About

Batman, created in 1939 by Bob Kane for DC Comics, is one of the most beloved and intriguing comic book superheroes ever. Batman's alter ego is the wealthy playboy Bruce Wayne. Orphaned at a young age, Bruce was raised by his butler Alfred. One of the most unique aspects of Batman is that he is a human who has no superpowers. Instead, he relies on "his own scientific knowledge, detective skills, and athletic prowess." He created his own suit, complete with a multifunctional utility belt. In some versions, Batman wears a costume that resembles tights. Batman, along with his sidekick Robin, uses his skills to practice vigilantism and fight his enemies, including Catwoman, The Joker, The Penguin, and The Riddler.
