Comics: Jim Aparo’s rendition of Batman’s togs from the 70’s and 80’s. It’s the classic blue and gray look, it’s elegant and he just looks cool under Mr. Aparo’s stewardship.
Movies: While Christian Bale is my favorite live action Batman, my absolute favorite movie-based Batman suit is Val Kilmer’s regular Batsuit from Batman Forever.
Dubbed the Panther Suit during production because of how sleek it was, this is the quintessential live action Batman suit for me. Black rubber never looked so good, before or after Batman Forever.
TV: A tie between the Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures iterations.
I love me some Filmation and Hanna-Barbera style Batsuits, but the first two looks from the DCAU are homeruns.
BTAS perfectly exemplifies the blue and gray look, while TNBA does the same for the black and gray style. I’m also partial to the TNBA character design as Batman was a larger and stronger tour de force of skull cracking, jaw-adjustment justice on that show.
Toys: Clearly the below is Batman’s best look in plastic, bar none. Gooooo released in 2004 by Mattel banana yellow Battle Sled Batman!
