Batman has been a part of pop culture for 70 years. Yes, that is a long time, and there have been a huge number of costume variations and iterations of the superhero and his non-costume wearing alter ego, Bruce Wayne. He’s been drawn by a mind boggling number of artists and been portrayed on screen several times. Everyone else has evolved over the years, too. Allies and villains alike have all been drawn and filmed differently, and many have had their origin stories written and retconned more than once.
This giant infographic takes a look at the history of Batman and a few of the major cast members; it also includes a timeline of important events in the Bat-verse. I’d love to see something like this for every superhero in a giant coffee table book format.
