What do you think DC should do mark this occasion ?

What kind of collectible would you like to see celebrating his 70 years ?

Not a collectable as such, but I'd like to see Bill Finger finally given credit for co-creation of Batman.

Guess it would be hard to sum up 70 years of a character in one item.

Perhaps some sort of special reprinting of Detective Comics #27

I'd love to see a figure or a Batman B&W statue based on Norm Breyfogle's art. He was always one of my favorite Batman artists.

Plus, they should cancel all things Batman R.I.P. Horrible storyline that's already been done. :D

Am suprised that no one's wanted something to represent the initial Batman concept from Bob Kane's original art (ok yes there's good evidence that it was amended tracings)
Dial B for Blog - The Haunting of Robert Kane (http://www.dialbforblog.com/archives/391/)

and I'm not knocking those other suggestions, but shouldn't a milestone such as this represent the most significant part of Batman. His creation

In addition, I would love a ^^^^ Sprang Batman, Robin, and Joker. Oh, and an oversized typewriter or musical instrument to compliment those figures. (if you want a good idea of what it looks like, check out the episode of the Batman cartoon of the nineties where the three kids are discussing what they think Batman looks like - also a very good representation of the Miller Batman from The Dark Knight Returns with the Carrie Kelly Robin).

I like the idea of Bill Finger finally getting some credit, good suggestion.
Oh yeah, a Neal Adams HT would be pretty sweet too!

I like everyone's suggestions so far but it seems to me that all the figures and statues suggested so far are merchandise that given enough time will come out eventually anyway. I think whatever we get needs to be grander more prestigious.

:lol
I don't know, maybe cause Bats get more respect from DC and WB when it comes to merchandise, besides didn't Bats just achieve the 2nd highest grossing film of all time?:rolleyes:

Plus Bats doesn't have the innevitable question mark hanging over his head (unless you count the Riddler :lol) of wether he'll be lost in a court battle with his creator.

DC own Batman lock stock and Barrel, Superman's more of a grey area, especially after losing the rights to use the Superboy name.
