The Bat

Real Name: Unrevealed

Identity/Class: Unknown

Occupation: Unknown

Affiliations: An unnamed white bat

Enemies: Satan

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Operates from a secret cave in a hillside at the outskirts of a small farming town called Lexton

First Appearance: Bat Magazine#2 (Cartoon Art, 1952)

Powers/Abilities: His powers include the ability to fly and the ability to "understand the languages of all non-human life" which he uses to talk to his pet white bat.

History: A foe of the supernatural who apparently returned from Hell to battle werewolves, vampires and demons.

Comments: Created by George McQueen, though he fairly obviously taken the story and layout from Dick Ayer's Ghost Rider comic, altering the title character of those stories to turn him into the Bat. Or maybe it was the other way around, as the example I have of this is a story from Magazine Enterprise's Ghost Rider#12 (May-June 1953), while the matching story in Bat Magazine#3 was apparently published in 1952 (per the indicia)?

Thanks to Terry Hooper and Dennis Ray for additional information.
