Man-Bat is one of my favorite Batman villains. Villain is probably the wrong word though, as he is often not in control of his own actions when pitted against the caped crusader. I like tales featuring the more clear headed, heroic Man-Bat as well. I still think there is a great Batman movie to be had using Dr. Hugo Strange and pulling in Man-Bat and Killer Croc in via his monster men experiments. Alas, that film is only in my fevered imagination, so I will have to make do with Spider-Man battling the Lizard in a few weeks. That looks to be fun, but I wish the Lizard looked closer to his comic counterpart. As Man-Bat illustrates - monsters are cool, but monsters wearing pants are cooler!
