  • Author battles to unmask Batman's secret co-creator

    www.today.com —

    Everybody knows Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne. But few have heard of the writer who came up with that name, as well as many of the most familiar facets of the Bat-mythos, including the Batmobile, Gotham City and the character's tragic origin.

    Marc Tyler Nobleman is out to change that. In his book "Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman," he argues that even though artist Bob Kane has received sole official credit for creating Batman since the character debuted in 1939, a writer named Bill Finger carved most of the legend we know today.
