When you're an average, every day, non-super-powered human being, you need all the help you can get to fight crime. So what is a billionaire with his mind set on vengeance to do? Invent all best ass-kickery to take out the bad guys.

We've decided to rank the best Bat-Gadgets of all time found in Batman comics, movies, animated shows, and video games. Be sure to vote up your favorites!
