"The multiverse has a way of aligning fates...It's written in the stars and in this book, or I wouldn't know that on this Earth, Clark Kent is Superman. Where I come from, that would be ridiculous. He can't see past his glasses."

Batman was a vigilante from Earth-89 who served as the protector of Gotham City.


Prior to the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Batman confronted and captured the Joker.[1]


  • Batman suit: While fighting crime in Gotham City, Batman wore a protective black suit stylized like a bat designed to both terrify his enemies and hide his identity from them.[1]



Season 5


  • Given that Batman started his career before 1989 and continued for 30 more years, he is the first known vigilante on Earth-89 and is one of the most experienced superheroes in the known multiverse (aside from J'onn J'onzz).

Behind the scenes

  • Crisis Aftermath confirms that this is the Batman from the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher films, even referring to the "Batnipples" as being canon.
  • There is some inconsistency in this however, as Batman never captured Joker in those films, but possibly gazette is talking about his defeat (death) at the hands of Batman.
  • In the DC comics, Bruce Wayne is a vigilante hero known as Batman, the protector of Gotham City, a man dressed like a bat who fights against evil and strikes terror into the hearts of criminals everywhere. He is also a former mentor of Dick Grayson/Nightwing, who is the protector of Blüdhaven. He is also an occasional ally of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Barry Allen/Flash, and Clark Kent/Superman, the latter third of whom is his most frequent ally.
