Artist Rafa Toro has given Batman’s rogues gallery a quirky update, re-imagining the fearsome villains as maniacally delightful toons. Every iteration of every foe is rendered in this series of strutting GIFs, providing possibly the only context in which the Joel Schumacher-era villains make any real sense.
In addition to being fun to look at, the GIF set shows just how extensive Batman’s two film franchises have been. Whatever angle the next franchise attempts, they’ll be hard-pressed to find suitable adversaries for the Dark Knight that he hasn’t already faced.
Enjoy the strutting villains below, and be reminded of just how cool Jack Nicholson’s Joker was.
