View Full Version : Whose Changed

I was thinking back a couple days ago and realized, Batman has never changed.
Aqua man- Went from navy boy to harpoon wielding hippy.
Wonder Woman- once a pilot of the invisible jet up until she lost it and found out she could fly.
Green Lantern and Flash have even been different people.
Super went through a BIG change when he got blue skin...I dont know what that was about.
Batman has always been Batman though...except going from blue and grey to black and grey.
Anymore you can think of?

Well, if you're going to count Superman Red and Blue, then you need to count AzBats and the short time that Dick was Batman.

Wonder Woman's "change" has been more than ... whatever it is you're describing. Different people have been in the role: Hippolyta, Princess Diana and Donna Troy.
Aquaman's change is more than just one of tone. In Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis, he's apparently a different person (a different Arthur Curry).
Batman's changed dramatically in tone. But more than that, other people have assumed the role of Batman: Jean-Paul Valley (Azrael) and Dick Grayson have both worn the costume for extended periods.
Other heroes who've been "played" by different people: Atom, Blue Beetle, Firestorm, Catwoman, Batgirl, Robin, Speedy, Kid Flash, Captain America, Iron Man, Goliath, Ant-Man, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Wonder Girl, Hourman, Doctor Mid-Nite, Doctor Fate, The Spectre, Starman, Liberty Belle, Mister Terrific, Vindicator/Guardian, Yellowjacket, Captain Britain, Union Jack ... the list goes on.

Batman has changed quite a bit since he was created, both in costume and in character. The original Batman used a gun, now he won't touch one. He went from a campy funny version in the 60's to a grim and gritty Dark Knight in the 80's and 90's.
In fact, every major Marvel or DC character has been through a "change" of one kind or another since being created.

I remember reading Denny O'Neill's comments in the back pages of Knightfall novelization mentioning those changes. In fact he said that the main idea of Knightfall was because the only constant in Batman's changes through the years is that The Batman Does Not Kill. Although we know that the original Batman kill Cossacks and slap bitches, that fact has been pretty much ignored and erased.

Supergirl...I am even LOST on that character by now :( which sucks because I love her but they've got like 8 different Supergirls now. Although I am quite partial to the one that was introduced in the Supes/Bats series.
