I will look into that once I get to work. It will give me something to do today.

I am kind of curious though what day Batman was born on.

I did some quick checks on a few websites and came up with 19 February as Batman's (Bruce Wayne's) date of birth although it is possible that this is wrong. However, there are certain factors to take into consideration:

- There have been several characters who have been Batman for an extended period of time:

-- Bruce Wayne of the Pre-Crisis Earth-Two (the Golden Age Batman)

-- Bruce Wayne of Pre-Crisis Earth-One (the Silver Age Batman)

-- Bruce Wayne of New Earth (a Modern Age Batman who is thought, until recently, to be dead)

-- Dick Grayson of New Earth (formerly the first Robin, he permanently took on the role of Batman after Bruce Wayne's death, and he is currently Batman)

Each of the above Batmans could have a different date of birth, especially since each was born years apart. As an example, the Golden Age Batman is likely to have been born in the 1910s while the Silver Age Batman is likely to have been born in the 1930s.

In addition, there are many other versions of Batman on many different versions of Earth. On one Earth, Bruce Wayne became a Green Lantern instead of Batman, while on another Batman is a vampire.

Sorry for confusing things. Unfortunately, when it comes to comic books often a question that should be simple to answer ends up being very complicated. Often two (or more) contradictory answers have been correct even when involving the same version of the character.

Often this is due to retcons (retroactive continuity changes) to a character, adding an element in the past that has an impact on current comics. An example of this is that the current Superman first met Lex Luthor when they were adults in Metropolis, now they first met in Smallville when Clark Kent was a teenager. Both answers have been correct at different times.

Ooh, I was born on a holiday (Veteran's Day)... does that mean I'm meant to be famous? Can I charge for autographs like Pete Rose?

And I was born on Queen's day, which means I'm either royalty or a drag.
