If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week the bats are out of the belfry as we look at five of Batman’s greatest team-ups!

Batman is undeniably one of the most popular comic characters, heck, one of the most popular characters in all of pop culture period. And since the guy is so darn popular, it’s no surprise that he’s had an adventure with just about everybody. But this week, we’re looking for those team-ups that are bigger, bolder, or weirder than your everyday superhero hangouts. And before anyone even says it, sorry, no sidekicks.

No, this episode focuses on the stars outside the Bat-family that needed a little help to put themselves over, and big heroes that made for dream tag-teams that just wouldn't be possible today. When Batman comes calling, turns out everyone wants to be there to offers some help. Mostly anyway. Sometimes you find that partner that you just can't stand and want to punch in the face. Still makes for a compelling team-up though.
