NPR Summary

Batman's biggest secret isn't Bruce Wayne — it's his forgotten co-creator, Bill Finger. Batman is usually credited to Bob Kane, who'd been commissioned by DC Comics to come up with a hit superhero. But Kane approached Finger for help — and it was Bill Finger who invented everything from Gotham City to Batman's tragic backstory. But he never got the credit — until recently. Illustrations by Ty Templeton.
