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 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.

Mostly New 52 stuff here, she'd be out of place.

Maybe, but you could reinvent her for the New 52.

Just needs Catwoman and Flamebird and I think it'd be damned near perfect.
