1993’s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is oft-regarded as the best Batman film of all time, animated or not, with much of its veneration stemming from titular villain The Phantasm. The villain’s bone-chilling aesthetic, ominous voice and dangerous skillset made the character an indelible aspect of the movie. Notwithstanding, the Phantasm, for better or worse, is a character that hasn’t been utilized outside of the animated Batman universe — something that’s about to change in Tom King’s recently announced Batman/Catwoman series.
