One reason the hero in the Mask story was not the Black Bat was Thrilling
(the publisher of the Black Bat in the pulps) and DC and made an agreement.
They had both come out in 1939, very close to each other and were
threatening to sue each other over copyright infringement, etc.  When they
realized the characters had been developed independently, they agreed
Batman would never be published in the pulps (the publisher of Detective
comics had and was still publishing pulps, so not a stretch to see it
happen at the time), and Thrilling wouldn't make a comic book our of The
Black Bat.
