best Batman other than Bruce?

In your own opinion, who do you think is the definitive Batman Besides Bruce? For me, it would be Terry Mcginnis. Mostly because he was never a Robin, and became Batman in almost the same way Bruce did.

Dick then Terry.

Personally I always liked Dick better as Nightwing doing his own thing

I love Nightwing but if Bruce wasn’t Batman then I couldn’t pick anyone else besides Dick to pick up the cowl.
