• A Little History Lesson: Bob Kane is known as Batman’s creator. But is the Batman that you know wearing a bright red costume, stiff black bat wings attached to his arms, and a black domino (Robin style) mask? That was the original Batman image that Bob Kane created. After creating the character, Kane contacted Bill Finger and showed him the sketch of Batman. Finger felt the character looked too much like Superman, suggested some changes and created the Batman that we know today. Finger also wrote some of the early Batman stories, gave him the “Bruce Wayne” name, named Robin and Gotham City, and contributed to the creation of the Cat-Woman, Penguin, Riddler, Two-Face and Clay-Face.
