Superhero Challenge- DC Hero

For today's DC hero post there was really only one option for me, the ultimate badass, the cape-wearing, crime-fighting Batman. I mean he is just an amazing character isn't he? I wanted to do so much more but time ran ahead of me so I opted for a simple manicure using Batman's trademark colours.
 
 

Batman is a fictional character, a comic book superhero created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. The character first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939), and since then has appeared primarily in publications by DC Comics. Originally referred to as "The Bat-Man" and still referred to at times as "The Batman", he is additionally known as "The Caped Crusader", "The Dark Knight",and "The World's Greatest Detective," among other titles.

In the original version of the story and the vast majority of retellings, Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, an American millionaire (later billionaire) playboy, industrialist, and philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, he swore revenge on criminals, an oath tempered with the greater ideal of justice. Wayne trains himself both physically and intellectually and dons a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime.Batman operates in the fictional American Gotham City, assisted by various supporting characters including his crime-fighting partner, Robin, his butler Alfred Pennyworth, the police commissioner Jim Gordon, and occasionally the heroine Batgirl. He fights an assortment of villains such as the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, Poison Ivy and Catwoman. Unlike most superheroes, he does not possess any superpowers; he makes use of intellect, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, physical prowess, martial arts skills, an indomitable will, fear, and intimidation in his continuous war on crime.

Here's a picture just in case you don't know what he looks like.



 
 So here we have a base of Barry M Grey and then freehand french tips in Barry M Yellow. On my accent nail I attempted to freehand the bat-logo with W7 Black. This was a semi-success.

So next week we go onto Disney! How exciting!
