This page originally existed as "Batman", but I felt that that should redirect straight to Batman (Bruce Wayne) for Average Joe Internet User's sake. So I made this. Profzoom 21:42, 29 July 2006 (Eastern Daylight Time)


Is a Post-Crisis Batman page yet to be made as the reason for his absence in this disambiguation? --Destron Commander 04:43, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't think so. There is a Post-Crisis Superman page because of the continuity shifts regarding to the character. Batman hasn't changed much since Infinite Crisis, thus, no specific post-Crisis Batman page is needed. The Clever Guy (TalkContribsE-Mail) 10:10, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, after looking at other pages, I got it. But thanks for the explanation! --Destron Commander 06:52, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Batman vs Batman (disambig)?[]

Any reason it's not in the Batman slot yet? :o --Nathan Elliott (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 03:37, 19 May 2008 (UTC)


Why is this page locked? I would love to try and cut down on the number of multiversal incarnations listed, but it won't let me edit. -- Gnostic 04:11, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Battle for the Cowl[]

OK. Right now I understand that Dick Grayson is Batman. Do we need to update this, or note the real guy is "dead" and that Dick is filling in for him?

Roygbiv666 18:03, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
On this topic... I think that we should move Bruce Wayne back as the main version when Return of Bruce Wayne #6 comes out, but obviously keep Dick Grayson on the page.

Missing four...[]

There are four other video games based in the comic book continuity (So to speak...).

Batman (1986), Batman: The Caped Crusader (1988), Batman: Return/Revenge of the Joker (1991), and Batman: Dark Tomorrow (2003).

Citizen Wayne[]

Here's an interesting and annoying problem. apparently Brian Michael Bendis, in his only work ever written for DC to my knowledge, decided to write a short story Elseworlds with the same name as another Elseworlds. so we have two contradictory stories titled Citizen Wayne appearing in Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Annual #4 and Batman Chronicles #21. I can only assume that this was some sort of personal "screw you" pointed directly at us. Does anybody have any suggestions on how we can resolve this discrepancy in our pagenames?

- Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 15:39, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
"(Citizen Wayne II)"? It looks ugly, but I can't think of anything better. -- Tupka217 16:44, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
Establish a disambiguation page for the story title, perhaps? --Lucien61 (talk) 07:07, March 18, 2014 (UTC)
We called the second one (Citizen Wayne Chronicles) --Tupka217 10:43, March 18, 2014 (UTC)

Batman Beyond in Bethlehem[]

Batman continuity right now doesn't really make sense. They've been setting up a definitive future for the character it seems... Batman #666 establishes the dystopic future where Damian Wayne becomes Batman after the death of his father, and Batman #700 further establishes him going on to become mentor to Terry McGinnis. This future also appears in Superman/Batman #75. On the other hand, Batman Beyond Vol 3, also supposed to take place in the definitive future of mainstream continuity, shows Terry working underneath the guidance of Bruce Wayne. Doesn't add up. So... either we need to work out Batman Beyond continuity better, or we need to establish this future by itself... i.e. Damian Wayne (Batman in Bethlehem) etc. Maybe we need to do both. Thoughts?

Wingman II[]

Shouldn't Wingman II be linked to Jason Todd (Prime Earth) instead of Jason Todd (New Earth)? Considering the events listed are ones that took place in Batman Incorporated Vol 2, as listed on the page. GZilla311 (talk) 01:37, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

Yep. Kyletheobald (talk) 01:46, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

Mr. Unknown (Prime Earth)[]

As of the June 2014 solicits for Batman Eternal (specifically issue #9), we have Batman Japan named as "Mr. Unknown", like his predecessor. Given this and the fact that he appears to be a replacement for the Super Young Team given his association with Crazy Shy Lolita Canary, should we rename his entry here and give him his own separate page?

Also, do we have confirmation this is the same as the second Mister Unknown in the first place?

GZilla311 (talk) 23:57, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Howsabout we wait for the comic to come out? --Tupka217 01:14, March 18, 2014 (UTC)
The comic is now out. Can we make a new page for the new Mister Unknown, then? There's so many new elements that it is more or less a completely different person.GZilla311 (talk) 13:49, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
Spell it out again, because I lost track of what the problem was. How many mister unknowns are there? --Tupka217 13:52, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
There are three, if we count this new one from Prime Earth as a new version. The original, then Jiro Osamu, then this new one in Prime Earth. In Prime Earth, he is more or less a Kamen Rider character, with Crazy Shy Lolita Canary as his girlfriend (her only known appearance in this continuity). While is is known as Batman Japan in Batman Incorporated (Volume 2) #11, Batman Eternal #9 names him as "Mr. Unknown". It isn't so much a new outfit for an old character as a completely new character in an old name.GZilla311 (talk) 13:56, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
So it's essentially a PE split? --Tupka217 13:58, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah. It would be a splitter. That's still Jiro Osamu. (And not Crazy Shy Lolita's first appearance. She was in Batman Inc v.2 #11) - Hatebunny (talk) 14:00, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
That's what I'm asking for, yes. (And that's kind of what I meant when I said they're in #11, by the way). It just seems both inconsistent and inaccurate to just put the picture from Prime Earth on the New Earth page and nothing else, when no other pages on the wiki (to my knowledge) that fit into the Batman mythos have this arrangement.GZilla311 (talk) 14:05, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

The Killing joke[]

Some of my friends have recently told me that this a really good but messed up comic but I never read it can someone tell me what it is about? But I'm still a huge batman comic reader The preceding unsigned comment was added by Batbrain439 (talk • contribs).

It's about the Joker showing Batman how one bad day can turn a man insane, basically. And his way of proving it is to use Jim Gordon as an example. - Hatebunny (talk) 01:10, June 6, 2014 (UTC)
Its also the most commonly held "official" backstory for the Joker (who, due to his own multiple choice past as mentioned within the same comic, doesn't really have an official backstory).GZilla311 (talk) 01:12, June 6, 2014 (UTC)
And yeah, it's pretty messed up. I know people who don't like it purely because it's sick. --Tupka217 09:02, June 6, 2014 (UTC)

Prime Earth Version[]

Shouldn't we begin creating the prime-earth Bruce page? I know there's a lot to cover but at least getting a page would be a start. 17:39, November 4, 2014 (UTC)

I've been working on it for a while. We're of the opinion that one page that covers all of Batman history with an awkward continuity jump is better temporarily than two pages where one of them is only partially covered. Batman is the most popular DC character. It's important that the page be well written and consistent. - Hatebunny (talk) 17:43, November 4, 2014 (UTC)
Can we redirect Bruce Wayne (Prime Earth) to some sort of page that explains that it's under construction? This is the third person in a while who has asked about this, and it isn't immediately to them what's up with it. TheD3xus (talk) 18:05, November 4, 2014 (UTC)
It redirects (as it should) to the New 52 section of the Batman (Bruce Wayne) page. I don't see what's so confusing about that. - Hatebunny (talk) 18:09, November 4, 2014 (UTC)

Just seen your page, it's looking fantastic but I think it should be published onto the wiki. That way people can begin contributing and we can have the Batman page done. FinnBaxter223 (talk) 19:23, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

Batman: Strange Days[]

I think Golden Age Batman (the version who was included in the Batman: Strange Days short) should get his own page. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFwOS2R9o_8 --Superior Spider-Man (talk) 12:37, December 5, 2014 (UTC)


I just want to beg for any alternative to the image being used for the Prime Earth version. I absolutely hate that image (and it's a bit too similar to the one we're using for the New Earth version).

I recommend any of these alternatives:

(come to think of it, I don't much like the one we're using as his page image). - Hatebunny (talk) 23:07, January 24, 2015 (UTC)

I vote Vol 2 9. At least it shows his torso. --Tupka217 23:12, January 24, 2015 (UTC)

Simon Petrarch Image[]

Please change the image for Simon Petrarch (Dark Genesis!) to the one on his page, to replace the cover image. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 15:23, December 31, 2015 (UTC)

Batwing II[]

Shouldn't Luke Fox's Batwing II and Calvin Rose's Talon also be included in the "International" heading. Although they weren't part of Batman, Inc., main storyline, they are still considered part of it, aren't they? Also, shouldn't "The Knight I" be also included?--COQUIDRAGON (Hit me!) 16:09, August 11, 2016 (UTC)

Gotham (TV Series) Images[]

Can someone replace the current image of Bruce Wayne for Bruce Wayne Gotham 0001.jpg? I'd also like someone to add Subject 514A Gotham 0001.jpg to Five's? Crazylatin77 (talk) 00:14, April 28, 2019 (UTC)

No. None of the disambigs - none of the main images - should be changed. He was Batman for what, 20 seconds? --Tupka217 09:25, April 28, 2019 (UTC)

Well, it is the final version of the characters and it is when they most resemble their comicbook counterparts. IMO, just the fact that they changed should be a factor, not the time. This is the last episode, after all. It's not like they got much time to develop the characters to begin with. Crazylatin77 (talk) 17:10, April 28, 2019 (UTC)

If someone were to look up info on how Bruce Wayne looks in the series, how Jim Gordon looks, having their final appearance is not helpful. We go for historical perspective.--Tupka217 17:48, April 28, 2019 (UTC)

OK then. Can you please add Five's image for me? Crazylatin77 (talk) 20:05, April 28, 2019 (UTC)

Bruce Wayne (Batman 1966 TV Series) Image Replacement[]

Please replace with File:Bruce Wayne Batman 1966 TV Series 0001.jpg. The current image is fan art with a caption taken from The Dark Knight Returns. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 14:01, May 14, 2019 (UTC)

I don't agree with using that particular stylized promotional photo though, it gives the impression that his costume colors were black and grey. There are hi-resolution photos available with more normal lighting/priniting that would better reflect what it really looked like.--Phantom Stranger (talk) 14:10, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
Then upload it and suggest it on its talk page. This is a placeholder to correct an ancient mistake. --Tupka217 14:19, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
Why am I being treated this way when I'm the one who marked it for replacement to begin with? This has bugged me for years.--Phantom Stranger (talk) 14:41, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
Yep. But image naming conventions apply. --Tupka217 16:16, May 14, 2019 (UTC)

Batman (Fortnite), Catwoman (Fortnite) Batmobile (Rocket League) 89, 2016 & The dark Knight Tumbler[]

Will there be a Fortnite page for batman? as well as one for Catwoman? and the Bodies of the Batmobile/Tumbler from Rocket League? Ishimoto 04:09, September 29, 2019 (UTC)

No. --Tupka217 09:23, September 29, 2019 (UTC)

Superman (DCAU)[]

Should Superman be added here ? My question comes from this episode in which Clark dressed in Batsuit and briefly pretended to be a real Batman. A lot of characters appears on disambiguation pages not only on Batman one, who were briefly dressed up or pretended the character whose disambiguation page belongs to. So should Clark appear here ? BlackHavok (talk) 19:42, December 29, 2019 (UTC+2)

I'm inclined to say no, but Michelle Carter and Harley Quinn appear on the Batgirl page, so there's precedent for yes. --Tupka217 18:48, December 29, 2019 (UTC)

Well characters like Bane, Deathstroke and Hugo Strange appers here so by the same rule Clark should be not diffrent. Also still stying in DCAU guys like Thomas Dalton are shown here so (DCAU comics are semi-canon but still). BlackHavok (talk) 19:55, December 29, 2019 (UTC+2)

The previous was practically a yes already. --Tupka217 19:07, December 29, 2019 (UTC)

Please add character versions[]

Please add:

Add a thumbnav line, preferably with image. --Tupka217 17:58, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

There is none images for either of them on this wiki unfortunately:

Leaving these here until they are. Though many more have impersonated Batman or Bruce Wayne for one story, it might turn into overkill. --Tupka217 09:05, August 22, 2020 (UTC)

Tim Fox[]

Can you guys add Tim Fox under Possible Futures? The Next Batman (talk) 08:18, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Change 2 images[]

Could you please change the Gotham version from Bruce Wayne (Gotham).jpg to Bruce Wayne Gotham 0001.jpg? It offers a look at him as the Dark Knight, which is what this disambiguation page is for. And could you please change the DCEU version from Bruce Wayne (DC Extended Universe).jpg to Bruce Wayne DC Extended Universe 0006.jpg? It's an official image, and it offers a MUCH better look at the character. -- OliverMichaelWest (talk) 13:02, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

It's a disambig for Batman and Bruce Wayne. Gotham Bruce was Batman for 2 seconds.--Tupka217 (talk) 13:47, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
In that case, can we change at least change it to Bruce Wayne Gotham 0003.jpg? -- OliverMichaelWest (talk) 14:00, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

Earth 15 Batman[]

There is a version of Batman on Earth 15 found in the Blackstars storyline.

Error on New 52 multiverse section[]

Earth 29 has a - in the name of the reality. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Legionaire315 (talk • contribs).

Stanley Manor[]

Should Stanley Manor (Vertigo Universe) be added here? He's an obvious analogue of Batman and, based on the inclusion of Jack Carter (Wildstorm Universe) at John Constantine, there is precedent for listing analogues as alternate universe/Elseworlds interpretations. TheJoebro64 (talk) 00:33, 30 September 2021 (UTC)

I'm fine with it. Makes sense to me. --Haroldrocks (talk) 01:13, 30 September 2021 (UTC)

Other Media Titles[]

Batman has probably the most amount of other media titles of any DC hero, and yet they are not listed on this disambiguation page. Superman's titles aren't listed on his page either. Both Batman and Superman are protected pages, so I can't add their titles. Supergirl, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Plastic Man, Black Lightning, Justice League, Birds of Prey, Teen Titans, Animal Man, Amethyst, Shazam and Captain Marvel have an Other Media Titles section, so why not the two most iconic characters? SeanWheeler (talk) 03:21, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

The Batman Movie[]

The Batman isn't out yet, but its prequel novel has been released, so we now have a new version of the character to add. I've created a page for him titled Bruce Wayne (The Batman Movie), and uploaded Bruce Wayne The Batman Movie 001.png for his image. If someone could link that page here, that'd be great. -- MattTheNerd42 (talk) 12:26, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

Let's wait til the movie is out for something better. --Tupka217 (talk) 15:10, 27 February 2022 (UTC)
Day before release, that's still the best we've got. -- MattTheNerd42 (talk) 18:31, 3 March 2022 (UTC)
Well, it's out now today isn't it? And somebody fix this talk page's formatting! SeanWheeler (talk) 04:19, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
Better question, why is the link for the film up with the main comics versions? Shouldn't it be down in the "Other Media" section? -- MattTheNerd42 (talk) 14:09, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
Visibility. --Tupka217 (talk) 14:39, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
Tupka mentioned that the image used for Batman's infobox doesn't work too well for the disambig page, so I've uploaded Bruce Wayne The Batman Movie 009.jpg if you want to replace it. -- MattTheNerd42 (talk) 12:47, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

Earth-1 Batman image[]

I've uploaded Bruce Wayne Earth-1 003.jpg to act as a new image for Earth-1 Batman. It's a better aspect ratio, and it's much more up-to-date and detailed. If someone could change that, that'd be great. Thanks! -- MattTheNerd42 (talk) 15:10, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

There's not enough contrast between bg and fg in that image. As a tiny thumb, that just looks black. --Tupka217 (talk) 15:10, 27 February 2022 (UTC)

Richard Grayson (Earth-Two)[]

Can you change the image of Richard Grayson (Earth-Two) to either File:Batman Dick Grayson Earth-Two 005.JPG or File:Batman Dick Grayson Earth-Two 006.jpg? While wearing the "hybrid" costume, Dick was still going by Robin. -- MysteryScooby (talk) 21:25, 29 August 2022

The first one is too small, the second one too modern and thus, confusing. --Tupka217 (talk) 06:34, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
Now, those citations shouldn't keep following us on this talk page. But yeah, I think we should definitely go with Batman Dick Grayson Earth-Two 005.JPG. SeanWheeler (talk) 02:37, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

Adding Other Media Batmans[]

With the release of DC League of Super-Pets and the premiere of Batwheels, we now have two more versions of the Batman to be added to the "Other Media" section. Also, it's been several months, I think the version from The Batman can be moved down there now. -- MattTheNerd42 (talk) 13:30, 20 September 2022 (UTC)

The Comics Section Appears Incomplete[]

Comics such as Batman and the Outsiders Vol 3 (despite having Vol 2) and Batman and Robin Eternal (despite having both some titles listed as Batman and Robin... and having Batman Eternal) are absent. That's not even mentioning the plethora of miniseries that exist (side note: would it be a good idea to create pages for collected editions by character? Unrelated but typing this comment out made me think of that). Ddaaww (talk) 20:46, 23 March 2023 (UTC)

The comics section is not meant to be every title with "Batman" in it, that's why the Batman Titles category is linked to. It's too long as is.--Tupka217 (talk) 20:55, 23 March 2023 (UTC)


DCeased is listed twice[]

When the Earth-55 (DCeased) version of Bruce and Damian were added to the multiverse section, the DCeased versions from before it was given a universe designation wasn't removed, so now they're on there twice. Conner Kennt69 (talk) 23:43, 11 August 2023 (UTC)
