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?

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.

I think they should think of making this animated series.

You even selected the characters for them for every season.

Good job man

Thanks! I was trying to think of it as a Batman series by way of DBZ - where each season would have one main bad guy, and the cast changes for each season. You'd get to see Dick Grayson grow into Nightwing the same way Gohan grew up throughout the seasons of DBZ. So far though, Batman shows don't last longer that 65 episodes or so (while DBZ had 500+ episodes or something crazy like that), and the most recent "Beware the Batman" is already over after one season :( - making this kind of Batman show improbable. As a huge Bat-fan, I honestly wouldn't mind if they completely stole my idea, and just did it without me. Still, it seems very unlikely that a show like this could happen. Fingers crossed that DC/WB makes a Bat-family centric animated series next!!

Well, chalk it up to DBZ stemming from a solid source material like a Manga. So many timelines and stories make comics more confusing, and you have a clear beginning, middle, and end for something like DBZ. They stretch the hell out of it with filler, but still.

Anyway, as for a Bat-Family series, it has potential. The problem, I feel, is marketing to the hardcore fan is key in setting yourself apart. My personal pick would be to base the story around a solo Red Robin, but have him regularly interact with members of the Bat-Family to solve issues in both hero business and personal business. Maybe have Tim be his "nice" older brother figure, Damien his "rival," and Todd be his "Jerky-but-with-a-heart-of-gold," older brother. Occasionally seeing Bruce as the hardline father figure.

You sort of get where I'm going with all this though, so I'll stop. It's an interesting deal. Personally, I feel that the DCaU has enough Batman material as it is...I'm more hoping for a Robin/Red Hood/Red Robin series somewhere in the future. Maybe something with Kid Flash, Arsenal/Speedy, or Aqualad would be cool to see.

I take it you mean Dick as his nice older brother figure, but I'd love a show like that! It would essentially be the Ninja Turtles, with Batman playing the role of Splinter, and the Robins being the Turtles - the only difference is the focus would be on one of them instead of all four. We can only dream for now..

But at the same time, I'll always love whatever Batman thing they put out haha. I can never get enough! It's great that they've been incorporating other Robins than Dick Grayson recently. First with "Under the Red Hood", and now "Son of Batman." I have a feeling we'll be seeing characters like Tim, Cass, and Steph, very soon.

I love this piece, but I have one small criticism.  Everyone, except Alfred, has their fists clenched.  I think you should either make there hands relaxed, or put them into action poses.

The first Batwing was David Zamvimbe, a "Batman" of Africa appointed by Batman himself for Batman Incorporated. Now Luke Fox, son of Lucius, uses the name Batwing with a new suit. Pretty cool characters - I don't know much about them, but it's always cool to see Batman's influence spread!
