The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. No matter how you refer to Batman, after 75 years of existence, he has become an important part of our cultural fabric. The “Bat-Man” fist appeared in Detective Comics #27 back in May, 1939. He was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and is now very much an icon in our society.
Bruce Wayne’s Gotham City foes have also gained some major street cred over the years; The Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Bane, and the list goes on and on.
IGN named Batman #2 in the top 100 comic book heroes of all time, right behind none other than his DC Comics counterpart, good ‘ol Superman.
Whether you’re a fan of the 1960’s campy Adam West Batman, or the slightly darker Tim Burton 1989 Batman, each version has something for everybody. Except maybe the George Clooney Batman from 1997’s disastrous Batman and Robin movie. That was just plain awful.
