“Batman is the most popular Superhero of all time, and it is an honor to have the U.S. Postal Service feature the Caped Crusader on this new set of stamps in celebration of his 75th anniversary,” DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee says. “Batman has inspired and influenced fans around the world for generations and will continue to do so for the next 75 years and beyond.”

“He is the quintessential American superhero,” says Susan McGowan, the Postal Service’s director of stamp services and corporate licensing. “What a great place to celebrate him — on a stamp. We are always looking for ideas and subjects that are important to America. We all quickly thought, ‘Wow! This will be thrilling.’”
