Long Live the Bat

Batman Fandom is a collaborative encyclopedia for everything related to Batman -- including the comics, video games, television shows, movies, toys, and books.

Created by writer Bill Finger and artist Bob Kane, Batman first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (1939) and is the secret identity of Bruce Wayne, who, after witnessing the murder of his parents as a child, trains himself to physical and intellectual perfection and dons a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime.

The classic iteration of the character operates in the Batcave, located beneath Wayne Manor, and is assisted by various other allies, referred to as the Batman Family. The character would go on to become one of the most popular characters from DC Comics, and a cultural icon.

Characters commonly associated with Batman have become the protagonists of their own comics, movies, television series, and other media, such as the Joker, Robin, Catwoman, Batgirl, and Batwoman.
