Batman

Synopsis: Batman was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and debuted in the 27th issue of DC Comics Detective Comics on March 30, 1939. Batman is the superhero alias of billionaire Bruce Wayne, an American playboy, philanthropist, and industrialist who resides in Gotham City. Batman's origin story features him swearing vengeance against criminals after witnessing the murder of his parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne. He trains and pushes himself to the limit both physically and intellecutally and creates a bat-inspired persona to monitor the streets of Gotham at night.

Kane, Finger, and other creators accompanied Batman with supporting characters, including his sidekick Robin; allies Alfred Pennyworth, James Gordon, and Catwoman; and foes such as the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, and his archenemy, the Joker.

One of the most iconic characters in popular culture, Batman has been listed among the greatest comic book superheroes and fictional characters ever created. He is one of the most commercially successful superheroes, and his likeness has been licensed and featured in various media and merchandise sold around the world including toy lines such as Lego Batman and video games like the Batman: Arkham series. Batman has been adapted in live-action and animated incarnations, including the 1960s Batman television series played by Adam West and in films by Michael Keaton in Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), and The Flash (2022), Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005–2012), Ben Affleck in the DC Extended Universe films Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League (2016–present), and Robert Pattinson in The Batman (2022). Kevin Conroy, Jason O'Mara, and Will Arnett, among others, have lent their voice to the character as well.
