Where to See Him: Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman Beyond, Return of the Joker, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited

Across decades of animation, Conroy has played every single side of the World’s Greatest Detective—whether it be crusader, hero, the symbol, the dispatcher of vengeance, or even the investigator—and done in a way that’s often viewed as defining take on the character. Conroy’s (excellent) voice acting has resulted in a nuanced take on both Batman and Bruce Wayne, understanding that one couldn’t truly exist without another. While Conroy’s dual-act still grapples with the same depth of pain, he’s firmly the hero—acting with good intentions to protect Gotham and its citizens. Throughout his nearly 30-year career, he’s been able to dive deep into the emotionality—and, most critically, the humanity—of Batman, shaping layer after layer of this beloved character. With voice alone, Conroy ensures Batman lives on in the imagination of millions of Batman fans. “I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman,” he once famously declared. That statement remains unequivocally correct.
