Comic Book Alphabet of Cool – B

by  in Comic News Comment

Today’s feature is about possibly the coolest prefix in comics.

Bat-

There may be a bit of a backlash against the Bat prefix, especially after the campy Batman TV series of the 60s, which took the concept to absurdest heights, but I think it is still pretty darn cool for Batman to have this many neat stuff, all named Bat-something.

The Batarang showed up mere MONTHS after Batman first debuted!


The Batmobile soon followed…


With it soon taking on the form more known to fans…


Just checking out the Batcave, you can see all the cool Bat-related paraphernalia Batman has in his possession.



Is it sometimes a bit too silly?

Perhaps, but really no sillier than a grown man swinging around rooftops dressed as a bat, right?

So if you’re going to embrace THAT concept, I say, why not embrace the Bat- prefix as a whole?

Am I missing a particularly cool bat- prefix? Does Ace the Bat-Hound count?

Feel free to also point out the silliest bat-prefixed item you can think of from the comics!

Thanks to Scott Tipton for the awesome scans!
