Batman is a fictional super hero character created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane. The first appearance of this character can be traced back to 1939 Detective comic’s 27th edition. Bruce Wayne, who is real life of the comic series, is a multi billionaire business tycoon in the city of Gotham. The tragic murder of his parents during his childhood leaves a sharp retaliation against crime and criminals since his early childhood. He trains himself both physically and mentally and devices “The Bat theme” which is used as a disguise to fight the criminal world. He is assisted by his butler Alfred Pennyworth, Robin – his partner and City Mayor – Jim Gordon. As every town needs a Super Hero, every super hero needs a super girl. Here the spice of the story is – “The Bat Girl”. The very essence of this Super hero is that he has no super powers. He uses his intellectuality, smartness and martial art to continuously fight his war on crime. Some of the villains that are worth mentioning in this series are – Joker, Penguin, Two face, the Riddler, Catwoman(not perfectly) and Poison Ivy. Batman artworks are a huge hit amongst the fans.

Being a personal born and brought amidst the super hero imagination, I have always been fascinated by two such comic characters – The Batman and The Superman. The Batman character has more appeal being a normal person living a dual life. There is no super power and the intellectual weapon is more logical than some ET gift by birth. The plots are more centric to real life crimes and the villains have practical issues with the Gotham City dwellers. The basic fight is between the Good and the Evil. The evil surfaces hard but is soon put to rest by our super hero. Sometimes he is stuck, battered and bruised but his constant efforts along with his connections in business ventures and access to police records finally helps him to take over his enemies.
