Bat-Mite was a constant annoyance to Batman who always showed up from time to time to give the Dark Knight trouble with his powers. In 1959 he was pulled from the Fifth Dimension along with Mxyzptlk by the Epsilon Eridanites to help find a hero that would help them defeat the Bortan Empire. Two of their representatives have found two worthy candidates in the form of Superman and Batman, and they wanted Bat-Mite to test out Mxyzptlk's hero Superman to find out his worthiness while Mxyzptlk tested out Bat-Mite's hero Batman. Eventually Superman brought the whole contest over to Gotham City, having Bat-Mite's monster fight with Mxyzptlk's. Mxyzptlk decided at that point to create one giant tentacled monster to deal with both heroes. However, both Superman and Batman decided to make themselves look like they were totally defeated and destroyed by the monster so that the Epsilon Eridanites would end up choosing both Mxyzptlk and Bat-Mite as their heroes to take care of the Bortan threat, forever removing them from bothering either Superman or Batman ever again.


Magical powers that allow him to create anything he wants, usually to test Batman's patience.
