One of the most popular comics has been Batman. He started as part of a comic book and then he was taken to the screen in a show for ABC around 1965 and the first episode of Batman aired on January 12, 1966. Bringing Batman to the TV screen was the idea of William Dozier. He used to read the comic book to get an idea of the character and developed some of the basic concepts that made the show such a success. This helped the show to appeal to an adult audience as well as children and it worked really well.
Years later Batman was brought to the big screen in movies such as Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), and Batman and Robin (1997).
The story of Bruce Wayne, known as Batman, is about a teenager who was traumatized by witnessing his parent's murder and vowed to avenge their deaths by bringing the criminals to justice. Bruce Wayne used his vast fortune to study criminology, to train his body to athletic perfection, and to acquire high tech vehicles and weapons to fight crime in his hometown of Gotham. One night Bruce was startled by a bat outside his window and decided to dress himself as a 'bat man' to strike fear in the 'cowardly and superstitious' hearts of criminals. From that moment Bruce Wayne became 'Batman' in his altered state.
