I have to say I love collecting and reading the various origin stories for this character. Has anyone seen scans of Bill Finger's original Batman origin story from Batman #47? I've never seen it and would love to read it. Is it reprinted anywhere?
My all-time fav Bat Origin story is from Len Wein & John Byrne. Though there are things I disagree with in The Untold Legend of the Batman (like Joe Chill's mother being Bruce's childhood maid/nanny & Bruce being the original Robin) overall I find it really enjoyable. I've actually collected multiple versions of this story including the softback pocket book and the MPI Audio Edision version which came with an audio cassette.
There are also some great flashbacks in Batman #0 from 1994. Now I know there are more Origin stories (some of which I've read) but I'd like to give room for others to bring them up. So what are peoples' fav Batman origin stories? I'm also curious what is the current cannon origin story in the new 52?
