7. The Brave and the Bold

Batman's animated journey decided to dive back into the nostalgia when Batman: The Brave and the Bold premiered on screens in 2008. While all recent animated shows had featured modern versions of The Dark Knight, this one took us back to the wondrous world of the 1960s with fun, campy, and outlandish adventures that felt like they would have been at home in the classic comic books of years-gone-by.

That extended to the Batsuit, too, which had cast out the dark colors of recent years and gone back to the beloved blue. It still featured a grey bodysuit, as well as the yellow emblem and utility belt, but the cape and cowl was blue, along with the gloves, boots and, for lack of a better term, external underwear. Yep, suddenly it felt like we were watching the classic Saturday morning cartoons of yesteryear all of over again.

The Brave and the Bold made a few of its own modifications to the look. For a start, the face area of the cowl was black, with certain features (such as the eybrows) drawn onto it. It also had its own unique variation of the Batman symbol inside the yellow chestplate, a more belt-like design for the utility belt, and a more Superman-like design for the upper-portion of the cape (particularly how it connected to the suit).

It was a welcome update to a classic look that is now looked back upon as fondly as the Batsuit that inspired it.
