Batman

Created by Bob Kane & Bill Finger as a vigilante detective in 1939, Batman reigned as a favorite of comic book fans throughout its mid-century publishing heyday.  The character Batman Logoexploded as a pop culture phenomenon in 1966, thanks to the success of ABC TV's campy Adam West vehicle.  Reimagined 20 years later by Frank Miller in The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, the Caped Crusader's unique blend of mystique and heroism has helped shaped the modern comic medium.  On the silver screen, Batman has thrilled moviegoers in big-budget efforts by Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan with actors such as Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale all donning the cowl & cape.
