The most popular Batman quotes (149+)

Batman is the superhero protector of Gotham City, a man dressed like a bat who fights against evil and strikes terror into the hearts of criminals everywhere.

In this article, we collected the most popular Batman quotes. 

One of the most iconic fictional characters in the world, Batman has dedicated his life to an endless crusade, a war on all criminals in the name of his murdered parents, who were taken from him when he was just a child.

Since that tragic night, he has trained his body and mind to near physical perfection to be a self-made Super Hero. 

He’s developed an arsenal of technology that would put most armies to shame.

And he’s assembled teams of his fellow DC Super Heroes, like the Justice League, the Outsiders and Batman, Incorporated.

A playboy billionaire by day, Bruce Wayne’s double life affords him the comfort of a life without financial worry, a loyal butler-turned-guardian and the perfect base of operations in the ancient network of caves beneath his family’s sprawling estate.

By night, however, he sheds all pretense, dons his iconic scalloped cape and pointed cowl and takes to the shadowy streets, skies, and rooftops of Gotham City.

Some dumb Russian general pushed the wrong button and launched one of their million missiles, or maybe NASA misaimed one of our test rockets.

Batman and Superman aren’t coming and James Bond doesn’t have a trick up his sleeve to save us this time. In a week or a month, we’ll all freeze to death, just like in that Twilight Zone episode where the pretty lady is burning up with fever, dreaming the sun is baking the world dry, when really the Earth has dropped out of orbit, is hurtling further and further away from the sun, rapidly turning into a big ball of ice.”

5.  “When it came to “getting away from it all,” there really weren’t many places quite like the top of the tallest mountain in the world. He glanced around the summit, noting the other reason why he enjoyed coming up here. It was tradition for every expedition to the top of Everest to leave something behind—a small token or marker indicating their successful climb to the famous peak. Each one was different and each one seemed to reflect the personality of the party it represented: small flags and banners with the hand-written names of climbers past, a used oxygen canister, a spare glove, even a small metal lunchbox with (Clark noted with a small smile) a picture of Superman on the cover. To Clark, each of these markers indicated the pinnacle of human achievement, the fulfilled promise of the best the human race had to offer. And today, it represented something else as well: man’s ability to conquer the harsh reality of nature… a point in stark contrast to the previous night’s activities.

This set were Sherpa prayer flags, each displaying a symbol, not of a distant god or mythological beast, but denoting some aspect of the enlightened human mind: compassion, perfect action, fearlessness. His thoughts turned to another example of the peak of human achievement, of what one man with drive, desire and dedication could accomplish without the benefit of superpowers or metagene enhancement. One that held a much more personal meaning to Clark.

Bruce.”

― Chris Dee, World’s Finest: Red Cape, Big City

6.  “We divided the bar of chocolate and tried to console ourselves with Batman, but he was really a bad man. Not only, as the cover had promised, did he climb up the outsides of houses; one of his chief pleasures was evidently to frighten women in their sleep; he could also fly off through the air by spreading out his cloak, taking millions of dollars with him, and his deeds were described in an English such as is taught neither in Continental schools nor in the schools of England and Ireland; Batman was strong and terribly just, but hard, and toward the wicked he could even be cruel, for now and again he would bash in someone’s teeth, a procedure fittingly rendered with the word “Screech.” There was no comfort in Batman.”

― Heinrich Böll, Irisches Tagebuch

7.  “The antidote to joy is dread.”

― Sam Hamm, Batman: Blind Justice

8.  “Holy broken nose, Batman!”

― Veronica Blade, From Fame to Shame

9.  “So, you play Batman at night, and fix-it man during the day?” His nose wrinkled in a way that was entirely too adorable for his tough guy demeanor. She didn’t say a word about it though, knowing he’d never do it again if she pointed it out.

“Batman? Batman’s a pathetic jelly donut. He’s a little Richie Rich that prances ’round in fancy tights and dress up panties, too much of a wuss to do anythin’ without a mask and a prepubescent scarecrow as a sidekick.”

― Amy Cook, Edge of Instinct

10.    “always be yourself unless you can be batman then be batman”

― logan

11.   “Green Lantern: “What are your powers anyway? You can’t fly.”

20.    “[On the subject of Heath Ledger’s Joker] This character who attracts psychotic henchmen may have lingering symptoms from his own past psychosis. He keeps making involuntary, repetitive movements—flicking his tongue, smacking his mouth—which suggest tardive dyskinesia, a condition that arises as a consequence of long-term or high-dosage use of antipsychotic (neuroleptic) medication.”

― Travis Langley, Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight

The Joker’s head rotates… the green lasers of his eyes target the keys at the big man’s belt, and he shakes his head.”

Now that’s an out-of-the-box calling. What sort of person makes a life change like that without radical submission?

Without that submission, without an understanding that there is something greater out there, the principles of the comic villain look far more reasonable.”

― Paul Asay, God on the Streets of Gotham: What the Big Screen Batman Can Teach Us about God and Ourselves

29.    “But the real joy he feels doesn’t come in the guise of Bruce the billionaire playboy. It comes as Batman – when he does what he was meant to do. When he follows his purpose.”

The outermost doll isn’t a lie; mine still offers part of who I am, but it’s not all of who I am. As I get closer to people, the nesting dolls open and the masks change. But it’s a rare person whom I allow to see what’s at my core: my innermost thoughts and fears, my dreams and desires, my pettiness and peevishness.”

34.   “There’s a scream that can’t be silenced.It’s rising, growing louder and louder. It’s the scream of a child abandoned, suddenly long ago. As the scream echoed then in that alley, it echoes now in my mind. It penetrates all the dark places. It slams into the loss, bounces against the regret.. and the pain.”

Jim Gordon: Bruce Wayne?”

45 Batman quotes

1.  “Harvey. Grundy. Myself. Each of us lost pieces of our lives……and hid what was left in the dark, is this what I want for myself? A world that exists only in darkness?”

― Jeph Loeb, Batman: Dark Victory

2.  “I know there’s something about me you want. I can tell. You go all rigid when I’m around.”

4.  “Run, Bruce! Run from the truth! Run like you always have…but when you feel that prickling on the back of your neck, know that I’m coming for you! Reaching you from the other side of your reflection!”

― Scott Snyder

5.  “Perhaps the suspicions stemmed from the distinct lack of women in Batman’s world. True, he crafted his Bruce Wayne alter ego to be an idle playboy, which meant there were a lot of beautiful women in his life. But, the most important female figure in his world seemed only to be his sainted, slain mother, to whose memory, along with that of his late father, Bruce swore to uphold justice and thwart evil. Bruce and Batman might have had romances with girls like debutante Julie Madison or reporter Vicki Vale, but showed neither any true affection. The one female who generated the most heat with Batman was the seductive, whip-wielding jewel thief Catwoman. Of course, since she was on the wrong side of the law, any chance of a romance with Batman was immediately crushed.

(…)

Batman’s sexy foe Catwoman was deemed too racy for the new world of the Comics Code. She was gone by 1954.”

― Mike Madrid, The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines

6.  “Sometimes people identified too strongly with the famous—it was one of the prices of notoriety, especially when so many considered you to be a hero. Batman sometimes filled much too large a hole in people’s lives.”

― Craig Shaw Gardner, The Batman Murders

7.  “Who wanted to grow up, when we had the heroes like batman and superman and we had this little tiny body to act with, like them. Alas, we all have that childish nature still in us, but it’s all about how people would think of us.”

― Neymat Khan

8.  “I wanted to kind of make this like, ‘Yeah, this is what Batman would be in the real world’. But I had forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans, that smelling, not having a girlfriend—these are actually kind of heroic! So actually, sort of, Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I meant him to be a bad example. But I have people come up to me in the street saying, “I am Rorschach! That is my story!’ And I’ll be thinking: ‘Yeah, great, can you just keep away from me, never come anywhere near me again as long as I live’?”

― Alan Moore

― Roshani Chokshi, Aru Shah and the End of Time

Batman: A bat signal.

Commissioner Gordan: Christ. He actually put a bat on it.”

― Geoff Johns, Batman: Earth One, Volume 2

28.   “Most of the things that “everybody knows” are wrong. The rest are merely unreliable.

Batman”

― Neil Gaiman, Black Orchid

29.   “The rich. You know why they’re so odd? Because they can afford to be.”

― Batman (1989)

30.    “The world has accepted hard-core fans’ argument. Batman, this children’s character who dresses up in a costume to effect the change he wishes to see in the world via face punching, is serious.

And awesome.

And definitely not gay.

And, most importantly, now and forever, badass.

This is the Batman narrative that now permeates the culture—the narrative that doesn’t like nobody touching its stuff and doesn’t want any of you homos touching it, neither.”

― Glen Weldon, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture

31.    “If you were casting the part of the evil scientist who would prove the Caped Crusader’s deadliest nemesis, you’d likely glance at the headshot of German-born psychiatrist Dr. Fredric Wertham, with his owl-like glasses and severe Prussian features, and think, “Nah, too on-the-nose.”

― Glen Weldon, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture

32.   “I am not a joke. I am not a riddle! I am not a bird or a cat or a penguin! I’m not a scarecrow or a plant or a puppet! I am not your broken friend! I am not your regretful teacher!

I AM BANE!”

― Tom King, Batman, Volume 3: I Am Bane

33.   “I couldn’t stand boy companions,” he [Jules Feiffer] wrote in his 1965 essay ” The Great Comic Book Heroes. “Robin was my own age. One need only look at him to see he could fight better, swing from a rope better, play ball better, eat better and live better…He was obviously an A student, the center of every circle, the one picked for greatness in the crowd—God, how I hate him.”

― Glen Weldon, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture

― Glen Weldon, The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture

35.    “Batman: What do you think Alfred?

Alfred: I think you’re a bad driver.

Batman: I’ve got Lucius looking into another car-

Alfred: Well you’re going to need one if you actually want to catch these blokes. Tea’s on the table behind you.”

― Geoff Johns, Batman: Earth One, Volume 2

36.    “Look into his eyes and tell yourself he’s just a man. Tell yourself he can’t know the things he says he does. He can’t know your fears. But he has Alfred. He has your friend. And his eyes… you have studied the human eye. There are six eye movements that reveal motive, then fifteen variations of each one. On everyone else you face – even the most hardened criminals – the pupils contract or expand depending on emotion. Happiness, laughter, affection. The pupils open. Fear, anger, hatred, the pupils close. But not his. His pupils stay fixed, tiny points of blackness, the eyes of someone who hates everything, everyone. Eyes that let in no light, that see through the darkness, stare into you, each pupil a tiny black pearl fixed in space. A bullet coming at you. Eyes that say he’s more than a man, eyes that say he knows you. No… you know what he is. Tell yourself the truth. He’s just a man who fell in a vat of chemical waste. He’s just a man… like you, made of bone and tissue and blood.”

― Scott Snyder, Batman, Volume 3: Death of the Family

37.    “Alfred: Are you alright?

Batman: I’m going to need a better car. Police are here. They’ll pick up the others.

Alfred: And they’ll probably be back on the streets by sunrise thanks to Harvey Dent. I know you don’t want to hear it, but if you want to make Gotham a safer place we need to rethink how we’re going to do that. You should come home now. Dinner’s gonna get cold.

Batman: Don’t tell me it’s cottage pie again.

Alfred:…I’ll order a pizza.”

42.    “A father’s love can be a terrible thing”

― Jeph Loeb

43.    “I was just so afraid…. So afraid of being seen through, of being caught, that I missed the point. I missed the most important fact of it all, which is quite simply…they want to believe in you up there…. The audience wants to forget who’s under the mask. But they don’t want to forget because of obfuscation…no, they want to forget it’s you by virtue of the passion of your performance. They want to be transported…. Transported to a world where bigger truths are at work, and anything–anything–can happen. A world where the impossible is possible. Batman can be someone like that for them, Bruce. Someone who defies every damn rule of logic that governs their lives.”

― Scott Snyder, Batman, Volume 4: Zero Year: Secret City

― Robert Pattinson

45.  “He does not provide solace from pain.

He cannot give you hope for the eternal.

He cannot comfort you for the love you lost.

God blesses your soul with grace.

Batman punches people in the face.

– Bruce Wayne”

― Tom King, Batman, Volume 8: Cold Days

46.  “You weren’t the perfect father but that’s okay because — probably nobody’s a perfect father. No family’s perfect, either. I was lucky. I was privileged. Not because of the big house and the money, but because you gave me a lot of yourself. You taught me, you showed me, you encouraged me — you never lied to me and you never demanded that I be anything I’m not. I didn’t imitate you because you insisted that I do so, but because I wanted to. Of all the men I knew, you were most worthy of imitation. Then I blamed you for letting me be who I was. Pretty dumb. You and Alfred gave me a home and you gave me what we don’t mention. The L word. You were the best family I could have had. Thanks.”
