Bat Family: Gotham Crusaders by phil-cho Bat Family: Gotham Crusaders by phil-cho
Enjoy!! Here are Gotham's crusaders from left to right: Huntress (Helena Bertinelli), Batwing (David Zamvimbi), Blackbat (Cassandra Cain), Red Robin (Tim Drake), Batwoman (Kate Kane), Robin (Damian Wayne), Batman (Bruce Wayne), Nightwing (Dick Grayson), Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Red Hood (Jason Todd), Spoiler (Stephanie Brown), Batman Beyond (Terry McGinnis), and Thaddeus Crane (Alfred Pennyworth)

Of coarse there are more crusaders like Gordon, Azrael, Blue Beetle, and the likes, but I consider these guys to be in the family of Bats and Birds.

I love this piece; not gonna deny it. I LOVE it. It's a great show of all of the great characters that have come out of the Batman comics so far, as well as showing us as fans how far it has all come. I like the fact you included all the recent changes to the DC universe, as well as new characters to add to the Bat-Clan (i.e Bat-Wing) I love the use of colors as well as the light and dark textures being used, I like the fact that you gave real depth and character to each of them, makes them seem more real. overall, i would say that this is a great piece of art :)

Thaddeus Crane? I fully admit to not following the Bat comics after New52 effed it all up, so am I missing something here? Is this an alter ego/codename for Alfred?

I know that Bruce, Dick, and Tim all have false identities that come up if someone runs their fingerprints; I read that somewhere before the Crisis/New52 lines came out. I believe this was done after the Bruce Wayne: Fugitive storyline, after his name was cleared, because his prints would obviously have been on file after he was booked for murder. Not to mention that when Bruce originally joined the FBI at the age of 20, he would have been printed back then. I believe it was Barbara who changed the names connected to the Family's prints inthe local system as well as from AFIS. Current continuity says they have no prints in the system at all, though Tim's have been shown as coming up under the name "Alvin Draper" and Jason is listed as "john Doe."

After all this time, and with only this group shot in angled profile, do I see the connection between Huntress' mask and that of The Bat...
ImperialWrath Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2017
Now THIS is awesome! The entire Bat family are such a diverse and skilled group of people, and the inclusion of so many people is one of the things that makes Batman one of my favorite superheroes of all time.

Harper Row didn't become "Bluebird" until 2014. Unless I was fortune teller, I would not have known about her existence. Forgive me for not being a time traveller.

No Azrael!?!
Geminice Featured By Owner Edited May 7, 2016
Everybody seems to forget Azrael. Perhaps its because he's rarely worked with the rest of the Bat family.

I can't help but think someone is missing.

There's a batgirl I've seen with random stichings (goth style?) and no mouth hole.  Who was she? does anyone know?  I think she ran into batman in the comics, like she worked while he was 'away'...
phil-cho Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
She's in there - just wearing a different costume. There's bound to be someone missing though as this is now a little out dated (2012). And I'm sure there are others in the family I don't even know about that predate my existence - Batman's been around way longer than I have.
Chaos-The-Chosen-One Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2015
So which one wore that batgirl outfit? I'm curios.
phil-cho Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Black Bat (Cassandra Cain) - the Asian girl with the Batgirl outfit, but Huntress looking mask, and ninja forearm wraps. Hope that description makes sense haha.
