Kevin Conroy's 10 Best Batman Moments
By DAVID COURT
I am vengeance!
The Dark Knight’s greatest fear manifests after he falls victim to the Scarecrow’s fear toxin in the “Nothing to Fear” episode of “Batman: The Animated Series.” The series has many great moments, but nothing equals Conroy’s performance as the hero conquers his fear and declares, “I am vengeance, I am the night. I am Batman!”
Sliding Bat-Doors
The 1993 “Mask of the Phantasm” sees a young Bruce Wayne teetering between a life as a masked vigilante and one with his romantic interest, only to have his heart broken. The film is arguably one of the best portrayals of Batman, and Conroy is able to capture the gravity of the circumstances that ultimately sealed Bruce’s fate.
Knightfall Protocol
After the Scarecrow reveals Batman’s identity in “Arkham Knight,” the hero initiates the Knightfall Protocol, a failsafe that destroys all traces of Batman to protect those he’s worked with. Though the scene has few words, it’s a poignant and fitting end to the series, concluding a brilliant showcase for Conroy’s range and talent.
Batman sings
In a rare opportunity to show off his other talents, Conroy delivers an impressive rendition of the 1929 classic, “Am I Blue?” in his deep, gravelly voice during an episode of “Justice League Unlimited.” His cover of the song was so popular among fans that the actor released the full version of the song on his website, among several others.
Batman of Zur-En-Arrh
During Season 2 of “The Brave and the Bold,” Batman gains superpowers after being transported to another world where he meets another version of himself: the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh. Conroy lends his voice to the alternate hero and perfectly portrays the humility forced upon him by this new visitor.
