Biography » fictional iconical mythological characters » bat boy


Bat Boy has made several appearances in the defunct supermarket tabloid Weekly           
World News. The Weekly World News published patently fabricated stories which             
were purported to be factual. Within the pages of the paper, Bat Boy is                   
described as a creature who is 'half human and half bat'. His pursuers,                   
according to Weekly World News are scientists and United States government               
officials; he is frequently captured, then later makes a daring escape.                   
Bat Boy debuted as a cover story on June 23, 1992. The original front-page               
photo of Bat Boy, showing a creature with a grotesque screaming face, was the             
second-best selling issue in the tabloid's history, and he has since evolved             
into a pop-culture icon. The story of Bat Boy was turned into an acclaimed off-Broadway   
musical, Bat Boy: The Musical.
