Batman was originally created as a combination of Zorro, Dracula, Sherlock Holmes and the Shadow!
Batman is DC's other famous superhero. Over the years, both Batman and Superman have had an on-and-off again rivalry, although both heroes have eventually developed a grudging respect for each other, and have become friends and allies.
Batman has the secret identity of Billionaire playboy and philanthropist Bruce Wayne who lives in Gotham City. Unlike Superman, Batman is a normal human and uses an array of gadgets, unarmed combat and detective skills to fight crime and evil. While Superman operates within the law, Batman operates outside the law. Also, while Superman compliments Batman's resourcefulness, Batman admires Superman's innate goodness.
