May 1st is "Batman Day"
Batman Day is an unofficial holiday which is celebrated annually on May 1st. This holiday honors and celebrates the fictional superhero from the American comic books published by DC Comics and featured in Hollywood movies, television series, cartoons and graphic novels over the last 70+ years.
History of Batman Day
While no one really knows who or when Batman Day was started, it is believed that it was established on May 1st because that is the date on which Batman is believed to have made his appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939.In this first story, the Caped Crusader was introduced to readers as Bruce Wayne, a rich socialite who fought crime – often in brutal ways. As subsequent issues of Detective Comics was introduced, different parts of what would become the Batman legend would become revealed. For example, in July of 1939, readers saw Batman use his utility belt for the first time. In September of that year, readers were introduced to his Bat Plane, as well as one of his primary weapons – the Batarang. In November of 1939, readers were introduced to his origin story – the killing of his parents by a mugger.
In the April 1940 issue of Detective Comics (#38), Dick Grayson was introduced as Robin the Boy Wonder. According to Robin’s origin story, he was a circus performer who was orphaned when his parents were killed by a gangster. Once Robin had joined up with Batman, however, the stories began to change. He transformed from a vigilante who often murdered the criminals he apprehended into more of a father figure to Robin.
In 1940, Batman was given his own comic, although he still continued to be featured in the Detective Comics series. This first issue of Batman introduced readers to both the Joker and The Cat (who would later be known as Catwoman). Over the years, many Batman stories have been released to the public. Most notably, the Batman original series which ran from 1966 to 1968, several animated series’ and more than a dozen feature-length movies – with more being added all of the time.
