In the earliest Batman comics, Bruce Wayne dates the often-imperiled Julie Madison, an actress and socialite who eventually weds into European royalty, much in the manner of Grace Kelly. Julie first appeared in Detective Comics #31 (September 1939), only four issues after Batman's own debut.

39) What Batman villain was originally a world-famous trapper of jungle cats?


Thomas Blake (a.k.a. Catman) turned to crime because he had grown bored with hunting and had squandered most of his fortune. He based his costume on Catwoman's disguise, and she was none too pleased about having her modus operandi copied.

Located on the outskirts of Gotham, Arkham Asylum is a psychiatric hospital where many of Batman's foes are sent for rehabilitation. Unfortunately, Arkham doesn't have a very good track record. Inmates escape on a regular basis, and those who are discharged often return to a life of crime.
