Detective Comics #668, by Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan
Probably the most iconic of all 90's costumes, and the one that had the most issues, Jean Paul Valley's Batman armor was created originally to take down Bane (will it make a grand appearance in Dark Knight Rises?). It had a bat computer in the helmet, shot mini bat discs from the wrists, and also had a super duper flashlight built into the chest. The claws on the hands seem like they would be a real burden to do any kind of real detective work.
