okay, I should probably have made this, before saying goodbye and all, but one last thing before, I leave for vacation. the 23rd of July, has been declared Batman day by DC Comics! And, I got an idea! how, to celebrate it! So, here I give you, my top ten batman stories! All from comics, to tv shows, to video games, to the live action movies! lets begin!
number 10. The Laughing Bat.
an episode from the TV Series the batman. joker is tired of losing, so he decides to become the batman, and replace batman as the dark knight! And, as Batman tries to stop Batjoker, joker injects batman with joker venom, giving batman, a sense of humor, so batman can become the new joker! Its a funny episode, with an interesting role reversal, with a joker who tries to fight crime, and a batman with a sense of humor!
9. The Long Halloween.
This, is one of my favorites! Cause, it combines, the detective aspects of batman, with the super hero aspects of batman! A new mysterious villain, known only as holiday is in Gotham, and is killing of mobsters, on holidays! and each killing is, themed after the holiday too! Like, after the murder has happened, an object representing the holiday the murder happens, is left behind. and, this story also got another major subplot! The fall of Harvey Dent, and the origin of Two Face! Its a great mystery comic, and it will keep you wanting to read more, so you can find out, just who is Holiday?
8. batman begins!
This movie, is the origin of batman! And, the beginning of the dark knight trilogy! Witness, how batman came to be, and how he became the dark knight of Gotham, and as he faces of against, he's first enemies, the scarecrow, and Ras Al Ghul!
7. the dark victory!
Fun fact. this is actually Christopher Nolan's favorite batman story! the sequel to the long halloween! A new killer has come to gotham, called the hangman killer! This murderer, kills their victims by hanging them, and attaching a paper with the picture of an unfinished hangman game on them! and, a subplot for this story, is the origin of robin! So, since batman lost he's ally, harvey Dent, he gets a new one in robin! Another thrilling mystery, and lots of villains! Like the long halloween, it combines the detective aspect of Batman with the super hero aspect of batman!
6. the killing joke!
what more can I say? its the killing joke! Explore, the possible origin of the joker, and how the joker tries to drive gordon to madness, proving that there is no difference between the joker, and the rest!
5. Arkham origins!
The prequel to batman arkham asylum the video game! Black Mask, has put a bounty on batman, and eight assassins are in gotham, trying to collect it! Witness batman, in he's early years, as he fights the assassins, and meets some of he's villains for the first time, like killer croc, Bane, and he's arch-enemy, the Joker!
4. Arkham City.
old gotham, has been turned into a super prison! And, Hugo Strange, is behind this! Why? What is he's plan? Batman, must dive into arkham city, to find out! But, while he is in there, he may not just lose he's life, but also he's secret identy, to the world! And, it also got one of the most shocking endings ever!
Bane! A super smart, super strong villain has come to gotham! To free all the villains, and break the bat! this story, is awesome cause it proves, Batman is no male mary sue, and proves, that there are enemies, out there, even Batman can't handle, on he's own.
2. the death of the family.
the joker has returned to Gotham, and he plans to kill all of Batman's allies, so he can make Batman, the hero he believes he should be! this story shows how creepy the joker can be, and it also makes you question the relationships, batman has with the characters, and it shows so much of Joker's madness!
And finally, my number one favorite batman story....
