Joker's age is impossible to pin down. Two-Face is in his 30's, Catwoman is probably in her late 20's to early 30's, and Hugo Strange is at least in his late 40's/mid-to-late 50's.

I'd say Penguin is in his late 50's. Kirk Langstrom is probably around his late 40's to early 50's. I know Ra's Al Ghul was stated to be over six hundred years old...

Pre crisis Langstom was around Bruce age and Catwoman was 6 or7 years younger than Bruce.

Yup :P that's what I assumed. I based all those relative ages on Bats' age in the New 52. (Officially, he's been fighting crime for eight years, now, which should place him in his early thirties.)

I don't think it's been stated how old they are exactly, but New 52 Riddler looks to be about Bruce's age. Give or take a few years.

He's officially 32, unless I'm mistaken.

@battle_forum_junkie: no, you're right! I forgot that I read that. But he's 33 by the end of Robin Rises, right? I believe he's still 32 in Batman proper...

Seriously?!? Has that much time actually gone by in the New 52? Wow, fictional time flies :O

I haven't read Robin Rises but that makes sense. It would explain Damian's absence for the majority of the main Batman title.

I imagine that the Joker was born on the same day as Bruce.

Just because.

He acted as Batman for one year before the Justice League was formed. Then he spent 5 years with them before New 52 began. After that it's probably been 1-2 years in comic book time.

I'd have to say Joker is maybe in his late-30s, Two-Face is in his late-30s, Catwoman is in her mid-30s, Penguin is in his late-30s, Langstrom is probably in his early-40s, and Strange is in his mid-50s.

I like to think of the Joker being unknown. Catwoman in her late 20's since she is a few years younger than Batman. Two-Face is somewhere in his 30's. I think Penguin would be in his 40's or 50's. Harley Quinn in her 20's. Ivy late 20's or early 30's. Same with Scarecrow though maybe mid 30's. Man-Bat probably the same as Two-Face. Ra's is super freaking old. Riddler would probably be the same age as Batman.

How about deathstroke? He has to be in his 40's right? Although I've heard the experiment he had on him slowed his aging

@batman1130: Pre 52 he was probably at least in his late 40s in his first appearance and in his 50s at the End of the continuity, since he had sons that where around Nightwings age.
