Batman's secret superpower? Graphic design

The image above, featuring pretty much every variation of the Batman symbol, has been tearing its way across Tumblr for a few days now. I first saw it at Quipsologies, which describes it thusly: "Proof that Batman has one of the greatest logos ever: Recognizable (and equally bad ass) in any incarnation."

Sounds about right to me!

Here's something I'd like to throw to the group, though: Which of these Bat symbols do you consider to be the "real" one? Weaned as I was on Tim Burton's Batman, I have to go with the fifth one down in the third column--that's the version I myself wear in the classic yellow-on-black t-shirt form. What say you, Batfans?
