Though Mr. Infantino was long famous as a creator of a spate of superheroes — including Batgirl, Elongated Man, Wally West and Deadman — he did not care for the superhero genre very much, a fact he made plain in interviews.
He much preferred humorous figures. Of all the characters Mr. Infantino drew, Mr. Spurlock said, his favorite was Detective Chimp, a simian Sherlock in a deerstalker cap.
