You mean they actually do comics featuring different variations of Batman? That's kind of cool. I always thought all the different Batmans were just an attempt to milk action figures.
You mean you've never heard of Elseworlds? Gotham by Gaslight was the one that started it all, a one-shot graphic novel putting Batman in a 19th-century setting. It was so successful that DC decided to do a whole line of graphic novels called Elseworlds which put various DC heroes in various alternate-history settings or "What If?" premises.

I believe the "steampunk Batman" action figure depicted above is a rendering of the Gotham by Gaslight/Master of the Future version of Batman.
