Happy Birthday, Superman!
Some time ago, DC Comics stated in a letter column that Superman's birthday takes place on Leap Day. No, it's not the date Action Comics #1 went to print or anything. It's all a little muddled, but the Superman Homepage is here to give you details.
Thus, every four years, when February 29th rolls around, we get to wish Big Blue the best of birthdays.
I have to say, this looks like an ideal birthday party, if you ignore the guy who is constantly trying to kill you is hiding in the back of the room (get on that, Batman). After all, who wouldn't want to be at a party with this crew?
While Superman is (sadly) a fictional construct, we consider him a pal and we hope that as he exists in the zeitgeist, he's somehow still able to have cake with all his pals.
Happy B-Day, Superman.
