Bruce Wayne's Birthday

Dear FList, Brucelove and Batfic friends

I have a dilemma. I have 3 separate dates for Bruce’s birthday

Bruce Wayne/Batman Birthday April 29, 1975

Batman the Character’s first appearance May 12, 1974

Batman the Character’s first appearance May 27, 1939

In arch_schatten’s wonderful new fic she mentions that his birthday is in February.
I am confused and while I know that fic is fic and an AU is a world of your own
making….I want to stay somewhere near canon in my upcoming fic, if nothing else
to have a touchstone for my readers. That and I’ve always loved a little science
(facts) in my science fiction…and in everything else.

So if anyone knows the official date for the birth of Bruce (his middle name is
Thomas, right) Wayne please holla back.

Looking online his modern comics birthday is February 19th.

Thank you. This makes three for the 2/19 date and since three strikes and you're out...2/19 is in for the official date of birth in my fic....That makes his birthstone the amethyst...Yes Bruce would have a dark colored stone LOL

Re: DC Comics Dates of Importance--Part IV

WHOA and Whoa some more. THis is so frecking fantastic and inclusive and encompassing and complete. You've gone way beyond the call of duty here Baby and thanks so much. I've got dates for things I can slide in my fic that I didn't know I wanted to slide in my fic. You just may have added a chapter or two LOL.
Thanks so very much for sharing this and for all the work this emcompasses.
Again like-WHOA

Re: DC Comics Dates of Importance--Part IV

I could have sworn that post-Crisis (pre-reboot?) Dick's birthday was March 23, the first day of spring? Or is that fanon or animated!canon?

I know that's way more than what you asked for, but the original site I got that from seems to have gone away. It wasn't doing anyone else any good sitting on my hard drive.

Now it sits on mine LOL and ^______^

Ah! I knew there was a site with all that on it--it's what made me go online to find the b-day, I knew there was something out there with that info but I must not have bookmarked it. Thanks!

Omg, I love you! That site disappeared on me and made me sad! <3

Share it around. There's no sense in letting somebody's hard work go to waste. :)

According to some research I've done Bruce came back to Gotham at the age of 25. Now we all know first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in May of 1939. Now if he was 25 at the time the that means that Bruce was born some day of February in 1914.
