Batman Using Guns

Sure, Batman hates guns in The Dark Knight Returns, but he also uses them at every opportunity. We've already seen him wield a weapon to free a child hostage; now let's take a look at some of the graphic novel's finer gun-wielding moments.
On the roof with Two Face:
 Against the Mutants in the Batmobile:
"Arrested" by Commissioner Yindel while fleeing the Joker:
 Facing off with Superman:
Why does Batman use guns so much? Simply put, it looks cool. Batman without a gun is noble. With a gun, he's just badass.


  1. You don't know what the fuck you are talking about. Batman with a gun is not badass. Batman with a gun isn't Batman. It's a guy in a bat suit fighting the same style as the criminals. Batman does not fight fire with fire. He is superior to the criminals he faces. Would you give a Jedi a gun?

  2. And here I thought I'd have to publish 150 posts before the real expert on Batman showed up.

    1. the guy is right. batman with a gun has always seemed as a low

    2. @Unknown, read my post on Year Two for another example.
