Me parece un personaje tan interesante que cuando es bien encarado, es dificil quedarse con una versión o arco argumental preferido, por mi parte, y gracias a la sagrada trinidad que conforman Paul Dini, Mark Hammil y Kevin Conroy, creo que la versión definitiva de Batman es la de la serie animada de los 90's, y luego la serie de videojuegos Arkham, pero no puedo dejar de lado los comics The Killing Joke, Long Halloween, KnightFall o The Dark Knight Returns, sin olvidar largometrajes animados como Mask of the Phantom o Red Hood, o las versiones cinematográficas de Tim Burton y Chris Nolan, sin olvidar la bizarra y fantástica versión que tuvo en The Flashpoint Paradox. Hasta el Batiwest se merece un lugar en el olimpo batmaniano!
