In the ultimate show of disrespect to a guy who was treated constantly with disrespect (he had to beg to get to write an episode of the TV Show) in the industury, the media, and even DC Comics, always incorrectly referred to him as William Finger. His first name was Milton.

It's really a travesty in so many ways that Mr. Finger never got the appreciation and recognition he really deserved - and still does. :cry:

It's a sore spot with me that Batman's credits now say Created By Bob Kane with Bill Finger-- if anything it should be the other way around, or at least AND.
Anyway, good that's he's still remembered, and a valuable lesson for anyone to be sure and negotiate for your own best interests, because many times even your friends don't look out for you.

Glad to see that he is remembered today, but it is a shame he didn't get this recognition when he was alive.

We already know of all the great contributions Finger made to Batman's world, in addition to the fact that he really created Batman. He also created Lana Lang and Lori Lemaris, so Finger also made important contributions to the Superman mythos.
