1950’s


A lot of world’s interest in comics began to wane by the time the 1950’s hit. Although Batman was untouched by this and remained popular. It wasn’t all high sales for Batman in the 50’s though. It was also during this time that Batman went under public attack. Some saw a lot of homosexual undertones between him and Robin. This caused an uproar and led to the creation of Batwoman. She was used as a companion piece for Batman. Like much of the world, at this time Batman comics took a turn away from the pulp and into the world of Science fiction. This decade also marked the first time Batman and Superman teamed up. It was a crossover that would remain popular into our present time.
