Since his first appearance, Batman has built up a formidable array of ‘family’ and allies as he fights crime in the troubled streets of Gotham City.

Some – such as Catwoman and Jason Todd – tread a delicate path between heroic acts and villainy. Others – such as Robin and Batgirl – have gone on to become fully fledged members of the Batman Family, fighting both alone and alongside the Dark Knight against the city’s crazed Super-Villains
