With the release of Batman Earth One Vol: 3, figured this would be a great time to ask what everyone thinks is the best story of Batman's origin.

I think Batman's best origin is the one written by Bill Finger since it is from the original run by the original creator Bill Finger, but, as a story, what do you guys think?

Zero Year hit the spot for me. explains why Bruce actually meddles in public appearances, how/why he can't allow himself to experience a personal life, great art, GREAT ART, and not to mention it made the Riddler a very dangerous villain which other writers don't really do

@itouchedtheboat: Thanks! What reason did it establish for why Bruce meddles in public appearances and how/why he can't allow himself to experience a personal life?

I don't remember.

@haikyuu444: No worries. It's a difficult question. I was about to vote Batman Begins but the "I won't kill you but I don't have to save you" made it difficult to vote as the best.

I think Gotham is the best live-action Bruce Wayne to date, but because he encounters so many of his would-be Rogues so early, I can't say it's the best origin. And while Mask of the Phantasm still has an argument for best animated DC movie (upper echelon at least), Bruce's metamorphosis into Batman plays a huge backseat to his relationship with Andrea (not complaining about it, but it eliminates in from Best Origin contention imo). Batman Begins was a great origin for Bruce, but I kinda don't like the role Rachel played in it. I think I'm gonna go with Year One.
