Batman Arkham has a lot of clothes that Bruce Wayne can use to play around with. Here is a list of the best in the series.
Like Marvel’s Spider-Man, Batman has been around for a long time in comics, which means he has a huge closet full of different clothes from different types of media and entertainment over the years. The Batman Arkham games began with just two suits, but they quickly grew to have more Batman outfits than any other game. Some had bonuses, and others let players try out controlling the suits for the first time.
It’s crazy how many suits Batman can wear in the game. Each of these clothes has a long past on its own for sure. The Caped Crusader is one of the most famous superheroes of all time, and players love the idea of controlling him in a bunch of different clothes and beating up his enemies until they die. Of course, some of these outfits look better than others, but players can always pick the one they like best when it comes to Bruce Wayne’s suits while they explore the Arkham games’ world.
Mad Hatter Batman
The Mad Hatter’s twisted version of Batman isn’t really a suit per se. Unlike the other items on this list, the player can’t get it and wear it, and it only appears during one special side quest. This crazy version of Batman’s image, on the other hand, makes the story of the Mad Hatter a lot stronger.
It’s fun to do the side quests in the Arkham games because they have little details like these. The fact that Batman looks completely crazy in this suit makes the games even more appealing and shows why this is the bar that superhero games have been trying to reach for a long time.
The history of Batman is pretty interesting, and most people don’t know much about Zur-en-Arrh or how important this alter ego was to Bruce Wayne’s life. The billionaire superhero really thought of everything. For example, he programmed a full alter ego into himself that will come to life if his mind is attacked by unknown forces.
The outfit was first made for a character named Tlano, who was the Batman of a planet called Zur-en-Arrh. In later comics, Grant Morrison brought this character back for a story where Bruce Wayne’s violent, crazy side comes out after he loses his sense of self. That’s an interesting thought, and the suit is a nice change of pace, even if it’s not the most stylish thing the Caped Crusader can wear.
As the 1970s went on, comic books became very famous. Batman was one of many well-known superheroes who enjoyed his time in the spotlight. Because of this, one of the most famous Batsuits of all time was made. The blue color became a trademark for the Bat as he beat his enemies with a variety of powerful tools and his amazing close-combat fighting skills.
This suit is in both Arkham City and Arkham Knight, which is a nice change for Batman’s style in the game. This isn’t the most innovative suit ever, but players who want to experience a piece of Batman’s history will love what this mod has to offer.
Azrael’s Knightfall Batsuit
Most people know who Azrael is because he was in Arkham Knight. On the other hand, comic book fans saw his name in Arkham Origins, where it was on one of Batman’s suits.
Azrael’s Knightfall Batsuit is one of a kind in the game just for being different. Still, the costume can look pretty bad sometimes, and players may now enjoy how strange it looks all the time.
It’s not uncommon for comic books to play around with the idea of different Earths. This is also true in the DC Universe, which has played around with different ideas about a lot of heroines.
Batman is obviously a part of this creative experiment, since different versions of this character have been seen in different universes. Earth-2 is a different world where Batman wears this costume, which does look pretty cool.
Justice League 3000 Batman
The Justice League 3000 played with the great idea of cloning and remaking superheroes over and over again to save the world. The same thing happened to Batman, whose future outfit was also very nice to look at.
Flying around Gotham City in this cool suit is pretty cool, and the suit doesn’t look too out of place… for the most part. We all know that players will soon switch to one of the many clothes that Batman: Arkham Knight has to offer.
The Batman movie suit from 1989, with its yellow belt and bat symbol, is just as memorable as Jack Nicholson’s turn as the Joker. Batman: Arkham Knight put the suit and the Batmobile from that movie into a single digital item that could be bought.
People talk for a long time about which actor played Bruce Wayne and/or Batman the best, and Michael Keaton is usually near the top of most people’s lists. Players can play as their favorite Batman with the click of a button if that one is their favorite.
If players are unfamiliar with Flashpoint, it’s a famous Elseworlds DC story that has Flash messing with past events that cause a butterfly effect, resulting in the origins and events of other heroes changing.
The Flashpoint Batman suit is what Bruce’s dad, Thomas Wayne, wears because Flash changed the course of events in Flashpoint and his son died instead of him and his wife. The suit itself is much scarier, and it shows how angry and sad a parent is when their kid dies.
The Extreme Environments suit, otherwise known as the XE suit, may have only been usable in DLC, but it’s so different from a Batman suit that it gets a spot near the top.
It was used in the Arkham Origins DLC called “Cold Cold Heart,” and it helps Batman keep his body temperature at the right level when he’s in very cold places. As an added bonus, all of his batarangs glow because they are so hot near or inside the XE suit.
Batman will almost never wear anything that isn’t black. One reason for this is that he likes to attack from the dark and does a lot of covert work at night. Putting on an all-white suit would make this a lot harder than he’d like.
However, that is not the case when the suit is a White Lantern’s. The suit doesn’t do anything special and isn’t unique other than being all white, but as we already said, it’s worth a look at least once just so you don’t have to wear an all-black suit.
The Dark Knight
A lot of people think that The Dark Knight is not only the best Batman movie ever, but also the best comic book movie ever. One could say that Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker is what makes the movie great and that Christian Bale’s performance as Batman/Bruce Wayne is just fine.
In any case, Christopher Nolan’s second Batman movie had a suit that was just for that movie. You can wear the suit from the 2008 movie in Arkham Knight, and Rocksteady Studios was nice enough to give it away as free DLC when the game came out.
Adam West 60’s Batsuit
For a whole generation of kids, Adam West was just a Family Guy figure. But for many others, he helped make the bat a real animal in the 1960s.
It’s too bad that his suit in Arkham Origins was only available on the PlayStation 3. It was part of the Knightfall DLC pack, which was only available on that system. Since he died not long ago, it’s great to see that his role as Batman lives on and shows how important Adam West is to the memory of what may be the most famous superhero of all time.
The Dark Knight Returns
Rocksteady Studios set the standard with Batman: Arkham City by giving Bruce Wayne a lot of different suits in their trilogy of games, and boy did they come out swinging.
The outfit from Frank Miller’s 1986 story “The Dark Knight Returns” was one of the cooler ones that they put in the game’s skin pack. For players who haven’t seen it before, this Batman was older, stockier, and a lot meaner. This skin changed how Batman looked and how big he was in Drift Boss.
There aren’t many things that make the original Arkham Batman suit in Batman: Arkham Asylum stand out as being original, but there are a few small details that do. It was nice that there was only one possible Caped Crusader outfit the first time through, even though later games added a lot of different ones.
It has a strong case for being at the top of this list since it is the most important suit in the series of games. However, like most popular characters, there are a few suits that are just too good to leave at the top.
Batman: The Animated Series
People who play Arkham City can change their looks to look like Batman from the popular cartoon show. The suit is part of a downloadable content pack with a lot of different skins.
If a person wore the suit, they would also see characters from the animated series, like Catwoman and Robin, dressed in their costumes. It can be a little off-putting to wear the suit in-game because the art styles are so different, but fans of the animated show will enjoy being able to handle that Batman in a major AAA Batman game.
If you bought the DLC skin pack, you could also wear Terry McGinnis’ suit from Batman Beyond in Arkham City. Even though wearing it didn’t give the player any extra bonuses or prizes, it was still cool to look good while playing the game.
It doesn’t look like there will ever be another Batman Beyond game with the same level of polish and cash as the Arkham series, so fans should enjoy the chance to don the suit and imagine Terry walking around Gotham City in the present day.
