Today (and everyday) I Love Batman

Yep, it's true. I'm a sucker for a man in a batsuit.

I've loved them all. Even Adam West was pretty impressive to a pre-teen after-school-television fan. But, oh how the batsuits have improved since the 1960s...

I had the good fortune of seeing Michael Keaton in real life at the Relay Station in St. Anthony in about 1997 or 1998. I was rendered speechless (astonishing, I know). I couldn't even look him in the eye. Danny somehow finagled an autograph for me (isn't he great?). Today I will say that Michael Keaton was my favorite. But don't expect the same answer tomorrow. Val Kilmer was pretty hot. And George Clooney was surprisingly good. Christian Bale has been impressive so far, and I can't wait to see the new movie. I'd be Catwoman or Poison Ivy opposite any one of them. Meeeeow.

With that said, here's a trip down memory lane. Which one is your favorite?

I'll have to go with Val Kilmer...he is my favorite. The new movie was great though, but the only person I was there to watch was Heath Ledger, and it lived up to the hype.

I wonder if the time you saw Michael Keaton at the Relay Station was the same time I saw him down at the river by my house with Mike Lawson. Tim came running in the house, "BATMAN IS OUTSIDE!!!" Of course we all just gawked out of our big front window. Haha.

Until I read your post I forgot all about all of those Batmans.
