The Dark Knight himself. Along the same lines as Robin, Batman's outfit is designed to suggest the padding and articulation that would be present in lightweight body armor or tactical gear. I gotta say, there is something incredibly rewarding and humbling about having the opportunity to design a legendary character like Batman for a new cartoon. I just tried to do a faithful and reverent take that would work within the context of the world Brandon and Greg were trying to create.

I'd like to see you try and tackle the Batman-like character, Kyd Wykkyd, from the old Teen Titans show, dude.

My wife, children, and I love your work. From Young Justice to War. Thanks for your steady hand, creative work, and dedication to reppin the source material brilliantly. I worked for Klasky Csupo at one point, and I gained a real respect for Character Designers, Story Board Artists, and Animators in general. Even my work in Comics has taught me that what may seem simple, takes a knowledge of anatomy etc, just to stylize, and streamline. Great Job.

Awesome... Bruce Greenwood is still the most underrated Batman out there.

love the suit, the look but he should've been voiced by Kevin Conroy in the series the that would have been sweet. just my opinion but Kevin Conroy is the best voice actor for the dark knight

I love everything about the lightweight body armor look. Wouldn't work (or be necessary) for every character, but I like seeing it on characters for whom it would. Great Job. Still wish there was a way to get rid of those spandex trunks without it looking weird or just going with completely black. Personal gripes aside I still love the design. Good work.

Am i the only one who would love an animated Batman series in this style? On the other hand Batman a bit overdone. What about Nightwing? MAKE IT HAPPEN CARTOON NETWORK!

Ive always liked Batman in the DC Universe, because he's got like an all bad cop, bad cop routine, every time he goes out on a mission.

Your Young Justice designs are great! I don't know how much more of an effort it was for the animators to draw the characters with such detail, but it was worth it. I'm still sad to see the series go.

FINALLY was able to see Justice League: Doom tonight after too many times missing it when it was almost in my grasp. Love this design of Batman paired with Kevin Conroy's voice and Dwayne McDuffie's writing.

Curse my being broke...My only regret is I was never able to meet 'im in person. I'dve loved to have seen your style with his writing even more. Really wish he could have been around longer...
