amnesia of his life as Batman and only remembering his life as Bruce Wayne through what he has learned from Alfred.

Bloom heavily injures Jim Gordon and takes control of Gotham City and threatens to destroy the city by energizing a particle reactor to create a "strange star" to swallow the city. Bruce Wayne discovers the truth that he was Batman and after talking to a stranger who smiles a lot it is heavily implied that this is the amnesic Joker he forces Alfred to implant his memories as Batman, but at the cost of his memories as the reborn Bruce Wayne.
He returns and helps Jim Gordon defeat Mr. Bloom and shut down the reactor. Gordon gets his job back as the commissioner, and the government Batman project is shut down.

As a child, Bruce witnessed the murder of his parents, Dr. Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne , which ultimately led him to craft the Batman persona and seek justice against criminals.
He resides on the outskirts of Gotham City in his personal residence, Wayne Manor. Wayne averts suspicion by acting the part of a superficial playboy idly living off his family's fortune and the profits of Wayne Enterprises , his inherited conglomerate.
Although Bruce Wayne leads an active romantic life, his vigilante activities as Batman account for most of his time. Bruce Waynes principles include the desire to prevent future harm and a vow not to kill.
Bruce Wayne believes that our actions define us, we fail for a reason and anything is possible. Interpretations vary depending on the writer, the story, and the timing. He notes an equally stark contrast in their real identities. Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent belong to different social classes: "Bruce has a butler, Clark has a boss.
James Musler's book Unleashing the Superhero in Us All explores the extent to which Bruce Wayne's vast personal wealth is important in his life story, and the crucial role it plays in his efforts as Batman. There's just a sense about him: 'they trust him Criminals are a superstitious cowardly lot.
So my disguise must be able to strike terror into their hearts. I must be a creature of the night, black, terrible Dennis O'Neil noted that character consistency was not a major concern during early editorial regimes: " Julie Schwartz did a Batman in Batman and Detective and Murray Boltinoff did a Batman in the Brave and the Bold and apart from the costume they bore very little resemblance to each other.
Julie and Murray did not want to coordinate their efforts, nor were they asked to do so. Continuity was not important in those days. Bob Kane and Bill Finger discussed Batman's background and decided that "there's nothing more traumatic than having your parents murdered before your eyes".
Although manifested differently by being re-told by different artists, it is nevertheless that the details and the prime components of Batman's origin have never varied at all in the comic books, the "reiteration of the basic origin events holds together otherwise divergent expressions".
Frank Miller views the character as "a dionysian figure, a force for anarchy that imposes an individual order". Batman, shortly a year after his debut and the introduction of Robin, was changed in after DC editor Whitney Ellsworth felt the character would be tainted by his lethal methods and DC established their own ethical code, subsequently he was retconned as having a stringent moral code.
In an interview with IGN , Morrison detailed that having Dick Grayson as Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin represented a "reverse" of the normal dynamic between Batman and Robin, with, "a more light-hearted and spontaneous Batman and a scowling, badass Robin". Morrison explained his intentions for the new characterization of Batman: "Dick Grayson is kind of this consummate superhero. The guy has been Batman's partner since he was a kid, he's led the Teen Titans , and he's trained with everybody in the DC Universe.
So he's a very different kind of Batman. He's a lot easier; He's a lot looser and more relaxed. Jean Paul Valley, also known as Azrael , assumed the cowl after the events of the Knightfall saga. Additionally, members of the group Batman, Incorporated , Bruce Wayne's experiment at franchising his brand of vigilantism, have at times stood in as the official Batman in cities around the world.
Supporting characters Batman's interactions with both villains and cohorts have, over time, developed a strong supporting cast of characters. Many of them mirror aspects of the Batman's character and development, often having tragic origin stories that lead them to a life of crime. Batman's "most implacable foe" is the Joker , a homicidal maniac with a clown-like appearance. The Joker is considered by critics to be his perfect adversary, since he is the antithesis of Batman in personality and appearance; the Joker has a maniacal demeanor with a colorful appearance, while Batman has a serious and resolute demeanor with a dark appearance.

As a "personification of the irrational", the Joker represents "everything Batman [opposes]". Many of Batman's adversaries are often psychiatric patients at Arkham Asylum.
He serves as Bruce Wayne's loyal father figure and is one of the few persons to know his secret identity. Alfred raised Bruce after his parents' death and knows him on a very personal level.
