Artists depict the eyes of Batman's mask as being completely white. When a character looks into Batman's eyes, does he see the color white, or Bruce Wayne's actual eyes underneath?

I've always figured batmans eyes would be covered with some sort of lens to not only protect his eye but to allow some sort of night vision capability. He could even emit a bright light from them to blind you momentarily. I think if Batman grabs you and looks directly into your face then all you would see would be a glass like reflection or haze. Or maybe they are mirrored like police sunglasses! \=\)

He has night lenses in his mask (as do Nightwing and Robin) when they're in use the lenses are green.

That's Flamebirds schtick, though I can imagine Batman nicking it! \:\)

It's all down to the individual artist, and can vary from panel to panel. I think it just depends on how the light hits the lenses.

Bill Finger, Batman's uncredited co-creator, is responsible for the absent eyes.

When Bob Kane sketched his concept drawing of Batman, he presented it to friend and writer Bill Finger. One of Finger's suggestions was to remove the eyes from the character. "Why don't you take out the eyes?" Finger said, "Make him (Batman) look more mysterious."

very interesting but why Bill Finger is uncredited as co-creator?

thanks in advance...

Essentially Bob Kane managed to secure sole credit from DC for the creation of the character.

Thank you, all of you. This is something I've wondered about for a while now.
