Batman was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939. Since its creation, Batman, which is still published to this day by DC Comics, has gone on to become one of the most popular comics in history. Batman, the character, is really Bruce Wayne, a wealthy guy who started fighting crime after he witnessed his parents' tragic murder at a very young age. Batman takes on Gotham City's corruption with trusty sidekick Robin, taking on such villains as The Joker, Penguin, The Riddler, and more. In 1989, Tim Burton brought the Caped Crusader to the big screen, the first edition of a now-long running film franchise. Batman starred Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne and Jack Nicholson as The Joker. It won an Academy Award and made over $400 million at the box office. This original Batman the movie promo shirt from 1989 is in great condition.
