Why is Batman's costume gray/blue or gray/black? Ok, I know Batman's costume has always been gray/blue, or gray/black, but why? I've just never really understood this color choice, isn't Batman meant to look threatening, his appearance is suppose to drive fear into his enemies and petty thugs. But what is so scary about gray/blue? I think it looks kinda goofy to be honest, don't get me wrong I love Batman, but why gray? I've always thought Batman's colors should be black/yellow, in which it would look very close to his costume in the Tim Burton films (main color black, with yellow around the bat insignia and yellow utility belt). Or black/gray (main color black, with gray around the bat insignia and gray utility belt). I think it would look especially better in animation than the gray/blue or gray/black threads. I mean Terry's costume is mainly black, with a red bat and it looks more threatening than Bruce's costume, and it looks great! So why is Batman's costume gray?
