The History of Batman Using Guns

You might think that Batman never uses guns (in the same way you might think Green Arrow never uses guns), but you would be wrong in both cases.

The first case is when Batman uses a gun in Detective #32, during which he shoots vampires with silver bullets.

And you might think, wait, that was a long time ago. Certainly things have changed since then, right? But at you will see below in comics spanning the decades, the quality of the drawings may have improved but Batman is still using guns when he feels like it.

Basically there is no consistency or rule that Batman does not and cannot use guns. The examples above are just samples compared to the hundreds of examples of Batman using guns throughout the decades.

Thus when you see Batman using a special anti-alien gun in the Batman Vs Superman trailers, it really is nothing new by Batman's standards. Batman has been using guns from the beginning, continues to use them regularly, and relies on them when he feels there is no other option.

Although seriously, why not use kryptonite arrowsheads instead of kryptonite bullets. Batman with a bow... now we're talking!
