Monday Trending Topics: Batman Recovered

This gets lost a little bit in the era of frequent mini-series, but first-issue covers of (what eventually become) key series often become iconic images.  Action 1, Batman 1, Superman 1, Wonder Woman 1, classic covers one and all that defined what made comic covers great for decades to follow.  Series from more recent eras have had their iconic beginnings as well.  Giant-Size X-Men 1, Perez Wonder Woman 1, Lee/Claremont X-Men 1, McFarlane Spider-Man 1, and others.  Years (or decades, or generations…) from now, which of the new 52 covers will be best remembered?
