Meanwhile, Batman of the 21st century would still secretly have a lot of money to fund his lifestyle. (Which sounds a lot funnier than pretending to be an astronaut.) Mr. Wayne would also have to modify his suit to create a false image of his body. He will want to borrow George Costanza`s Timberlands to add height. And he has to modify the rest so that his chest, shoulders and maybe even his appendages appear bigger than they really are. Batman`s iconic mask is the first casualty of our modern upgrade. Facial recognition software has been around since the 60s. Today`s versions would easily unravel his true identity, even if only half of his face is visible. And the plethora of powerful cameras, smartphones, and satellites would make capturing high-resolution images of Batman a breeze, even for a nocturnal superhero. A good photo alone would probably be enough for a machine to perfectly match its chin to Bruce Wayne`s. (Amateur detectives would almost certainly unlock it with their eyes. Can you imagine a real person meeting Adam West`s Batman and being deceived by this presentation? Neither do we.) Most of Batman`s major storylines since the 1990s have been intertitle crossovers that work for a number of issues. In 1993, DC released «Knightfall.» During the first phase of the story, the new villain paralyzes Bane Batman, prompting Wayne to ask Azrael to take on the role.
After the end of «Knightfall», the plots split in two directions, following both the adventures of Azrael Batman and Bruce Wayne`s ambition to become Batman again. The story arcs are realigned in «KnightsEnd» as Azrael becomes increasingly violent and is defeated by a healed Bruce Wayne. Wayne handed over the Batman mantle to Dick Grayson (then Nightwing) for a transition period, while Wayne trained for a return to the role.  Bob made him more insecure, because while he was working on Batman, he didn`t share any of the celebrities or money Bob was starting to make, which is why. [He would] [Kane`s job] is gone. [Kane] should have named Bill as co-creator because I know; I was there. It was something I would never forgive Bob for not caring about Bill or not recognizing his important role in the creation of Batman. As with Siegel and Shuster, it should have been the same thing, the same loan of co-creator in the Strip, writer and artist.
While most of Batman`s romantic relationships are short-lived, Catwoman has been his most enduring romance over the years.  The attraction between Batman and Catwoman, whose real name is Selina Kyle, is present in almost every version and medium in which the characters appear, including a love story between their two secret identities in the 1966 Batman movie. Although Catwoman is usually portrayed as a villain, Batman and Catwoman have worked together to achieve common goals and are usually portrayed as romantic. In addition, members of Batman Incorporated, Bruce Wayne`s experience in the franchise of his vigilante justice genre, have occasionally been Batman officials in cities around the world.  Various others have also played the role of Batman in stories set in alternate universes and possible viewers, including various former Bruce Wayne protégés. In Batman`s first appearance in Detective Comics #27, he already acts as a crime fighter. Batman`s origins were first introduced in Detective Comics #33 (November 1939) and later expanded on in Batman #47. As these comics say, Bruce Wayne was born to Dr. Thomas Wayne and his wife Martha, two very rich and charitable celebrities from Gotham City. Bruce grew up in Wayne Manor and led a happy and privileged life until the age of 8, when his parents were killed on their way home from a movie theater by a petty criminal named Joe Chill.
That night, Bruce Wayne vows to spend his life fighting crime. He undergoes intensive intellectual and physical training; However, he realizes that these skills alone would not be enough. «Criminals are superstitious cowards,» Wayne notes, «so my disguise must be able to sow terror in their hearts. I must be a creature of the night, black, terrible… As if fulfilling his wishes, a bat suddenly flies out the window and inspires Bruce to create Batman`s personality.  In 2014, the television series Gotham premiered on the Fox network, starring David Mazouz as 12-year-old Bruce Wayne. In 2018, when the series was renewed for its fifth and final season, it was announced that Batman would appear in the flash-forward of the series finale. In Injustice: Gods Among Us, Batman was originally a close friend of Superman (Superman even asked him to sponsor his child with Lois Lane), but when Superman was tricked by the Joker into killing Lois and destroying Metropolis, their relationship slowly evolved from alienated to antagonistic to enemies.
