Celebrate Batman’s 75th Anniversary With These 75 Batmans

Turns out, Gotham has more than one Caped Crusader in its midst.

It’s been 75 years since Gotham got the hero it deserved: a caped crusader to battle the evil forces that threatened to consume the city, a man whose masked exploits have been thrilling readers for generation upon generation.

Knocking out his enemies with a resounding ZONK!; cavorting through Tim Burton’s kooky cinematic landscapes; sporting an ever-evolving series of Batsuits both with and without nipples: Batman has officially been around for three-quarters of a century. And in celebration of his cultural legacy, we’ve put together this Batstravaganza — one Batman for every one of the Dark Knight’s 75 years on the planet.

Batman fan Sam Van Valkenburgh put his gloves back on after running out to grab something from his Batmobile in the parking Thursday afternoon. Fans started to line up early for the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, at the Regal Continental Stadium
