Batman is one of most legendary franchises in the history of pop culture. From the original show starring Adam West, to the comics and now to the silver screen, Batman has been part of America since 1939. Sports have been part of America for much longer, so why not mix the two together? It turned out pretty great.

Buck Showalter: Commissioner Gordon

Buck Showalter: Commissioner Gordon

Buck Showalter Commissioner Gordon

Like Commissioner Gordon, Buck Showalter runs a tight ship, he’s a good manager of the talent and resources around him and he can carry the crew when needed. The biggest thing both men have in common: A secret weapon upon which they can call in dire situations.

Scottie Pippen: Robin

Scottie Pippen: Robin

Scottie Pippen Robin

This one is simple because Robin and Scottie Pippen are both the same thing: The best freakin’ sidekick ever. Not only that, but they are both underrated and could hold their own alone if need be. So essentially, they were mini heroes who were overshadowed by their more popular partners, Batman and Michael Jordan.

Richie Incognito: Bane

Richie Incognito: Bane

Richie Incognito Bane

Both of these guys are the biggest bullies in their respective domains and neither shows remorse for his actions. When you’re that big and strong, nobody messes with you, but you can mess with everyone else and pretty much do whatever you want.

Warren Sapp: The Joker

Warren Sapp The Joker

Warren Sapp: The Joker

Warren Sapp The Joker

Since his retirement, Warren Sapp has been in the news for all the wrong reasons and always seems to be laughing about those situations, which aren’t funny. That’s very similar to the Joker, who is always up to no good and evidently thinks it’s hilarious.

Hope Solo: Catwoman

Hope-Solo-Catwoman

Hope Solo: Catwoman

Hope-Solo-Catwoman

Like Catwoman, Hope Solo can’t seem to decide whether to be good or bad, but she’s really good looking and really good at what she does, whether it’s kicking butt on the soccer field or beating up family members off it.

Derek Jeter: Batman

Derek Jeter: Batman

Derek Jeter Batman

Derek Jeter fits the bill of the Dark Knight perfectly; he’s loaded, loves the ladies and is a hero who isn’t respected by many because of the way he did things – in this case, he played for the Yankees. Like Batman, Jeter leads a mysterious private life that includes a lot of adventures that cost more than the average man could afford.

Lance Armstrong: Two-Face

Lance Armstrong Two-Face

Lance Armstrong: Two-Face

Lance Armstrong Two-Face

On the one hand, Armstrong wants to be this symbol for cancer survivors and the battle against the lethal disease by the human race. But on the other hand, he deceived everyone and can’t help but fuel that wicked side, even once saying he would have doped again if he had it do over.

Nick Saban: Scarecrow

Nick Saban Scarecrow

Nick Saban: Scarecrow

Nick Saban Scarecrow

Scarecrow exploits the fear of others to his advantage and is scary good at it…literally. Nick Saban also uses his authority to strike fear into pretty much everyone and get his way. With all his championship rings, you can’t argue that it works, even if everyone thinks he’s truly evil.

Phil Jackson: Alfred

Phil Jackson Alfred

Phil Jackson: Alfred

Phil Jackson Alfred

Alfred are Phil Jackson are both really smart and kind of the driving force behind the success of the heroes, but not afraid to say something extremely bold if necessary. Alfred spoke up and said what nobody wanted to hear when needed while Jackson wasn’t afraid to manipulate the officiating with public statements.

Brett Favre: Mr. Freeze

Brett Favre Mr. Freeze

Brett Favre: Mr. Freeze

Brett Favre Mr. Freeze

For no good reason, Brett Favre wanted revenge on the Packers so bad he went to extreme lengths to get it, but ultimately still looked like the fool. While a dead wife is definitely reason to be upset, Mr. Freeze wanted revenge on those who really didn’t do anything wrong. Easy match.

Chris Kluwe: The Riddler

Chris Kluwe The Riddler

Chris Kluwe: The Riddler

Chris Kluwe The Riddler

Like the Riddler, Chris Kluwe is extremely intelligent and uses that to his advantage, especially when in quarrels with his peers. Check out his Twitter history and you’ll see when others have challenged him intellectually, he has completely dominated them while making them look foolish with tough questions. Sound familiar, Riddler fans?

Alex Rodriguez: Penguin

Alex Rodriguez Penguin

Alex Rodriguez: Penguin

Alex Rodriguez Penguin

These guys have weird things in common; they’re extremely deceitful, yet graceful and morbidly classy at the same time, and they use the gullibility of others to their advantage. In short, they lie a lot and do some despicable things but always get away with it.
