When it comes to Batman, the one thing that you can always count on is change.  Different sidekicks, different Batmobiles, different ear-lengths…  Heck, even his chest symbol is in an endless state of flux, from the chonky Frank Miller version to the weird spindly one with the upswept wings to whatever that weird bladey Christian Bale version is all about, leading to today’s pectoral query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will always love the 60s-style yellow circle version, even if the 1989 version looks like teeth to me, asking: Which chest emblem is the best Bat-Symbol in your eyes?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I have to agree with Malone… The 1992-1995 Animated series was one of my favorites and I loved the image in the intro with Batman standing on the rooftop with lightning behind him. The gold ellipse made the black bat symbol really stand out. I always thought it wasn’t “stealthy” as a black symbol on the lighter gray suit, but definitely think it’s my favorite.
