Batman

 BX6U   (DC, 1940-2011)

and 1993 DC Comics, Inc.

Since his debut in Detective Comics #27, Batman has become one of the best-known comic heroes of all time. Created by the legendary Bob Kane, Batman is one of the rare characters who have transcended comics to become cultural icons. Batman (a.k.a. Bruce Wayne) protects the citizens of Gotham City from a never-ending array of criminals. Over the years, his foes have included such famous villains as Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, and countless others.

Where once he was a fairly straightforward super-hero (complete with Robin, the boy sidekick), Batman has been transformed over time into an increasingly complex character. Now he is the Dark Knight, an avenger of evil who also must face up to the darkness within his own soul.
