We start of course, with the first appearance of the bat in May 1939 in number 27 of Detective comics, what we know today as DC. The character was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, although the latter was never credited as creating the character. From the first Batman story, The Case of the Chemical Union, Finger stated that the plot belongs to the pulp genre of popular magazines, an obvious influence that is implicit in the character’s personality: feeling little remorse because of his murders, committed without involving any firearm. His publishing success led to the creation of his own magazine (Batman) in 1940, while he continued to appear in Detective Comics.

Christopher Nolan was inspired by ‘Batman Year: One’ for his first bat movie. The Killing Jokebatman-the-killing-joke‘The killing joke’ (The Killing Joke).

Without a doubt, the 80s were one of the best stages that the Batman character has known throughout its history. In 1988 DC comics endorsed by the enormous successes harvested, public A death in the family and decides to carry out an experiment where the readers had to decide the fate of Jason Todd (the second Robin) after an encounter with the Joker. In it they had to decide nothing more and nothing less, if Jason Todd lived or on the contrary would die in the hands of the JOKER; luck was not on Todd’s side as 5,343 readers lowered their fingers like a Roman circus, thus deciding his fate. This fact had a great impact on the character of Batman, as well as the death of his parents. In 2005, the character of Jason Todd would return to the DC universe, as a hero who violently fights crime and became the Red Hood (curiously that his executioner had before he became JOKER). A recommendation, do not forget to see the animated feature film ‘Batman: Under the Red Hood’.The comic had the script by Jim Starlin and drawing by Jim Aparo. In the plot Jason discovers that his real mother is alive and begins his search for the Middle East, where he meets with Batman who is on the trail of the Joker. Jason meets her mother, who is involved in business with the Joker, but the Joker eventually betrays her, beating Jason to death and leaving them both locked up with explosives.Batman: Knightfall

Batman: Knightfall

And to finish this review we cannot leave ourselves in the inkwell Batman: knightfall, published in 1993 with a screenplay by Chuck Dixon and Doug Moench, with illustrations by Jim Aparo, Norm Breyfogle, Graham Nolan and Jim Balent. In ‘The Dark Knight: The Legend Rises’ not only can we see Bane but Christopher Nolan nods to this comic including the famous scene of Bane breaking the bat. In ‘Batman: Knightfall’ (The Fall of the Bat), Batman ends up paralyzed after his confrontation with Bane. A new character, Azrael, replaces our hero during his recovery to fight crime, but this attracted by the power of Batman ends up becoming a threat. Once recovered, Bruce Wayne must face Azrael and return to occupy the place that belongs to him. This is a particular ranking. So I invite you to comment telling us which are your favorites.
