The Bat-Signal has been an important part of Batman’s legacy over the years, but which iteration of it stands out as the very best?

Gotham City may strike fear in the hearts of its many residents because of the criminal element, but there is one thing that the baddies themselves fear more than anything: Looking up and seeing the Bat-Signal in the sky.

The Bat-Signal serves many purposes. It’s a handy tool that Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon uses to call on the Batman whenever he needs assistance, it’s an equally handy tool for the Caped Crusader himself to know when he’s needed, and it’s a warning to the criminals of Gotham; a reminder that he’s out there, and he’s coming for them.

Like The Dark Knight himself, the Bat-Signal has also jumped over to both the big and small screens over the past century, appearing in multiple Batman adaptations. But which ones truly captured the grandeur of the signal, and which ones didn’t quite shine as bright?

Let’s look back at all of the Bat-Signals to appear on film and television and rank them from worst to best. Which one will reign supreme?
