So Who Is He

So I promised to have something for Monday. Good thing I didn't promise a story post, because I don't have one.

What I do have is a question: Which comic book hero has appeared in the most issues? I doubt the answer will surprise many.

The character is male.

Bill Finger co-created him.

First appeared May, 1939.

The hero is human.

In the 1950s, the hero was rumored to be homosexual, creating a real-life congressional hearing on comic books in general, from Fredric Wertham's book, "Seduction of the Innocent".

He had a live-action television show based on him.

Had many cartoons made.

Several movies.

Drives a really cool car.

Has NO superpowers.

Generally operates at night.

Inspires as much fear as the criminals he hunts.

Puts most of the criminals he catches in an asylum.

By now you must know who it is. But on the chance you don't I'll tell you.

It's Batman.

Had to be the Batman or Superman. And once you said he was human, bingo!

My favorite comics (from back when I collected them, because I was geeky enough to collect the things when I lived in San Francisco) were the Book of Magic and Preacher. Preacher is hilarious and gross at the same time.

Nice idea for a post, Bevie!
