How did Batman Day become a thing? Why does Batman have a day? Is it a coincidence that Batman Day falls on Doug’s birthday? Am I going to attempt to answer these questions?

No. No, I’m not.

It’s been 80-years since this character first appeared in our pop culture consciousness. You either get it, or you don’t.

There are 6 free batman games available over at Epic Games. The Batman Arkham trilogy of games and the Lego Batman trilogy of games for those of you looking for a more wholesome experience. I grabbed them all, because. FREE. Duh. I remember playing some of the Batman Arkham Asylum game on the Xbox back in the day, but not much else about it. It’s a darker, grittier take on Batman. The Lego Batman, well, we can all guess what that’ll be like.

You can also get your Batman wallpaper fix by looking at this post from the arohen archive, Batman Wallpapers. I had to rebuild it, because the image links were broken, but it’s a thing once again.

Not sure what got into me last night, but I went a little batty and put this collection of 1920 x 1080 HD wallpapers together. Batman as he has appeared in all his live-action glory. Enjoy.
