He may be the hero Gotham deserves, but he's not the one you need right now.

Such is the message in a new recruitment video from the Fort Worth Police Department, who have enlisted Batman's help.

Batman looks like a two-faced joker in police recruitment video
We got our first look at Batman and his sidekick Robin in 1943 with Lewis Wilson as Batman and Douglas Croft as Robin. Their ensembles, made out of cloth, had some of the key features we still see today -- the symbol, the pointed ear mask, the belt and a brief-like bottom paired with a cape.

In 1966, the cloth ensembles were still popular, but they got a slightly sexier upgrade with the influence of spandex. Burt Ward as Robin and Adam West as Batman were outfitted in stretchier and tighter-fitting versions of the classic. Batman's mask also got retrofitted with a plastic-style vs. the cloth. Unfortunately, Robin at this time was still running around barely clothed. (1966)
By 1989, Batman had made some serious improvements with Michael Keaton taking over the role as the caped crusader. Keaton was outfitted with a harder shell-like costume, a thick leather-like cape and shinier hardware for a belt and symbol. His mask was also of a tougher quality. Also upgraded? His ride. Batman nixed running around in favor of racing around in the Batmobile. MICHAEL KEATON BATMAN (1989)

In 1995, Val Kilmer and Chris O'Donnell suited up for "Batman Forever" with Kilmer at the bat and O'Donnell as his trusty sidekick. Both men's looks were totally different with a much more muscular style with sculpted suits. The suits caught some flack for showcasing nipples and a very defined nether-region with the belt serving as almost a garter. That being said, Batman had just entered the realm of sexy. 

Now we can all take a closer look at those nipples. In 1997's "Batman and Robin," George Clooney showed off Batman's chiseled side with his suit, which really was fairly similar to Kilmer's. The major difference in the suit is actually in the mask, with Clooney's showing off more of his jawline and bright white contacts.

The batsuit got another sweeping upgrade when Christian Bale flew into the role for "Batman Begins." Bale reportedly thought Kilmer's garb was uncomfortable so he asked for a new look, which took on a gunmetal-like quality that was less about the chiseled muscle lines and more about a military armor. It was a big hit. Another major change was the mask, which further concealed Batman's identity with a different cheekbone structure and more narrow ears.

Batman (aka Ben Affleck) is hiding on the left side of this photo, but you can already tell his batsuit got a makeover for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The mask, which has much smaller ears than previous bats, is one major change. Also, his look almost appears to be two-toned with two different types of plating across the breast.

But things just don't go as planned as the Dark Knight only succeeds in getting on his partner's nerves.

Batman is heard complaining about the cop's squad car, saying "it sucks" in comparison to his Batmobile. He also does an irritating rendition of the Batman theme song and brags about dating models.

In addition, the would-be hero critiques the department's mode of communication – saying his city utilizes a giant signal to get his attention.

Eventually, the cop gets so fed up with the vile vigilante that he throws him out of the car and proceeds to go about his day. Holy hitchhiker, Batman.
