This is it! The BAT-CHAMPIONSHIP!
Last time on BAT-MADNESS! We revealed the Bat-Final Four! They were:
- Don Newton Group Winner: Adam West, 1966: The iconic Caped Crusader took down the surprising round one winner Lewis Wilson in a clean sweep.
- Jim Aparo Group Winner: Kevin Conroy, 1992: The Animated Series VO legend took down everyone’s 1989 favorite, Michael Keaton.
- Bill Finger Group Winner: Diedrich Bader, 2008: Brave and Bold’s Bat bested George “Remember me from E.R., please” Clooney.
- Neal Adams Group Winner: Bruce Greenwood, 2010: The Gotham By Gaslight Knight defeated Christian Bale.
And their “Final Four” pairings:
Diedrich Bader (1) versus Adam West (7)
Kevin Conroy (3) versus Bruce Greenwood (5)
So, what were the ICRVN choices?
West Over Bader: Bader is outstanding, but part of his inspiration for his version of Batman is Adam West. ‘Nuff said.
Conroy Over Greenwood: In a battle of VO Bats, there is simply no other choice than the man who literally reinvented the character.
What about the Patrons choices? Seriously, do I really need to reveal the results? We all saw this coming. And it was a clean sweep across the board.
So, for all the Belfry, Patrons will vote to determine who the Best Batman in media really is:
Is it Adam West or Kevin Conroy?
