It's Batman's 75th anniversary and we all -- okay, most of us -- love seeing Bruce Wayne as the Dark Knight, but every now and then, Wayne can't wear the cowl and someone else needs to step into his intimidating boots. Whether it's suffering a major injury, "dying" or getting too old for crime fighting, there have been multiple times where other characters have assumed the mantle and showed the world what their version of the Caped Crusader is like.

Six options immediately come to mind: Jean-Paul Valley, Jason Todd, Dick Grayson, Damian Wayne, Tim Drake, and Terry McGinnis. Some obviously had much more time to wear cowl than others did, but each brought different changes to the iconic costume and revealed how they act as the famous character. This week, we want to know which Batman replacement is your favorite!

Do you want to re-read their appearances as Batman or give this some extra thought before voting? Well, there's no need to rush because the poll will stay open until Thursday morning (ET). That's more than enough time to think this through and pick a character, isn't it?

After you've sided with one of these choices, go on and tell the world why you think they're the coolest Batman replacement. Is it because of changes to the attire? The different personality and approach they bring to the table? All of the above? Get your elaboration on in the comments section and, if your post is solid enough, there's a chance we'll feature it in the results article. So, who will it be, Viners?
