Great-grandson of Bill Finger (and Batman)

Bill Finger, co-creator of Batman, died 1974.

Bill’s son Fred Finger, died 1992.

Bill’s granddaughter Athena Finger, born 1976.

Bill’s great-grandson Ben, born in the 2000s.

For a while, kids did not believe Ben when he said who his great-grandfather co-created.

Last year, on the school bus, a boy told Ben that he read Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman, which mentions Athena. This boy somehow looked up Athena and saw that she was indeed Ben’s mom. 

Now the kids believe Ben.
