Personal Quote:

[Talking about uncredited Batman co-creator Bill Finger] "Now that my long-time friend and collaborator is gone, I must admit that Bill never received the fame and recognition he deserved. He was an unsung hero ... I often tell my wife, if I could go back fifteen years, before he died, I would like to say 'I'll put your name on it now. You deserve it.'" See more »

Trivia:

Co-created with Bill Finger the Batman characters James Gordon and Vicki Vale as well as the concept of the Batmobile and Gotham City. See more »
