And isn't that irony for you. Gordon is supposed to be as unwavering and committed to stopping crime as Batman is and he knows who Batman is, but because they are buddies, he lets this violent obsessed vigilante get off.
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
