I got the strong impression he was in his late 40s or early 50s by the time of Arkham Knight.

Mid to late 20's in Arkham Origins, 30's in Asylum/City, nearing 40's around about Knight.

Late 30s by Arkham Knight. At most. I don't see how he could be late 40s and still function like he's 25.

Could be wrong, but isn't the time gap -

Arkham Origins - 5 years later - Arkham Asylum - Over 1 year/18 months later - Arkham City - 1 year later - Arkham Knight

Assuming Bruce became Batman when he was around 25 (like in Year One, IIRC), he'd probably be 32 going on 33. Regardless, like MonsterStomp said, I can't see Bruce being above 38/39 and still that physically accomplished.

Let's see... since Origins is a 'Year Two' story, let's assume that Bruce is no older than 30 during Arkham Origins. That would make him 35 in Arkham Asylum, 36 in Arkham City, and 37 in Arkham Knight. Give or take a few years, I think he's firmly in his mid-late 30s.

Going from memory here, but:

  • Bruce had been Batman for two years in Origins. Following general Batman lore, that would put him at 27.
  • There was stated to be between five and seven years between Origins and Asylum. Seven makes more sense given that we have to fit Dick/Jason/Tim into the timeline, so let's say he's 34 in Asylum.
  • 18 months between Asylum/City, so he's 35/36.
  • One year between City/Knight, so he's 36/37.

He is described as being at his overall peak as a crime-fighter in AK, which at 36/7 years old is still somewhat plausible.

Forgot about the period before Origins. Yeah, mid-30s then.

The impression I got from Knight is that he was in his 40s by then, but still in his prime because he’s Batman.

Going by lore, historically he was 26 when he became Batman (not 25 like some people here are saying). We know Origins is two years in so he was 28. Asylum is confirmed to take place 7 years later so 35. 36 a year later in City, and then I guess 37 in Knight.

In Knight? He's probably Mid/Late 40s.

@the_hajduk: @rogueshadow: Well the only canon birthday that Bruce Wayne ever had is february 19th. The scan that Rogueshadow put takes place on Janury 4th, and Bruce has the idea of Batman on March 11th. So technically Hajduk is correct, Bruce was 25 on January 4th and he had his birthday on february 19th making him 26 when he became Batman. Of course if you ignore that birth day he would most likely be 25 during the whole story.

@black_arrow: I knew there was a good reason I thought he was 26.

But Miller has stated that Bruce's birthday is in November. So he was supposed to be 25 when he became Batman in YO (April).

Just saying, Knight takes place barely over a year after City.
