"Every Batman story is marked with the words "Batman created by Bob Kane." But that isn't the whole truth. A struggling writer named Bill Finger was involved from the beginning.

It was only after his death that fans went to bat for Bill, calling for acknowledgment that he was co-creator of Batman."
