This chapter looks at the place of the Gothic in Batman's history and current revival via the Nolan films. It examines the specificity of comic book characters, which exist in a wide variety of texts, forms and media, and focuses on the way that Batman has oscillated between light and dark versions while always returning to the Gothic as a means of commercial reanimation when the franchise seems to wane.
