Batman Fan Tributes

“Kevin Conroy was the voice of multiple generations of Batman fans. Across multiple mediums, series and stories, he inspired so many. I genuinely cannot believe this just happened,” shared one.

“Your Batman and Naruto are the two fictional characters that have really carved and shaped out my personality and the way I think into an inspired but always brooding youth. There will never be a better Batman for me. Thank you, Kevin Conroy,” another fan shared. 

Kevin Smith stated, “I lost a hero today. We all did. The one true Batman – the voice I'll always hear in my head whenever I read or write a Batman comic book – has passed. I'll miss you forever, @RealKevinConroy. Thanks for defining the Dark Knight with your powerful pipes and for being a friend.”

One user stated, “More important than the voice of Batman everyone hears in their head, Kevin Conroy was a trailblazer for the queer voice-acting community. He was a giant—what a gift and what a loss.”

Eric Italiano shared, “Kevin Conroy passing away is devastating. His iteration of Batman is the first character I ever loved and set me on the life path I'm currently on. When discussing the all-time pantheon Batman actors, his name will forever deserve to be mentioned near the top. Rest In Peace.”

Finally, someone said, “His Batman was a part of my family. His talent and care got me through the worst of times. Thank you, Kevin, for saving lives and showing me that we can turn pain into hope. R.I.P.”
