I've heard several different theories about when Bruce's birthday is. Does anyone have a solid date from a contemporary comic?? Let me know what you think!
Here's some theories/ old birthdates:

  • February 19th (from an old superhero calender apparently).
  • May 27, 1939 ( from Detective Comics #27 when Batman was 'born')
  • Sometime in October (according to Bruce in 'The Batman')
  • Sometime in November (according to Frank Miller)

@Vespertine: I don't know if 1980 is contemporary enough for you but:
 Detective Comics 494
 Detective Comics 494

While the year will not be 1939, it's gonna be May 27 or November.

I have a theory that every comic character shares one birthday: 29th February.  It explains how they never get older ;)

I wonder what Batman does for his birthday.
something involving violence or hanging out in a graveyard imagine.
it would be funny if he got wasted and went bar hopping as Batman though.

According to Batman Family Vol 1 11 it is February 19th.

Really problematic is Dick Graysons Birthday since it was changed in nearly every origin story.

Bruce Wayne's birthday in the Modern Timeline (post-Crisis, pre-New 52) is February 19th, 1963, to my best reckoning. The anniversary of his becoming Batman is April 6th, 1989. Although all of this was changed in the New 52 and maybe Rebirth? So I'm not sure how relevant this information is :p

Also I think that the November date people might be thinking of is November 25th, when the Wayne's were murdered.
