Biography | show moreshow less
In 1939, 18-year-old Bob Kane (1915-1998), a born doodler, was challenged by his boss at DC Comics to create a superhero. Kane responded by ingeniously combining the fear of bats and the use of disguises from the 1920s silent films, The Bat and The Mark of Zorro, with drawings from Leonardo da Vinci to create his heroic character, Batman. His renderings of Batman, Robin and their villainous counterparts transcended the fledgling comic book industry. Kane's superhero and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne (modeled on the artist himself), has been the subject of a campy TV series (1966-1968) and a series of Batman films, including Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), Batman & Robin (1997) and Batman Begins (2005), as well as a spin-off film, Catwoman (2004). With the Pop Art quality of his printed work, Kane bridged a wide range of media.
