Batman may not have super powers, but he does have myriad abilities, including that he sings. Frank Sinatra has a great successor.
Justice League Unlimited was an animation that left us with great moments, including a scene where Batman sings, and he doesn’t sing badly at all.
The mentioned fact is taken up from the chapter “This Little Pig”, the fifth of the first season of Justice League Unlimited, originally broadcast on August 28, 2004.

In this one, we see that Circe has escaped from her prison and when confronted by Batman and Wonder Woman, the evil goddess turns Diana into a little pig. Given this, Batman turns to Zatanna for help. Diana the pig escapes and ends up on a trail where she almost lost her life. Meanwhile, Batman and Zatanna undertake an exhausting search for Circe until, thanks to information from Medusa, they learn that one of Circe’s motivations is to outdo the snooty mermaids who claim they sing better than her, so she seeks to appear in the Mykonos Amphitheatre.
Finding her and knowing that they will not be able to defeat her, Batman reminds the goddess that magic has a price, and asks how much he must pay for Diana to be freed. Circe tells him that she wants something incredibly precious in exchange for Batman, something that is hidden and that she can never get back when she is gone. Something that breaks the soul. He pays the price and reveals what a great singer he is by performing “Am I Blue?”, moving the audience, including Zatanna and Circe.
Enjoy here the scene where Batman sings:
A couple of extra tips
The episode is currently available on HBO Max. Also, the voice of Batman in the English original is from the huge Kevin Conroy, who proves to be an excellent singer. For its part, for the dubbed version we hear the voice, also excellent, of the Venezuelan actor Framk Maneiro.
Finally, perhaps Justice League Unlimited was the series that best explored the flirtation between Batman and Wonder Woman, and this episode is one of the best in that regard.
