What kind of super pet should Batman have?

Id Superman had Krypto and the wonder twisn has the purple monkey then it means Batman could have a pet as well, someday in the comics or even the movie's, asuming they choose to return the movies back to having the feel of the 60's era show.

For me a Bat would be to ovious so I would go with a Robin that can transform into a sexy catsuit wearing human female during action scenes. It would be a totally new way to take the concept of Robin in a new direction, while also working of the the idea of Sueperheros with pets.

Goood bad dog! I have to agree. His part in the Return Of The Joker animated movie deftly illustrates it.

He's Batman. No pets-no close associations. Period. Stupid thought.

Re: What kind of super pet should Batman have?

I always thought a German Sheppard was a strong and noble "sidekick" kind of dog. I could see Bruce Wayne getting attached to a German Sheppard . I never knew about Ace.

Ace in Batman Beyond was only loosely based on the original Ace the Bat-Hound from the '50s comics. Yes, Batman did, in fact, have a "super pet," just like many of the other heroes. Ace was a German Shepherd who wore a cowl and fought crime alongside Batman and Robin.

Ace also appeared in the Krypto animated series, and has been immortalized as an action figure a couple of times.

Re: What kind of super pet should Batman have?

A masked police dog would be consistent with the detective nature of the character. A trained bat that functions as Redwing does for the Falcon would also be cool in an old school way.

Of course, to be consistent with the garbage that they churn out these days, he would have to have a pit bull that kills on sight.

He's got a cave full of bats and has had like three or four kids calling themsleves "Robin" living at his house. He sucks at being a "loner" To suck more at it, he'd have to change his name to Wolverine.
