With Batman's gallery of foes being as iconic and adaptable as it is, it's not exactly rare to see an artist take a shot at doing their own interpretation of characters like the Joker and Two-Face. It is, however, a pretty uncommon treat to see them done as well, and with as much thought, as artist M.S. Corley has put into his take the Dark Knight's deadliest foes.
To be honest, the best work that Corley has done with these is in the accessorizing. That might sound weird, but the idea of the Joker wearing a straitjacket as a jaunty cloak, putting the Scarecrow in a Plague Doctor mask or giving Mr. Freeze his wife's scarf to add a touch of humanity is a really cool idea. Check 'em out, along with a few of Corley's notes, below!
I think it's been well established over the years here at ComicsAlliance that the purest and most beautiful way to express your love for another person is by saying it with Batman -- and apparently, we're not the only ones who think so.

Check out a few of our favorites below!
Michael Ansara passed away earlier this week. Over a career that spanned 55 years, the actor kept busy. He played Cochise on the 1950s television series Broken Arrow, Kane on Buck Rogers In The 25th Century, and to Star Trek fans he'll always be the Klingon Commander Kang, a character he portrayed on three different Star Trek TV series.
But to most of you who follow this site, and all of us here at ComicsAlliance, Ansara will forever be the man who gave voice to Mr. Freeze, possibly the most tragic and memorable villain on Batman: The Animated Series.
If you aren't familiar with Kris Anka by now, you should be. A talented comic artist, he may currently be best known for his comic book fashion sense, specifically the costume redesigns he did for the recently relaunched Uncanny X-Force -- including the return of Mohawk Storm. Basical
I kind of lied to you in that headline. I don't care. This video takes the hilariously horrible characterization of Mr. Freeze as played by Arnold Schwarzenegger and reframes the story of Batman & Robin as an infectiously catchy and foul-mouthed showtune. Written and performed by Jon Kaplan and Al Ka
Although they didn't appear on camera, a number of Batman's most prominent rogues made indirect cameos in the original Batman: Arkham Asylum via custom memorabilia or jail cells caught in the game's brooding backgrounds. Evil du
No matter where you are this Christmas, we here at ComicsAlliance hope that you're spending some time with the people you love most, because that's what the holidays are really about. And for me, that means spending some time with Batman.
