Batman is a fictional character, a comic book superhero created
by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. The character first
appeared in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939), and since then has
appeared primarily in publications by DC Comics. Originally
referred to as "The Bat-Man" and still referred to at times as
"The Batman", he is additionally known as "The Caped Crusader",
"The Dark Knight", and "The World's Greatest Detective," among
In the original version of the story and the vast majority of
retellings, Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, an American
millionaire (later billionaire) playboy, industrialist, and
philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a
child, he swore revenge on criminals, an oath tempered with the
greater ideal of justice. Wayne trains himself both physically
and intellectually and dons a bat-themed costume in order to
fight crime. Batman operates in the fictional American Gotham
City, assisted by various supporting characters including his
crime-fighting partner, Robin, his butler Alfred Pennyworth, the
police commissioner Jim Gordon, and occasionally the heroine
Batgirl. He fights an assortment of villains such as the Joker,
the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, Poison Ivy and Cat woman.
Unlike most superheroes, he does not possess any superpowers; he
makes use of intellect, detective skills, science and technology,
wealth, physical prowess, martial arts skills, an indomitable
will, fear, and intimidation in his continuous war on crime.
Batman became a very popular character soon after his
introduction and gained his own comic book title, Batman, in
1940. As the decades wore on, differing interpretations of the
character emerged. The late 1960s Batman television series used a
camp aesthetic which continued to be associated with the
character for years after the show ended. Various creators worked
to return the character to his dark roots, culminating in the
1986 miniseries The Dark Knight Returns, by Frank Miller, while
the successes of Tim Burton's 1989 film Batman and Christopher
Nolan's 2005 reboot Batman Begins also helped to reignite popular
interest in the character. A cultural icon, Batman has been
licensed and adapted into a variety of media, from radio to
television and film, and appears on a variety of merchandise sold
all over the world such as toys and video games. The character
has also intrigued psychiatrists with many trying to understand
the character's psyche and his true ego in society. In May 2011,
Batman placed second on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All
Time, after Superman. Empire magazine also listed him second in
their 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters of All Time.
