The Byrne Board wonders, just how greedy was Bob Kane?:
“I remember that Bob Kane said in some interview that he created Dr. Death, The Monk, the Batman, and the Batarange. Everyone knows that Gardner Fox created Dr. Death, The Monk, the Batplane, and the Batarange. Why would Bob Kane take credit for things that were really Gardner Fox’s ideas.”
Byrne himself weighs in:
“Having taken credit for everything Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson did, Kane was on a roll!”
Harsh but fair, really. Further in the thread, and needing to be seen to be believed: Kane swipes Todd McFarlane and Kane’s gravestone, which credits Batman’s creation to God.
