By Mental_Floss Studios
Long before Christian Bale had the chance to play him, Batman was made relevant by a man named Michael Uslan. Uslan bought the rights to the character in 1979 when the superhero was woefully unpopular. Thankfully, Uslan, a lifelong fan, wasn't ready to give up on the Caped Crusader, and the rest is Gotham history.
