  1. How about posting classic Batman?

    "Green Kryptonite ring"...honestly!

  2. Which classic Batman? This is Batman as he appears in the Batman Sourcebook. I added and updated a few gadgets, and put in a couple of nods to the modern/movie Batman, but really, I made very few changes at all. As for the ring, in the Post Crisis era of DC Comics, Superman gives Batman the kryptonite ring created by Lex Luthor, a fact that comes up with surprising frequency.

    1. Right after the Tower of Babel series. To make sure that no matter what the JLA would always be in check.

  3. I revised this March 2 to expand and clarify the character. The write up was always meant to be the modern and the classic Bats.
