Bill Finger (II) (1914–1974)

Trivia:

He was the visual inspiration for the original illustrations of the super-villain Black Hand/William Hand (created in 1964), one of the Green Lantern/Hal Jordan's foes. Finger was 50 years old at the time. John Broome and Gil Kane, Jordan's creators, paid tribute to Finger mixing Batman's costume with Finger's face. See more trivia »
