Happy Birthday, Batman!

I was talking to a student recently about the new Star Trek movie (more about that soon!). I mentioned to her that we held a party to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Star Trek way back in 2001 (Click here for photos!). It suddenly occurred to me that this year is the 70th anniversary of Batman. That’s right! The first Batman comic was published in May, 1939 – which means Batman is 70! Happy birthday, Batman!

If you don’t know the story of how Bruce Wayne became the Batman, I recommend you check out Batman Begins , starring Christian Bale.
