Batman is 80 years old and venerated across the world

High-rise buildings across the globe (and also in Gauteng) paid tribute to DC’s Comics hero, Batman, by lighting it up with the Batman logo.

The first Batman made its appearance in 1939 and the late Stan Lee ensured the hero lived on with George Clooney, Christian Bale and a few other well-known actors wearing the hero’s suit in various film adaptations of the movie.
