Got to go with a classic Neal Adams cover of Batman 251.

Do you have the textless version?

I've been wondering why there were no Batman games in the early 80s for Atari 2600, Colecovision, Intellivision, etc. Spiderman and Superman got games.

I was thinking about Batman on 2600, and I think it would be really fun to hack Keystone Kapers into a Batman game. Bump it up from 4K to 8K and add the Batman TV Show music. Every couple stages, you could change the graphic of the "crook" into Joker, then Riddler, then Penguin each with his own them of obstacles in the levels. Instead of picking up a suitcase, you could pick up a Riddler Question Mark, for example. Or a Penguin Umbrella. Or a Joker player card (or Laughing Fish). But basically the game would stay the same. When you nab the villain, replace Batman and the Villain with a "POW!" graphic.
But even a straight hack, keeping its memory at 4K, would be pretty cool. Change all the colors, add the music ditty, change the sprites. I would do it myself, but to be honest I have never tried to hack a 2600 game so I don't know what tools you hackers use. Thoughts?
EDIT - oh man... Moon Control could be hacked graphically to use the Batmobile and Batman-themed enemies too. Must also add the 60's Batman theme somewhere, even if just at end of levels.

Wow, what a coincidence.
