Ah, Man-Bat. He certainly got a boost from comics early 70s fascination with horror, didn't he?
I think trying to shoehorn him in as a hero was a bit of a stretch. Its no wonder hes remained a menace since the early 80s.

Ditko's Man-Bat looks sinister and admittedly goofy at the same time. Kind of odd.

Every Batman comic I bought as a kid seemed to have Man Bat. It didn't hurt that I mostly bought those big Batman family issues.

Y'know, Chris, I don't think I've ever heard Ditko's stuff described better!

(Which I love, by the way; to me, his Spidey & Dr. Strange are the Iconic ones.)

Best,

I've got the first issue of Man-Bat. Wonderful Ditko! He was gone by #2 and so was I.

Considering that #2 was the final issue, you didn't miss much.
