Which Bat symbol do you prefer? Question is more about shape than color.

Batman Begins and The Dark Knight


Tim Burton and Animated Series


Batman Beyond




Joel Schumaker (don't really want to mention)


Batman Arkham Aylum

look up at the banner

The batman beyond, nolan batman and this games symbols are my favorite.
The BTAS symbol is too round to me, batgirl's is too skinny

P.S. I know it is a lot of symbols

Burton's is really classic. It is the most famous because of the movie and the BTAS.

I would have to go with the classic (Yellow and Black) Batman symbol, It just fits, ya know. TAS played a big role in making Batman so popular to this very day. In fact, I would not even know who Batman is or even love him as I do if it wasn't for Batman The Animated Series. Thank you TAS. :D

Batman: Arkham Asylum is actually my new favorite batsymbol. :P

Definitely Burton's/TAS

I would say Arkham Asylum's symbol...and the very first Batman with the all black symbol.

I like all of them, including the Arkham Asylum and MK vs DCU one. Except I don't like Batgirl's. Even the Schumacher one looks good without the Robin symbol over it.

Batman Begins/Arkham Asylum. Actually, if you notice in Batman Begins, his suit had that symbol first, I think Dark Knight and Batman Begins should be seperate, put BB with B:AA.

Arkhams is awesome, burton/tas is classic, beyond is alright just for future batman, batgirls isnt that great on anyone but batgirl, the shumaker one is original and not terrible considering it was for batman AND robin but just dosnt work for me, and the dark nights is great too except that the ridge of the chest kinda distorts it.

Actually, I like the Batman Begins suit symbol because it's the Batarang, but just curved down to fit the chest. The other BB and TDK symbol doesn't look so good to me because what looks good 2-dimensionally doesn't neccessarily look good when applied ontop of a 3-dimensional figure. Also it's like his original bat-symbol in Detective Comics and the first issues of Batman, but just updated and enalrged, plus Burton's symbol reminds me of the campy "The adventures of Batman & Robin" comics that weren't as dark as his original issues.

I forgot one.


Batfan-I thought the symbol was the same. and they have the same batarangs. BUT I remember that in the special features of the dark knight. The people were commenting on how they rushed the making of the costume in Begins. They weren't able to add everything they wanted

The batarang symbol on the dark knight costume is too small to me
I think the arkham/bb is perfect for any costume and the tim burton and BTAS symbol is best for a batsignal.
