Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman was created in 1939 and got his first live-action show in 1966. The series was an immense success and the reason people started loving the character with the black cape. The show housed several iconic gadgets, including the Batmobile, the Bat-Cuffs and the Batarang. Additionally, the show also featured several characters from the Batman comics. His partner, Robin, butler Alfred, and more featured in the show.

As it has become a show in the golden age of Batman, all items in the show are highly valuable. The items from the show cost immense amounts and have been sold off in auctions. One such item was the Batphone from the show. While Alexis Ohanian is a big nerd for superheroes, he was unaware of the auction and could not purchase it, even though the memorabilia was sold for a mere $16,250.

In a post on his Instagram, Ohanian took fans to the past. While Marvel tried to cater to children, one of its product lines confused people of all ages.

In addition to Spider-Man and the Hulk, the Black Widow, Dr Octopus and Galactus all got a special sticker with a dialogue.
