List Rules Vote up your favorite Batsuits you love seeing the Caped Crusader fighting crime in.

Since his start in Detective Comics #27, Batman has been one of the most popular DC Comics characters. Having been a part of the comic book world for over 75 years now, he has had all manner of costumes, some black on black, those with a yellow chest circle bat insignia, and all different size and shaped bats across the chest. Huge horns, little horns, every size of cape. What are the best Batman costumes?  

Every illustrator had their own unique take on the Caped Crusader. The only consistent feature being an exposed chin under that cowl. All of the rest has changed over time. 

This is your chance to vote for the best Batman costumes in all forms of media. Do you prefer the gray and black Frank Miller style or his look in the Christopher Nolan films? Vote up all your favorite Batman costumes!
