Comic Book detective is Batman, but I also think L is a superior detective. Though, that's because too many comic book writers make him less a detective and more of a brawler.
@Riezner
I have to say that I was actually shocked that no one had made a Detective concept page before I was a member. I made this on both Comic Vine and Anime Vice.
