Hi everybody, and welcome to a new NIL-Tech drawing tutorial: "Batman". For over 75 years, Batman continues to grow as one of the most popular superheroes. Whether it's his devices, his crimefighting skills, or the fantastic Batmobile, there's always something to love about Wayne's alter ego. For almost 80 years, the Caped Crusader has used his massive wealth and obsessive neuroses to put Gotham's many dangerous criminals behind bars.
Here are some interesting facts about Batman:
1. Famous Names. The name "Bruce Wayne" is a mashup of Scottish nationwide hero Robert the Bruce and American revolutionary "Mad" Anthony Wayne.
2. Like Bat-Father, Like Bat-Son. Bruce Wayne's father, Thomas Wayne, was a doctor and heir to the Wayne Enterprises fortune. It's been implied in several comics that Thomas Wayne was himself a masked vigilante.
3. Wayne Enterprises. Wayne Enterprises is rather large as far as fictional companies go. Valued at $31.3 billion, Wayne Enterprises has many, many subdivisions. There is Wayne Medical, Wayne Biotech, Wayne Automotive, Wayne Foods - it has a presence in virtually every sector, and the dollar bills to show for it.
4. Pen and Ink Plutocrats. Bruce Wayne is estimated to be worth $9 billion. This makes him wealthier than the X-Men's Professor Xavier, yet not as wealthy as Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man.
5. The Young Boys (and Girl) Wonder. Since Detective Comics # 38, Batman has often been accompanied by his sidekick, Robin, in his adventures. There have been several Robins over the years. Most of them were orphans Wayne adopted. Current Boy Wonder is Bruce Wayne's biological son, Damian Wayne.
6. Merry Olde Gotham. While lots of people think Robin is named for the bird (citing his red-breasted costume), developer Jerry Robinson claimed both the name and the costume are based on English hero from the woods Robin Hood. The question is how Bruce Wayne feels about stealing from the rich...
