First Appearance

The Batman (Movie Serial), April 1943


Note: Initially Batman operated out of a room in his mansion as depicted in Batman #12 (Aug. - Sept. 1942), and stored his vehicles in an underground hanger which was accessed from the mansion and exited through an old barn. After the depiction of a Bat Cave in the second chapter of The Batman movie serial which began in 1943, Bob Kane and Bill Finger integrated the idea of a subterranean base of operations into the Batman newspaper comic strip. The Batcave made it first comics appearance in the pages of Detective Comics #83 (Jan. 1944).
