and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (1939),
originally named the "Bat-Man", the character is also referred to
by such epithets as the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight
and the World's Greatest Detective

Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, a wealthy American playboy,
philanthropist and owner of Wayne Enterprises,
after witnessing the murder of his parents Dr. Thomas Wayne
and Martha Wayne as a child, he swore vengeance against criminals,
an oath tempered by a sense of justice,
Bruce Wayne trains himself physically and intellectually
and crafts a bat-inspired persona to fight crime

Batman operates in the fictional Gotham City
with the assistance from various supporting characters
including his butler Alfred, police commissioner Gordon
and vigilante allies such as Robin,

martial arts abilities, detective skills, science and technology,
vast wealth, intimidation, and indomitable will,

a large assortment of villains make up Batman's rogues gallery,
including his archenemy, the Joker

the character became popular soon after his introduction in 1939
and gained his own comic book title, Batman, the following year,
as the decades went on, differing interpretations of the character emerged,
the late 1960s Batman television series used a camp aesthetic
which continued to be associated with the character for years after the show ended,
various creators worked to return the character to his dark roots,
culminating in 1986 with the Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller,
the success of Warner Bros.' live-action Batman feature films
have helped maintain the character's prominence in mainstream culture,

and is among the most identifiable comic book characters,
Batman has been licensed and adapted into a variety of media,
from radio to television and film, and appears on various merchandise
sold around the world, such as toys and video games,
