Golden Age of Comics



Batman

Batman appeared for the first time in the May 1939 issue of Detective Comics. He was created by 24-year-old artist Bob Kane and 25-year-old writer Bill Finger. Batman became a very popular character soon after his introduction and gained his own comic book title in 1940. Batman continued to star in Detective Comics and starting in the fall of 1940, Batman regularly appeared in World's Finest Comics.

Batman's kid sidekick Robin was introduced in Detective Comics #38 (April 1940). The first issue of the solo spin-off series Batman introduced the Joker and Catwoman.

These original stories established: Batman's secret identity as Bruce Wayne, an American millionaire, 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; unlike most superheroes, he does not possess any superpowers.
