Bat Family: Gotham Crusaders by phil-cho Bat Family: Gotham Crusaders by phil-cho
Enjoy!! Here are Gotham's crusaders from left to right: Huntress (Helena Bertinelli), Batwing (David Zamvimbi), Blackbat (Cassandra Cain), Red Robin (Tim Drake), Batwoman (Kate Kane), Robin (Damian Wayne), Batman (Bruce Wayne), Nightwing (Dick Grayson), Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Red Hood (Jason Todd), Spoiler (Stephanie Brown), Batman Beyond (Terry McGinnis), and Thaddeus Crane (Alfred Pennyworth)

Of coarse there are more crusaders like Gordon, Azrael, Blue Beetle, and the likes, but I consider these guys to be in the family of Bats and Birds.

I love this piece; not gonna deny it. I LOVE it. It's a great show of all of the great characters that have come out of the Batman comics so far, as well as showing us as fans how far it has all come. I like the fact you included all the recent changes to the DC universe, as well as new characters to add to the Bat-Clan (i.e Bat-Wing) I love the use of colors as well as the light and dark textures being used, I like the fact that you gave real depth and character to each of them, makes them seem more real. overall, i would say that this is a great piece of art :)
What do you think?

Everybody seems to forget Azrael. Perhaps its because he's rarely worked with the rest of the Bat family.

I can't help but think someone is missing.


There's a batgirl I've seen with random stichings (goth style?) and no mouth hole.  Who was she? does anyone know?  I think she ran into batman in the comics, like she worked while he was 'away'...

She's in there - just wearing a different costume. There's bound to be someone missing though as this is now a little out dated (2012). And I'm sure there are others in the family I don't even know about that predate my existence - Batman's been around way longer than I have.

Black Bat (Cassandra Cain) - the Asian girl with the Batgirl outfit, but Huntress looking mask, and ninja forearm wraps. Hope that description makes sense haha.

:iconchaos-the-chosen-one:
wait, cassandra cain is asian?! >_>
I dont really read hero comics... i just stick to the animated stuff I like.  (Young justice season 1, kicked ass, season 2... frak off. >_>)
I LOOOVED Justice League Doom. Batman was awesome, Alfred was awesome, and it would have been even better if Batman told Superman he already had a piece of kryptonite in that one scene. XD  which i think he mentions in at least one other film.
Frontier was pretty good too.  Was glad to see superman go down right off the bat instead of being the leader of the fight!


anyway, ... ah google confirms it.  Hmm interesting.

Only missing the Jean-Paul Valley 'Azrael/Knightfall/Bataman 2' (who has been revived & is in conflict w/ Azrael II), Terry McGinnis (who has been transported to the new timeline), Harper Row (Bluebird) & Bette Kane 'Hawkfire/Flamebird' (who was the original, blonde Batgirl, who was Batwoman's sidekick, unlike Barbara>, and have to update Batwing to Luscious Fox's son Luke Fox. Otherwise this is PERFECT, 'cause no one on this sight seems to have been able to remember this much of the core bat-family! I commend you, my friend

What about Betty Kane, Kate's sidekick, the first Batgirl, They were created in 1959 and 1961 after "Seduction of the Innocent" was publish in 1954, the book stated that comic books during that time were too violent and comic book characters like Batman and Robin showed homoerotic tendencies, so batman stop using a gun after 1955 which was also part of the anti-gun act of 1955 and Detective Comics (DC) created Batwoman and Batgirl (Kate and Betty Kane) to say Batman and Robin weren't gay. Betty Kane later Bette Kane takes the name FlameBird.
