BATMAN FACTS YOU (PROBABLY) DIDN'T KNOW

Robert the Bruce, a Scottish national hero and Mad Anthony Wayne, a hero of the American Revolution.

3. The Batcave Debuted on TV
A 1943 TV serial called The Batman introduced the concept of the Batcave, not to mention a skinny Alfred Pennyworth.
4. Batman Beat Darkseid… Twice!
Darkseid is essentially the end boss of the DC Universe, an evil god who can go toe-to-toe with Superman himself. Even though Batman is a mere mortal, he's bested the villain on two separate occasions.
The first time, Darkseid blasted him with his Omega Sanction beams, so Batman shot Darkseid with a god-killing gun. Darkseid's beams sent Batman back in time, but Batman eventually returned to the present and thwarted Darkseid's plans.
The second time, Batman put on the Hellbat armor designed by the Justice League, giving him immense strength at the expense of his own life-force. He was able to brawl with Darkseid long enough to complete his mission, rescuing his son Damian Wayne.
