Batman is a DC Comics fictional character and superhero who first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939. He has since become, along with Superman and Spider-Man, one of the world's most recognized superheroes. Batman was co-created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child led millionaire Bruce Wayne to train himself to the peak of physical and intellectual perfection, don a costume, and fight crime. Unlike most other superheroes, he does not possess superhuman powers or abilities; he makes use of intellect, detective skills, technology, and physical prowess in his war on crime.
