18 Best Batman Quotes That Will Unleash the Hero In You

The Dark Knight of the city of Gotham is unquestionably one of the most valorous and dauntless superheroes to have  ever been created. Brought to life by the DC Universe, The Batman franchise is known to be one the greatest franchises in the entertainment industry with all the great comics, movies and paraphernalia. 

The story of the mysterious Caped Crusader is widely renowned for the outstanding script, clear-cut characters, riveting plots and needless to say, the memorable quotable lines of dialogue. 

The owner of Wayne Enterprise and the man behind the mask, Bruce Wayne, is driven to seek vengeance for his parents who were killed by criminals when he was only a child. Although he’s known as a superhero, Batman doesn’t have any actual superpowers. Instead, he depends on his physical and mental prowess, martial arts and his passion for justice to save the city of Gotham from the myriad criminals. 

You can’t expect nothing less than sheer greatness from someone who fights for justice, especially in a city as dark and corrupted as Gotham. Batman certainly has mastered all the aspects of being a true hero; one that the city doesn’t need but deserves. Batman himself isn’t a man of many words; but when he does speak, it’s almost as if everything he says is quotable.
