Drawing Crazy Patterns – The Strange Costumes of Batman!

In this feature, I spotlight five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics).

Today we look at five examples of strange costumes Batman has!


In World’s Finest Comics #7, Batman and Robin have to deal with extreme cold. Luckily, they have costumes with wires throughout, giving off heat!

In Detective Comics #165, we see a trio of strange Batman costumes, including one that is pretty much insane.

First off, a Bat-glider costume…

Next, a SCUBA-Bat costume…

But after Batman is injured, they are forced to use the Batman costume that, earlier in the issue, Robin hoped that they would never have to use (“Chekov’s Batman Costume,” as it were)….

Yep, a Batman costume that Robin can use. The insane part – they put a bird on the emblem, thereby hurting the very intent of the costume!! Insanity!

Finally, speaking of insanity, check out Detective Comics #241. Dick Grayson notices some crooks plotting a scheme involving TV cameras, but in the process, injures his arm.

So Batman and Robin have to go everywhere a lot of TV cameras are, and, for some reason, Batman is wearing multi-colored costumes…

Eventually, the answer is revealed…

That is some plan there, Batman! Then again, it DID work, so I apologize, Batman, you are the man!
