BURBANK, CA (October 3, 2016) – Many comics fans would argue that without Jack Kirby’s input, creativity and influence, comic books simply wouldn’t be what they are today, and those fans would be right. Kirby was undoubtedly a giant of comic book storytelling, responsible for creating many of the characters and lore that fans enjoy to this day.

While Bruce Wayne might be the most famous Bat in Gotham City, he’s far from the only Caped Crusader to ever swing into action. In the 77 years since Batman’s creation, dozens of characters have tried their hands at becoming the Dark Knight, some by choice, some by force, some practically by accident. Let’s take a look at some of the unsung heroes (and villains) who have tried to take up the cowl, and what their contribution to the Batman myth, for better or worse, might be.
