Untold tale of Bill Finger #5: Bend him, shape him

Because of Batman’s physical prowess, Bill sometimes jokingly called him "Acro-Batman." In at least one instance (see Batman: The Sunday Classics 1943-46, page 193), Batman referred to himself that way as well.

Surprisingly, "the Dark Knight" was the nickname that really caught on.

I wonder how many people know that Bill Finger came up with 'The Dark Knight'. He also coined 'Dynamic Duo' and 'Caped Crusader'.
