How long has anyone been a Batman fan?

For me since i was 8 when Batman 1989 came out in theaters and saw it 5 times and had merchandise, ate the cereal, watched the 60's show on TV and had the VHS film with NES game for christmas that year plus read the comics, i became a fan in an instant.

I even saw Batman Returns when i was 11 4 times in theaters, had merchandise, ate the cereal, had the Mcdonalds cups and watched the animated show religiously on fox ever near prime time

I've been a fan since I was 2 years old. That was 17 years ago.

As a child I had tons of Batman action figures, owned all the live action movies on VHS, watched the animated series every day it was on, and dressed up in my Batman costume.

Even as a teenager I was still a Batman fan. I saw all of Nolan's movies in theaters (saw TDK on it's premiere) read the trade paperbacks like Year One, Long Halloween, etc. and played a lot of the older video games (Batman Returns and BTAS on SNES, Batman on Genesis, Batman Begins on PS2, etc.)

Now I find myself re-watching the Burton movies and the animated series (plus MotP and even Sub Zero), writing my own backstories for the characters and making Batman micro-heroes as concept art. I also love the music from Burton's films and the animated series. I listen to those quite a bit.

Probably after seeing 89' and then Returns and Forever (can't remember age). I then got into the comics afterwards reading some graphic novels from the library before starting my collection mostly at University. I found loads of individual Batman titles in Middlesbrough at this small comic book shop and kept going back every now and again.

I got about 29 individual comics down there, although there are gaps in places (especially having The Mud Pack 1,2 & 4, but not 3!) since I haven't been back since graduation. I got lucky in finding the comic adaptions of 89' and Returns, which look very weird as the movies don't translate well back down to comic form.

I collect figurines where I can find them, and keep a collection of Batman images from tv magazines and newspapers and just keep on going with it. I do occasionally get new graphic novels in but I am more of a fan of the older style Batman comics than the modern versions because they look almost too graphically polished and styled.

I got, in terms of games:

Batman Returns (SNES)
Batman Forever (SNES)
Lego Batman (PS2)

I don't usually play the SNES games much but I seriously enjoyed Lego Batman. I might wipe my game to start it again because I might have completed it too soon.

If I ever get a A3 scanner though I might post up the strangest Batman oddity I found in my comic collection, a schematic of arkham asylum. I could scan both halves and try to 'connect' it if anyone's interested.

Was a fan at least since 89 as a 5 year old. Can't remember if I was into Batman/had Batman merchandise before that.

I can't remember not being a Batman fan. My mom loves Batman, so we would always watch the movies when they came on TV. I can't even count how many times I've seen the Tim Burton Jack Nicholson as The Joker Batman movie. I've even partaken of the George Clooney Nipple Batman with Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl with Chris O'Donnell as Robin.

Since I was....5? Maybe younger. I used to dress as batman as well, I would watch the Burton movies when I could as well as the animated series. Now I play the Arkham games so much, I love them. Batman year one is one of my favorite movies. TLH is one of my favorite comic book series of all time. Batman is in my top list...cross between him and spidey at no.1 to be honest.

Mid 80s, iirc. Adam West, then of course the Keaton movie later on (which I still remember seeing at the cinema).

I loved the original Adam West series and read the comics that got releases at the local News stand. When Batman came out in 89 I dressed up as Batman (I was 9) My family was embarrassed and the locals thought I was weird but Screw Them I was Batman!
When the Animated Series came out my Mom and I watched it every Saturday. The eventual Schumaker films were terrible but the comics always remained awesome.
I'm a Marvel Zombie at heart though.
