Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of BatmanNPR coverage of Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman by Marc Tyler Nobleman and Ty Templeton. News, author interviews, critics' picks and more.
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.
