The Best '90s Animated Heroes Of All Time
If you're watching this, we're going to go ahead and assume that you know who Batman is. What you might not know, however, is that Batman: The Animated Series is quite possibly the best version of the character to ever exist, a perfect synthesis of over 50 years of comics that were distilled into bold animation and subtle, sophisticated stories.
Almost every version of Batman is super cool and intimidating in their superhero persona, but what makes this version of the character surprisingly refreshing is that, bear with us here, he's actually a well-adjusted guy. Unlike in some portrayals of the Dark Knight, who treat their Bruce Wayne persona as an afterthought, this Batman understands the importance of work-life balance. The animated Bruce Wayne is genuinely kind and connected to those around him, a proper father figure to Robin who's not afraid to show affection to his surrogate son, and a philanthropist who does as much good for Gotham during the day as he does at night.
You might think that this more hopeful tone would take some of the punch out of these stories, but if anything, it often makes them hit even harder, increasing the dichotomy between Batman's two separate lives. For instance, when you start off by establishing that Bruce Wayne and Harvey Dent are actually genuine friends who knew each other before things went bad, it makes Harvey's inevitable transformation into the villainous Two-Face even more tragic. The darkness is even darker when you contrast it with the light, so for our money, the animated series Batman is as good as the Dark Knight gets.
