The Dark Knight In The Bright Day

I think it’s safe to assume that anyone roughly my age considers Batman: The Animated Series to be the one, true, canonical Batman mythos. Kevin Conroy portrayed Batman/Bruce Wayne better than any other actor who was ever given the role. He was also the first actor to use different voices for Batman and Bruce Wayne. The series introduced the concept of Harvey Dent having an alternate personality BEFORE the accident that created Two Face, and it introduced Harley Quinn. And while we’re on the subject of definitive portrayals of classic DC characters, Mark Hamil’s Joker had a greater impact on me in terms of geek culture than Mark Hamil’s Luke Skywalker did. It was just flawless. It was also the first time I was exposed to the idea that Batman was entirely crazy, and that he was sort of ruining the lives of the kids he took under his care. Furthermore, it was the launchpad for the entire DC animated universe for the next 15 years. With all of that in mind…

COMMENTERS:¬†What versions of classic, constantly reincarnated geek culture icons do you consider to be the definitive ones? Or just talk about how great Batman: TAS was. That’s fine too.
