The first issue of Batman, published in the spring of 1940, created by Bob Kane.

This is the first comic book to feature Batman and Robin, “the boy wonder.” A much darker character than Superman, Batman becomes a hero because of the deaths of his parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne. Although he does not possess superhuman physical powers, he is able to fight crime through his detective work and through the gadgets funded by his alter ego, Bruce Wayne.
