Great, this trope's starting to decay because of the Badass Glare redirect I've added, isn't it?

While there is nothing wrong with the current page image, I couldn't help but think of a possible better one. In the opening credits of Batman: The Animated Series, Batman gives two bank robbers a fantastic death glare. If someone were able to find and upload a picture of it, it would possibly be better than the current picture, as I believe this is a trope that would be better be shown by a cartoon rather than a Live-Action photograph, as a cartoon Death Glare is exaggerated, making it a much clearer example of this trope. What does anyone else think?

I know the scene you mean, but I don't think it's really a death glare. It's Batman standing there with his usual (in that show) impassiveness, saying without words "You know who I am. You know what's about to happen." While it has the EFFECT of one, it's not exactly the same thing, I believe.

If I may ask whoever is responsible, what was wrong with the original picture (Adama from Battlestar Galactica, visible on the image links)? That photo sent a genuine chill down my spine when I first saw it. The "death glare" in the current image is wordy, has the word "GLARE" written right next to it (which leads me to suggest ShowDontTell) and just doesn't feel as elegant as the original, as well as losing much of its poignancy. As well, the page quote fitted the original almost perfectly as a caption. Replacing it was a step down, in my opinion.

Read through this thread — it's three pages about how good/bad the old one was and choosing a new one.
