Quick Reference

An American cartoon character, by day the millionaire socialite Bruce Wayne but at night a cloaked and masked figure, the Caped Crusader, fighting crime in Gotham City (New York), often assisted by Robin the Boy Wonder. First appearing in 1939 in a comic strip by artist Bob Kane (1916– ) and writer Bill Finger (1917–74), Batman has since featured in a popular 1960s TV series and two major films (1989 and 1992).
