Batman has had a long career! His humble beginnings started in 1939 in Detective Comics, but now he’s the subject of countless comic books, a plethora of blockbuster movies, and even some critically acclaimed video game series. He’s certainly come a long way, hasn’t he? It seems that the DC Comics character is no longer hiding in the shadows, but is a common household name these days.

Gotham City has a pretty ambivalent attitude towards Batman. Some days they love him, since he’s been defeating bad guys for as long as anyone can remember. Other days they view him as an outlaw, since he’s dishing out vigilante justice outside the confines of due process. It’s safe to say that Gotham City won’t be erecting any Batman statues in honor of the Caped Crusader any time soon. Of course, the villains of Gotham would rather see the city sporting statues of themselves instead of ol’ Bats! We think they’d be quite happy to see you sporting a tribute to them on your mantel. Here a few of our favorite members of the Batman rogues gallery.
Batman Animated Joker Statue
The Joker is the crème de la crème when it comes to villainy. He’s gone through plenty of transformations through the years, from goofy slapstick character to merciless criminal. We’ve seen him clash wits with the Dark Knight on countless occasions, but perhaps his most well-known incarnation comes from Batman: The Animated Series. Voiced by the talented Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame, he walks the line between a psychotic killer clown and wacky cartoon character with such skill, that it’s almost hard to imagine The Joker in any other form! For those who can appreciate his performance, this Batman Animated Joker Statue represents the pinnacle of Batman collectible statues.
1966 Batman Catwoman Statue
Catwoman represents a special kind of dangerous when it comes to Batman. Against most villains, it’s simply a matter of unraveling their plan and letting the law deal with their crimes. That’s a little more difficult when there are feelings involved! Batman and Catwoman have always found themselves drawn to one another, perhaps both desiring a taste of what lies on the other side of the law! While fate often keeps her and Batman from one another, you should add this Catwoman statue to your collection! She’s based on the 1966 iteration of the iconic villain. The level detail on this statue might just have you falling in love with Catwoman, just like Bruce Wayne.

His Batmobile has evolved many times over the years, turning from a tuned up race-car, into a full-on command center for fighting crime. The particular Batmobile comes from the 1989 Tim Burton movie. It even includes with a small bendable Batman figure so you can fondly remember the Michael Keaton days of Batman.
DC Collectibles Batman V Superman
They’re the original odd couple in comics. Batman is a serious vigilante, who bends the rules to get the bad guys. He doesn’t have any powers and uses only his wits to defeat villains. Superman is a stickler for following orders and has more powers than you can shake a stick at. He defeats his enemies with laser vision! In comics, movies, and TV, these two superheroes have been the best of buds… and they’ve been the worst of enemies. In Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman, they were a little bit of both! This collectible Batman v Superman figure set helps you commemorate their little meeting with die-cast figures!
