Cartoonist. Born in New York City, he was a comic book artist and writer, credited as the creator of the DC Comic's superhero "Batman" character. He was a trainee animator when he entered the comic book field in 1936. Merging with DC Comics action series in 1938, editors were in a scramble for more heroes such as Superman. It was then when Kane who had influences from film actor action characters, conceived "Batman" as a superhero. Writer Bill Finger joined artist Kane and the "Batman" character debuted in DC's Detective Comics series in May 1939, and was a breakout hit. For the decades to follow, he added more characters to the series which evolved "Batman" from comic books, to television shows and many full feature block buster films. He died from natural causes at age 83 in Los Angeles, California. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
